Crippen Trunk Show | Susie Crippen

We are so excited for the Crippen Trunk Show on Saturday, October 25th, and wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the founder and Creative Director, Susie Crippen. Susie will be joining us the day of the Trunk Show.

Before Crippen, Susie was one of the founders of J Brand. She created Crippen when she discovered women’s need for a pair of of jeans that were comfortable and never hid their shoes. Her creativity comes from logic and what women want/need from their clothing.

Below is an interview Susie did with Jean Stories. She shares her jean styles, as well as how she came up with the name for a pair of our best selling jeans: Little Dude.


Walk us through your jean styles…

There’s the Little Dude and the Stevie, which is long and a little bit baggier and has a trouser pocket. There’s the JP, and there’s the Eli, which I wore for this shoot. It hits stores in June. The Eli to me is a really important fit because nobody else is making a jean like it, with a seam, and a crop, and a higher rise.

Let’s talk about Little Dude. If you could sum up Little Dude in one word what would it be?

Perfect? [laughs] They kind of are.

If they could say something about you, what would they say?

Hm. Well, I think that I’m always surprised by how much my animals love me. It’s sort of the same feeling with my jeans. Like, my clothes are really important to me. They would say, This is where I belong.

We love the name Little Dude.

Do you want to know where the name came from?


My friend Jeff Poe, of  Blum and Poe and I were at a dinner one night and I was teasing him because he loves hanging out with dudes. His friends are all these dudes. And then later than night when I said goodbye, he said to me, See you later, little dude. I thought right then that I would name a jean that.

Did you know then how that jean would fit?

Well, the reason I created the Little Dude – and the original is in rigid, raw denim – is because I wanted a slim skinny, but I didn’t want it to be tight. It’s supposed to be a little slouchy, the knee is tighter when you buy it so you can stretch it out.
