garments are a keystone of the Belle Starr ethos and look--casual, quality, earth-friendly clothes that will remain in your wardrobe for years to come. Cut Loose clothing is sewn and dyed to order in San Francisco and uses dyes that are non-toxic, and they neutralize their waste water so the salt doesn’t corrode the city’s pipes. Fabric tests are repurposed--into scarves, napkins, market bags, even scrunchies--and sold at their factory store. Garments are shipped without hangers or plastic bags, using recycled packaging materials, and even their labeling is minimalist.

Sizing: Cut Loose describes its fit as “implied shape,” meaning the shape of the body is implied in a flattering way. Cut Loose clothes skim the body for a fluid silhouette. When a Cut Loose garment “fits,” it simultaneously flatters the figure and allows room to really move. Customers often wear their typical size in more fitted items (those with darts or body-hugging fabrics or a size smaller in less-structured items with “flowy” fabric.
