About Tentree

Tentree is a sustainable apparel company for men and women.

In 2011, Kalen Emsley, who was working as a tree planter, reached out to an old friend of his, David Luba, who was living in Hawaii. Kalen wound up catching a flight out, and while there, they were inspired to start a clothing brand that gave back to the earth they fell in love with on that Hawaii trip. And that’s where the idea of Tentree was born.

The next step was roping Derrick Emsley, Kalen’s brother, into the company. Derrick gladly came on as the CEO. The initial support from Emsley’s hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan was overwhelming and offered us an amazing launching pad to get Tentree off the ground.

They are one of the most sustainable brands on the market. Their aesthetic is very casual yet versatile and you’ll be able to find many staples for your closet from their collection.

One of their biggest selling points was the idea of trees being planted for each item purchased.

Tentree Review

I collaborated with Tentree to conduct this review. 

I received the following products to review in this post:

  1. Recycled Nylon Long Jacket ($178) – I received this jacket in Reflecting Pond and I am in LOVE with the deep teal blue color. It’s an oversized jacket and a size medium left me with a lot of room for layering. It’s a perfect transition piece. The material is lightweight and durable. I wish it were packable.
  2. Wide Leg Pant ($88) – The pant is very well made and is super durable. These pants run small. I typically wear a size 6-8 in women’s bottoms. I ordered these in size 8 and they ran very small and fit more like a 6. I recommend sizing up with these particular pants at least 2 sizes, as the waistband does not have any stretch.
