A FASHION fan spent thousands on merchandise from Khloe Kardashian’s Good American brand, only to be disappointed by the weird fit of the items and the high price point.
She mixed and matched the pieces into seven outfits that ranged from fashion-forward to bizarre and – literally – loud.
Naomi Jon, a German YouTube star, ordered a huge haul from Khloe’s Good American brand.
The blogger paid € 1,900.63 euros for 11 products, which came out to $2,062.98 USD.
That figure included customs and shipping fees, and Jon noted that what she paid in euros may be slightly lower or higher than what customers in the US would pay.
Mixing and matching the pieces into seven outfits, Jon was startled at times by the disparity in how each item of clothing fit her, and noted that few of the Good American products were made in the US.
“I’m not a Kardashian expert, but I’m here to test their products,” Jon explained at the beginning of the video.
Jon had reviewed another popular Kardashian brand, SKIMS, but hadn’t heard of Good American until recently, despite its 2016 launch.
Jon immediately compared Good American’s packaging to that of Kim’s sister brand, calling Khloe’s brand “not very romantic” in its initial presentation.
“They came in two of these plastic bags,” Jon said, holding the plain sacks up for all to see. “Not even branded plastic bags.
Viewers could hear Jon’s first outfit before they saw it.
“If there’s one thing I am right now, it’s definitely noisy as f***,” the blogger said as she walked onscreen in a pair of loose jeans a black vinyl top.
The jeans were “definitely a bit big,” Jon said as she hiked them up around her waist.
But the tiny, uncomfortable top was the weakest point of the ensemble.
“Especially if I lift my arms, it’s almost not bearable,” she said, tugging where the center portion of the shirt pinched her chest.
“Cute top, but not wearable because of immense pain,” Jon admitted.
The tags on the pants indicated they were made in Turkey, while the vinyl top was made in California.
“I thought jeans were going to be the OG, 100 percent American-made,” a surprised Jon said.
Converted from euros to USD, the pants cost around $186, while the shirt cost $107.
Jon described the next look, a light purple jumpsuit, as “yassified janitor.”
“I feel like this is very Kardashian,” Jon said. “Of course on me it looks very pedestrian.”
While the quality of the material was nice, Jon found the fit to be unflattering, especially on the legs.
“It’s not baggy, but it’s not tight,” she said.
For the price Jon paid, around $190, she was “definitely not a big fan.”
The matching set Jon tried on next was “very 2018.”
“I guess I’m bringing camouflage back,” Jon declared.
Both the camouflage jacket and pants were made in China, while the white crop top, which Jon bought to match with a different outfit, was made in the US.
“I think 2018 Naomi would’ve loved this,” Jon said – though not at the price she paid, which was $368 for both pieces in the set.
“Remember what I said about the first outfit?” Jon called from offscreen to introduce her next set.
“Don’t worry, I found something else that’s a bit noisier,” she announced as she walked onscreen in a white top and underwear, with see-through trousers over them.
Jon wore her “rainy weather pants” with the matching white set, and while she loved the look from the front, she was disappointed in the rear view.
“It’s not very flattering,” Jon mused. “It’s more like flattening.”
She also noted that there was a wide “gap” in the back waistband of the plastic pants – something Khloe herself has been vocal about trying to solve with Good American products.
If the $169 price point on the pants didn’t make Jon sweat, the material definitely did.
“It’s not raining outside the pants but inside of them,” she joked.
Of the two swimsuits Jon purchased, one was a hit, and one was not.
“I don’t feel super sexy in this,” she said while trying on the purple suit.
The suit felt too small, but Jon did like the comfortable padding in the chest, which wasn’t visible to the naked eye.
“It covers a bit more,” Jon explained.
The green halter swimsuit was a surprising favorite for Jon, who thought the stretchy fabric was uncomfortable at first.
She loved the way the “always-fits monokini one piece” fit her body – and that it was made in California.
“I really actually like this,” Jon said. Both swimsuits were around $119.
The final outfit Jon tried on was a disappointment that epitomized the fit issues she experienced throughout her shopping experience.
Sporting a pair of hugely baggy jeans and a blazer top, Jon said, “I thought this would give me a sexy businesswoman look.”
But the sleeves and chest on the blazer were too long, while the loose pants barely touched her body.
Jon did say that, in a different outfit, she might like the jeans.
“The cut itself, this way too oversize thing, is vibe-y,” she said.
After trying on the $186 jeans and $292 blazer, Jon had reached her conclusion for the brand as a whole.
“It’s just really way too expensive,” she said. The goods might be of value to a big Kardashian fan, but not to her.
She also noted that the majority of the items she tried on were made in China or Turkey – not the US.
“It feels like a strategy to come out with a brand that’s 100 percent ‘American made,'” Jon said, then “sneakily” change manufacturers.
