Not to brag, but we have the best customers. The people we dress are thoughtful, brilliant, weird, ambitious, charming, supportive, and curious (join our community Slack workspace if you want proof). They also happen to be hilarious—and often, they sing the praises M.M. clothing better than we ever could.

Here are 27 real customer quotes that encapsulate why we want to be friends with each and every one of you.

Some fell in love with pants…

“Never in a million years would I have tried the Zhou culottes, which seemed quasi-clownish until I put them on. Then, WOW—slap my ass and call me Bozo, I love these babies!”
A customer who has found her fit.

“I love the Chester pants more than a person should love an item of clothing. Frankly, it’s unhealthy.”
—A customer who loves stretch linen the exact right amount.

“I don’t know what kind of sorcery is going on there in NYC, but somehow you folks managed to design a pant that fits me in the waist, butt, thighs, AND length. So much yay, keeping these.”
—A customer who’s discovered the magic of the Foster pants.

“My 10 year-old son just now: ‘Mom! You look so tall! And so…cool!’ Music to a short mom’s ears. Thank you, Milo jeans.”
—A customer who feels ten feet tall.

“This may be the greatest pant since the invention of butts.”
—A customer who looks incredible in the Hockley jean.

...while others just fell in love.

“You guys always put a pep in my step. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way about a brand before. I feel like I’m telling my first crush how much I like them. Except this time, it’ll last longer than it did the summer after seventh grade.”
—A customer who should know: the crush is mutual.

“M.M. and I have a long love story. You’ve been with me when I was a new manager and wanted to step up my game, through countless client presentations, two promotions, business trips, and pregnancy. I can count on my M.M. pieces to support me in ways that humans or White Claw cannot.”
—A customer with a diverse support system.

Black and blue should totally just get a room together already. Love them together.”
—A customer with excellent matchmaking skills.

“My students have come to recognize my M.M. pieces. When I wear them, someone will inevitably ask, ‘Is it from That Place?’ And the tone is reverent.”
—A customer who has found her look.

“I don’t understand. Do you put drugs in these dresses? What’s not to love?”
—A customer who’s hooked.

Some knew they looked great, and they weren’t afraid to show it.

“Hubba hubba. This dress makes me look and feel like a boardroom warrior goddess.”
—A customer who’s commanding the room in her Noel dress.

“Between the color and the lines, the Emily dress makes me feel like a Maserati. (Not a flashy car, but an elegant work of art.) I may never take it off.”
—A customer who’s ready for the fast lane.

“I feel like a goddamn unicorn.”
—A customer who’s found her one-in-a-million conference outfit.

“People have been telling me all day that I ‘look so nice,’ but all I did was stuff my hair in a high bun and slip on an Etsuko.”
—A customer who knows the power of a one-and-done dress.

Some got down to business.

“I am 29 and about to oversee a legal department of over 100 lawyers, including a dozen direct reports who are men older than I am. I need to convey ice queen, boss, power, and don’t-mess-with-me.”
—A customer who came to the right place.

“I’d love to try one of those jardigans! The patriarchy keeps our office pretty chilly.”
—One cool customer.

“My career goals include being ‘that cool professor with high expectations,’ so it’s time for the Para.”
—A customer who’s dressing for the job she wants.

“The Rowling top really captures the ‘I look great, but you are in no way invited to have opinions about my figure’ vibe we’re so fond of in D.C.”
—A customer who does, indeed, look great.

A few people got excited about innovations that should have happened long ago...

“People complain that we don’t have flying cars yet, but I’m pretty thrilled with professional-looking shoes that don’t hurt my feet.”
—A customer who recognizes a good invention.

“Shout out to M.M. for this blazer that I folded and packed in the bottom of my purse for a one-night work trip and has ZERO wrinkles this morning. And shout out to me for learning how to fold a blazer (thanks Internet, you’re good for something, I guess).”
—A customer with a newfound skill.

...while others cut ties with the people they were long ago.

“I’m wearing all M.M. to my college reunion, because I want to convey that I’m a poised, successful adult who doesn’t do keg stands anymore, thank you very much.”
—A customer who’s matured.

Some discovered new uses for their pieces...

“I love the Rowling top. It also looks great backwards, which is how I tried it on accidentally.”
—A forward-thinking customer.

“The Soho skirt is like wearing magic. Other people see a gorgeous, draped skirt. But I know what I’m really wearing: my favorite post-Thanksgiving-dinner sweatpants.”
—A customer who’s one step ahead.

Shop similar styles: the Dylan dress and Koio sneakers.

...and others got the most out of their favorites.

“I wear my jardigan so much that my husband asked what happened to all the other sweaters in my closet.”
—A customer who’s minimizing her cost per wear.

And finally, some accessed their superpowers…

“Every time my Aditi dress is in the washing machine, I feel like Wonder Woman washing her cape.”
—A customer who’s ready for lift-off.

“Do modern superheroes wear capes? No. They wear the Jensen Trench!”
—A customer with a signature power outfit.

...while others celebrated their unique personalities.

“The devil might wear Prada, but the cat-loving thespian wears M.M.LaFleur.”
—A customer who gets us.
