“Dear Old Navy, I do not like that the front pockets of the girls jeans are fake,” Gardner wrote in her letter to the retailer. “I want front pockets because I want to put my hands in them. I also would like to put things in them. Would you consider making girls jeans with front pockets that are not fake. Thank you for reading my request.”
“Thank you so much for taking the time to write us about pockets on girls’ jeans,” Wood wrote in her response. “The Old Navy Kids product team appreciates your information. It’s great feedback for us as we develop new product.”
The letter was part of a persuasive writing assignment in her first grade class at Evening Star Elementary School. (Bentonville Schools)
In its Facebook post, Evening Star Elementary praised Gardner for her letter.
“Now, that’s using your voice!” the school wrote. “Way to go, Kamryn!”
“Kamryn, you proudly own those pockets!” the district wrote, in part. “Kudos to Old Navy for making this first grader’s day and ours!”
Old Navy spokesperson Sandy Goldberg told Fox News: “Our design and product teams love hearing feedback from customers, especially young people like Kamryn, and take suggestions into consideration as we work on future product.”
Goldberg added that Old Navy does offer several denim styles with pockets including straight, bootcut and jegging styles.
