There’s nothing quite like a great pair of vintage jeans. And unfortunately, the “real” vintage jeans usually come with a hefty price tag. AND there is always that dilemma: you may find the perfect wash, but it’s not your size. Or vice versa. We’ve all been there, done that, right!
But, thankfully, nowadays most denim brands are coming up with a perfect replica of real vintage denim, albeit in a fashionably updated fit and style. Like these bad boys from Current/Elliot, the High Waist Vintage Crop Slim Jeans.
Cut from light-blue denim, Current/Elliott’s cropped pair sits high on your waist and has the brand’s trademark love-worn feel. They’re gently whiskered and have distressed detailing at the pockets, knee, and at the back of the hems.
The jeans are made of 100% cotton, so they will not really fit super tight, but rather a bit loose and very edgy looking. That’s why they are aptly called slim jeans and not skinny jeans.
But if you’re not a rigid denim girl and this is not what you’re looking for, don’t despair. These very same jeans also come in a stretch version, made of Japanese stretch denim, see last image below.
The Vintage High Waist Crop Slim Jeans made of faded Japanese denim and featuring a mere 2% stretch, which still gives you the authentic denim feel, but providing you with a bit more flexibility.
