though i may not always share the photos on my blog, i have always been obsessed with finding the perfect pair of jeans. for years, i was a j brand devotee. then i had two kids and kinda gave up on denim because my size was fluctuating so much. but now that things are leveling off again, i’ve started searching high and low for the best vintage and vintage-inspired jeans. most days, all i want to wear is a white blouse of some sort with the perfect pair of jeans. i should really post those photos somewhere as proof, but instead, i’m going to share this editorial by mr. larkin that sums it up better than i ever could. i love everything that they do!
i recently purchased my first couple pairs of re/done levis after having coveted them for years. i was really anxious about it because of the price tag, but the fit really is as good as the claims. so far, i have a pair of the ultra high rise and the high rise crop flare, which i promise i will photograph and share more about soon!
and i’ve been a fan of the classic jesse kamm sailor pants for quite a while, so i was really excited when she came out with a pair in 12.5 oz. american denim. i just ordered a pair and can’t wait for them to get here!
also wouldn’t mind trying out b sides, which are featured in this editorial, along with all of the other jeans in the photographs. they’re another brand doing reconstructed vintage jeans and they have a really cute wide leg style i’ve got my eye on!
of course, vintage levis (and wranglers and lee jeans) are also a great and inexpensive option, but i really love a super high rise, so it’s been harder for me to find a pair that fits just the way i want. i’m toying with the idea of getting my tailor to make some alterations to a pair of vintage jeans… we’ll have to see.
