new old jeans


An article in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend about the resurgence of vintage denim posed the question: "Is this the beginning of the end of skinny jeans?" Regarding that question, my guess is no. But lately I have been wishing I had never thrown out my Levi's 501's from yesteryear, which looked similar to the ones in the above picture. I've also been on the hunt for some vintage-looking--i.e., looser-fitting, straight-leg, faded wash--replacements. My latest finds include these from J.Crew (30% off!), 6397, Citizens of Humanity, 7 For All Mankind (or these) Victoria Beckham and, of course, Levi's
