As you know, I’ve always admired the Japanese brand Moussy Vintage, from afar, and have always thought the washes on their jeans are incredible. They manage to get that authentic, vintage, lived in feel, from a brand new perspective. That’s incredibly hard to do, and most brands can’t get it right, but Moussy Vintage definitely do. So much so that I have fallen hard for this particular pair of jeans!
These are the Moussy Vintage Saluda Skinny Jeans in Blue, which just recently got released on Revolve, and aren’t they incredible? Usually their jeans are a 100% cotton denim, but these are a 99% cotton and 1% spandex blend, making them a lot more comfortable. They are a traditional 5 pocket style with a zip and button fly, with the measurements coming in at a 27″ inseam, a 9″ rise, and a 10″ leg opening. This is pretty much my favourite cut and measurements for a pair of jeans, so they sound absolutely perfect to me!
Getting to the wash though, which is what has me obsessed, how amazing is it? The whiskering on the lap, the faded thighs, the distressed areas, the honeycombs, even the impression of a phone in the back pocket has been rubbed into this wash and it’s jaw dropping. It would take you over a year to create something as beautiful as this masterpiece from a pair of raw jeans, so if you don’t have the patience, go with these!
The only down fall for me though is the price, they come in at $444 which is £340 in the UK, so they are extremely steep for premium denim, but I do understand why. To create something as amazing as this work of art, it takes time, and they only use the best Japanese denim, so it is justified, but unfortunately quite out of budget. Have any of you tried Moussy Vintage yet? I would love to know what your opinions on the brand are!
