1970s Boho Textile Trimmed Denim Jeans

 

 

 

 

There is a lot to be said about the flattering fit of high waist jeans.  And of course, in our book, there is nothing like the original versions from the 1970s.  Denim blue, faded up to the sky, with a bit of nylon in the fabric to keep them comfortably hugging your hips, they have been lengthened with a gorgeous vintage ikat fabric at the hem.  A hand woven middle eastern wool textile in shades of cinnabar, sage green, gold and brown with touches of plum, grass green, and taupe.  Pieces are similar but unique, making each leg a fraternal rather than identical twin to the other. The jeans have a straight leg and a flat front devoid of pockets for that long, lean line we adore.  Waist measures 26", hip 38", inseam 33", rise 12",  total length 44".  Excellent, aged vintage condition.  $245
