1970s Belled Denim Sailor Jeans

 

 

We have to believe our obsession to find the perfect pair of jeans began in 1975 after meeting the girlfriend of our boyfriend's older brother. We were the same age, but she seemed infinitely more worldly seeing as she was dating an 'older man' - or maybe he was just immature. But the thing we remember most was her jeans. Sailor style with a lace up front, perfectly faded and molded to her shape like a glove. We've been on the hunt for 'em ever since and finally found them, though as luck would have it, not in our size. Dark blue denim topstictched in white with a white shoestring lace up front and a notch in the waist at the back.  They're slim through the hips, with a wide leg flaring to a huge bell of 26" at the hem. Adorable. The waist is 28", hip 36.5", rise 12", inseam 34". Excellent condition. $120
