We always have classic vintage jeans in several feminine models and all in authentic and flattering vintage style.
Our jeans brands: Lady K Loves and Freddies of Pinewood.
Freddies of Pinewood
Freddies of Pinewood is a wonderful vintage denim brand with a penchant for jeans from the 1940s and 1950s. Two vintage collectors and denim lovers teamed up both privately and commercially, and in 1999 founded Freddies of Pinewood where they specialized in making authentic jeans.
WE carry the models Jeanies and Soo Z q, which you can read about here.
Jeanies is a real 1950s rockabilly model in 100% cotton, ie completely authentic without stretch, in return with the most beautiful fit, softness and durability. This model is high-waisted with slim legs, large front pockets and perfect for snooping. They close at the side in true vintage fashion.
Soo Z q is the more slack-like model, also in 50s style and also with a zipper on the side, but with slimmer legs. Again, the fabric is 100% soft cotton, thus giving the desired true vintage feel.
Grease Money - trouser suit
We also carry the fantastic retro trouser suit Grease Monkey, which is from an authentic vintage cut pattern from 1943, and has all the details you associate with a trouser suit from that time, while it seems timeless due to the beautiful feminine fit. This suit is for you who want a real vintage Rosie the Riveter look, or are looking for a vintage jumpsuit that is out of the ordinary.
Lady K Love's High Waist Jeans
Lady K Loves make their jeans in the durable denim, but add a bit of stretch for a comfortable modern fit, thus uniting the best of both worlds! The brand is based on 1950s and rock 'n' roll jeans and in addition, Lady K Loves works towards being a sustainable and socially responsible brand. At their Indian factories, only women work. They use sustainable dyes and locally produced cotton. They also work in the local community to ensure that they have a healthy staff and take care of the environment. The jeans fabric is imported to England, where men and women complete the jeans.
We carry the models Classic, Polly and Le Wild in both classic denim blue and black.
Lady K Loves Classic high-waisted jeans with narrow legs
Lady K Loves classic. It has a high waist and slender legs, and usually fits in size ratio hip and waist, based on measurements from their customers from Lady K Love's Facebook page.
Lady K Loves Le Wild high-waisted jeans with wide legs
Le Wilde is a real 50's western denim with a design based on the original western ranch style jeans. It has a high waist with slightly wide straight legs, it also closes in the best vintage manner on the side. Le Wild is a classic boot cut, which has room for boots underneath, and is really the perfect vintage jeans. It has a bit of stretch for modern comfort.
Lady K Loves Polly high-waisted jeans for smaller girls
The polly model is designed for either the more petit woman where it will sit high, or the "normal" figure who wants a slightly lower waist. This pair of jeans fits more, and is ideal for dressing up at the bottom for the perfect pin-up 50s look.
How do I style my high-waisted vintage jeans?
Classic vintage denim is perfectly styled with, for example, ours Mondo Kaos T-shirt or the beautiful retro print t-shirts from Mischief Made. Put your hair up in a 50s look, or tie a small scarf around your neck to go vintage!
Our jeans can be styled with all styles, but if you want an authentic vintage denim look, you can venture out into the real greaser look and tie the shirt on the belly, for example our shirts from Very Cherry are suitable for this. You can also wear your jeans with our tie bow shirts eg Estelle.
Vintage jeans in durable quality
With the beautiful jeans from Lady K Loves and Freddies of Pinewood, you can be sure to have your jeans for many years to come. You get that one pair of jeans that just fits perfectly and that you will never be able to be without. The look is also, of course, different. In the style of the models from the 40s, 50s and 60s, your look will be characterized by vintage authenticity and rebellious charm that you can not achieve with modern jeans.
In addition, we of course bring in new vintage trousers when our brands show us something we just know you will love.
Jeans or denim?
The word jeans comes originally from Genoa, where merchants traded the heavy cotton fabric they called denim, which was the place where the fabric was made, namely, from Nîmes, or 'de Nîmes'.
The authentic jeans for women
Jeans for women did not appear until 1934, with Levi's understanding that the women on the ranch used the men's jeans, for the hard work. In the 1940s, jeans became popular with women who took care of men's work while at war. Denim was mainly used in factories due to its durable quality.
In the 1950s, jeans and denim became associated with the young rebels thanks to actors like Marlon Brand and James Dean.
Vintage clothing, retro clothing or repro clothing?
As most of our customers already know, our clothes are not "true vintage". This means that it is not secondhand clothing made in the middle of the last century, but reproduced (repro) clothing which is inspired, with great love for the details, by vintage clothing, prints and cut patterns. However, we have found that the vast majority of our customers do not know the term "repro", but use both retro and vintage to describe the clothes we sell, despite the fact that they are newly produced clothes. That's why we do exactly the same here Mondo Kaos. All our clothes are always newly produced, not second-hand, and are primarily inspired by the wonderful, feminine fashion from the 40s, 50s and 60s.
