80s High Waisted Jeans, Embellished - med

SKU: 00815-002

Authentic 1980s denim jeans customized back then by the original owner, my friend Millie. They feature:

  • A seriously high rise. These are legit high-waisted, not the 2021 variety that barely reach your belly button. Check out that mile-long zipper (ok, 7.5"/19cm)*
  • Lace, ribbon, fringe, flowers and more trim the three front pockets.
  • Two back pockets were left as-is.
  • Gusset added in the crotch -- how high a rise can you get!?
  • Typical 80s cut with easy fit and wide, tapering legs. Don't forget your scrunch socks (worn on the outside, FYI).

*The ridiculous little nubbin of a zipper we see on most modern jeans isn't a fashion statement. It's an indication of cheap construction and cost-cutting.

These jeans are just begging to be worn with this embellished jacket. Contact us for a deal on both pieces. 

Labels: I see no any indication of the original brand, but she assures me they were not home-sewn, only home-embellished

Fiber/Care: 100% cotton denim -- the heavy kind that lasts / washable

Condition: minor signs of wear, all visible in photos

*These embellished 80s jeans are clean and ready to wear.*
