Jeans seem to slowly be getting more relaxed. The low-rise slim-taper diehards have stayed strong, but many denim brands have begun to offer more comfortable and relaxed cuts that fit better on a wider range of bodies. But even beyond that, it looks like baggy jeans are making a comeback.
Back in 1988, Levi’s introduced the Silver Tab collection, a sub-brand that attempted to capture the styles of both Hip Hop and Grunge with baggy and washed out jeans. Now, Levi’s Japan is reviving this classic line with different jeans cuts in washed denim and two graphic tees. So far, it looks like there are two regular 5-pocket jeans and one carpenter pant.
Levi’s Japan has resurrected a chapter of denim history that has oft been neglected, which will surely be a gift to those of us who have been feeling a little claustrophobic in our current jeans.
Currently only available in Levi’s retailers in Japan.
