1960s Hip Hugger Jeans

 

 

 

It wasn't really until around the mid 1970s that the waistline on jeans rose higher. Before that, hip huggers of the late1960s were the style, but unlike today's superlows, or super too-lows, they actually rode at the hip, and this pair has a moderate 9" rise.  In a dark indigo wash with orange stitching, they sport a pair of welted slash pockets at the hip just below the waistband and nice, wide belt loops to accommodate a wider belt. Waist is 35", hp (at bottom of zipper) is 39", inseam is 33". 100% cotton, label indicates to allow 3-5% shrinkage. Mint, unworn condition with tag attached. $130
