So, these are jeans unlike any others I own. I'm a huge fan of the racing stripes down the sides, as it truly completes the "90s vibe." The loose fit makes the jeans more casual, adding a worn-in factor essential for a vintage look. Obviously if it's Cotton On, it's not real vintage. But it really does feel good finding something that comes close to the real thing. Or at least what we millennials envision to be the real thing. Because those high-waist babies are just too hard to find for me right now. New vintage store suggestions in the FL area or CT, NY should be dropped here now!
