The thing about vintage jeans is, if you don’t really have the time to hunt down a good pair (and potentially get them tailored), finding the right fit can take a few tries. To make life a little easier, Aritzia teamed up with denim brand Citizens of Humanity on a mini collection of jeans that have a vintage look without the actual vintage history.
The line, which falls under Aritzia’s in-house label, Wilfred, includes three styles: The Cleo (a high-rise slim fit), the Aida (a stretchy skinny jean), and the Liv (a cropped straight leg made of premium Japanese denim). They’re nothing overly fancy — just easy, simple jeans.
