We’ve probably already mentioned that we stock jeans in pretty much every cut, colour and wash under the sun (find your style here). But if you like your denim with more of a lived-in look and feel, it’s time to get better acquainted with the vintage jeans available at ASOS Marketplace. Take a look at our crop of the best independent boutiques pedalling awesome new, unique and second-hand finds on site.
If it’s jeans with history you’re after, look no further than Yorkshire-based purveyors of vintage denim Working Class Hero. These thrift-shop-snooping cat obsessives offer a killer crop of Levi’s 501s – a style that the ubiquitous brand has recently refreshed with a tapered option – and are the first and last word in casual clobber.
Designed in London, crafted in Portugal, Trikki is emerging as one of the go-to brands for denim-loving hipsters across Europe. They take premium denim and use it to craft jeans with a streetwear twist. Think straight-leg styles with gentle tapering and an oh-so-cool low-slung waist, like these. And all with the addition of an over-dyed, vintage vibe.
You can’t operate an independent menswear boutique without giving it a bizarre name (tick) and a killer collection of jeans (double tick). Vintage Carrot lives by the ethos ‘fashion that gets better with age’, so it should come as no surprise that its USP is a passion for second-hand denim including ankle-grazing, wide-legged options for the more fashion-forward customer.
