The start of the new year is the perfect time to revamp and refresh your style. And what better way to do it than with a wardrobe staple like denim? While popular brands like Levi’s and Gap have remained classics in our closets for years, like us, you may be itching to try something new. Among these classic jean brands to choose from includes MOUSSY VINTAGE, a Tokyo-based brand that specializes in premium denim. Since 2016, the brand has disrupted fashion’s gender norms by approaching womenswear with a traditionally men’s style. And just in time for the new year, the brand just launched a new denim style for us to consider.

MOUSSY VINTAGE Logan Wide Straight

Fitted around the hips and waist, the jeans taper down the leg to give a relaxed and straight fit. Named the Logan Wide Straight, the denim is a dark wash – imitating the worn-in look that takes years to acquire, without the hassle. What’s unique about this particular style is that it features an asymmetrical back pocket detail: one side has a shadow pocket overlayed with a pocket and the other is a regular pocket.  

Additionally, the jeans are not only woven with a cowhide leather label but also tradition and heritage. This pair of jeans is made from Japanese denim. MOUSSY VINTAGE produces their denim from a southern Japanese mill that was established over 100 years ago. 

And for those who are shopping with the environment in mind – the Logan Wide Straight checks that box as well. Like other products in their collection, this pair of jeans is environmentally conscious. MOUSSY VINTAGE shares that they work with socially responsible denim manufacturers, washhouses and leather factories that work to limit the environmental impact. Specifically for this style, the brand worked with a wash house that cleaned the water before disposal and leftover leather from local farms.    

The style is exclusively available to purchase at MOUSSY’s New York SoHo store and online.
