Moussy SS21 Fit Guide

Hip Hip Hooray! Everytime we get new arrivals from Moussy Vintage, it feels like a holiday.  Everyone's favorite handmade, hand distressed Japanese denim has showed up in a big way with our latest haul of new styles just in time for a spring refresh. Known for their intricate and unique signature distress and rigid fabrications, particularly their use of premium selvage denim, Moussy has become our go-to jean that lasts a lifetime. This week, we want to give you a little sneak peek and walk through of three new styles with exciting new washes, details and cuts. We wish we could show you them all, but you’ll have to make your way into the shop to see what else we have.
Pavilion - Moussy Prichard

Prichard Skinny - Black

  • These moody washed black skinnies are made using a concoction of cotton (95%) and polyester (4%) with 1% spandex resulting in the perfect “comfort stretch” jean. 
  • With a rise of 9.2” and an inseam of 26.8”, these comfortable ankle crops sit right above your hip line at an easy mid rise. The overall slim straight leg shape will hug your body nicely without over constricting your calves and ankle.  
  • Cut in an easy to outfit, grayed out black fabrication with a finished hem, these skinnies are perfect for someone looking for a cleaner, darker jean with tiny hits of distress.
  • Like the majority of Moussy styles, these will feel incredibly rigid at first wear.  Be aware that over time they will soften and stretch subtly. We almost always recommend going as small as what’s comfortable.


Hammond High Waisted Skinny - Blue

  • Atypical for Moussy, the Hammond feature a much higher rise of 10.4”  for a more fashion aesthetic that will sit comfortably high and slightly pinched at your natural waist. 
  • This is the perfect jean for someone on the hunt for a more classic washed blue jean with a tapered straight leg shape and finished hem. 
  • Featuring Moussy’s signature distress, the Hammonds add a little bit of a twist with a slash at the upper thigh backed and reinforced with woven fabric creating a “faux” hole for a more modest finish.
  •  Similar to our other two styles, the Hammonds feature the same fiber content for ease and comfort.  Keep in mind that these will stretch and contour your body without losing their shape.

Altawoods Skinny - Light Blue

  • For the lover of distressed, light wash summer denim, the Altawoods are a lightweight stretch fabric that feel rigid at first.
  • Made using the same blend of cotton, polyester and spandex as the Prichards, these tapered skinny jeans fit smaller and will feel a bit softer on the body due to the lack of dye.
  • Featuring tastefully placed knee rips and smaller placed hits of distressed in the upper leg, these bleached out light wash jeans are an ideal casual staple. 
  • These ankle crops feature an inseam of 26.5” finished with a frayed hem with a low to mid rise of 8.3”.
  • These are running a little bit small, so we recommend sizing up if between sizes for a more comfortable fit, with the expectation that these will soften even more and grow with wear.
