Of course, finding the perfect pair of vintage jeans is easier said than done. Some denim can be boldly expensive, depending on the year and designer, and you can't always trust the size on the label—especially when most vintage denim is made from rigid, zero-stretch cotton. Not that we’re complaining: Denim is such a tried-and-true wardrobe staple, it’s an investment worth making.

"A true denim quality piece that will last for a long time is well worth it," Julian Guevara, vice president of direct-to-consumer at What Goes Around Comes Around, says. The New York City–based vintage mainstay offers an extensive range of vintage denim, which usually falls somewhere between $200 and $2,000. Though it’s not impossible to find a great pair of vintage denim online, it often takes a lot of digging. And even then, keep in mind that the perfect pair may need some additional tailoring. For now, find the best vintage denim to add to your wardrobe ASAP ahead.
