    Great black jeans!

    Posted by Arianna on 28th Apr 2024

    I have been looking for a vintage or repro pair of black selvedge jeans that were a similar shape to the rib cage Levi’s. I love these so much and they are a great price. The only thing I wish was different on them is the zipper, I would have loved for them to have been button fly. Everything else is great! The fit is great, I referred to the size guide provided here

High-waisted wide leg jeans

Capturing the essence of an American classic re-envisioned through Japanese artisanship, TCB’s 50’s Norma jeans are a homage to the original women’s jeans, the Levi’s 701, meticulously crafted to exactly reproduce the original fit and construction. Known as a staple of Marilyn Monroe’s wardrobe and an iconic fixture of ‘50s fashion, these black selvedge jeans are not just an article of clothing; they're a piece of living history. For this release, TCB has produced a limited run of the Norma jeans in black for the first time, offering an exciting new twist on the classic.

Made in Kojima, Japan, from TCB’s proprietary 11-ounce selvedge denim and sulfur-dyed black on both the interior and exterior of the fabric, these jeans will retain their pitch-black hue before gradually fading to deep grey. TCB’s dedication to historical authenticity shines through in the smallest details, including the handcrafted paper patch, hidden back pocket rivets, basket-woven white selvedge ID, and period-accurate Gripper Zipper fly.

Perfectly replicating the classic fits of the 1950s, these jeans have an extra-high rise, a snug waist, ample room through the hips, and a straight leg. Their flattering, curved fit harkens back to glossy magazines, I Love Lucy, and the glamour of the postwar era. For those more acquainted with wider modern waistlines, we recommend sizing up for a balance of comfort and vintage flair.

To ensure you find your ideal match, we've provided a comprehensive sizing guide with detailed measurements for each size. We suggest comparing these measurements to your favorite pair of jeans for a reliable reference point. Our goal is to not only sell you a pair of jeans but also help ensure a perfect fit, as if they were tailor-made for you. We measured each pair of our actual stock to make our TCB 50's Norma jeans fit guide with measurements to help you get your sizing correct.
