The History of Vintage Denim Cutoff Shorts

Whether they are distressed, baggy, stonewashed or tight, everybody loves their cutoff denim shorts. Pair  them with a tank-top and sneakers and it is a easy way to look cute and sexy for just about any casual occasion.

Denim Shorts Through History

Denim shorts became popular in the late 1960’s when fashion, style  and art all began to take on a new life of its own. People were fed up with war and politics as usual, the counterculture movement began to take full swing and people began to find ways to express themselves through their style and resourced fashion.

In the 70’s the Daisy Duke denim short became popular because of the famous family TV show – the Dukes of Hazzard, where actress Catherin Bach playing the character Daisy Duke wore a pair of jean shorts every episode. At the time she was playing the role of a sweet resourceful southern girl trying to find an outfit that would work in the hot southern heat. The boys liked the long leg’s and the girls liked the style.

Into the 80’s denim shorts became a fashion icon that was a must have for almost every wardrobe. It wasn’t long before men began wearing cutoff denim shorts as well, some as short as the girls cuts but some were longer.

In the 1990’s the denim shorts took on a new look during the end of the heavy metal era and beginning of the grunge scene. It was no longer popular to wear the short-shorts like the Daisy Dukes, but one could wear longer shorts, almost knee-length and either role them up or worn them torn.

At the turn of the millennium denim shorts took a short hiatus from the fashion scene, but not for long, in 2005 they slowly started to make their way back into hipster and fashion forward girls wardrobes.

Today everyone from the mom and daughter at the park to the supermodel and rockstar on the stage is wearing some form of denim shorts or another.

Historically men were in the forefront when it came to promoting denim fashion, the denim shorts however was primarily promoted by women.

Vintage Jean Shorts

Denim shorts continue to be a hot item among celebrities and fashionistas alike. Regardless of who’s wearing them, the components always remain the same. When searching for blue jean shorts, understand that there are three major components that can make or break a pair of blue jean shorts: denim wash, style/fit, and the minor details. You can also look at history and the most notable blue jean shorts for inspiration.

It is smart to work with the basics, because this is what you are most likely to have available to source, or already have on your shelves. It doesn’t matter if it is mid-thigh, button-fly, or 517 jean, the denim cutt-off short is still a staple for this spring. Pair this with a vintage t-shirt, scout shirt combo, or throw in a flannel and military shirt as a suggestive outwear ensemble.

Volcom Recycle Jean Program

Last year the action sports clothing label Volcom, in collaboration wiht the National Coalition for the Homeless donated over 5,000 pair of jeans to fifty different homeless shelters nation-wide in their Denim Recycle Program called, Give Jeans a Chance”. This year the brand is back with 200 more participating Volcom stores in North America and hopes of collecting 10,000+ pair of jeans. The campaign kicked off on August 1st and runs through the end of September.
We saw other Ecological brands like Factory Vintage and Cream Vintage start this type of donation drive, but it is great to see larger brands jump on the recycle band wagon as well. Volcom retailers will place the denim recycling bin in the store for clients to bring worn or used jeans in decent condtion. If you do, you will recieve a special hat, sticker or button compliments of the “Give a Jeans a Chance Campaign. You will aslo enter a contest to win a years supply of Volcom brand jeans.
