    Low waist jeans

    Go low! Our low waisted jeans are perfect for channelling ur inner Y2K-babe. Low rise baggy jeans, straight, or low waist utility style? Just think of all those pockets! <3

    Mid waist jeans

    Mid waist, mid rise, regular waist – the mid waisted jeans are true favourites and everyday wardrobe heroes – no matter what u’d like to call them.

    High waist jeans

    We love it when jeans go high waisted. Whatever the leg or fit, the higher the better for that cinched waist look. High waisted jeans = a style that suits everyone.

    Low waist or high waist – a wide leg is the way to go. Just ask our on-trend Naoki or classic Yoko.

    Good q! As for all good q’s, we have a long answear (in fact, no less then 3 answers!) for ya:

    Full length jeans

    All our lengths are based on an average height of around 168 cm, but full length jeans can be slightly different depending on the jeans style.

    Full length wide leg: Can reach the whole way to the floor
    Full length tight leg: Are slightly shorter, as there is a foot in the way.


    Ankle length jeans

    Ankle length jeans are not meant to be full length.
    Taiki ankle length jeans are meant to reach around your ankle


    Tall jeans

    Some of our most loved jeans styles are available in a Tall version. They are 5 cm longer than the original fit.

    Taiki Tall Jeans is still an ankle length style but designed for a person who is taller than 168cm.


    As with all our jeans, you’ll find the info on the specific product page <3

    The truth is: jeans don’t need to be washed that often. The best way to keep your jeans (and the environment!) in shape, is to remove stains if they appear, and air your jeans out or put them in a plastic bag in the freezer for 24 hours, to remove any odour and possible bacteria.

    The lesser you wash your jeans, the better the colours and fading will look, the better they’ll mold to your body – and the better for the environment. When you do wash your jeans: 30ºC is totally fine with today's efficient detergents.

    Read more about garment care and reducing your environmental footprint while caring for ur jeans.

    U’ve probably heard the whisperers: “A pear-shaped body shouldn’t wear x,y, and z, or “An apple shape looks great in jeans that are z,y, and x.” Since we don’t agree with bodies being fruits (+ we like speaking out rather than whispering) we say it’s your body: u do u.

    If the jeans don’t sparkle when trying them on, they’re probably not ur type of jeans. Your body, on the other hand, is awesome – regardless of the so-called type. <3

    Check out our previous collabs on the topic different gals rocking different types of garments, or taking a stand for self-love:

    Mom jeans are one of our most loved jeans fits, going back to the roaring 80s and still rocking it.

    The Mom jeans fit is high waisted, with a slightly different placement of the back pockets compared to other jeans styles: smaller and angled pockets give the bum a different silhouette. The Monki Taiki jeans are a perfect example of mom jeans, having a relaxed fit around the bum and thighs, while being fitted around the waist.

    Go ahead and explore all our awesome mom jeans, like our ankle length jeans-babes Taiki. And yes, they’re called Mom jeans ‘cause your mom probably wore them back in the days. <3
    Glad u asked!

    Short answer: What should you wear with mom jeans, well anything u can think of!

    Long answer: Since they’re awesome and high-waisted, we like pairing mom jeans with a cute crop top, tank top, or a half-tucked shirt. We also like our mom jeans to join our layering game: wear them beneath ur best summer mini dress, or an on-trend open knit lace dress, top off with a cropped denim jacket. Styling options are endless. <3
    Short answer: All shoes love to be paired with mom jeans!

    Long answer: When we feel like slipping into ankle length mom jeans like our Monki Taiki, we instantly reach for sneakers, loafers, ballerinas, or even heels. Perfect for breezy days or when we feel like showing a lil’ leg. Some days we also feel like tucking our mom jeans into our fave boots and finishing off with a short trench. Sorry not sorry, seems like the styling options are endless here as well. <3
