I started wearing Frankie B. when I was in seventh grade...2001. I live in LA, so they had them at cool boutiques. They had a black lable w/ white 'frankie b.' text and they looked felt hand-made. Nothing like the new ones they've been producing the last few years. My favorite ones were:
The dark blue denim low-wire w/ leather lace up front.
The low rise w/ a 3 button fly (actual buttons, not snaps)
the patchwork ones...
Also, I had very cool velour SUUUPER LOW super huge bellbottoms...
I'm DYING to get a vintage pair, especially the front lace up ones.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? The denim quality was just very different, thicker and sturdier..very low and stretchy.
I cant seem to find any on E-bay, please lmk if anyone has any they'd like to sell or any tips on where to find them.
I also just bought a pair I found at a thrift shop bc that are very cute (vintage) but not my size, so if anyone wants them LMK.
