Here's how to wear your BAM.


 

Jeans

The denim we use is totally vintage and they’re chosen for their unique states of wear, wash, and mild distress.  Our vintage jeans have been measured and sorted by their waist and inseam measurements and translated into modern denim sizing.  Because of this, the jeans you receive may have a vintage size tag that differs from the size you order.  Each jean is unique and one-of-a-kind.  We'll handpick one for you from our limited stock.

Levis 501s/505s - This style was cut in a high-waisted silhouette in premium cotton denim with a relaxed, slightly tapered leg and they may have a zip or button fly.  This style looks great worn as a high waist fit or a lower rise fit (as described below).

Levis 517s - This style was cut in a high-waisted silhouette in premium cotton denim with a slightly flared leg opening and a zip fly.  Please note, this style looks best as a high waist fit (as described below).

Depending on how you like your vintage denim to fit there are two ways to determine your size:

For a high waist fit that is slim through the hip and hugs the bum but is relaxed in the leg, order your typical denim size.  The jeans will sit about 1 finger below your belly button.

For a lower rise fit that is loose through the hip and bum as well as baggy through the leg, order 1-2 sizes larger than your typical denim size.  The jeans will then sit about 3 fingers below your belly button.

Bliss And Mischief Denim Fit Guide

For the inseam length, we have 3 sizes: Short, Regular, and Long.  Short length is 26-28", Regular length is 29-31", and Long length is 32-34".  To determine your inseam, find a favorite pair of jeans and measure the inside leg seam from the crotch to the hem of the pant.  Keep in mind that our Levis 501s look best when they slightly cropped, hitting at the bottom of your ankle or are rolled up once or twice to hit at the bottom of your ankle. 


Shirts, Kimono's, Jackets & Jumpsuits

We’re relaxed and we like our clothing to be as well.  Bliss And Mischief’s overall fit intention is a little slouchy, a bit borrowed from the boys, and a lot cool-girl effortlessness.  With that intention, we categorize our sizes 1, 2, and 3, allowing you to choose your fit based on your individual style. 

-Size 1 is the slimmest fit, traditionally best for x-small to smalls looking for that just-enough slouchyness, or great for someone that’s usually a medium and wants their clothes to sit closer to the body. 

-Size 2 is right there in the middle – a great option for a small to get a more oversize fit, for a medium to get a relaxed fit or for a large to have a slightly slimmer option. 

-Size 3 is our most oversize and dramatic fit.  Great slouchy option for those that usually take a large or for smaller sizes that like their clothes to have a edgier oversize proportion


Made to Order Embroidered Items

All of our embroidered pieces are done made to order here in Los Angeles on authentic vintage stock. After you select your size from our available stock, and then pay for your items, we will send them out to be finished. This process takes 3-4 weeks from purchase date (Note: Embroidered items labeled as IN STOCK will ship immediately).  We hand draw our patterns, and our craftsmen use traditional western embroidery methods on hand-guided machines. Because of this hand-done process, no two pieces will be exactly the same. It's this 'one at a time, one of a kind' philosophy that makes each Bliss And Mischief piece worth collecting.  

Pieces Made with Vintage Materials

Most of the vintage items we offer are pre-loved and come with signs of a previous life - This includes the vintage fabric we use for our new one of a kind items. We hand pick items and fabric that may include wear, distress, marks, and other signs of age intentionally as we believe this adds to the character of the items.

If you're unsure about buying vintage and one of a kind items with these elements, feel free to email us before you buy with any of your questions.
