Here's a glimpse at Bongo in the early 2000s era when Fergie was shilling for them. But this denim brand was also super popular in the late '80s and early '90s when Liv Tyler was the face.

4. Marithé + François Girbaud

Founded in France in 1964, the label rose to popularity in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s when it was the preferred denim brand among rappers like the Notorious B.I.G. and De La Soul.

7. B.U.M. Equipment

People still wear these, I guess. In the late '90s and early 2000s, they were favored by girls seeking a bit of Cali flair. (Read: Obsessed with The O.C.)

This upscale denim line came around in 1999 and the designs were actually pretty great and simple (despite the bootcut fit). They apparently made a comeback in 2013.
