Today, Cheap Monday has developed into a fashion brand with full-scale, affordable denim collections under its own label, proudly marketed as  "cheap fashionable". Shop this brand for second-skin super skinny jeans, straight leg and "borrowed fit" relaxed denim (aka boyfriend jean) styles.You'll also find a full, trendy line of "dungarees" (that's Swedish for overalls).
