How to Buy the Best Men's Jeans for Your Body

Know which jeans suit you so you can look your best and, best of all, shorten your shopping time.

You will need

  • Straight-cut jeans
  • Skinny jeans
  • Wide-leg jeans
  • Back pockets with flaps
  • Boot-cut or flare cut jeans
  • Low-rise jeans
  • Dark washes (optional)

Step 1 Get straight cut Get classic straight cut jeans, which sit at your natural waist and feature a straight leg, if you’re tall and slim. You can also get away with skinny jeans, that have a tight-fitting, slim cut leg all the way to the ankle.

Step 2 Opt for wide leg Opt for wide leg jeans, which sit at your natural waist and have a relaxed, loose fit through the seat and thighs, to show off an athletic, muscular build. These also work if you’re heavier, have love-handles, or a larger waistline.

Step 3 Avoid slim cuts Avoid slim-cut jeans if you’re slim and average or below-average height, which might make you look too lean. You’ll just get lost in wide leg jeans, so stick to straight-cut or slightly flared jeans. Try back pockets with flaps to maximize a flat butt.

Step 4 Go for bootleg or flare Go for boot-cut jeans, which work on most men. Designed to accommodate cowboy boots, these pants are relaxed through the leg and gently widen from the knee to the ankle.

Step 5 Try low-rise Try low-rise jeans, which sit below the waistline on the hip bones, if you’re slender. They come in slim fit, boot-cut, wide leg, or straight cut, to flatter a range of figures. Just make sure you wear a longer shirt to avoid an accidental midriff-baring moment — which no one wants.
