Try them on:
When you head to buy jeans try as many as pairs you possibly can. Men generally want jeans that they can jump into at a moment’s notice. But, do remember though it takes some time the more pairs you try on, the better you’ll understand which brand or fit works for you.
Check the measurements:
Do check your leg and waist measurements before you go shopping. While measuring the length of your leg, measure it a little longer so that your jeans can cover the top of your shoes without exposing your socks at the ankle area.

Opt for a good fit:
No matter how great the jeans is, if the fit is wrong on your body it’s sure to appear dowdy and drab. Steer clear of tight fits especially towards the bottom of your leg. Tapered pants or the wide bell-bottomed look is also a passé. The best choice is a straight leg or a boot cut. Assure that the legs, crotch and the waist areas are not too tight. In addition, it’s not advisable to get just the right length because denims shrink. Let the length be a little longer so that you can fold them or make any necessary alterations later.
Stick with the basics:
It’s best not to drift too far off into the ‘trendy’ sphere. Overly embellished or dazzling styles just doesn’t work with denims. Flashier colors like red are always way off in terms of timelessness. It’s good to avoid white and black jeans as well. Stick to the basic and classic blue tones with maybe slight variations in styles and designs.
Quality and Brands:
It’s always better to have few quality pieces than a hundred things that you will just throw away. There are numerous styles and brands to choose from. If your looking for something impressive, the sky’s the limit. Brands such as Levi’s, Lee, Calvin Klein, Guess and Wrangler have numerous options to choose from. You just can’t go wrong shopping with these brands.
A tip: Denims are meant to be dirty and messy, not shining all the time. Hence, wash your denim as infrequently as possible – maybe after you use it four or five time.
