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
and dark washes (optional). Step 1. 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 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. Dark washes are the most
flattering for bigger guys. Step 3. 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 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. Boot-cut jeans are always in style. Step 5. 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.
Did you know Jeans were called "waist overalls" or just "overalls" before 1960, when Levi
Strauss changed the popular name to "jeans."
