The ultimate wardrobe staple, the first step in planning your outfit, the timeless wonder. However you look at them, jeans aren’t going anywhere. Since you don’t have to worry about them going out of style after one season, it’s a good idea to invest in a quality pair. To point you in the right direction, here’s our round-up of a few pairs of quality men’s jeans that will last for years to come.
With careful attention paid to the details in these jeans, Tellason has crafted a classic from raw selvage denim. The bottom of the back pockets have been lined for added durability, so they won’t wear out quickly from keeping your keys or wallet in them. A nice fade over time and comfortable cut mean these jeans will be on high rotation for a while.
Prized for their amazing fit and raw denim construction, A.P.C. Petit New Standard jeans are a modern, stylish option. Made from 100% Japanese Selvedge Denim, these jeans will fade and age to perfection with continuous wear. They also feature a button fly and unique engraved button detail with a regular, mid-rise.
Attesting to the timeless nature of jeans is the Levi’s 501, whose origin traces back to the late 19th century. Though times have most certainly changed since then, the high-quality nature of Levi’s denim has not. The Kobori 501 Slim Fit Denim Jeans offer a more modern approach to the classic style, and come tapered with pre-tailored cuffs and a mid-rise waist.
A brand to love not only for their quality products but also their ethical approach to creating and recycling them. Nudie Jeans Co. make their jeans from 100% organic cotton denim. By offering free repairs on their products, reselling second-hand garments and recycling worn out products, they significantly reduce wastage which is, of course, great for the environment. This incarnation of the Lean Dean fit comes in a classic Dry Japan Selvage with orange stitching. The brand suggests giving them about six months to break in for the ultimate comfort and look.
An Australian brand with world-class quality, Neuw know how to make a good pair of jeans. Iggy, inspired by the music legend Iggy Pop, is a skinny, tapered jean made from high-quality European stretch denim. Built for comfort and durability, they’ll serve you well with daily use.
A contemporary cut with ample fit options, Acne Studios Max Stay Cash jeans are a modern classic. Crafted from solid black denim, these jeans have been treated in order to minimise fading. While many denim enthusiasts enjoy the fading process, these are a great option if you want your black jeans to remain as black as when they were purchased. Built to last season beyond season, these jeans are easily dressed up or down for year-round wear.
With a slim fit and a bit of stretch, Dr Denim Clark jeans are ideal for casual wear. The brand’s history of over 30 years in tailoring taught them a thing or two about what makes a good garment, and they’ve got their formula down pat. Made from premium cotton and well-tested construction, these are a quality pair that will last for years to come.
