Take a look at these jeans. Simple, classic lines. Notice they aren't super low waist - this is the best jeans rise you will find. Regular zip fly always looks better than button-fly. The color is perfect; stonewashed, not too dark, not too light. These are straight legged from the thigh, all the way down to the hem. The bootleg cut is the best style available for men and you should make an effort to find a pair of them, no matter what brand you use.
These are very traditional, masculine looking jeans. This is one of the few pair I've seen that would look ok without a belt - so if you hate that kind of thing, these are probably a good choice for you. Notice the fit is straight legged, but they're a tad bit long, giving rise to a few ripples in the fabric down toward the bottom. It actually looks ok here, so if you wind up with a pair that look slightly too long, don't worry too much. Check out the way the hem reaches the floor.
"loose fit" jeans are NOT baggy. You don't want baggy, baggy is for teenagers. If, however, you're the kind of guy who prefers a bit of room in the thigh or knee, these will do it for you.
Like I said, bootcut is the best style out there for y'all. These are a fantastic color, and they have a nice, natural-looking fade down the thigh. This is really the only kind of fade you should be getting - anything else looks very prima-donnaish. It also looks extremely Eurotrashy. Again, take a look at how the hem reaches the floor. They jeans look like they've been made for the boots, right? Yeah, that's how they got their cute little name - but they'll also look good with all the rest of your shoes, so don't pass them over just coz you don't own a pair of boots.
