Mott and Bow has, after all, been making some of the best men’s jeans for years now, and they’ve perfected the right blend of quality and value. That’s probably an understatement, but it does shine through indeed with the Mott and Bow Broome Jeans. It all starts with the fabric, a 12.8oz. stretch denim that gets a boost through 360-degree, four-way stretch technology. That sort of stretch is going to make these jeans buoyant, not heavy, and it’s going to allow you to get around on the go in style. For guys who love wearing jeans even through the hot summer months, every bit of comfort is essential. Of course, it also helps that Mott and Bow makes stylish men’s T-shirts in ultra-lightweight fabrics, because a T-shirt and jeans on a hot summer day is about as all-American as it gets.

It also all comes down to the fit and feel of these jeans. The Mott and Bow Broome Jeans are available in three crisp and cool Mott and Bow fits, including Slim, Straight and Skinny. I prefer the Slim fit myself, but the great thing is, Mott and Bow offers free shipping and returns, as you very well know if you’ve shopped the brand in the past. Select the wash, fit and size, and then be prepared to be mighty pleased with the results. The Medium Wash finish is also ideal for summer, when light wash denim is naturally easier to wear and all the more stylish on hot summer days.

Naturally, that light wash also lends itself quite readily to plenty of easy and breezy summer style staples, be it a lightweight short-sleeve shirt or one of Mott and Bow’s men’s T-shirts. Either should prove soft, versatile and casual. The list goes on as you consider picking up a pair of the best men’s jeans, because you can also wear these with an unlined cotton blazer and a crisp Oxford shirt for business casual days at the office or even a night on the town, Old Fashioned in hand. The best men’s jeans for summer are yours for the taking, so don’t waste any more time shopping ’em.

Aside from plenty of sleek. casual summer style, Nudie men’s jeans are also made from organic cotton that’s Fair Trade certified. The brand looks to cut down water usage and harmful chemicals, and they work with factories that pay workers a fair wage. All of this is much more important than you think when it comes to producing the best denim for men, and that, of course, results in a slightly higher price tag. The Nudie Jeans Lean Dean Denim, for instance, will run you $185, but that makes them a pair of men’s jeans worth investing in.

The 13oz. stretch comfort denim makes these stylish light wash jeans mobile and versatile, as easy to wear with a navy merino polo and white leather sneakers as they are with your favorite summer boots, a chambray shirt and a rugged chore coat when temperatures cool off. The slim and tapered cut (note that Nudie Jeans also offers Straight Leg and Loose Fit styles) is clean and polished, and if you pair ’em the right way (say, with your favorite Oxford shirt), these are even jeans you could wear to a casual office.

The contrasting orange thread used throughout this pair of Nudie Jeans Lean Dean Denim is a nice styling touch, as is the copper trim detailing (as shown above). At the end of the day (or rather, the start of your day), you want a pair of men’s light wash jeans you can throw on and wear in comfort for hours on end. The Nudie Jeans Lean Dean Denim are precisely that pair, so shop accordingly.

Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans

Filson’s new jeans are the sort of jeans you’ll have for years and years to come.

Just when you thought the Pacific Northwest heritage outfitters at Filson couldn’t possibly do an even better job at crafting men’s style staples, they launch the Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans. That’s right, folks: Filson is now making denim, and the results look very promising indeed. To be more specific: The Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans in Rinse Indigo are everything you could ask for in a pair of the best men’s jeans, to say the very least. In fact, whether you go with the cool and more laidback Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans in Washed Indigo or the rough-and-tumble Rinse Indigo variety, you’re getting that same classic, iconic construction that you’d expect from the revered, century-plus-old brand. And if you thought that men’s denim would best be left to brands that specialize in, well, denim, know that the Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans merge USA-made craftsmanship and high-quality fabrics in a way that only the Seattle company can pull off.

Take your pick from variations like Rinse Indigo, and be amazed at how you much you’ll love ’em.

The Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans check all the right boxes as far as great denim is concerned. They retail for a pretty agreeable price compared to designer denim ($165 at Filson), and 14.5oz. cotton denim (in the case of the Indigo variety) should prove hard-wearing and yet not overly heavy. They’re a perfect pair of jeans to start breaking in this winter, too. The straight-leg fit means you can easily wear ’em for work or play, and that’s just the Filson way. The Filson leather rear patch is a distinctive detail that only adds to their appeal. Of course, these are classic men’s jeans to pair with everything from a Filson flannel shirt to a rugged henley and the Filson Mackinaw Wool Cruiser Jacket, for example. But any way you want to wear them, the Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans can pass muster (to say the least).

Style Pick of the Week: Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage

The toughest pair of jeans in your closet? Very nearly.

If there’s one thing I know to be true,it’s that you can always count on our Style Pick of the Week series to set you up with durable, classic gear fit for any occasion — at least, that’s the goal. And in a menswear universe where, it seems, trendiness is the enemy of good taste, it pays to find men’s style essentials that you love, and then wear the crap out of ’em. That’s particularly true if you can manage to find a stylish pair of men’s denim — and that’s where the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage enter the equation. Now that we’ve truly hit the winter months for most of us, staying warm — and doing so with style and durability in mind — is a tall order. So, bear with me. Swapping out your slim faded denim for a hard-wearing pair of jeans like the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage only pays dividends in the long run; trust me on that. Made from remarkably durable selvage duck canvas — a tightly woven plainweave fabric — the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage Jeans are beastly and tough as heck. More like a pair of chore pants than your favorite pair of denim, yet with the same reliable fit and feel.

Classic details like a nicely crafted leather patch help set these jeans apart.

And the fit is really what makes the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage a wise purchase — we’re talking lean and tailored, yet with room to move. That means these jeans (made in Canada, by the way) are going to sit reliably atop everything from rugged leather lace-up boots to classic chukka boots without missing a beat. That tailored fit also means you can wear the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage to the office with a navy cotton blazer and a blue chambray shirt — yet, these aren’t a pair of stretch denim that can’t withstand a little winter weather. I’m not saying you should wear the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage out on a taxing day hike, but if you want to wear these classic jeans to the office, and then to happy hour? They’ll do just fine. They represent an easy way to switch up both your business casual and off-duty ensembles — I think they’d look best with a timeless crewneck sweater and moc toe boots for a weekend coffee date. But, it’s ultimately up to you.  Yessir, the Naked & Famous Slim Fit Duck Canvas Selvage aren’t trendy in the slightest — and that’s a great thing.

See Now, Buy Now: Levi’s 501 Jeans Are The Classic Jeans You Need Now

You can’t argue with these classic jeans, especially in a timeless, versatile dark wash.

There are menswear staples that are instantly recognizable and easily wearable — take it from a brand that modernized the blue jean as we know it today, Levi’s. And the pair of jeans that remain a cultural icon after decades? That’d be the Levi’s 501, a perfect pair of classic men’s denim that you can buy right now, and then wear for … heck, forever. In any season, in any weather … these are THE jeans (arguably). That is to say, in the way of men’s style essentials that can work in August, September or any other month of the year, there really aren’t many — the chambray shirt and suede chukka boots come to mind, as does a pair of stylish men’s denim like the Levi’s 501, naturally.

It can certainly be tricky to get all the details right, but that’s what the Levi’s 501 have continually brought to the table. Among those details? The iconic button fly, a timeless fit and the Dark Stonewash finish that you’ll grow to love. Looking for some well-fitting men’s denim that can rack up some miles? Bingo.

Just one of the many details that make the Levi’s 501 worth buying.

On that note, let’s talk about the fit and versatility of the Levi’s 501, shall we? Unlike some pairs of stretch denim that tend to fit more like denim leggings (yikes!), the 501 from Levi’s are cut in a straight fit, with a regular leg opening. That means the Levi’s 501 are at their best when worn with equally classic footwear — think durable high-top Converse sneakers or rugged Red Wing Heritage leather boots. That timeless design also makes ’em an easy pair of denim to wear in different seasons. The Levi’s 501 are as at home with a heather grey pocket tee and those aforementioned high-tops as they are with a grey crewneck sweater and yes, Red Wing Heritage leather boots come fall and winter. Did we mention the part about the classic fit? The rich Dark Stonewash finish? And the excellent price (just $59.50 via the Levi’s site)? Ahh, OK. Got it. Happy shopping!
