Want to look and feel your best? It’s in your jeans.

There’s nothing quite as classic as your favorite pair of jeans, and if you play your cards right, you can find a pair or two that are appropriate for everything from a first date to a business-casual office. All it takes is finding the right wash that works for you and your wardrobe.

We’ve curated a selection of our favorite denim washes and styles, so you don’t have to scour the internet. Bonus: all of these selections are authentic denim—that is, made with at least 90% cotton, for that perfect fit and feel, with maybe some stretch added for that extra splash of comfort.
