Baggy. Skintight. So low on the hips, it's illegal. Get the right kinda of jeans ppl... here are some tips on how to go about it.. men aso lar....

  • Denim IntelligenceIf you choose jeans well and treat them right, they'll look better and last longer. Here's a few smart rules.

  • Go slowly when you shop. Quality time in the fitting room—45 minutes to an hour—pays off. Pick a store with lots of inventory.

  • Sit or squat while you're trying on jeans to make sure not too much butt is showing (and to gauge comfort level).

  • Be flexible about size. When in doubt, take more than one size into the dressing room.

  • Buy two pairs when you find great jeans—one to hem for heels, the other to hem for flats.

  • Tone down to a dark blue wash; it's most slimming.

  • Think wardrobe, rather than one grubby pair you wear to death (that's so college). Three to five jeans are the minimum: one or two for work or going out (dark, straight-legged denim looks most polished), one or two for weekends (with sneakers or flats), and one with extra give or stretch for "fat" days.

  • See a tailor if jeans aren't precisely right (but never buy them too small.

  • Prevent fade-out by washing dark jeans inside out in cold water

  • Shop online if there are no local stores you like—it can be tricky, but good websites help.
