If denim’s on your wish list this year, this guide is here to help you find the right pair of jeans for your body type – with as little pain and suffering as possible.
I’ll warn you, they aren’t cheap, but they’re designer jeans. You only need one great pair, maybe two and you’re all set. They’ll last forever and get butter soft – so worth it.
Be sure to wear the shoes that you will wear most with them so that the store attendant can mark them for the tailor and send them on their way that day. I also advise that you wear a light weight comfortable shirt. You’d be surprised how hot it can get trying on jeans.
