Denim trends may come and go (and when they do we make sure to cover it), but no matter how many seasons go by and how many new styles may emerge, there are a handful of jean brands on the classic end of the spectrum that we just won't quit. You know as well as we do that jeans are the cornerstones of our closets and the building blocks of countless outfits, so it should come as no surprise that our individual denim stacks are more like towers (as in, we own a lot of jeans).
It's only natural, then, that we've come to favor a select few that we turn to time and time again. These are our failsafe pairs that have stood the test of time and many closet cleanouts and are still left standing in our wardrobes today. Since we're so devoted to the labels we think are the best jean brands out there, we're sharing them here along with the exact jean styles we love so you, too, can find The One (aka your next go-to pair). Keep scrolling to discover and shop them all.
"I'm not a big skinny-jeans wearer unless they're by Citizens of Humanity. All of its jeans have a vintage feel that's just cool, and the skinny jeans have a perfect ever-so-slight slouchy fit that's very appealing to someone like me who favors a looser fit as opposed to skintight." — Payer
