We may earn commission from the links on this page, but we still only recommend products we love. Yes, really.














It’s time to raise those old baggy jeans to the rafters and retire them once and for all!  There are a ton of denim options out there for guys and, to be honest, it’s hard to know exactly where to begin.  One thing is for sure, you need your jeans to fit your body-type correctly.  Skinny jeans aren’t for everyone (and hopefully they won’t be for anyone soon enough).  Regular-fit jeans sometimes can leave you looking boxy and like your dad (not that there’s anything wrong with that).  Sometimes the slim-to-straight jeans give you the best of both worlds. Click here to jump to our explainer on just exactly what slim fit even means!?

We’ve rounded up some of the best-fitting denim jean options in the latest on-trend colors and styles.  From dark selvedge to slightly torn ‘rock-star’ options, shop our picks for the best jeans for men in 2021.

Starting With Lighter

The Best Selling Jeans Choice

1.  Madewell Danforth Wash Jeans – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

If you’re looking for a great fitting lighter denim option to rock with your favorite broken-in t-shirt and sneakers this is your best bet.  They’re super comfortable and fit really well (read: not too tight and not too loose).  Perfect for when you want to lighten up your overall look as the weather (finally) gets nicer.  Learn more here!


The Casual Choice

2.  Athletic Slim Everyday Flex – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

These are personally our favorite pick of the season.  We don’t love ones that are too light in color/wash so they fit the bill as they’re a bit darker, but not too dark that you feel like you should be wearing these in the fall or winter.  Now these are still considered slim, but they’re an athletic slim so they provide a bit more room in areas that can sometimes be too tight like the seat and thigh area.  Learn more here!


The Levi’s Choice

3.  Levi’s 511 Slim Fit Stretch – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

These are some of the most popular jeans of the year (year-after-year) from the tried-and-true Levi’s brand.  They give you that slim look, but with some stretch in it so you can actually breathe and move around in them.  They’re actually 99% cotton with 1% elastane that help give it that stretchy movement we all need!  These Levi’s come in a ton of different color options too and they really are perfectly priced right now. Learn more here!

A recent buyer said,

These jeans fit me like a glove!”


The Classic Seasonal Choice

4.  The J. Crew Classic Flex-Jeans – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

You could wear these, literally, every day and they’d feel like you were wearing your favorite pair of lounge pants.  Ok, not exactly, but they are so comfortable.  They fit great (almost perfectly, to be honest) and are our go-to each and every weekend no matter what time of year it is.

A recent buyer said,

These jeans are my new favorite!  I got them in two shades of denim. So comfortable they also have a little flex to them so after a big meal, you don’t have to worry!”


The Ripped Choice

5.  Topman Ripped in Grey – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

Yes, every now and then you want to sport that ripped look.  Maybe you’re trying to relive your youth or keep your style totally on trend.  We love these because they’re grey in color, are totally affordable, and look like they’ve already been lived-in which means they’re pretty comfy already too.  Learn more here!


The Best Fitting Choice

6.  The Everlane Performance – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size (Multi Fits Available)

One of our go-to’s when it comes to the latest (and amazingly priced) denim is always Everlane.  They fit great, come in a bunch of different fits based on your body type, and there are usually different washes/colors tochoose from too.  Our favorite part is that you won’t see everyone wearing these so you’ll feel unique! The one pictured above is “indigo fade” and even comes in odd sizes like the famous 31×32 which we can typically never find anywhereLearn more here!

A recent buyer said,

Fit me true to size so it was super easy to just choose my style in the right size. Super comfortable, slight stretch, and have the feel of a more durable brand without being rough!”


Getting Darker

The Pop of Color Choice

7.  Paige Transcend Federal Slim Straight Leg – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

If you’re looking to add a slight color to your denim, check these out.  These are slim-to-straight leg, meaning they’ll fit you pretty well without looking too slim or too baggy.  The color pictured above is called “Vintage Carbon Grey” but it almost looks a bit more blue to us.  Learn more here!

A recent buyer said,

The fabric and feel is perfect. These are styled just right so that there is a slight taper towards the angle for a tailored look!”


The Popular Choice

8.  AG Slim Fit in Dark ‘Alpha’ Denim – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

These are one of the best sellers, again, this season.  You really can’t go wrong with AG.  They’re a slim fit but, don’t worry, they’re not that tight-fitting look you’ve been afraid of.  Plus, the dark denim is perfect to wear to work (when you’re allowed) and out for drinks after work.  Learn more here!

A recent buyer said,

This is my second pair of these jeans and I absolutely love them!”


The Day or Night Choice

9.  AG Graduate Slim Straight Leg – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

This pick has more of a casual, yet clean and tailored look.  Sure you can wear these to the office on Friday, but save them for your weekend plans where you can pair them with a blazer or sweater in the cooler months. Learn more here!

My husband loves these jeans! Finally a narrow leg but not skinny! He says the fabric is really soft too!”


The Trendy Choice

10.  Everlane ‘The Slim Fit’ Indigo Denim – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Fit:  True to Size

We’re obsessed with all things Everlane these days.  Not only will you get a great quality product, but it’s not going to break the bank.  And, yes, we’re high-fiving that you can score a pair for way less than $100, which is almost unheard of these days.  These fit really well (they have a bunch of different cuts depending on what you’re into) and there’s always a little bit of a stretchy give to them, which is great for us when we’re skipping the gym for a few months days. Learn more here!

A recent buyer said,

Fit is great, slim but not skinny and the stretch makes the jeans so comfortable. Highly recommend!”


The Black Denim Choice

11.  Everlane Black Denim Slim Fit – Buy It Here

Buy Now

Black jeans are where it’s at this season, especially as we gear up for the cooler days and nights.  Another great pick from Everlane, these fit great, come in a bunch of different cuts based on your preference, and actually come in a bunch of different colors too in case you’re not ready to for the retro black denim look. Learn more here!

A recent buyer said,

These jeans sit below the waist and are slim and roomy through the thigh and tapered through the leg which makes the perfect. They are also extremely comfortable.”

So What’s the Deal With Slim Fit Jeans?

It’s a question we get asked a lot.  Guys usually get nervous when trying to buy a pair of jeans that are labeled “Slim Fit” because they think they’re going to be way too tight.  Relax (pun sort of intended), your favorite denim brands have come a long way since that horrific skinny fit phase and, well, even worse the super-skinny fit phase.

If you’re going the slim route, fear not, because all it typically means is that your jeans will be slightly more fitted around your butt (which isn’t the worse thing if you’re trying to steal a look or two) and your thigh area. Yes, guys have thighs.  It then begins to taper around your knee and leg leaving a slightly narrower opening.  Basically, this is the kind of fit when you’re in semi-decent shape and don’t want to look like you’re rocking the baggy look circa 2001 (you remember the time).  While each brand will have variations based on their version of slim fit, you usually can’t go wrong.

Now, we don’t want to blow your mind, but there’s also ‘Slim Straight Fit.’  You still with us?  Good.  This fit is usually tapered around the knee and narrower on the leg, but leaves a bit more room around the butt and thigh giving you a little more wiggle room than a classic slim fit.  When most guys are looking for a better fit and are a little nervous, they’ll usually start with the slim straight fit and then eventually graduate to just ‘slim fit.’  We say roll the dice, take some risks, and finally get a pair of jeans that fit perfectly for you.
