    4. J.Crew's Curvy Toothpick Jeans will fit comfortably, no matter the day of the week.

    Promising review: "I have a slightly curvy more athletic build on my bottom half with some thigh action and wider hips. I'm usually disappointed in the fit of most jeans (too tight in thighs, fine everywhere else) but these are a game changer! I have no idea what the designers have done but these fit like a glove and give me the shape I've always wanted in denim. They are not kidding when they say they'll hold you in and lift you up! They are also so comfy and have not stretched out at all!" β€”dagnyc

    5. Unbranded Brand's Raw Selvedge Jeans have a tapered fit that you can wear over and over.

    Promising review: "My new favorite pair of jeans! They are stiff initially so you do have to work for the comfort but it's well worth it. It will conform to your anatomy for a one-of-a-kind fit. A lot of reviews say to go down a size but as a 34 waist I found the 34 to be perfect. Selvedge at this price is a steal. I will be buying a few more." β€”Brenth

    Promising Review: "These jeans fit very well. I have wide hips and thick/athletic thighs, and I have been consistently happy with Everlane's denim. The jeans have a little give, but they do not stretch out. The regular length is the actual perfect length jean. I also have the ankle length, and I like those as well." β€”aclair

    15. AE Ne(X)t Level Men's Skinny Jeans are durable and will stretch right where you want them to.

    Promising review: "I've been wearing mostly AE jeans for about 10 years and the quality is definitely better than ever. These skinny jeans look and fit great and are so comfortable. I'm a stockier guy, and the last pair of skinny stretch jeans I bought from AE (probably 2015) had a LOT of extra space in the crotch area and it didn't look good and made my thighs rub together on the inside. But these ones fit significantly better and give me no issues. These stay up no matter what and stay skinny and comfortable. I'm really glad to see AE's quality return." β€”Mike
