7 Charts To Help Guys Find The Perfect Pair Of Jeans

Believe it or not, there are right and wrong ways to wear 'em.

1. In order to find the correct waist size, you first need to figure out where your jeans should sit (hint: on the hips).

2. The inseam of your jeans should be long enough to create at least a half "break." (A break measures the amount of crease where the bottom of the pant hits your shoe.)

3. If you're cuffing, a one- to two-inch cuff is ideal.

4. Some prefer a "stacked" look, which works best with slimmer fits when paired with high-top sneakers or boots.

5. The worn-in look of some denim is achieved through different types of treatments. Here are a few helpful terms to know:

6. Darker jeans are typically more appropriate for dressier occasions, while lighter washes should only be worn during more casual events.

7. And pay attention to the fabric: If you want a bit more stretch, opt for a pair with slightly more spandex or elastane.

Now that you've got the denim basics down, head over to Buffalo Jeans to find your perfect pair.
