GUYS GUIDE: How To Find The Perfect Pair Of Jeans

In a world of limitless possibilities, where shopping offers a dizzying selection of choice - and even more so online - finding a pair of jeans that capture your personal style, fit you perfectly, and feel as good as they look is harder than ever. That is, of course, until now.

Here at Flag & Anthem we make premium jeans, and our approach is easy: we take high-quality denim fabric and combine it with a hint of stretch so that every pair is as comfortable as it is durable. We offer five impeccable fits (straight, slim, relaxed, bootcut, and athletic), three inseam lengths, and dozens of different washes for maximum versatility.

This denim guide is here to help you refine your style and figure out which jeans are right for you.

FIT HAPPENS: Choose a Style that Works Best For You

When finding the perfect pair of jeans, the first question to ask yourself is what style can you see yourself wearing. Of course, this will depend on the overall look that you are going for. Our jeans are available in five perfect fits and are designed to fit you better than anything else around.


  • Fitted through the seat and thigh
  • Straight through the leg
  • 16" leg opening
Straight jeans offer a streamlined fit that is easy to wear with anything - paired with sneakers and a tee or with an untucked button-down shirt and boots.  If you want a style that has stood the test of time and can fit in almost anywhere, this is it.



  • Fitted through the hip and thigh
  • Tapered below the knee
  • 15" leg opening
Slim jeans offer a tailored fit that's comfortable without feeling too tight and will help give you a more fashion-forward look. They're best for guys who want their jeans to rest on top of their shoes and pair well other on-trend items like white sneakers, sweaters, or untucked performance shirts.


  • Looser through the hip and thigh
  • Straight through the leg
  • 17" leg opening
Relaxed jeans offer a looser fit, with plenty of space in the thigh, seat, and below the knee. They are extremely comfortable and pair well with other casual, relaxed clothing like flannel shirts, hoodies, and henleys.


  • Straight through the seat and thigh
  • Slight flare at the knee
  • 18-1/4" leg opening
Like straight jeans, bootcut jeans have a bit more room in the thigh, but become wider at the knee. As their name suggests, bootcut jeans were designed to fit over boots. Since they have a more laid-back vibe, they look best with flannels or tees.


  • Roomiest fit through the seat and thigh
  • Tapered below the knee
  • 15" leg opening
Athletic jeans are perfect for the guy who needs a little extra room in the thigh. Like slim jeans, they offer a tailored fit that's comfortable without feeling too tight and offer a traditional look that you can dress up with performance shirts or dress down with sneakers and a graphic tee. 


WE'VE GOT OPTIONS: How To Choose The Perfect Denim Wash

Now that you've found your perfect fit, it's time to choose a wash. There are a lot of options, but don't get blue - we'll walk you through the differences of each so you can find the one that is best for you.

Light Wash

Inherently more casual than their darker counterparts, light wash denim offers an effortless approach to everyday dressing and all-day relaxation.

Medium Wash

A favorable shade of blue to have in your rotation, medium wash denim has undergone a longer washing process - meaning they're super soft to the touch and extremely comfortable.

Dark Wash

Dark wash denim is a closet staple because of its versatility, durability, and timeless good looks. Easy to dress up or down, it looks good with any outfit.

Tinted Wash

Tinted wash denim stands no competition when it comes to out-living any passing trend. With workable durability and effortless versatility, you can mix and match this wash with anything.
