Denim Buyers Guide

Denim jeans have been the casual staple item of clothing for years. From rockers to skaters, hipsters to hippies the classic denim jean is the ultimate symbol of both comfort and rebellion.

A good pair of jeans is an essential part of your wardrobe, but the array of choice can be mind-blowing. To help you pick your ultimate fit to suit your lifestyle, we’ve compiled a handy Denim Buyers Guide.

What’s My Size?

To kick things off you'll need to measure yourself in order to get the correct size jeans. This is done in two simple steps below:

Waist - Standing with your feet slightly apart, wrap a tape measure around the slimmest part of your waist.

Inside Leg - Stand up straight and drop a tape measure from your crotch to the hem of your jeans.
