Why is it a Find? These dark wash jeans are from Joe’s Jeans eco-friendly line. The Italian cotton is blended with modal that makes them soft, and stretch that makes them comfortable. And that’s all manufactured using 60% less water and 30 % less energy. Hey, if you can look and feel good, while doing good for the environment, why not? These are a lighter weight denim so they are great for the warmer weather. The slight whiskering on the back of the knees and around the fly gives them attitude, but the dark blue shade is still refined enough for the office and an evening out.
Wear it with: As with all clean, dark wash jeans, wear these with everything, for almost everything. Desk to dinner, you’ll look appropriate in these.
Fit Tip: Joe’s Brixton fit is one of Joe’s most popular for good reason. It is modern with a straight, narrower leg and plenty of seat and thigh room for most every gent. The rise hits just below the navel.

LIGHT WASHES.
Why is it a Find? AG Jeans uses the perfect mix of sanding and light whiskering to create a pair of jeans that has the perfect fade of a 15 year old dear friend with styling that looks modern for today. So, you can enjoy all your weekend activities without being told to go home and change.
Wear it with: As with all light wash jeans, a white top is always safe and fresh looking, but pops of color and pattern like this gingham button up are equally smart-looking and give your jeans a casually dapper finish.
Fit Tip: AG’s Graduate is an easier modern fit with a straight leg and plenty of room in the seat and thigh for most gents. The rise hits just below the navel, all resulting in an updated look that is not skinny or trendy.
Alternatives: For a contemporary and slimmer fit, Joe’s Jeans has got you covered.

Why is it a Find? Light washes aren’t just about blue. This light grey wash is a refreshing alternative with the same vintage feel. These 7 For All Mankind jeans are sufficiently - but not overly – distressed, giving them that light warm weather look.
Wear it with: Faded grey jeans are just as versatile as your typical blue version, working with neutrals, pastels and dark colors. Adding this cool, laidback linen check Billy Reid button up creates a bit of an edgier, weekend look that feels so right.
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind’s Standard model is more of a relaxed, modern fit with a straight leg, plenty of seat and thigh room, and a rise just below the navel. So you get a contemporary look, with a really comfortable fit.
Alternatives: If you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit, AG Jeans Nomad model is a similar wash.

Tommy Bahama - Denim Coastal Island Standard Fit Jeans
Why is it a Find? Tommy Bahama uses a seriously soft and comfortable denim for these jeans, in a wonderful, lighter weight that is ideal for the warmer months. The finer details, like hand sanding around the pockets, gives them a great broken-in look without actually having any tears or holes so they don’t look sloppy.
Wear it with: These are your weekend go-to jeans, so all your favorite t-shirts and polos work. You can even dress them up with a light color cotton and linen v-neck sweater.
Fit Tip: This is a relaxed, gentleman’s fit with a straight leg that is a bit roomier than the other picks in this “light wash” category.

Why is it a Find? The white trend is strong this season, and Joe’s Jeans makes it easy for every gent to embrace it thanks to their Spotless fabric that actually repel spills. Yes, you can and should re-read that sentence. How they do it, while keeping the fabric utterly soft and stretchy, we’re not entirely sure. But we can tell you we’ve tested it ourselves – spills literally bead right up. So wear these jeans with confidence while you sip coffee and wine.
Wear it with: While head-to-toe white is very “of-the-moment”, everything goes with white and pairing pops of color, like this washed red chambray button up shirt or this blue and white check.
Fit Tip: This fit, the Brixton model is Joe’s Jeans most popular modern fit – updated and not too fitted, with a straight leg and rise that sits just below the navel. There is plenty of seat and thigh room, which is certainly important for white jeans.
Alternatives: Joe’s Jeans also offers these jeans in a more relaxed fit and you’ll get free shipping on their site, too.

DARK WASHES.
Why is it a Find? The super dark blue rinse of these AG jeans has no sanding or abrasions for a truly dapper, clean look. They are made of selvage denim, which is woven on an old-fashion loom, creating a truly high-quality denim that just gets better with wear.
Wear it with: Clean, dark indigo jeans are a smart look for the office (when jeans are acceptable) and certainly appropriate for most nights out, all year round. A small scale pattern shirt keeps the look dressier, and can be finished with a cardigan or pull over sweater on a cooler evening. To keep the look lighter, a simple linen button up looks great. Selvage denim is often finished with a white-trimmed seam that can be shown off by cuffing the hem, so go ahead and add a small cuff when you wear these.
Fit Tip: AG’s Matchbox model has a modern fit with a straight leg and a comfortable seat and thigh. The rise hits just below the navel – a very “everygent” fit.
Alternatives: For a trimmer, contemporary fit alternative, 7 For All Mankind's version is in their new FoolProof denim that doesn’t stretch out and can be thrown in the dryer.

Why is it a Find? This dark wash from 34 Heritage has subtle sanded highlights, so they don’t look brand spankin’ new, but still maintain a dressier look. For gents that like a truly relaxed fit, but want that updated look of dark denim, these are a true Find.
Wear it with: Dark jeans have become a wardrobe staple, especially for a night out or any office that has a more relaxed environment. So wear them with button up shirts and sport coats. With a light colored patterned cotton sweater, you have a great Spring look for the office.
Fit Tip: This is a true gentleman’s fit with an easier, straight leg. They have a higher rise and plenty of seat and thigh room.

Why is it a Find? These dark grey wash jeans are an awesome alternative to dark indigo, and just as warm weather friendly. They can create an even more polished look, especially when paired with a sport coat or cardigan sweater. But casual or dressy, these J Brands have a masculine vibe with just the right touch of edge, made of a yarn-dyed cotton for beautifully saturated color that is also super comfortable for the warmer weather.
Wear it with: Treat them like any of your dark wash jeans – wear them dressy or casual, with button downs or cotton sweaters, and sport coats when needed. They look great with all the interesting muted colors of the season, and are a crisp contrast to simple white shirts like this linen one. Your favorite black shoes or simple white sneakers finish the look with ease.
