Why is it a Sale Find? Even if you have some great jeans, you will regret passing up this pair from AG Jeans. With just the right amount of sanding and fading, these have that perfectly broken-in look for the weekend and every casual need. The silhouette is modern but not skinny, so they have a more updated look than some of the older ones already in your closet – but don’t worry gents, these are not trendy looking.
Wear it with: We don’t need to tell you – these jeans go with everything. From button ups to hoodies, you’ll reach for them over and over.
Fit Tip: The Matchbox slim fit is modern with a straight leg and enough room in the seat and thigh for most every gent. And they have a mid-rise that sits just below the navel. AG uses a 2% stretch in the fabric that adds to the comfort and helps them keep their shape throughout the day and evening, without being at all clingy.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier but still modern fit, AG’s Protégé are the jeans for you.

Fit Tip: These are cut in AG’s Graduate fit, which is modern and has a straighter leg that isn’t too slim. They have a mid-rise and plenty of room in the seat and thigh, while still creating an updated look. The 2% stretch adds comfort and shape retention without making them fitted.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fit, you can still get the look with these 34 Heritage jeans.
