We found this guide at National Jean Company’s website and thought it was a great fit guide to share with our readers. From time to time we’ll feature different brands to help you decide what style best suites you!
7 for All Mankind by denim guru Jerome Dahan, are known for their buttery soft stretch, comfortably snug fit and celebrity following. The magic of 7 for All Mankind is the way they maximize the shape of the wearer.
The A Pocket has a low rise and fits the shape of the leg: narrow at the knee, flare bottom. The waistband is contoured, lower in the front than in the back. This protects against a peek-a-boo in the back and makes the jean look generally lower in the front. This stretch denim is very forgiving on athletic legs, and rounder bottoms.
The Bootcut has a low rise, sits low on the hips and has a snug fit through the leg, loosens just above the knee. This is the signature jean by Seven.
The Dojo is the lowest fitting jean from 7 for All Mankind. The fit is tight through the leg, until it breaks into wider trouser leg. The bottom has a wide hem for a very sharp and sophisticated look.
The Ginger Wide Leg is a lightweight denim style with the spirit and style of the 1970’s. The contoured waistband has a front rise of 9”, 13.5” in the back. A single crease runs down the front and back of the legs giving the legs a long and lean look.
The High Waisted Trouser is a sophisticated and fashion forward style. They fit slim through the hips and fit wide through the thighs and leg. This is our highest rise at 13.75” and higher in the back at 16.25”. The slant front pockets add to the trouser style and the besom back pockets give a clean and smooth appearance. This only embellishement is a crease down the front and back of the leg.
The Kate Straight Leg is a slim fitting jean with a slightly stretchy feel. The denim pant has five pocket styling and straight leg. The waistband is contoured for a flattering fit on the waist and hips, a lower rise in the front at 7.5” and higher in the back at 12.25”.
The Lucy Skinny Pant combines the aesthetic of a jean, rivets, pockets, button, zipper fly with the feel of a legging. Runs true to size. The thick knit fabric keeps you in and warm. Fantastic with boots.
The Roxanne is the essential silhouette for a sophisticated denim look. Roxanne has a tapered, slimmed-down leg, intended to scrunch at the ankle over a killer pair of heels. The back of the jean has a yoke that rounds and lifts the bottom. The contoured waistband flatters the waist and hips, giving coverage in the back at 13.5” and lower rise in the front at 7.5”.The soft denim weave will tend to stretch a size with wash and wear. If you are between sizes, try down a size the jeans will stretch to your shape.
We haven’t had a Deal of the Day for awhile but we just spotted these at Saks Fifth Avenue and had to pass on the tip to our readers! True Religion Bobby Flared Jeans on sale for just $77.90 - that’s about as low as we’ve seen lately online! Scoop up a pair today!
Is it just us, or did Affliction miss the mark on their denim line? We LOVE buying Affliction T-shirts for our guy, but somehow their denim line is a little too ghetto-fabulous for us. Thoughts? If you do actually like them, they are available at eModa.
We prefer our guys in a pair of Seven’s or True Religion’s, the pic below makes us drool a little. Nothing makes a guy hotter than some artistic tattoos and designer denim. Yummy!

Earnest Sewn Making Waves in the World of Denim
Arguably the best American denim line produced today, Earnest Sewn was launched by Scott Morrison (former co-founder and designer of Paper, Denim & Cloth), who today serves as the Founder, Creative Director and Head Designer. Morrison founded Earnest Sewn in response to the assembly line production dominating the denim market at that time. Morrison and his team revolutionized the world of denim by adopting the philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, the Japanese design principle that translates as the ‘product sewn in earnest.’ Adherence to the Wabi-Sabi philosophy ensures that every pair of Earnest Sewn jeans is a unique—a priceless commodity and a “limited edition”. In fact Morrison literally signs off on each and every jean produced by Earnest Sewn (but you might need to search for it).
In fact we heard that fashionistas are scouring the globe for Earnest Sewn. It’s no wonder that these are the “go to jean” for Heidi Klum, Courtney Cox, Mischa Barton and, now through Gilt Groupe, YOU!
