If there’s one site we became more obsessed with than our own blog this year, it’s Jean Stories. The highly editorial, gorgeously curated collection of denim-lovers and their favorite baby blues never gets old (and trust us, we see a lot of jeans). Careen through 2014′s prevalence of gorgeous vintage-inspired worn-in jeans, boyfriend cuts, daring cut-offs and more with Jean Stories’ full year wrap-up. Look for style stars like Jenna Lyons, and shop all of your favorites right from the post.
If you were to break down what denim must-haves to acquire for your closet, where would you start? We went by our favorite denim staples for any man, for every occasion this spring, and pulled out several solid pieces that can be worn and loved for many seasons: (1) the denim jacket, (2) the denim shirt, and the various cuts of jeans that are fashion director approved: (3) the slim fit jean, (4) the straight leg and (5) a men’s skinny jean. The next question is, can you choose just one?
4. THE STRAIGHT LEG JEAN
