Finding jeans that fit just right is tricky business. So we got the skinny (sorry) on how to find the perfect pair from denim experts at Lee…

Finding the perfect fit is directly linked to your build.

"For an athletic built guy, the typical skinny or slim fit can throw the proportions of your body way out . They're usually too tight on the thigh or calf. You're better suited to a tapered fit."

If you're slim build, you want jeans that are narrow across the thigh.

"Our slim, tapered style fit suits a slimmer built guy as it's cut narrow across the thigh and tapers into the ankle."

Don't be the guy that tries to wear jeans that are too slim for him.

"It throws your proportions out. Our Arvin/regular tapered fit caters for that bigger build by offering more room in the thigh before tapering sharply into the ankle."

No matter what your build, there'll be a shape that suits you.

"The suits-all-build fit is slim straight. Look for a slim cut throughout the leg. Slim enough to look current, but with enough room to let everything hang."

There's one particular cut you should know about for Aw15.

"The tapered, like our Luke and Arvin fits, gives a modern, slick silhouette but with a bit of room in the thigh."

The perfect fit of jean is also about getting the sizing right.

"As a general rule of thumb, you should be able to fasten your belt without the waistband cinching."

When it comes to length, there are a few key things to think about.

"Don't stand for the length being alright, make sure it’s spot on. If you prefer a turn-up on the cuff, don’t buy the jeans too long. This will create the opposite of the desired effect."

The colour you choose is essential.

"Pick a clean black or dark indigo finish for a smarter, dressed-up look, or opt for naturally worn-out finishes for a casual one."
