The Boyfriend Jean
Model: New Standard
A.P.C. makes some of the best boyfriend jeans, which are even better when worn by girls. Buy them in raw selvage denim and have your boyfriend wear his impressions on them. The shape of his wallet, the crease where his knee bends, and the bulge at his fly will fade first, leaving you with map of his movements.
The Girlfriend Jean
Brand: BLK DNM
Model(s): Jeans 6 and Jeans 8
If I had a nickel for every time I heard men whine over the elongated ass of jeans like these! Good thing I relish such everyday exercises of my feminism. Ladies, we ladies love you in these jeans. Johan Lindeberg’s BLK DNM Jeans 6 and Jeans 8 are high rise. Real high, like up at the natural waist, over the hips, at the smallest part of you. Any higher and we’re talking a jumpsuit.
For the Woman Who Wants to be Unzipped
From the Swedish design house with Ambition to Create Novel Expressions, comes the Skin, a denim legging with an exposed center back zipper closure. Best suited for apple bottoms and other attention wanting behinds.
The Everywoman Jean
Brand: Rag & Bone
Model: Skinny Jean
From New York’s Rag & Bone, these jeans are made in the USA with a democratic ideal. Slim cut, mid-rise, and super stretchy, the Skinny Jeans come endorsed by a gamut of different bods.
Worthy of Customization

Price: Custom jeans start around $500, bespoke at $1200
How much is your butt worth? At 3x1 you can have a custom pair tailored to your derriere. Even more selective? Try bespoke, built from scratch just for you—your cut, your cloth, your thread, your hardware. You spoiled thing, you.
The Conscientious Californian
Brand: THVM Atelier
Thvm Atelier, based out of Echo Park, Los Angeles, makes quality denim with an ethic to match its locale. Think Raquel Allegra, think Ariel Pink, think macrobiotic diets, think taught yoga butts. Shown here in Solar.
Every girl knows the most crucial part in picking out a new pair of jeans is how the cut of denim shapes your bum. Does it squish, sculpt, shape, squeeze? Does it make me look fat? Will anyone notice that I’ve been doing squats? The answer is depending on what kind of jeans you buy. Here, with the help of famous artist Jack Dylan, we map out your best bets for your best butts.
