The MF Guide to Shopping for Jeans

The right pair of jeans can show off all the work you’ve been doing in the gym—or mask the flaws you wish people didn’t see. Here are six pairs we’re loving right now, plus tips for picking the pair that’s right for your specific body type.
“Straight cuts are ideal for shorter guys since they can be hemmed without losing the shape of the pant", Taverniti says. Pay attention to the rise of the jean, though, since it’s the one thing that can’t be altered. Low-rise styles generally work better the shorter you are. And whatever you do, don’t cuff your jeans or let fabric bunch up around your ankles - you'll just look shorter.
