Know which jeans suit you so you can look your best and, best of all, shorten your shopping time.

Step 1: Get straight cut
Get classic straight cut jeans, which sit at your natural waist and feature a straight leg, if you're tall and slim. You can also get away with skinny jeans, that have a tight-fitting, slim cut leg all the way to the ankle.

Step 2: Opt for wide leg
Opt for wide leg jeans, which sit at your natural waist and have a relaxed, loose fit through the seat and thighs, to show off an athletic, muscular build. These also work if you're heavier, have love-handles, or a larger waistline.

Dark washes are the most flattering for bigger guys.

Step 3: Avoid slim cuts
Avoid slim-cut jeans if you're slim and average or below-average height, which might make you look too lean. You'll just get lost in wide leg jeans, so stick to straight-cut or slightly flared jeans. Try back pockets with flaps to maximize a flat butt.

Step 4: Go for bootleg or flare
Go for boot-cut jeans, which work on most men. Designed to accommodate cowboy boots, these pants are relaxed through the leg and gently widen from the knee to the ankle.

Boot-cut jeans are always in style.

Step 5: Try low-rise
Try low-rise jeans, which sit below the waistline on the hip bones, if you're slender. They come in slim fit, boot-cut, wide leg, or straight cut, to flatter a range of figures. Just make sure you wear a longer shirt to avoid an accidental midriff-baring moment — which no one wants.

Did You Know?
Jeans were called "waist overalls" or just "overalls" before 1960, when Levi Strauss changed the popular name to "jeans."
