black leather Zac Efron

Stole my look!! Black leather on Ellen

Fortune favors the bold…I guess. I’m a split decision on this look, but if you want to let everyone know you party, leather could be something.

Wrap up on Zac’s Style

If I had to sum it up, I’d say Zac does what a lot of guys should do…keeps it simple. Simple color, simple cuts and a set of standards that look great.

Editor’s Choice for Black Jeans

Editor’s Choice for Black Jeans 🌟

Rag & Bone Standard Issue Fit 1 $195.00

Standard Issue is the right name for these jeans. If you are like countless other hip 20 and 30 somethings out there, you know that black slim cut jeans are part of the uniform. I love the uniform, flat black wash of these jeans…so minimal and chic.

Reasons We Love These Jeans

  • Many people prefer the engineered fabrics that emphasize stretch and feel — which I totally understand — but 98% cotton jeans are so much more durable. They also have the bonus where they get more comfortable over time, which is a little reward.
  • More than any of the other jeans mentioned, these are classy and cool. They have a Paris chic feel to them, can be worn with basically anything (including out with your in laws) and will last forever. These are the jeans I would pick from this list.
  • Things to Look Out For

  • By the same token, 98% cotton jeans tend to be stiffer than stretch jeans when you first put them on. For many, this could be an issue, especially if you are a half size and right on the border but don’t want to size up.
  • Rag & Bone is kind of an old brand — part of the first wave of artisan denim — so I know many of you denim heads want the latest and greatest. Nothing wrong with the greatest hits though!!
  • Frame L’Homme $147.00

    The classic cut from one of my personal favorites, FRAME denim, like the other jeans mentioned these are an excellent choice for a versatile pair of nice jeans. Edgier than their counterparts, these would work well if you live in a hip Metro but might be a little too hot to handle if you are in a more conservative city.

    Reasons We Love These Jeans

  • Subtle enough to fit with most outfits. FRAME in general has very minimal detailing, so these jeans won’t steal the show…they’ll just be your lowkey partner in crime.
  • FRAME is famous for its quality fabric and I love the feel of these jeans — sturdy and comfortable with a 62% cotton blend, which means they are much more comfortable than regular jeans.
  • If you like distressing, these are a great pair to go with. The destruction detail on either knee looks very genuine and is not distracting or excessive…just understated and cool.
  • Things to Look Out For

  • Like I mentioned about, these have an edgier look than some of the other jeans in this review. If you DGAF and like to rock out, then its all good. If you have to look professional (not just cool) then you may want to look at another option.
  • I always go back and forth on destruction in jeans. If you wear these jeans a lot, you have to be really careful putting them on, or you will put your foot directly through the knee. I’ve done this and it is a bummer.
  • Diesel Thrommer Slim Fit Jeans in Black Denim $178.00

    The essential skinny black wash jeans, these are perfect for a night out or a day out…or just about anytime out. Every closet should have a nice pair or black denim, and these fit the bill.

    Measurements from size 32
    Rise: 10.25in / 26cm
    Inseam: 31in / 79cm
    Leg opening: 13.5in / 34cm

    Reasons We Love These Jeans

  • A solid pair of dark, understated denim is key to any wardrobe and these jeans are perfect for a wide range of situations.
  • Diesel has really improved their quality in both service and design, so these jeans will last you.
  • Things to Look Out For

  • Mixed reports of sizing on these jean, with some mentioning they run a little large
  • The whiskering and fade of the wash can make the jeans look too casual for a classic night on the town
  • If you love comfort, these are 92% cotton, so they won’t have the same stretch as some of the newer, engineered premium denim out right now.
