Structured or lived-in. Faded or saturated. Straight or skinny. Liberty shares the very best jeans brands for men to satisfy your every denim requirement
The cornerstone of every wardrobe and the foundation of (almost) every outfit, a good pair of jeans is nothing less than a modern day style necessity. But not just any pair will do. The best jeans are those that feel durable but wearable, smart but a little worn-in, classic but with an element of quirk. And thanks to a raft of forward-thinking brands – the kind found within the walls of Liberty – ticking all your denim boxes has never been easier. To help you navigate our edit of the best jeans brands for men, let Team Liberty walk through the labels we love.
