Closure – The zipper and button, or “fly” is something that normally goes unnoticed when buying a pair of jeans but it can be a pain if it’s faulty or a bit too funky. So make sure it’s comfy before buying.

Pocket – The pocket is where most brands put their tab and name. It’s also the place you use for storage. A good pair should have spacious pockets that aren’t very baggy.

Stitch – The stitching comes in two great options – classic with golden thread, or the indistinguishable blue thread stitch. The former definitely looks classier.

Cuff – The cuff matters a lot if you like to roll up the bottom of your jeans and add a feel of coolness and freedom.

Wash – The wash of the jeans or its color depends on the outfit you plan on wearing it with and also differs from person to person. It will take you some time to build your taste in this section.
