When buying jeans, you should always go with Denim that speaks to you, you should listen to your instinct. Find jeans that make your butt look good and it always helps to shop with your girlfriend or significant other. Honesty is critical.

How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Jeans
The perfect pair of jeans are the ones you love. I think the J Brand Denim Co Kane body in 'Boone' is another great low rise, slim straight leg option. Boone is a classic dark rinse that universally looks good. You should expect to pay between £150 and £250.
The Walker body in either 'Outcast,' a blue-tinted wash or 'Outlaw,' an overdyed black wash is a great option that will take the working man from the office to the bar, dinner party or anywhere else he intends to go when his day at work is done.
The tall, skinny guy should stick with the slim, straight leg such as the the J Brand Denim Co Kane body. The slightly portly guys looks good in a fuller boot leg in a dark wash such as the J Brand Denim Co McCoy relaxed boot cut in 'Gaslamp.' The jean should not be too baggy from the thigh to the knee. The shorter guy looks good in a boot cut as well, but I also think a stove pipe straight leg like the J Brand Denim Co Kane, slim straight leg is flattering.
J Brand was co-founded by denim manufacturer Jeff Rudes and former stylist Susie Crippen. Jeff pioneered the French jeans boom in America in the late 70s with his first jeans brand, Paris 2000. In the 80s, he moved to California from New York and started Area Code, a trendy junior line of Lycra knits. Getting back into denim in the 90s, he partnered with industry icons Ron Herman and Adriano Goldschmied to create A. Gold E., a successful denim sportswear brand. He then stepped into the private label arena in 1999, helped Abercrombie & Fitch transform their denim collection and become their largest supplier of premium jeans. He partnered with Susie Crippen and J Brand launched as an exclusive at Ron Herman's Melrose jeans bar in the spring of 2005. In fall 2008, J Brand introduced a men's line under the label, J Brand Denim Co. The line reflects modern basics with a vintage sensibility, inspired by classic Americana.
