It's known as one of the brands responsible for upping denim's accepted price range, and you'll understand why when your assets catch some quality reflections in these rhinestone-finished stretch boot cuts by culty fave Seven for All Mankind ($290, Aritzia , 50 Bloor West, 934-0935, www.aritzia. ca).
With stylish man-purses so hard to come by, you'll be thankful that these distressed pseudo painter jeans ($59.90, H&M , 1 Dundas West, 416-593-0064) have ample buttoned pockets in the back - and feature a blessedly low price tag.
Bonkers for boho? You'll definitely out your inner hippie in these heavily embroidered retro-California numbers by People for Peace ($338, Over the Rainbow , 101 Yorkville, 416-967-7448, www.rainbowjeans.com.)
Ripped enough to be cool, but not too torn to be a rip-off, these men's Mobil jeans by Stussy ($172, Uncle Otis , 26 Bellair, 416-920-2281) offer a stylish compromise.
Created by Canadian-based jean genius Jason Trotzuk (founder of Dish jeans), this new Fidelity line is causing a retail uproar. Notice the tailored butt-enhancing darts above the pockets on these Snap Dragons ($145, Body Blue Denim Lab , 724 Queen West, 416-703-7601)? And the trendy straight leg? That's what I'm talkin' 'bout, people.
