Ah, denim—the people’s cloth. A fabric universally beloved by even the tidiest, most polished percentage of humankind. But as the earth’s climate gives way to scorching temperatures and rising humidity, so too will the climate in your pants. Those raw denim jeans aren't doing you any favors. And since wearing shorts to the office is right out (and yes, it most certainly is right out), you’re going to need a pair of trustworthy blue jeans for the season ahead.

Our collection below ought to serve as a nice, well-rounded foundation for handling such a sartorial dilemma—let’s dive in together, shall we?

Levi’s 511 Authentic, $98
The original blue jean—made in America, worn by America. (And by America, I mean Bruce Springsteen.)

Acne Studios Max Used Black, $200
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean the dark denim has to be set aside. These off-blacks from Acne breathe easy and fit like a glove.
