Style Inspiration: 5 Denim brands you should know

Denim is everywhere, it can be worn for for casual and dressy occasions. However, finding a great fitting pair of jeans or a cool denim jacket can be a challenge. Denim brands are making an array of fits, washes and styles at different price points to appeal to many different kinds of buyers. Denim brands are even incorporating other materials into their usual all cotton lineups such as elastane (also known as spandex or lycra) and polyester. Stretch denim allows your denim to retain its shape and conform to your body thus providing a better fit. Here are 5 denim brands (in no particular order) I like and think you'll find stylish, affordable and cool. You should definitely check them out and add a few pieces to your denim stash.

1. Fidelity Denim

I really like these for dressier occasions. They fit like a glove and retain their shape throughout a night of nonstop dancing. The style I prefer is the 50-11, it's a classic straight leg jean that is made with a cotton and polyester blend. The style is very soft and fading is very minimal. The 50-11 has a higher rise in the back to ensure no plumber's crack.

2. Rogue Territory

This LA-based brand is my go-to brand for selvedge denim. The fit and quality are excellent. The denim fades nicely over time and gives a vintage, broken-in look. Remember to size down when purchasing selvedge denim. The denim will mold to your body over time. A good rule of thumb for sizing is that your jeans should fit snug and you shouldn't need a belt to wear them. Check out this link (selvedge explained) for an explanation of the difference between selvedge and non-selvedge denim.
