AG jeans have a vintage feel but modern sensibility that's tough to find. AG's denim artisans trawl flea markets and vintage shops the world over to find the perfect vintage jeans to replicate, from the washes to the perfectly worn-in feel, at the famed Koos Manufacturing plant (which has also produced jeans for Gap, Calvin Klein and J. Crew). Founded in 2000 by Adriano Goldschmied and Koos head Yul Ku, the made-in-the-U.S.A. brand mixes impeccable, tradition-driven construction with casually daring styles and colors.
Take a styling cue from the streetwise crowd in these modern, city-ready pieces.
Impeccably made jeans by brands like Naked & Famous, Raleigh, and Sandro.

There are two different schools of thought around denim: The first is that you buy your jeans raw, wear them for months on end without washing them, and watch as they fade precisely to the contours of your body. The second, and far easier method, is to buy them with the hard work already done. This is a collection of the latter style — featuring pairs from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Nudie, G-Star, and more.
