It is not easy for a short slim man to find the perfect jeans, so here are the best 10 jeans recomended for you.
Gap Stretch Skinny
These jeans fit well and look great. They probably won’t age as well as higher quality denim, but still, I’m very happy with this purchase.
Uniqlo Slim Fit
Uniqlo’s “slim fit” isn’t quite slim enough for my chicken legs. Guess I should stop skipping leg day…
Uniqlo Skinny Tapered
These need to be hemmed (they only had 34″ inseams in stock), but other than that they fit really well, and they’re very comfortable.
These jeans almost made my top three.
Levi’s 510 Skinny
They fit well, they’re affordable, and they’re almost always available in a bunch of different sizes and colors. What’s not to love?
Nudie Pipe Led
These jeans are worth the price tag. They somehow manage to be super slim but comfortable at the same time.
Trust me, I did a few lunges while wearing them just to make sure.
A.P.C. Petit New Standard
These run way big, so you need to size down at least two sizes to get a pair that fits.
The denim and craftsmanship and clearly top notch. Too bad they’re not made with the smaller man in mind.
Rag & Bone Fit 1 (Skinny Leg)
I don’t say this often, but these are a bit too slim, especially in the, ahem, seat. I actually tried a size 29 too, but it was too loose around the waist.
This is why it’s important to try on lots of different brands. Many just aren’t made for your build.
Mott & Bow Skinny
Definitely not “skinny” but very comfortable. These were way too long out of the box, so I got them hemmed to a more appropriate length.
I think Mott & Bow offers high quality jeans for a competitive price, but I’d prefer a slimmer cut.

Peter Manning NYC
What sets PMNYC jeans apart is that they’re made specifically for short men. This means that every little detail – from the size of the pockets to the shorter rise – flatters the ‘not so tall’ body type.
Just look at these back pockets compared to those on the A.P.C. jeans!
Peter Manning jeans are cut slim-straight, which will look great on most men, but I prefer a bit more taper through the leg.
Also, keep in mind that the overall style of these jeans is pretty classic (i.e., better suited for older gents).

DSTLD Cigarette Raw
For raw denim, these are very affordable. They’re also very stiff right out of the box, but I’m sure they’ll break in nicely.
I only wish they had a slightly longer rise so I could wear them a little higher up on my waist.
If you’re looking for some entry level raw denim that you can break in and create some sick fades, bruh, these are a great choice.
