Playing Favorites: Ten Denim Brands Our Editors Trust

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome back to Editor's Essentials, a new Wednesday feature in which editors from around the Racked network discuss their all-time favorite buys. Today's topic: Jeans. As it happens, our staff is largely on the petite side (and apparently not lacking in butt). We've got recommendations for curvy bodies, athletic legs, those who suffer from waistband gap, and the bootcut that more than one skinny-jean-devotee will throw her weight behind. Read on for ten denim brands road-tested by our very own experts.
