Buy It Now At: Mr. Porter, $185 
Why I Bought It: "I blew the crotch out on my last pair of my jeans, so I was desperate for new denim. I went to Self Edge downtown, thinking my search would be brief since I'm close to sample size. That was NOT the case. I must have tried on their entire inventory and came away with nothing. Then I remembered I had previously owned a pair of New Standards back in '09 and liked how they fit. I hit the A.P.C. store in SoHo and ended up copping the slimmer Petit Standards. Full retail. Those first 10 days breaking them in were hell, but now that they've loosened up a bit, I can walk/maneuver like a normal human again. "
