Finding the right pair of jeans is pretty much impossible.

There’s so much to consider: the fit and your build, the level of distress, which pairs can be worn to which occasions, and if they’ll need altered. Ugh. It’s all enough to give you a headache so severe that you give up shopping entirely. Your heart rate probably just went up reading this, let alone actually doing it.

So, what the hell do you do when you’ve given up hope?

As is the answer in most cases, leave it to the internet.

In this case, finding jeans doesn’t have to be so exhausting when you have someone else doing it for you. These 27 jeans are all very different, but each can be found online through reliable retailers. No matter your taste or budget, there’s a pair right for you. Looks like the impossible has become possible after all.
