We love jeans at NYLON--so much so that we have an entire issue devoted to them. But it's not just in our pages where we obsess over them; on any given day, you can find at least a dozen NYLON staffers donning skinnies, cut-offs, button-downs, and more, all in the iconic fabric.
But like all things, we each have our favorites. With prime jean-wearing season upon us, we spent a day documenting NYLON staffers' favorite pairs. What did we learn? That a) whether it's a fashion editor or a marketing director, we know our denim, and b) we're so not afraid to show off our knowledge.
Scroll through our gallery to see Team NYLON show off their good jeans (and in the process, get a little bit of inspiration for yourself).
