The Explosion of Great Jeans

In recent years, the blue jean industry has exploded with options in fit, leg styles and color — although it would be welcome if these great-fitting jeans came in a range of colors like fuchsia, lime, grass etc. However, the beautiful blue shades in which they are available does a jeans-lover proud.

While I've always loved fashion, I do not not love to shop and this plethora of choices can be overwhelming. Since I buy almost everything online, I've tried to do this with jeans but until you are familiar with fits, brands and cuts, it's a sea of confusion and not easy since you have to pay and get credited for mistakes. With jeans, it can be even harder than shoes to get a fit you like in the waist, butt, legs, along with a color and style you want; this is serious fashion engineering. Also, jeans can stretch or shrink as you own them and only testing really tells you that.

The solution: Beginnings Bleus, an amazingly great jeans store in Bayside, New York (and two more in Westchester) that my girlfriend, Jodi, turned me onto. Wow — the people who work there are serious jeans consultants. They are familiar with all the top brands, fits and colors and pay attention to you with in-depth service. Thanks to them, I was able to finally get some great-fitting jeans. I've tried cheaper choices and they don't fit well. While these brands cost a pretty penny, there are often sales where things get marked way down. Once you know what you like, you can try looking online too but even the same brand fits widely differently in different styles so a place like Beginnings Bleus is a lifesaver or at least a jeanssaver.
