Best Jeans

  • Joe’s Jeans

    77 Mercer St., nr. Spring St.; 212-925-5727

    At this six-month-old Soho boutique, choosing a pair of jeans is akin to picking out a polish shade at the nail salon. Fifty-five hues of denim line the walls, grenadine, parakeet, and tangerine supplementing regular indigos. Unlike thigh-strangling jeggings, these skinny jeans are structured to flatter many forms thanks to a hint of stretch, and the waistband hits just above the hips, staving off gaping and muffin tops.

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
