Fall is always a great time to get a new pair of jeans, and if you don't yet, one pair of black jeans is a solid bet for any guy. Your name doesn't have to be Johnny Cash to wear it well, either. Whether paired with a crisp white tee and leather jacket, or a raw denim trucker jacket and henley, there are fewer things that can make you an instant badass. Like any pair of raw denim, they'll get a bit lighter over time, usually fading into a charcoal grey. Of course, there are plenty of pairs that've been overdyed to maintain their color through numerous wears. That's why we've rounded up a few of the best in a range of prices.
