Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

From slouchy boyfriend jeans for an effortless look to hip-hugging skinny versions for a more polished touch to distressed baby blues for the ultimate Cali-cool ensemble, jeans are a perennial wardrobe staple that will never let you down. Given that LA is known as the denim capital, local denim devotees are blessed with an abundance of boutiques to shop jeans around town.

To ease your hunt for the perfect pair, we've revamped our LA denim shopping guide to include some new favorites. Score sweet deals at AG Jeans pop-up shop, dream up your custom pair with the help of Denim Refinery and have G-Star Raw tailor a pair to fit your stems like a glove. And for die hard jeans junkies, there's even a spot that will hook you up with cool home items made from reworked vintage denim.
