There's nothing quite like the euphoric experience of discovering the perfect pair of jeans. No doubt, most of us have a couple that springs to mind. The ones that fit like a glove - so much so it's as if they were specifically created for us. But what about when your best-loved pair begins to deteriorate? Whether it's a broken zip or a faded wash - the disappointment quickly becomes overwhelming when faced with the challenge of sourcing a replacement pair. (If they're beyond salvation, of course. Keep your friends close and your tailor closer.)

Fear not; our curated edit of Scandi-designed jeans has you covered. After all, we are known for nailing minimalism and casual staples. From light-wash, high-rise "essential denim" by Day Birger et Mikkelsen to genderless slim-fit flares by Amendi and, finally, classic boot-cut jeans by Hope, the below selection epitomises the craftsmanship and re-imagination of every classic. You'll undoubtedly find your next 'perfect pair' in no time.
