For four years now, Agolde has been my denim brand of choice. I first bought one style, got hooked on it and have since bought and worn a variety of their styles. I am a jeans girl through and through – I love them for their comfortable and casual vibe but also for their versatility and the ability to dress them up, dress them down and wear them all year round.
Agolde Jeans Review
When I shop for denim I look for a few things. I want the jeans to be quality made and not stretch out after just one or two wears. I want them to hold their shape after being washed and I want the fit to be flattering. I invest in quality denim because I wear my pairs of jeans a lot.
Agolde is a premium denim label dedicated to setting the standard for advanced, directional denim. They aim to deliver a fresh reinterpretation on classic jean silhouettes.
I also love that the brand is focused on sustainability and attention to detail. They use advanced methods to reduce their imprint on the environment, including laser technology, ozone machines and high-efficiency wash methods. Their jeans are truly the best I’ve tried and have held up so well.
The Nico High Rise Slim jeans were my gateaway drug to the Agolde world aka my first pair of Agolde jeans and I haven’t looked back since. I had never had a jean that made me feel *that* good before. They slim my waist and hips and make me look taller.
The Nico was designed to be a go-anywhere, wear-with-anything kind of jean and I have 100% found that to be true. These jeans are majorly high-rise and have a slimmed straight fit with only the slightest bit of stretch (I find they barely have any give but I find this is why they are so flattering on!) I wear these with slingbacks, flats and pumps primarily.
I have these in a classic blue jean wash, a lighter wash with some distressing and a darker blue.
I size down to a size 27 for an extra snug fit.
My very favorite ankle crop jeans and my #1 most worn pair of jeans from my expansive collection. These are an extremely wearable, comfortable pair of jeans. Designed to go-anywhere and wear with just about anything. These are a mid-rise jean and have a slim-straight fit that hit me right at the ankle making them great to pair with ankle booties, flats and slingbacks. They look like a skinny jean but have a bit more room at the ankle which I love.
I size down to a size 27 in these.
The best denim shorts…ever. They have the perfect vintage, lived-in look but are tailored so they feel like they were made for you. I have the long version which I prefer to the shorter pair which I tried first and didn’t love on my legs. These are a classic cuff off short. They feature a roomier fit for a comfy feel and an elongated inseam.
I wear a size 28 in these so very true to size. I have the light wash on my list for next summer.
The Agolde Riley jean is the brand’s signature straight leg which has become super popular in recent months. It has a flattering high-rise and straight leg that holds close to the body. These jeans have no stretch so I definitely recommend sizing up if you prefer a roomier fit.
I wear size 28 in the Riley for a snug fit.

I haven’t tried the Agolde 90s Fit jeans that are super popular as they’re not my style and sadly the other popular Pinch Waist jeans weren’t a fit for me either when I tried them due to my height. But as denim is super personal to one’s body & one’s style, you may want to also try those!
You can find Agolde on their website but also at a variety of retailers you likely already shop at including Bloomingdales, Net-a-Porter, Nordstrom, Revolve, Saks Fifth Avenue and Shopbop. Each retailer often carries different washes and variations on the above styles so it is worth checking each out.
