Our quest for the perfect denim may be never-ending, but I have two pairs of skinny jeans I adore: Vince's Skinny Jeans ($210--I found mine in Boston, but you can buy them online and Genetic Denim's Shane Cigarette in silver ($187--I bought mine at Rowe).

The Vince jeans might be the most comfy I've ever owned. And a note on both: Buy them a size smaller than you think you (or your giftee) will need, because they stretch.
