Best jeans in town - where can I buy them?

Am looking for a good pair of jeans, slim fit, wider at the ankles, something really trendy. I tried all the shops at Cap3000 but haven't been successful L Any suggestions for places with a good selection or the widest choice of jeans are very much appreciated. Nice, Antibes, Cannes area would be perfect. Thanks.

Try Nikita in Antibes or Juan Les Pins for lots of Miss Sixty, God Save the Queenetc

Jeans are either "American" cut or "European" cut. The European cut is much smaller and made to very different measurements.

Also, here are two international size tables:

Hey there!

Definitely shopped my way around Nice in the 9 months I was there, so here goes.

In Nice, in the Zone Pieton, there is a shop called Kentucky that sells a ton of different kinds of jeans. Jeans like Diesel, Seven, etc...but really good selection. Trendy too, and those designers make a huge selection of different types of jeans. It's on the right hand side if you're coming from Place Massena, quite far down, on a corner.

Zara and H&M both have quite trendy jean selections, but it's more a matter of whether they fit your body type. It took me 9 months to find a pair of H&M jeans that fit, but i love them, and they're pretty cheap! Zara's the same, but again I love the jeans I have, and they were pretty cheap. Both stores are on Jean Medecin. Zara being 2 blocks past Galerie Lafayette on the right, and H&M being further up the street, about 3 blocks past Nice Etoile, also on the right hand side.

Happy SHopping!!! Let me know if you need more help!

The industrial estate in Mandelieu, opposite the Ferrari garage and next door to Darty there is a good Jeans shop, lots of Levi`s, Diesel etc etc

Otherwise, spend a day in the centre of Nice or Cannes and have wander, there are loads of places dotted around
