I recently had the chance to review a couple pairs of Coutie Destroyed Panel denim. The opportunity to do so was an exciting and eye-opening experience. Coutie has a stellar reputation in the denim community and I found out first hand why that is so. The company knows what it takes to make comfortable, stylish, quality denim.

The fade of the denim coupled perfectly with the worn spots on the jeans, giving them a unique and appealing look. Right from the outset the jeans looked like I had made them my own long before. Contrasting with the worn look, the stitching and details (particularly around the knee) helped the denim to look updated.

Few things are as important to jeans as the fit. With a 98/2 denim spandex mix, these slim Coutie jeans fit snug, yet still allowed for comfort and a great range of motion. It felt great having a 12oz denim in such a slim cut that still provided a high level of comfort.

Another detail which is pretty unique in men’s denim is the ankle zipper. These are really hard to find and thank you, Coutie, for these:-)

I had an opportunity to try both the Coutie Destroyed Panel in blue and black, but was more partial to the blue denim as they seemed to compliment more items in my wardrobe. For me, the lighter wash was perfect as it allowed for greater versatility when pairing them with a nice shirt and footwear for hitting the town or just hanging out. Versatility is one of the most important qualities for me when it comes to new denim: the Coutie Destroyed Panel blue jeans certainly delivered in that regard. The unique wear and stitching of the jeans, with the zipper cuff, makes for an eye-catching and comfortable pair of denim. Simply put; this is a great pair of denim, distressed yet comfortable with details that really set Coutie apart from other brands.

The quality, fit, comfort, and unique look of Coutie make them a necessary addition to any guy’s denim lineup.


  1. I hope Justin Bieber sees this review since he seems to be a fan of jeans with ankle zippers.

  2. Nice jeans. Masculine, fashion forward, and the lean fit is flattering even though the blogger isn’t skinny. A good pair to add to a man’s wardrobe mix. I can’t tell from the pix if there is or isn’t a sat on a chalkboard issue from he back on the light blue pair. I think black is just as versatile as blue. I think they went a bit overboard on the rips but they will come in handy in a few months.
