Mugsy Jeans Review - How Comfortable Are They Really?

I wear Mugsy Jeans a lot in my recent Instagram posts, so I figured it was about time I wrote a Mugsy Jeans review on my website to spread the word about these incredible products.

Four years ago (it was two years ago when I first wrote this post) I owned two pairs of Mugsy jeans, now I own about 10 pairs and counting! These are my go-to jeans on the weekend (since I’m business casual / formal most of the week). They also are the most comfortable pair of jeans in my closet, they fit the great, and they have some awesome detailing. I also really respect and support this company. Mugsy Jeans was founded by Leo T. who has continued to evolve the company into what it has become today.

If you're ever in Chicago be sure to check out the hours and head on over there! The Mugsy store is located in Lincoln Park.

Mugsy has expanded from jeans to chinos to shorts to bathing suits to blazers. Each and everyone of the products offered are spot on to the style and comfort of their original denim. They all follow the same theme of having a major stretch component. Several of my friends have purchased Mugsy over the years and they quickly end up buying additional pairs! I would highly recommend all of their products for anyone looking for more comfortable clothing!

Their products run true to size for a 'modern fit', meaning they run slimming than traditional department store sizing. The bathing suits have an incredible liner inside that makes wearing a bathing suit for a long period of time very comfortable. The EveryDay blazer is also a great product that will be different than every other blazer you own. It is super casual and is a perfect travel companion when you want something a little nicer, but don't want to deal with a wool blazer potentially getting wrinkled. I recently wore the EveryDay blazer throughout a trip to NYC and it was great!


These will likely be the most comfortable pair of denim in your closet. It’s unlike any other pair of denim due to the nontraditional denim blend, and IT WORKS. I would compare them to sweatpants, but you probably wouldn’t believe me. Mugsy was far ahead of the trend on stretch denim and chinos in fact they've been perfecting it for years. I remember wearing Mugsy at a time when most consumers had not even heard of stretch denim. Now it's almost becoming the norm!

Their chinos are also super comfortable and are perfect for any casual office environment. I find myself wearing their chinos with t-shirts, polos or untucked button downs to achieve that upper-casual look.


Comfort goes hand-in-hand with the excellent fit of the jeans. They are designed with a modern silhouette and a nice clean taper from the knee to the ankles. If you want the pant to fit a bet looser, then I would recommend sizing up in the waist and because of the stretch it will likely still fit really well!

The taper on their denim and chinos is a really nice, clean taper as well which keeps them looking really clean from waist to ankles.


Mugsy Jeans have a very unique electric blue hem running down the inside of the pants leg (where there is the usual messy overlap of fabric). It’s a really awesome detail if you’re interested in cuffing your jeans, which is a very ‘trendy’ look these days. When the jean is cuffed, the electric blue ID hem stands out in all the right ways.

Mugsy has this electric blue hem on their chinos as well, which is also great when you want to cuff your chinos, especially in the warmer weather!

Full Product Summary

As Mugsy has grown they have continued to launch new products, so I wanted to provide you with additional details on their current offering.

Mugsy denim has a 2-way stretch fabric that will make you feel like you’re wearing sweatpants. Some other key features include a stylish fit for an active lifestyle and flexibility that will move with you, not against you. They are available in every shade of blue you can imagine and also more neutral colors like white, gray, and black!

Comfortability is an understatement with these. Perfect for transitioning from work to happy hour! Their shorts are made of the same material as their chinos so they are also super flexible and lightweight. When it gets hot outside, you’ll want a pair of these to stay cool and comfortable. I wear their shorts all summer long and am always super comfortable. The only thing I would change is adding a button closure to the back pockets. Update: Mugsy has added a button closure to their short back pocket! Great work!

Mugsy naturally transitioned to offering joggers as part of their standard collections! As you can imagine, as with all of their products, stretchy and awesome! They have a slimmer profile which makes them look closer to actually pants, so they can work for a variety of


Mugsy recently redesigned their swim for an athletic body type, constructed with their spandex lining and roomy outer shell. No more pesky and uncomfortable net, which makes all the difference! You can expect the Mugsy stretch in these as well so you can be beach ready, pool ready, and bar ready!

A newer development for Mugsy, is their EveryBlazer that is machine washable and with a little steam, it’ll be ready to wear. This means no dry cleaner! It’s a clean and stylish fit that wears super comfortable and is almost more comparable to a light sweater. There is not lining and no padding, so it moves with you! As I mentioned above, on my last trip to NYC I brought this as my 'going out' blazer and ended up wearing it throughout the day as well since it added an extra layer of warmth and comfort!

As always, reach out if you have any questions! I hope you enjoyed my honest Mugsy Jeans review! This is NOT a paid sponsor post, however the items have been gifted to me from Mugsy over the years.

Are Chinos and Narrow bottom pants are same? I purchased my husband's pants online from ReeCoupons because he doesn't like shopping much.
