If you don't have a pair yet, what are you waiting for?

Here's the bottom line: if you don't have a pair of white jeans in your closet, you need to get one.

Why? On no less than 10 occasions this year, this publication has advised its readers to invest in what is probably the single most style-forward and wearable pair of pants a guy can buy right now. They're bang on-trend for summer, and ridiculously easy to pull off. They're just as appealing straight from the store as they are when they're a little distressed. They even look good with sneakers, and because they're available at a variety of price points, it doesn't matter if you make a living flipping burgers or running a hedge fund. Every guy can (and should) have a pair of these things at his disposal. Even Prince William owns a pair, and—with all do respect to His Royal Highness—you're probably way more stylish than that guy.

And if you won't listen to us (or the prince), take a page from the book of the imminently stylish singer and actor Nick Jonas. The young star was spotted in Las Vegas over the weekend, performing for a crowd at the Wynn in a pair of (you guessed it!) white jeans. As he's done before, he paired the denim with a t-shirt and a jacket in dark shades, which helped give the jeans some edge.

If summer drawing to an end has you worried that the expiration date for wearing these bad boys is coming to a close, fret not. You can keep wearing these through the fall, and even into the winter. And you definitely can't say that about your favorite pair of shorts.
