We know that every guy needs a staple pair of denim jeans in their wardrobe, a pair that'll carry them through season after season, in style. Whether it's an outing with the guys or date night with your partner, you can always rely on the perfect pair to do the talking for you - no matter the shape, design or style.
I think we can all agree when we say there isn't anything easier than putting together a fit' when it comes to denim. No matter the decade or season we're in, denim continues to be the go-to garment for men. A true backbone to effortless street style - it's an all-time foundational piece for any look. A great pair can take you plenty of places in a timeless and seamless manner. Think, from a long day at work (depending on your office) to game night with the guys. It really is the epitome of tran-seasonal fashion and we want to give you a guide on how to denim, confidently and accurately.
The first step is to know about each specific style (and wash) so you're well informed - this'll help making a choice and purchase much easier. We want you to create a premium fit' and get dressed in confidence.
Styles Of Denim
We've put together a comprehensive guide on men's jeans and their individual character - just to make styling that much easier:
Baggy Jeans - These usually come in different lengths & boast a loose-fitting, super relaxed fit - a comfortable and on-trend choice. Defined by their incredibly oversized nature, these definitely pass the vibe check.
Straight Leg Jeans - A popular silhouette in the never-ending fashion cycle, it's essentially a regular cut where the design is more relaxed. A straight leg jean is bound to never go out of style - a signature aesthetic.
Skinny Jeans - We're told after a certain age, wearing these are detrimental to your street cred. We disagree, when done right skinny jeans could be exactly what your outfit calls for. These feature a skinny fit through the legs and waist - they also usually offer some form of stretch!
Slim Jeans - They're not skinny & they're not straight either - if you're somewhere between liking those two jean styles, then these might just be the perfect fit for you. They feature a narrow leg opening, designed to follow the natural tapering line from your hip to ankle.
Let's talk about the straight jean. One of the most popular silhouettes of all time, straight jeans refer to a regular cut where the design is more relaxed. That means the fabric usually just falls straight from the knee to the hem.
Our straight denim jeans are designed to be worn in and lived in. Crafted from a cotton-blend, the soft fabrication means these jeans offer both a super cool and comfortable wear. Headed to a Friday night motive with the boys? Opt for an oversized slogan tee, a denim jacket and some sneakers for an elevated cool-casual vibe. If you're all about casual lowkey outings, look to a pair of slim fit jeans to do the trick.
When it comes to colour and washes, it really depends on you as an individual. Light blue is an obvious classic whilst a subtle beige adds an element of character. Shopping around and playing with a few different washes will help in finding the right fit for you & your style of dressing.
Just as easy as jeans, denim shorts are the ultimate essential - especially during the summer. Having a good pair in your rotation means endless styling options. Whether you choose to style your denim shorts with a slogan printed tee & sneakers or pair them with a linen button up, they’re a versatile and timeless piece for the street style minded guy.
