The importance of a great fitting pair of jeans should never be underestimated. Jeans are what makes the world go round when it comes to men and how they choose to dress.
Once upon a time it was trousers that dominated a man’s wardrobe, but in recent times owning a great pair of jeans has become even more important. Every man loves a good pair of jeans. Whether it be David Beckham in his customary pair of Dior Homme Jeans, or Brad Pitt in a slouchy pair of PRPS, nobody is too good for Denim. The one thing that we must understand though when buying a pair of Jeans is the fit. The fit is absolutely crucial in regards to looking extremely good, or extremely bad.
The mistake that many men make when it comes to jeans is the length of the denim. It really does make sense to firstly try on the potential pair before you buy, whilst also identifying what pair of shoes or trainers etc you will wear with them. That’s right guys: The ones that you select might look great with one pair of shoes, but you may well find that the other pair of shoes you had in mind to wear might not quite work. The main reason for why even a good pair of denim do not work with everything is down to either the width of the denim at the bottom, or it is down to the width of the shoe. Jeans that slim down at the ankle look considerably better with slimmer shoes or trainers that are not so wide. Sporting a pair of chunky Basketball trainers with a skinny or slim pair of jeans might make you look out of proportion. Of course, if this is the look you are going for then duly continue.
A good fitting pair of denim can be brought by anybody and it does not have to completely kill your budget. If you are going for the Ryan Gosling look and want to find a dark wash pair of denim, you have various options on the high street. Allsaints, Topman and Reiss all have great options at reasonable prices. Alternatively if your look is inspired by Adam Levine, a pair of Levis 511′s might be a favourable option at £75.
Jeans come in various styles from slim, to low-rise, to bootcut. Identify what works for your shape and take it from there. Try your jeans on before you purchase and remember to wear your jeans the way they are meant to be worn… At the waist and not halfway down your bum.
