Denim is never dead. A pair of jeans Is incredibly versatile and there is a lot of choice in the market at both price point and style. As with any enduring men’s staple, each season means subtle tweaks to the winning formula. So to ensure you’re not lagging behind, we’ve spun this handy new-season denim guide.
Wide legs might have gained a foothold where trousers are concerned, but in denim, slim and skinny fits continue to reign supreme. Slimmer and skinny cuts continue to dominate for men and we’re seeing that men are getting used to stretch jeans and increasingly demanding higher stretch styles.
This season there is a return to authentic faded washes that have a bit more of a vintage feel to them. Think rougher around the edges – with a healthy dose of distressing, patchwork, rips and frays. This sort of style tends to appear on skinny jeans and works far better with an oversized tee or sweat and sneakers.
As front-and-centre as faded styles are, unwashed straight-leg indigo and black styles still sit at the core of any solid denim line-up. A pair of indigo or black jeans in either a slim or straight fit works when worn with a blazer or fine knit, loafers or a pair of Derby shoes.
