Jeans are a wardrobe staple and most people probably own more than one pair. What surprises me is that some people still believe that jeans are just jeans – what I mean to say is that some people seem to think that because jeans are casual, the cut, colour and fabric doesn’t really matter so long as they’re not dragging along the floor and you can fasten the waistband. This is so wrong! Jean styles can vary significantly, and depending on the cut, colour and style you can create a whole host of different looks, each totally unique. Jeans are not just jeans; they are a way of expressing who you are. We need to start giving them the respect they deserve and giving different styles a go… leaving you go-to jeans in the drawer.
Here are some of the best men’s jeans around at the moment:
Something a little different…
Osaka Grey Voi Jeans at TDF Fashion
A basic pair of jeans tells the world that you have probably thrown on the first thing that you found in your wardrobe this morning. Whilst there’s nothing at all wrong with feeling comfortable in the clothes that you’re wearing, you won’t make much of a statement in a boring pair of jeans! If you want to really stand out from the crowd then these Voi Jeans with braces and cuffed ankles will certainly do the trick – wear with big leather boots and a fine-knit polo shirt during the colder months.
It’s all about the detailing…
Police 883 Logo Front Straight Leg Jeans from Republic
On the subject of unusual styles, these black straight-legged jeans by Police provide something very different from average denim jeans. They come fitted with a front logo patch that fastens across the crotch area! These would look great worn with a decent pair of kicks and a simple t-shirt.
Top of the crotch…
President Skinny Jeans from All Saints
These jeans from All Saints are like the Marmite of jeans; you’ll either love them or hate them. They’re probably also the male equivalent of the female harem pant which also shares the same Marmite effect. They’re not for everyone. I mean you probably wouldn’t want to see your dad wearing a pair of these but they’re totally on-trend with their unique drop-crotch design. Personally I think these are effortlessly cool.
King of the pins…
Dr Denim Snap Skinny Jeans from ASOS
Boys, you’ll need a decent set of legs for these babies. These Dr Denim Snap Skinny Jeans are the ultimate in rock n roll fashion and would make a great wardrobe addition to any fashion-conscious fella brave enough to squeeze into them. Better buy some Vaseline too.
On your bike son…
Commuter 511 Skinny Jeans from Levis
Not only are these Commuter jeans from Levis smart and stylish but they also hide a secret…the reason why they’re called ‘Commuter’ is because they have a specially-designed belt loop that can comfortably hold a bicycle d-lock. Don’t worry if you don’t favour two-wheels, these can be worn by non-cyclists too! Smart enough to wear for work (unless you have to wear a suit of course) and casual enough to be cool.
