The skinny Jean
Once upon a time, skinny jeans seemed an odd thing to associate with men’s fashion. But over time and through the growth of alternative fashion, it’s become a welcome staple of the modern gent. But history aside, it’s a fantastic, versatile option for both young and young at heart. The problem then is finding what colour? Black, White or Blue?
Does what it says on the tin
Straight fit jeans are a true classic, sitting on the hips and maintaining the same line right down to your shoes. This is a great style for those off-duty days, where you can relax while still looking smart. These jeans are popular options in our Farah collection, designed for the practical man.
A different approach
Want the look of slim jeans without the limitations of a skinny fit? Check out our tapered fit jeans. Offering bags of room at the top and a slimmer appearance at the calf, the tapered fit is a burgeoning hero in the world of men’s jeans. Just think of it as an inverse bootcut.
The accessible skinny
Stretch skinny jeans are the kind of mens jean you want in your life. Comfortable yet still bang on trend, they don’t cling quite as much as skinny jean. Plus, our stretch skinny fit go with just about everything – from long-sleeved tops and trainers to shirts and shoes.
Bootcut jean get a bad rep, and we’re here to put an end to it. This often forgotten member of the denim brigade has stood the test of time for good reason: they’re flattering, comfortable and versatile. Not as dramatic as a flare, these jeans provide enough coverage for a boot – so you can add height without drawing attention.
Types of Men’s Jeans
Not all men like the modern skinny jeans look and understand the difference between skinny, skinny stretch, straight, regular, bootcut and tapered so here is a little guide to help you pick the perfect jean.
Common types of Men’s Jeans:
The skinny jean is the modern style typically favoured by the younger man. This is a standard jean with a slim leg width which creates a tighter look and fit.
Skinny Stretch Fit
The skinny stretch jean is a skinny jean made with a denim material which has a bit more of a stretch which gives a more comfy and slightly looser fit.
The straight fit is the traditional fit, straight width legs from the top to the bottom which give a more classic look.
Relaxed fit, sometimes called “Comfort fit” is generally a wider legged looser fitting jean which allows for movement and comfort.
The bootcut is a straight leg jean which then slightly widens at the bottom to effectively cover a boot. They are not quite a “Flare” as the additional width is not visibly noticeable but the concept is similar.
The tapered fit is a little bit like the reverse of a bootcut, where the bootcut is wider at the bottom of the leg the tapered jean provides more width at the top of the leg and then goes slimmer at the ankle.
