MEN'S FIT GUIDE
Simply, it’s a comfortable fit that doesn’t cling to the body so it’s easy to move about without hindrance. It works better if one has the legs to fill them, or it’s flirting with the danger of stumbling into dad-jeans territory, which, ironically, according to some fashion experts, is actually a thing. This fit works better with classic workwear that has a neat fit, such as worker jackets and plaid shirts, and a sturdy pair of lace-up boots; workshop experience is not mandatory though.
Skinny jeans have been riding high for the past decade and a half with very little signs of slowing down and there are reasons for it. They look great on fashion models and lean young things and therefore best worn by those who wear size 32 or smaller. Alert: one ought to be prepared to find another place to stow the wallet and the phone. Best to avoid going too skin-tight on top. And skinny on skinny is a strict no-no! An oversized shirt, jacket or chunky sweater will help balance those proportions.
The most versatile style that sits comfortably between the extremes of regular and skinny fits and suits most body shapes. Some slim fits taper towards the bottom or can be cropped. A good quality pair of slim-fit indigo jeans will partner well with anything, whether that’s a tailored jacket, a chunky knit sweater or just a crisp white T-shirt, sneakers, boots or leather loafers. Jeans, most certainly, now are the anchor of the contemporary men’s wardrobe. Days are spent in them, at home, work or to nice dinners, so it’s important to choose a pair with versatility.
The straight-leg jeans are a timeless choice, especially for the stockier folks who prefer the rugged versatility of denim without the discomfort of squeezing into leaner cuts. This fit is also fairly adaptable for most occasions and purposes. Just make sure it fits well around your top half without too much excess denim at the rear.
