A while back I asked what my followers would like to hear about. Well Denim has been a particularly hot topic here in Texas now that we are starting to see some cooler weather so I will answer your questions here gents. Some articles will go on and on about all the ins and outs of denim. I have no intention of taking you on a goose chase here. I simply want you to now my thoughts when I choose denim.
Acid wash is great for the 80s and Wranglers. If you are looking for denim to complete your look, STAY AWAY from acid wash. I look for denim to clean line and sophisticate my look when I wear jeans. I am going to assume you all want to do the same. I look for a rich dark blue. Not too dark that the jeans can look black in color at night. I also want to stay away from any patterns, tears, or overly exuberant stitching schemes. Here simple is better.
I have tried for a long time to find the right fit. My bottom type has not made this treasure hunt easy on me. With Eurofashion hitting us here stateside, my search is finally over. Keeping with the same concept of clean line and sophistication, I present to you the slim fit. This is NOT skinny fit. They are two entirely different cuts and I suggest men stay away from skinny fit. If you are like me, you have been wearing the straight leg or boot cut your whole life. This baggy look was great about 10 years ago, but it will not give you the clean lines you are looking for.
Denim should be an investment, especially if you plan on wearing them often. If you plan on buying that perfect pair of denim, you should plan on spending anywhere from $100-$200. I also suggest buying two pairs when you find the perfect pair for you. Don't feel bad spending this much money on a pair of jeans. They could last you 5 years or more potentially and $100-$200 is cheaper than a night out in the city with dinner and bar hopping.
What is your denim?
