Style icon and legendary former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue once said, “Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola”.
Blue jeans have come a long way since the acid washed, patch covered, ripped and torn bottoms of yesterday. Today, they are just about the most important article of clothing in any wardrobe. The fact is, blue jeans now define our fashion sense more than any other item.
Men, for the most part, should call jeans the perfect go-to item in the closet for ALMOST any occasion. The style conscience man should also be prepared to have multiple pairs of jeans in a variety of hues for many different fashionable moments. For example, the jeans you wear to a sporting event are not the jeans to wear on a nice date, to dinner or to a special event.
The darker the jean, the better they are. I cannot stress the importance of this more. The darker, richer hues should be worn with a crisp shirt and blazer on a date night or even to the office for casual days. Slightly lighter tones and those with some minor scuffs and tears should be saved for the sports arena and the market. Those with patches, rips and stains should be donated to charity or used for yard work ONLY! You know the jeans I’m talking about guys.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors or fits, but straight leg or slimmer cut jeans are the most flattering on any body type.
