The Denim Guide: Men’s Edition

 
Guys, jeans are jeans, right? Not exactly. Whether you’re athletic, thin, or somewhere in between, there’s a pair to suit your body shape. Read up on these facts, then let the “you look good” compliments roll on in.

Boot-Cut
Recognized by a slightly larger hem – which accommodates sturdier shoes like work boots – and a fitted silhouette from waist to knee. These jeans sit right at the hips.

Best fit: athletic or average. Consider this your go-to pair. A little on the tall side? The enlarged hem balances out a long frame.

Straight
These jeans create a sleek line all the way down, from hip to foot. Simple and straightforward, this is as versatile as it gets.

Best fit: athletic, average, or thin. This is the everyman’s jean. Snug enough to sit comfortably on hips and show off your sculpted lower half, yet not too baggy.

Skinny
Otherwise known as the indie-rock staple. These fitted pairs come in moderately longer lengths, ideal for bunching at the ankle.

Best fit: thin. Embrace this trend. You can rock a slimmer cut – just be sure to look for styles with a little bit of stretch. It will create the illusion of a slightly bigger frame.

Our A Guy’s Got Needs: Essential Jeans Boutique opens Monday, July 1, at 11AM ET.
