Men can live without football or without beer, but they can’t live without their lived-in pairs of denims! Denims are to men what lipsticks are to women – indispensible. So, it’s very important to have a few perfect pairs of denims in your wardrobe that can see you through all your fashion emergencies – in any season and on any occasion. Finding that right pair for yourself can be a tricky task if you don’t know the little things to look for while buying a pair. Here’s what you should keep in mind while looking for the denims of your dreams.
You must know your right waist size & inseam size as these are the two measurements that denim trousers are sold by. If you are confused about what your sizes are, go to a tailor and get them checked. Different brands of denims have different size charts, hence, it’s always advisable to try the denims on for size before buying. Don’t go for a fit that’s too tight, neither one that’s too loose. The pants should just sit snugly on your waist and hug your hips. The length can still be altered as per your height. While buying online, it’s better if you know what size of the brand that you are buying from fits you.
Nowadays, men are spoilt for choice when it comes to the cut & style of denims. From regular to slim, relaxed to classic or baggy to skinny; the myriad variety of fits can put you in a dilemma about which one to pick. A couple of regular or straight fits are wardrobe must-haves as they can be your go-to pieces for any casual outing. A slim fit looks dapper for semi-formal occasions or parties. College students can give out cool-dude vibes in relaxed or baggy fits. Choose a fit that complements your body type and makes you look dapper.
The colour & wash
Gone are the days when denims only used to come in blue or black. Today, you can choose from innumerable shades of colours and a wide range of washes. Have a nice mix of blues, blacks & greys in your wardrobe (along with a few colored ones if you want) in different washes such as acid wash, stone wash, raw wash, dark rinse & others. The distressed style is in right now, so a couple of pairs in the ripped pattern can be your fashionable friends while dressing up for music festivals or road trips.
With designers using their creativity on the ubiquitous classic denims, you can now pick a pair with cool features and stylish details. You can choose between zip closure fly and button closure fly, different shapes of back pockets, different colours of threads used for stitching and other small details that can change the way your denims look. A subtle branding looks classy vis-à-vis a loud logo; while little leather trims here & there can add a hint of grunge to the style.
Now that you know how to pick the right denims, go ahead and upgrade your jeans collection with the perfect pieces! After all, a good pair of denim never goes out of style!
