Selvedge Denim gives off a clean and natural edge that doesn’t fray, basically making it the reinforced version of unwashed or raw denim. The difference lies in the outer edge of the fabric. Raw denim is considered as the overall characteristics of the finished material. And selvedge denim is also more expensive due to these properties. You can pair it with denim jackets, tees and collared shirts for a striking casual to smart-casual look.
This is probably the most popular choice of cut for men because it fits the best and provides the most comfort. If you’re a newbie to the denim cuts, we recommend that you start with this one. You can then decide to either go skinnier or looser based on how you feel about it. What makes slim jeans stand out is the fact that it follows the contour of your leg to form a good looking silhouette without losing blood in the lower half of your body. This fit also means that you’ve got a vast selection to choose from such as fitted tees to collared shirts and casual suits.
Undeniable another cut that’s become popular over recent years is skinny jeans. Standard skinny jeans are cut close to the leg but have somewhat of a tolerance. The tailored look that skinny jeans give off, means that it’s perfect for a smart-casual appearance and another advantage is that it makes you look taller thanks to its tapered cut. If you want to take your wardrobe to the next level, pair your jeans with collared shirts, knitwear, casual blazers and ties for a well-rounded look. But of course, they work just as well with casual jackets and simple tee’s.
Straight cuts trousers mean that the trouser leg falls straight from the knee to the hem. The fit is usually looser and the diameter at your thighs, knees, calf and ankles remain the same size. The best combos for straight cuts are looser fitting layers. You would want to avoid wearing tight tops with this cut because it throws off the balance completely. We’ve noticed that doubling up on denim is never a bad idea with straight cuts. So combine it with either denim shirts or layered denim jackets to make the most of your outfit. You’ll also be quiet surprised when you throw on a loose sweater with straight cut jeans.
