The 6 Pairs Of Jeans Every Man Needs

And how to wear them, from raw denim to white (really)

Your most versatile wardrobe item – a strong pair of jeans – will see you through most situations.

Once you’ve found the perfect pair, embrace the look of the season and team them with a slim-cut, lightly faded denim jacket.

Double denim might seem scary but it’s easier to pull off than you think. Piece of straw in mouth optional.

2 | Indigo


Slim-cut indigo denim jeans look smart in the office but work well for weekend wear, too. This pair from 7 For All Mankind stretches to help hold its shape.

3 | Raw Denim

Bring out your inner denim geek with G-Star’s perfectly rigid raw denim jeans. We recommend teaming with a white T-shirt, navy overshirt and slicked-back haircut. Oh, and avoid sitting on pale furniture at all costs.

4 | Stonewash

Worn a little baggy with a subtle taper and perhaps an ankle roll, stonewashed jeans will look understated and chic. Team with white Superga sneakers and most importantly no socks, for a great off-duty summer look.

5 | Worn

A strong pair of well-worn jeans is best for festivals. Opt for a slim shape and team with a loop-back grey marl sweater and (inevitably) a jazzy waterproof.
