What Every Man Should Know About Style - Jeans

So yesterday, I talked about shoes and the types to wear when dressing for success. Tonight, I'll discuss the types of denim jeans that best fit your body type. Remember, your waist and inseam are two of the most important things to consider when purchasing these items. You NEVER want to buy a pair of jeans so short to the point that you have to give the illusion of your normal length by wearing them off of your buttocks. Why would you want to look like a human penguin with the crotch of your jeans swinging 20" below your package only to advertise the cheap underwear you selected that morning??? Its just simply unattractive...

Jeans we love them but gentlemen understand that if you wear a low rise, skinny or boot cut jean, please still wear a belt whether its fabric or leather. It completes the look and it keeps your pants up... along the waist. We don't need to see how much crack you can offer. See, I told you I would keep it real, lol. Skinny jeans can be dressed up or dressed down. They can look good with and 80's inspired high top sneaker, a fashionable derby, or a simple pair of Chuck Taylor aka Converse. They have versatility and can really look great only if its done right along with the right body type. If your on the rotund side like me, with a lot of hip and thigh action, then the skinny jean may not be for you. But if you want a great pair of jeans, bootcut and loose fit jeans are your best bet. They also offer versatility and can give a urban look or a clean look depending on what you're going for. Just don't overdo the rugged look unless your about to go to work on a construction site, lol. Quality denim jeans such as True Religion and Levi's can be purchased at Nordstrom, Levi Stores and Metropark. If your more on a budget and are also concerned about larger sizes try American Eagle, Levi Stores, Gap and Old Navy. The last stores I mentioned, carry sizes up to 46 or 48 and can be found on their online sites. Trust me, its worth shopping online. Last but not least, jeans should NEVER meet an iron, it kills the true fit. Once you wash and dry them, remove them immediately they will fit just like the first day you brought them.

  1. Great post buddy, so true...pull your damn pants up.

    Favorite jeans at the moment (budget style):
    Martin and Osa
    Lands End Canvas
    a few pair of Polo that I have laying around

    Just cause they cost a lot don't make them nice, leave that pocket embroidery for the women.
