Skinny jeans are out, guys. Boot cut jeans are back. Which means that straight legs are a great compromise.
For a while there, the skinny jean fad hit hard. But many of us didn’t necessarily jump in with both feet. The reason: Because skinny jeans don’t suit most guys. Skinny jeans look good on the Justin Biebers of the world. (An argument could be made for the Matthew McConagheauy’s of the world since his Dazed and Confused character Wooderson sported some salmon skinnies tucked into cowboy boys) But fads like skinny jeans come and go. Here are some styles that will stand the test of time.
If you’re looking for durable, high quality, good looking stylish jeans that you can wear to work or the club, look no further than Lucky. These hip but not hipster denim dominators have been in vogue for about 20 years. Men and women alike have looked to Lucky Jeans for status. They’re not AS pricey as they used to be, but still will cost you between 65-80 bucks. But they last.
They offer a variety of styles and colors so whatever you’re looking for, they’ve got it.
These are considered “luxury” denim jeans for all mankind. The price tag reflects it. I’d say these are for the more metro/hipster dude. But, if you want high-quality, long-lasting and good-looking jeans for the city, these are your go-to’s. Sevens carry with them a particular status array as well. But, they’re gonna cost you.
The gold standard of denim remains Levi’s. They make all the styles, fits, and washes and were the first to do so. You don’t have to shop only at boutique joints to find them and the price point has remained consistent for decades. They’re sturdy, a bit less malleable, but hold their color and wash for as long as you need. They may not carry the “status” of Lucky’s or 7’s, but you won’t get laughed out of the club, either. They trend more towards casual classy and can highlight cowboy boots or Johnston and Murphy cordovan ankle boots.
