Curated By Goodhood : Men's Denim Fit Guide

14 Nov 2017

 

SlIM

Slim denim is usually a slightly longer cut than others so that the extra fabric lies at the ankle, resting just above the shoe line. This season we have an ample selection of slim jeans, with washed and damaged denim from Indigofera, to ripped and patched denim from Junya Watanabe MAN and Unused.

    REGULAR

    A little more forgiving than the slim fit, the straight-leg fit is cut more or less the same all the way down, meaning the jeans tighter on the thighs but looser in the knees and calves. They're adaptable on the formality front, capable of being both dressed up and dressed down. We have straight denim from Levis Vintage Clothing and the killer Clovis silhouette from Kings Of Indigo.

      TAPERED

      One of the most dominant styles of the past five to ten years, tapered and carrot cut denim is worn on the hip and is slightly looser around the thigh, gently tapering down to the ankle. Totally rejected for the most part up until around 2008, skinny fitting jeans have become the norm from the high street to streetwear and high fashion. You can't go wrong with Norse Projects' tapered denim, Levis Vintage's classic 1954 501, the excellent John silhouette from Kings Of Indigo or YMC's all over star print jeans.

        LOOSE

        The roomiest of all the options, blessed with a fuller leg and waist. For them to look their best, the jeans should sit at or just below your natural waist, found right above your hips. The laid-back style are cut fuller from the thigh to the hem, allowing ample legroom for maximum comfort. Neighborhood denim are some of the best wide leg jeans available, alongside the stunning banner print 1937 501 denim from Levis Vintage Clothing.
