Straight talk on men’s straight fit jeans
Men’s straight jeans look great on most guys’ physiques because they skim the body without clinging and are roomy enough to keep from pulling or pinching. Straight-cut jeans are the ultimate, classic, denim jeans, and they are tailored to go with everything from a tee-shirt for work or school to a dress shirt, blazer and tie for those times when you want to look more formal.
The classic good looks of a straight fit means that these jeans never go out of style. Skinnies and flares may wax and wane in popularity each decade, but the straight-fit jean is always one of the top jean styles.
The key to wearing straight-fit jeans is to make sure there’s no pulling in the thigh or butt area. Runners and lifters may develop musculature that will not fit into the classic style of straight-cut jeans and may be better off with a relaxed fit.
When it comes to straight denim jeans, choose a mid-rise. Mid-rise jeans should sit an inch below your waist or at the level or your belly button. The leg should be slightly tapered from thigh to ankle but never approach being tight.
Once you find your favourite pair of straight, denim jeans, buy two pairs so you can switch off.
You can roll or cuff straight-cut jeans or let them bunch at the ankle, but never wear any uncuffed jeans that end above the ankle bone.
Dark washes like a deep indigo look more formal than lighter washes.
Classic jeans can be worn with your choice of footwear as everything looks good with these jeans. Boots, flip-flops, tie-shoes, high-tops all look great with straight-cut jeans.
Men’s straight-fit jeans are often coveted by girlfriends and sisters, so look out! The boyfriend-style jean, that many young women love, is actually an imitation of a traditional, straight-fit men’s jean.
