The back bone of every man's casual wardrobe.
A pair of denim jeans! Denim can be dressed up... dressed down... and worn to pretty much any event short of a black tie.
So why is it so hard to find a good fitting denim jean that will take you from Day to Night?
We are going to let you in on a little secret...
There’s no definitive answer to how jeans should fit, but the goal is to find something that balances out your proportions and highlights your best attributes. All too often, we’re being dictated by trends, what your friends are wearing, Instead of looking for jeans that suit your body shape.
Two most important features to get right:
- The fit
- The Rise
The fit or Shape of the denim:
Bootcut jeans are the perfect cut for any guy hoping to look for a casual look. This slim cut fits closely to the leg with a slight flare towards the leg opening. Bootcut jeans suit most body shapes, because they balance the body well.

Tommy Jeans - Ryan Sirrocco Bootcut by Hilfiger Jeans are super stretch denim jeans in a dark stone wash. The perfect Classic pair of denim jeans.
Skinny jeans are a risky bet for many men, but they have the potential to look really good on the right man. Best suited to a slim body frame. This tight fitting cut can make a slim man look ultra-trendy.
Mr. Hanley skinny fit recommendation:

Slim fit is by far the most popular. This cut of jean is tapered in a similar style to skinny jeans but not to the form-fitting extreme. With slim-fit jeans, you get the best of both worlds, fashionable and comfortable.

Straight-leg jeans are the most classic cut you’ll find. Neither tapered nor excessively loose, this conservative style is ideal for those who want their jeans to be simple and classic.
Mr. Hanley Straight fit recommendation:
Alberto - Jeans with a modern look. The super stretchy quality ensures maximum freedom of movement with optimal shape stability. Excellent wearing comfort for jeans that go well with well-groomed casual looks and casual job outfit.
Low-rise jeans have the smallest space between crotch and waist. This rise of jeans generally sits a few inches below the belly button, so make sure to wear a shirt of appropriate length to avoid exposing your midsection. Also keep in mind that low-rise jeans tend to fit tightly around the belly area, which may not be comfortable if you have a soft stomach.
If you don’t feel comfortable in the hip-hugging scoop of low-rise jeans but want to maintain a trendy look, think about medium-rise jeans. The room between waist and crotch on medium-rise jeans isn’t small, but it doesn’t extend to the rib cage, either.
High-waisted jeans are a terrific choice for heavier men with fuller stomachs. The rise is enough to conceal the extra pounds that would be exposed in low- and medium-rise jeans.
You can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans that fit you perfectly. Once you get fit and rise on point the rest is down to personal taste. Fabric, Stretch, and color. If you need any advice get contact with us on our live chat or any social media platforms. We are always happy to help.
