Our Guide To The Perfect-Fit Jeans
Whether you're heading on a night out with friends, out and about exploring at the weekend, or your office is on board with 'casual Fridays', jeans are the common DENIMinator...
1. The Skinny Jean
2. The Slim Jean
If you have a slightly stockier build but still want to achieve a fitted look, the slim jean is the option for you. They still hug your thighs and knees, but start to loosen up around the calves. If you're a fan of a blue wash, these are much more flattering in blue than the skinny jean. Slim jeans are ideal for relaxed activities, yet still tailored enough to wear to a more formal occasion in a black wash. In terms of fit, men tend to pick up a size too big... You shouldn't be able to put more than two fingers in the waistband.
Enclothed Recommends: A '511' fit if you're a fan of Levi's.
3. The Straight Jean
The straight jean is a classic. Although straight jeans are considered to be slightly less fashionable by some, we think they can look just as stylish if you get the right fit (same rules apply - do the 2 finger in the waistband test). If you're not as keen to showcase your legs, these are great at concealing any areas you don't want to emphasise. Blue or black, this shape is great for a simple, neutral look.
Enclothed Recommends: To balance out the looser fit, wear with a more structured t-shirt or jumper.
