Our Guide To The Perfect-Fit Jeans


As a guy, JEANS are the ultimate staple.
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...
Since you practically live in jeans, you need a pair that ticks all of the boxes: style, fit, & colour.
To help you on your hunt for the perfect pair, let's break down all of the typical styles:

1. The Skinny Jean

For a body confident guy who is willing to showcase his legs, a pair of skinny black jeans can be a valuable asset. Generally recommended for men who have a 32" waist and smaller. There is a common misconception that skinny jeans don't flatter men with short legs. However, the Enclothed team believes that the skinny jean actually elongates the leg.
Enclothed Recommends: For an on-trend modern appearance, team with a long sleeved t-shirt and a black leather jacket:


 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.

  Now that you know which style to go for, why not order it to your door?
