Once the super-strong garment designed specifically for miners, cowboys and lumberjacks, jeans are now possibly the single most effective, iconic and popular piece of clothing available to men.
With a countless number of designs, fits and colours to choose from, the outfit opportunities are never-ending. Yet when striving for ultimate versatility – which in essence is what this article is all about – there is one style that caters for all occasions: slim, dark denim.
Why so? Slim-fit jeans are what you would call a happy medium: able to be incorporated into any outfit of your choice, smart or casual, without looking out of place. In comparison, wider fits naturally give off a more relaxed feel, which jars with tailored attire, while skinny cuts, due to their extremely tight fit, are an acquired taste and can easily throw out your outfit proportions.
