This classic fit always works — regardless of waist size or shape — and looks snappy.
For physical activity, opt for loose fit jeans more generously cut through the waist and legs, allowing unrestricted movement. You also want heavier denim that resists punctures and tearing. A dark color is also preferable, which masks stains and dirt better. For a business casual look, choose a more traditional straight cut. These are closest to the cut of dress pants and are a classic style that pairs well with dress shoes and a dress shirt.
Straight cut jeans for men are trimmer through the seat and legs, yet not restrictive. They're designed for outdoor use and feature rugged materials, like wool or reinforced straw.
Most have slim-wire edges at the brims to help the hats retain their floppy shape without drooping too much. Men's Regular Fit Jean. Men's Slim Fit Jean. Men's Original-Fit Jean.

Previous Page 1 2 Different styles of men's jeans Whether for their durability or their casual style, the right cut plays a key role in your comfort. Straight cut For a business casual look, choose a more traditional straight cut. Skinny fit Floppy hats have brims that are over four inches wide to offer maximum protection from the sun. They may say regular, classic, relaxed or athletic but are still straight, only with a fuller cut through the seat and legs and some stretch for ease.
Slouchy legs are fine, but skip anything too saggy, baggy or stiff like raw denim. Consider pairing them with untucked button-downs and tees for extra tummy coverage, and add a jacket to up your style game. Medium- to dark-blue and black denim are dressier than light faded jeans for a professional, businesslike or more polished look, day or night. Just add a tailored blazer or vest, a crisp button-down, and ankle boots or loafers. While dark, even washes have their own appeal, so do vintage washes.
Forget rips and tears and go for broken-in, light to medium blues that look like you've had them for years. They may have been stonewashed or sanded slightly at the seams, knees and thighs during processing to get that exact effect. Keep the style straight and otherwise classic — no flares, bell-bottoms or boot cuts — and add in a leather jacket and your favorite tees, flannel shirts and sweaters like Bruce Willis. This is where it is easy to really mess up. How jeans "break" — where your pants hit the top of your shoe — has changed and there are options.
If you're a traditional conservative kind of guy, get your straight jeans tailored to a half-break so they break and crease in front and fall pretty straight to mid-heel in back. And if you're a laid-back gent, casual and cool like Antonio Banderas, let them drape and stack up in a loose fall on the way down before fully breaking front and back.
Just be aware that too much width and excess fabric bunching up at the ankles looks too long, careless and sloppy. If you're hipster edgy, a half inch to an inch double mini roll looks stylish the way Jeff Goldblum does it. The "Canadian tuxedo" — doubling up denim on top and bottom — has gone from a sometimes trend to a forever "do.
Experiment by pairing old with new and shade differences or even black jeans with a blue jeans jacket. Keep your jeans look personal and updated with tops and footwear like Tom Cruise. Your favorite jeans can go rugged and sporty with a T-shirt, hoodie and sneakers; edgy by adding a black tee, leather jacket and black Chelsea boots; polished by doing a blazer, button-down shirt and lace-ups or loafers.
Keep tees relaxed, not tight, and try half-tucking the front as you layer for less bulk at the waist. Tone jeans to tops and shoes for a longer, taller, sleeker illusion, and add a pop of color with a scarf, shirt or whimsical socks.
