We’re going to finish off our look at different mens jeans for different body types by looking into some jeans for more stocky men. Now then, there is a temptation here to maybe go for tight fitting jeans to show off the muscular build. However, I would recommend steering clear of skinny mens jeans for this one. The purpose being is that there’s nothing to be gained by squeezing into skinny jeans when other jeans can likely work just as well. And there’s another reason.
Avoid Low Rise Men’s Jeans
Low rise jeans on someone of regular build can look good and they are certainly popular in the skinny jeans category. However, if you’re of a stocky build, I would urge you to avoid them. It’s important not to draw too much attention to your height and low rise jeans will certainly do that. So what would be best for you?
In our experience, we would recommend a set of mens jeans with a slightly wider fit. Look to comfortable, regular fit jeans. There’s no need to go for anything tighter and these will allow you maximum room, while being stylish.
We recommend: Wrangler Durable Jeans
Comfort is what Wrangler jeans do best. Their Texas Stretch ranger, the Arizona range, men’s Wrangler jeans epitomise style and comfort. We should also give a shout out to the Lee Brooklyn jeans we mentioned last week which were also strong candidates. However, to prove that you can get a great set of Wrangler jeans for under £30, we would recommend the Wrangler Durable jeans range. As far as men’s Wrangler jeans go, they’re up there with the best anyone can throw at you. They’re not necessarily going to match up with Wrangler’s other ranges but considering you can buy a pair for as little as £29.99 we think there’s not contest. Great Wrangler jeans, comfortable and stretchy for £29.99 (here at Jean Scene) who can ask for anything more?
We’ve covered a number of different body types in our posts about what styles of mens jeans are best for each individual body shape. We’ve recommended different styles and given our opinion on the matter. They are just suggestions, you can’t pigeon hole people. So whatever style you feel suits you is what’s best.
That being said, we’re going to continue our exploration of this idea by looking at the fuller gentleman. You can understand what I mean by that. So what style of denim would be best for these fellas?
Don’t Go Skinny
Well to start with I wouldn’t recommend skinny, tight jeans. We all know that they are considered very trendy and fashionable with a number of male celebs donning them on television and in glossy magazines. That being said, just because celebrities wear them doesn’t mean you should. What you should be looking for in your mens jeans is a more comfortable, relaxed fit. Something that provides that little bit of extra space and allows you comfort from your jeans. Obvious really, no point in squeezing yourself into tight jeans when these look better and wear better on you.
We recommend: Lee Brooklyn Comfort Jeans
There is a temptation in this scenario to duck this choice as there are so many great mens jeans that match this description. However, we’re opting for Lee Brooklyn Comfort jeans. Mens Lee jeans are stylish, easy to wear and are available at great prices that won’t break the bank. In terms of bang for book, Lee jeans are up there with Wrangler for providing top quality denim at a reasonable price. There are a number of mens Wrangler jeans that could also fit this bill but we like the blend offered by Lee Brooklyn jeans and for our purposes here, we think that their comfort jeans range is one of the best denims you can buy.
Continuing our look at denim jeans for men of varying body types, this time we will look at those men of a more athletic, muscular build. What sort of jeans are ideal for these men?
Now we’re not going as far as to suggest skinny jeans here, though I’m sure many men will go there. No, the men’s jeans we recommend for you are slim cut. A set of jeans that hug tight to those legs that you have spent year honing. The men’s jeans you need should flatter and draw attention to your defined shape. Teaming this with either a tight fitting t-shirt or maybe even a jumper in the colder months should suit you perfectly well. What brand of jeans do we recommend then in this case?
Men’s Lee Luke Jeans
There are a huge number of great brands that are available for people who are looking to buy slim fit jeans. In fact in all likely hood you’re going to be spoiled for choice. However, if we are going to recommend a set of slim cut men’s jeans, we are going to recommend you look at men’s Lee jeans. Specifically, we’re going to recommend the Lee Luke jeans. These jeans are great slim cut jeans, a great mix of style and comfort that works for anyone. However, for the more muscular man these jeans will suit you very well. They aren’t too tight, which means that while they will suit you perfectly, they aren’t uncomfortable like some slim men’s jeans can be. They’re available here for as little as £64.99, which is a great price for jeans of this high quality that look this good. Lee will even provide you with a great option to go with it, with a great range of shirts in various styles to compliment any look.
There are many different varieties of men in the world. Thankfully, there are just as many different types of mens jeans to choose from. So what are the best jeans to buy for you? Let’s look at men who are tall and thin to begin with.
One of the biggest mistakes that men who are tall and thin when it comes to choosing mens jeans is a preference for skinny jeans. These jeans can look great on some guys, but on guys who are particularly skinny, they emphasise that skinniness, making you look even smaller. None of this is an absolute as with all these reviews we are playing to an archetype. If you think you look good in ultra skinny jeans then don’t let us stop you from choosing those jeans. Generally speaking however, skinny jeans require a fuller leg in order to provide the maximum effect.
For you guys, we would recommend a set of straight leg. These jeans will look great on you and won’t accentuate the skinniness of your legs. In addition they tend to have a longer fit as well.
We recommend: Wrangler Texas Stretch
When it comes to regular, straight jeans, we can think of few jeans better than Wrangler Texas Stretch. They are the perfect mix of great quality and good looks at great value. Starting in at only £34.99 here at Jean Scene these jeans look good on pretty much any body type. However, if you’re looking for men’s jeans for a tall and thin man then they really are the way to go.
They come in a range of styles and are also made from a range of materials from corduroy to a more lightweight set of jeans. You can buy extra tough ones in their toughmax range or you can opt for water resistant pairs. The range of different styles is great and ideal for any tall and thin man.
Apple execs are becoming famed for the denim and plain shirt look. There are so many men’s jeans you can consider for the casual work look. Which pairs do we think are best? Let’s look at two of our favourite brands to discuss the idea.
Wrangler Texas Stretch
One of the most important things to consider when considering the mens jeans work look is why are you doing it? Because you want to be more comfortable. And no jeans are more comfortable for men than mens Wrangler jeans. Now these jeans need to maximise style and comfort, so we’re going to look at Wrangler Texas Stretch, best of both worlds.
A sober colour is important, so we recommend the Blue Black colour. Black jeans can look harsh, so a very dark blue (hence Blue Black) makes perfect sense. Combine this with what Wrangler are famed for in their comfortable, attractive look and you’re set. Team this with maybe a light blue or white shirt and you’re wet. It’s not likely to go with a red colour, but it will balance beautifully if you stick to these other colours.
Another great choice are Lee Jeans. They have similar properties to Wrangler in that they look and feel great. For this one however, I want to hold up a set of my favourite jeans, made from a more lightweight cotton.
I often get told that these aren’t really jeans, but this doesn’t worry me. They’re made by the same great company and the look and feel great. They look much more stylish than any set of jeans can and in the particular colour I’ve chosen, they could easily be confused for shirt trousers. But they are comfortable, attractive and more importantly great to wear for long periods.
But whatever your style, jeans and shirts are in and they are a welcome relief to all those shackled to desks!
Lee jeans are becoming more and more popular at the moment, particularly with men. The company has a phenomenal history of producing mens jeans and indeed mens Lee jeans are more and more favoured by those looking for a stylish set of mens jeans. There are a huge range of different styles of Lee jeans, covering all different styles of mens jeans. Since they moved away from producing work wear, Lee has firmly established itself as a main player in the mens denim fashion industry.
Lee have a whole host of different styles to choose from. Their range including Lee Brooklyn Stretch & Comfort, Lee Daren, Lee Luke and Lee Powell cover everything from regular and comfort fits right down to slim fit. They range is varied and also comes in a range of colours from sober dark blues and blacks to the more outlandish colours designed to grab attention and admiring glances.
The Lee Brooklyn Stretch range is straight Lee jeans classic. Available here for only £44.99 (bargain price) they cover everything you need to know about Lee jeans:
- The denim used to produce them is outstanding, as you would expect from a company with this level of heritage. When you buy Lee jeans, you know you are buying jeans that will cover you in every situation you can imagine.
- There is a range of colours and styles even here. You can choose a more traditional stonewash denim or you can have a lighter weight denim in red or green should that strike your fancy. There is even a corduroy option for that little bit of something different.
If Lee Brooklyn doesn’t strike you as being for you, try Lee Luke Slim Tapered fit. They slim fit jeans are just as comfortable and look fantastic. A worthy addition any go getters wardrobe.
This year has seen Mens Wrangler Jeans growing in popularity. Their range including Wrangler Texas Stretch, Durable and Arizona is becoming more and more popular. Indeed their first half of the year has seen sales grow and grow. Their rise this year doesn’t surprise fans of the brand, who are revelling in the renewed popularity of their favourite brand. So what happened?
Shift in Trends
It isn’t surprising to know that nothing is static in this world, and the flow of trends in mens fashion is shifting away from skinny jeans. The more regular fit offered by brands like Wrangler is growing in popularity. Their range of styles helps them to cover a broad spectrum of different denim styles, but their core range of mens jeans is being helped by the shift in trends.
Another thing that mens Wrangler jeans have going for them is great pricing. We looked here at Jean Scene’s Wrangler Jeans and with Texas Stretch from as little as £29.99 and other ranges including Wrangler Durable available at the same great prices, Wrangler has struck a great balance with price in the market.
On top of the price mens Wrangler jeans are also available in a huge range of great styles. We’ve spoken about Wrangler Texas Stretch and Wrangler Durable, but you can also get the Bootcut range of Wrangler Pittsboro and the skinny fit of the Wrangler Bostin. Wrangler has a style of jeans for every occasion, meaning whatever you’re looking for in mens jeans, Wrangler has something to suit you.
On top of all of the above, Wrangler does not scrimp on quality. A pair of mens Wrangler jeans comes with a seal of approval. These jeans are simply ideal for any man. They wear rough, they’re comfortable and they look brilliant. They have a number of unique design features aimed at both increasing comfort and durability. Mens jeans can do a lot worse than Wrangler jeans. If you would like a pair of mens Wrangler jeans, why not buy yours today at Jean Scene.
Mens fashion (including mens jeans) has a number of different influences. There are a whole variety of reasons why men wear different clothes. Because they are comfortable, because they are stylish, because such and such says they are fashionable and depending upon their outlook on sport, what their favourite footballers wear.
Footballers as fashion icons is nothing new. They are in the public eye day in and day out and have their style choices analysed and reviewed by everyone. So it should come as no shock the the choices of jeans that footballers wear is important. And this is most definitely not lost on those who make mens jeans. The above is a photo from an ad shoot involving the current Barcelona squad promoting Replay’s new Hyperflex range. Their status as global superstars makes them ideal as a marketing tool. However, surely one of the most marketable faces in world football has been, and probably always will be, David Beckham.
Beckham is one of the most iconic faces in world football. His glittering career and high profile marriage make him one of the most marketable commodities in the world. So naturally for anyone who was aware of world football from 1995 to 2010, Beckham is going to be a very noticeable face if he is seen wearing your brand.
So here is Becks in a set of Mens Wrangler Jeans and a Wrangler Denim shirt no less. Rocking the double denim look like very few can. His position as an icon will likely always have a positive spin on any brand he is associated with. That however is true for so many others.
Wrangler jeans are currently marketed in the US by two giants of American football in Brett Favre and Drew Brees. Same principle, different shaped ball. They are big marketing pulls for brands, including Wrangler jeans, to use to raise the profile of their products to the public.
So footballers across the globe affect our choices in mens jeans. What is your star wearing? Does it make you change your opinion? At the very least, it puts a brand name in your mind that might not have been there before. Which is exactly what manufacturers are looking for.
Welcome to Denim Hub. This site is aimed at advising you on all things Denim, though we do have a special leaning towards mens jeans in particular. Our posts will be your one stop shop for all things denim.
We love jeans and think that everyone else should love jeans too. Whether you’re looking for a trendy pair of designer jeans or simply want a pair that will be rugged and tough, Denim Hub can be your home to learn all you will need to know to make the right choice in mens jeans and more.
We’ve got our favourites and we’re sure you do too. What makes jeans special though is that there really is no wrong answer when it comes to denim. Mens jeans, womens jeans, it doesn’t matter who you’re buying for. Do you want to rock double denim? Fine. Do you want a set of jeans that just look like someone painted your legs blue? Fine. Denim is the best of us and the worst of us rolled into one. It’s our indulgences and vices, it’s our virtues and promise. Jeans maketh the man (and woman) so you know that they’re up there.
Now we also have our favourite places to buy jeans. And sure there’s plenty to be said for buying on the high street, getting them off the rail, feeling the material, trying them on. However, high street prices can be a bit high. And once you’ve been buying jeans long enough and you know what style feels good (or your boring and simply want regular fit jeans) then you can progress to buying online. We love Jean Scene for that. The price is right, the range is right and the price is right (did we mention that?) so you can find what you need. Additionally, with their free alteration service, they can help the jeans fit you just the way you want.
So, we will get on with writing about denim. You get on with enjoying wearing it.
