From its humble beginning in 1873 to 1950’s working men’s cloth to a style statement in our time, men’s jeans have travelled a long way. Any man who can own anything owns a pair of jeans. Men are love with his denim, and they can often be spotted in their favorite pair of jeans.
Although the fine (sometimes absurdly nuanced) differences of women’s jeans are not found in men’s wardrobe, men have a lot many jeans options to choose from, and when I say options I do not merely talk about colors, waste sizes, and fabrics, but I talk about cuts, pocket sizes, and other nuances which has long been used to describe women’s jeans. Let’s see 5 of the most commonly available jeans’ options for men.
5 Types of Mens jeans
Low rise jeans
These jeans sit below the hips. This type of jeans is very trendy and looks quite good on men, especially on short men. The waistline of a pair of low rise jeans is very low. Generally, low rise jeans sit 3 inches below the belly button.
Straight cut jeans
A pair of straight cut jeans sits at mens waistline, not an inch lower, and not a tad higher. This is a classic style of jeans. It can be worn with anything. This is one of the styles that suits men of short height, particularly well.
Boot cut jeans
Boot cut jeans was originally meant to be worn with cowboy boots. The style of jeans is similar to the strait cut jeans but has some flare around ankle. It sits nicely around the natural waistline of men. Boot cut jeans tend to be slightly loose through the leg, and get starts flaring up at I goes downward from knees to ankle.
Tapered jeans are not as popular among men as they are among women. This style of jeans sit slightly above (or about) mens natural waistline. It is slimmer at the ankle and gets slightly tighter as it goes down. This style of jeans is famous with short men as it makes the legs appear longer.
Slim fit jeans
Slim fit style of jeans makes short men look a little taller. It fits snugly through the leg. If you feel comfortable in a pair of tight-fitting jeans then this is a nice cut for you. Slim fit jeans come with a small leg opening. This cut is particularly famous with women.
When buying jeans, one need to take into account ones height, weight, and comfort level. Jeans is not something that you can buy off the shelf, and put on without in-store trial. The best way to buy mens jeans is to try different cuts in the store and take a brief walk in each of the cuts to see your comfort level before buying one.
