How to pick the right jeans for your body shape

22 February 2018



You can own piles of the most stylish clothing in the world, but if they don’t fit you properly, your entire look is going to be thrown off. When it comes to jeans, the most important thing to get right is to pick the right pair for your body shape. No more trying to fit into something just because it’s on-trend... So, without further ado, here is our simple guide to make sure you’re never compromising your personal style.




SHOP ALL JEANS

Slim build



If you’re slim, you’re going to want to accentuate what you have by flattering your body shape, so pick a skinny or slim fit and steer clear of looser styles to avoid swamping your body. Balance out the slimmer jeans with a looser knit or sweatshirt to keep everything in proportion.

Athletic



If you’re on the muscular side, we appreciate that you’re going to want to show off your gym work, but there’s a very fine line that you absolutely do not want to cross. Picking something super skinny is going to do you no favours, so opt for either a normal skinny or a slim fit that has a bit of stretch in it. Our best advice? Opt for anything from our Ultra Flex range to keep movement at its peak...

Shorter



If you’re looking to lengthen your body, always opt for a darker denim for optimum flattery. A tapered jean is a great option: it will always flatter the wearer and make him appear taller than he actually is. Skinnies have the tendency to make you look smaller than you actually are, so opt for slim-fit instead. Remember that you always have the option of getting jeans altered to fit you, too.

Taller



Taller gentlemen can often find it hard to pick the right jeans, but again opting for a darker blue or black is a brilliant way to keep your outfit in proportion. If you’ve been blessed in the height department, you’re going to want to avoid anything either too slim or too loose – neither of which are going to flatter you. Instead, go for a classic straight leg to keep the outfit balanced. We’ve got an entire collection of jeans specifically designed for taller gentlemen, so take your pick.
