The modern man’s guide to dressing well every day

From super skinny to relaxed, there are now a number of jean fits to choose from but how do you find jeans to suit your body shape? We've pulled together a guide on getting to know the denim fits.

Denim jeans

Super skinny fit

Our super skinny jeans are perfect for those who like a tight fitting pair of jeans. Featuring a low rise waist and super skinny fit through the leg, the cut is modern and can work well with a tee or casual shirt. We've also added a stretch to the denim for extra comfort. Wear this fit if you're slim and lean. They're best avoided if you have athletic, big muscular legs or you're very top heavy with a broad chest and skinny legs.

Slim fit

The slim fit jean is one of the most versatile and classic pairs of jeans, meaning they're a perfect choice for almost every body type. Sitting lower on the waist and slim right through the leg, they offer a casual and comfortable look. And with plenty of options available including rigid denim and stretch denim, there's always a place for a slim fit pair of jeans in your denim inventory.

Straight fit

Straight fit jeans are an everyday wardrobe essential. Our straight fit jeans sit just below the waist and fit straight right through the leg down to the ankle opening, which is more generous than our skinny fit. The ideal fit for most body shapes, it's worth adding a pair to your collection. However, buy your denim with caution. If you're on the slim side, make sure the rise is not too high on your frame. On the other end of the scale? Be careful not to go for a size that's too snug.

Skinny fit

Our skinny fit jeans sit lower on the waist and skinny right through the leg. We've added stretch for extra comfort too. The guys who will really suit a skinny jean are slim or average built guys. If you're bigger but not top heavy you can also pull off a skinny jean. Skinny jeans are also low on the waist, skinny through the leg and feature a narrow leg opening.

Tapered slim fit

The tapered slim fit is a great cut if you're after something slightly fitted, comfortable and stylish. The leg narrows towards the ankle opening, and the jean has a lower rise and sits below the waist. This cool, casual fit is a winner for most body shapes. The gentle tapering at the ankle is not going to make any body part look out of proportion and the jeans fit true to most leg shapes with a bit of wiggle room, so they won't swamp your form or cling to your legs.
