Wearing jeans that fit closely looks great, but second-skin denim isn’t necessarily the most comfortable or flattering cut to pull off. The good news is we’ve beefed up our offering of quality jeans in a straight fit, and the style is fast becoming a genuine contender for the crown of its crotch-hugging brother, the ubiquitous skinny.
Not only does a straight fit give you more room to breathe and move, it allows you to do so in style. They’re still cut close enough at the thighs not to appear baggy, like skater jeans, but the looser fabric at the knee and down the calf means they look nicely relaxed and lived-in.
Channel your inner sartorially-aware woodsman by wearing yours with a pair of hefty boots, an oversized T-shirt and an autumn-appropriate lumberjack shirt. Or turn them up at the bottom, throw on a pair of slip-on Vans or smart plimsolls and an oversized T-shirt, and embrace the art student vibe. Either way, it’s a comfortable and on-trend way to stand-out from the skinny-fit hordes.
