Core Slim Straight Fit Jeans
Citizens of Humanity
Sold by: East Dane

Fit Guide
These jeans exemplify the modern look of the season. The dark, clean wash lends a more sophisticated look to jeans, stepping them up from a weekend staple to a bottom that can be also be worn with sport coats and sweaters for a day at the office and a stylish dinner. The modern fit works on most gents, with an updated straight leg that is not too skinny – just slim enough to complete the polished and updated feel.

Gents, The New Jeans You Need for Fall

We love a good pair of jeans any time of year, but Fall is always the best time for a refresh. Like any staple in your wardrobe, staying up-to-date with colors and fits is important to keeping your look current and modern. You wouldn’t wear a super-wide tie when the trend is toward slimmer ones, and you want to have the same rule of thumb for your jeans. With sites that offer free shipping and easy/free returns (like we are sending you to), you have the luxury of trying a few on – at home, when you have time, and just returning the ones that don’t make the cut. With our edit, we’re going to narrow down the vast playing field for you.

Jeans with slimmer legs continue to be the look for the upcoming season. You don’t need to be a Brooklyn Hipster to pull this off. Just a couple inches of tapering in the legs, versus those older styles you might still have in your closet, is all the update you need. And in clean washes, and darker tones, this is a look that steps your denim up from Sunday afternoon errands to a casual day at the office and a night out. With denim being such a core piece of our wardrobes these days, this is a trend we stand behind for gents of every size and age. Beyond that, it’s all about the washes this season.

Take a look at our overview here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, for “Our Fall Denim Edit: Jeans That Make You Look & Feel Your Dapper Best”, where we guide you through the best jeans in each category. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

1. Mr. Clean. Since gents are wearing jeans in so many setting these days, from the office to a night out, it only makes sense that trends continue towards washes that give them an elevated, more polished feel. Raw denim (dark denim that basically hasn’t gone through the washing process after the fabric has been dyed) continues to look fresh. Clean, even washes that don’t have much distressing are becoming more and more prevalent, giving us more options for simple and sophisticated looks than ever before. And not only in jeans, as we’re showing you to the left and in Fashion Finds this week. Outerwear looks modern and fresh in a rich clean blue that captures this influence to perfection. W.R.K.’s a New York-based contemporary line that bridges “functionality with aesthetics” does just, updating a traditional construction work jacket with cool pocket and shoulder details, and a denim fabric that has a touch of stretch, so it’s comfortable -  not stiff looking. The best part is that the shade of blue can work with dark wash jeans, and of course any color twill or denim.

2. Vintage Treasures. On the more casual side of things, denim takes inspiration from the old humblebrag…”These old things? I’ve had them forever.” The truth is, denim manufacturers spend a lot of time hand-sanding and distressing jeans for the look that implies you’ve had them forever. But broken-in to such perfection, you’ll be happy the work’s been done for you. The Japanese denim of these Joe’s Jeans is meticulously hand sanded and whiskered to create that ideal wash – without going overboard to actual ripping and holes. The Brixton fit is modern with a slightly lower rise, and a trimmer, straight leg giving them the styling of an updated pair of jeans with the wash of something you’ve loved forever. They’ll quickly become your favorite casual staple.

3. Dark & Mysterious. It’s time to put away those colorful Summer pants, and turn to the rich deep tones of Fall. Deep greys, brown and black replace color for really easy-to-wear options that look great with all of the pattern button up shirts and sweaters of the season to come. Whether they are made of true denim, soft cotton twill, or corduroy, it covers all moody shades from charcoal to the deep jet black of these J Brand jeans. The soft cotton twill has a touch of stretch for comfort, but holds color really well so the black will stay rich and saturated, making these jeans a smart-looking update to flat front pants for a casual office day or an easy night out. Wear them with any dark shade - grey, olive, tan and dark brown – for a sophisticated look. The modern fit of this style sits a little lower at the waist and has a relaxed seat and thigh, but with a straight leg that keeps them looking updated and a great fit for any gent.

4. Refined Gentleman. Denim is not just in jeans. Spring brought us lightweight chambray shirts. For Fall, it gets even better. Shirts, outerwear, even sweaters use denim and denim inspiration for really masculine, updated looks. These days, fabric technology is so advanced, styles using denim have the same comfort and movement as any other fabrics. So you can feel good, and look even better. This modern fitting denim shirt from Bills Khaki uses such fabric, giving it an enzyme wash to create this Fall-ready medium blue wash. The button down collar adds to its classic look, so you can wear it to the office with khakis, and layer it under a sweater or tweed sport coat. It also looks so dapper with a pattern wool tie, playing up both textures for a great cold weather update to a basic blue shirt.
