Spring’s 5 Must-Have Jeans Trends: Our Gents’ Top Picks

This week, we’re focusing on jeans. A fresh update, even if you already have some favorites, keeps you – and your wardrobe - modern and rejuvenated. They are one of the most versatile pieces in our wardrobe, and this season, truer words could not be spoken. From dark denim to soft twills, we’ve broken the top 5 trends down in this week's Clothes & Conversation, “Gents, Breaking Down Spring’s Top 5 Jeans Trends” .
Have a better idea of what you’re now looking for now? Here are our top picks for each trend. Choose the one (or two, or three) that works best for you. And let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media. Remember, whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

There are so many things about these J Brand jeans that make them a top pick for spring. The jean styling is still the core silhouette in every gent’s wardrobe but the addition of colors other than blue denim gives you so many more options. The washed bristle blue is such a wearable color – not flashy, and a nice change from the usual tans and greys. The twill has a bit of stretch and lots of soft comfort. Wear this new blue shade with a white linen or oxford cloth button up shirt to the office or out to dinner. On the weekends, wear with a white or heathered grey t-shirt or polo shirt. The Tyler model is a universal fit that looks great on most everyone.

1. Broken-in Distressing. As we talked about in Clothes & Conversation, getting the right wash to look casually broken-in and natural is key. Joe’s has done it right with this style, stonewashing (not ‘80’s stonewash, this is the process to distress them) the denim until it reaches the perfectly worn medium blue hue. It is then sanded to get those perfect whiskers at the knees and hips. In one of their most popular fits, Brixton, the modern fit is relaxed yet trim, so these jeans will look casual without looking sloppy.

For the classic gent that prefers an easier, modern fit – and looking good - this pair of Agave jeans are for you. The medium rise and straight leg are comfortable, and the high quality Japanese denim is lightweight, stonewashed, and hand sanded to perfection. They work with every casual polo, t-shirt, and patterned shirt in your closet – and every casual shoe from sneakers to a sporty brogue.

This 100% cotton denim was custom developed by Levi’s, as part of their elevated Made & Crafted line – and as the original creator of jeans, that certainly says something about the quality. These jeans are washed and hand finished to get that ideal worn-in look, with well-placed whiskering details. They have a contemporary fit, with a slightly tapered leg - so on target for this summer’s feel of timeless chic leisure, and a nice match to a pair of converse sneakers or flip flops.

For a truly worn-in look, Citizens of Humanity did it right with this one. The Italian cotton denim stonewash (again, not ‘80’s stonewash, just the high-end distressing technique) and lasered whiskering result in a light blue finish with great fading details. The paler color is great for the warmer months, with a pair of white, off-white or black sneakers. These are the Sid model - one of Citizen’s most popular, for its universally flattering modern fit that is updated without being skinny.

2. Raw/Selvedge Denim. Bonobos, known for their origins in amazing fitting pants, not surprisingly, comes through with some equally amazing jeans. One of the best things about them is that they come in more than 1 fit, so every gent can wear them in comfort and style. We recommend the Slim for gents who prefer a contemporary fit, and Straight for a classic, yet modern, fit. They use Cone Denim fabric, with just a hint of stretch, from the famous North Carolina mill, and manage to keep the price low at the same time. These are great for a casual workday or a night out, with a blazer and sport shirt. They can also dress up any t-shirt effortlessly.

If you prefer a more relaxed gentleman’s fit, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have an updated pair of jeans in the dark, raw denim look – and Tommy Bahama ensures that. The lightweight fabric is a blend of cotton and Tencel® with a touch of stretch, so they are extremely comfortable and provide the new “dress pant” look for today’s casually dapper world. You’ll get tons of use out of them, especially in the more stress-free warm weather months, with a sport shirt or polo for an easy night out.

From Rag & Bone’s Standard Issue line, which is all about the staples in our wardrobes, these jeans are made of 100 % raw selvedge denim. So that means they look great, and will look even better as you break them in with wear. We like to wear them with a small cuff, as shown, to show off the white trim of the selvedge finish (proof that these are high quality and just plain cool-looking). The contemporary fit isn’t too skinny, but has a sleek look that we love to pair with a crisp white shirt for spring. Of course, you can pair them with most shirts and blazers in your wardrobe, so you’ll get plenty of use out of them – and plenty of opportunities to break them in.

These dark indigo 7 For All Mankind jeans are perfect for 2 types of gents: 1. Thin, even lanky, gents who have trouble finding jeans that look updated and trim, not overwhelming you with leg fabric; 2. Gents looking for a true skinny, ready to embrace the fashion forward silhouette. For both groups, these skinny jeans are our top pick. When wearing a more fitted pair of pants, we like it best in a dark wash – keeping the look dapper and modern, without feeling too trendy. The can dress up and down with ease, and go with every shirt and shoe in your closet. Note: As with all indigo rinse jeans, wash them a couple of times before you wear them to set the rinse and avoid any transfer of the indigo color.

3. White. As we talked about in Clothes & Conversation this week, when white is THE color of the season, white jeans are an easy way to give your wardrobe an update. AG’s best selling Protégé model has a classic fit that looks great on most gents. And the straight leg and not too fitted shape really plays well in to the color. Treat them like any blue denim, and wear them with anything. They can dress up a simple t-shirt for an easy brunch, or contrast a patterned button up shirt for dinner.

Joe's Jeans - Stay Spotless Straight Leg Classic Jeans
Think your bad track record for spilling food and drinks means white isn’t for you? This pair of Joe’s makes that a non-issue. Sounds crazy, but it’s true. Their new Stay Spotless collection uses an innovative treatment that literally repels all those common day spills – coffee, wine, soda. It really works, we’ve done the spilling ourselves. And yet, the treatment doesn’t affect the feel of the fabric – they are super soft, and have some nice stretch to them. We’re featuring the modern fit with the straight leg, which works on every gent, but if you prefer a contemporary fit, they’ve got that, too.

J Brand’s best selling silhouette, Kane, looks great in white. It is modern with a trimmer silhouette and straight leg and the soft twill denim has a touch of stretch for added comfort. For a casual office day, wear them with a geometric pattern button up shirt and a grey suede chukka boot.

Not only are Bonobos’ indigo denim jeans one of our top picks, so are their white ones. Like the dark wash, these are from North Carolina’s Cone Mill, which produces premium denim for many high-end brands. And like the dark denim, they come in several fits, so every gent can look great in these white jeans. We recommend the Slim for gents who prefer a contemporary fit, and Straight for a classic, yet modern, fit. The quality and fit look great, and the price will make you feel just as good.

4. Color. Color punches up our spring and summer wardrobes, and finding the right fits and shades for jeans can be tricky. But these light blue J Brands get it just right. The modern interpretation of fleet blue not only showcases the importance and timeless quality of blue, but it does it in way that is masculine and stylish, a perfect place to dip your toe in this season’s pool of color. The cotton stretch twill jean is garment dyed to give it a saturated color, and the contemporary fit looks polished with a white oxford cloth button up shirt and stylish grey wingtips.

Gents on every level of the style spectrum can easily incorporate some neutral color into their summer jeans with this dark tan (the color is “rust” through the ‘shop it’ button) pick from Peter Millar. The twill fabric is garment dyed to produce a rich overall color and the cotton has a sateen finish, which just means they are incredibly soft and not too heavy – perfect for the warmer weather.

34 Heritage - Charisma - Chevron Classic Relaxed Fit Jeans
For a relaxed gentleman’s fit that is loaded with style, 34 Heritage has found a unique way to dress up a basic pair of brown jeans by incorporating a subtle chevron pattern into the stretch denim. It not only dresses them up a bit for a casual day at the office or dinner, but it makes the basic brown summer-ready because it uses a lighter shade of brown in the pattern. Add a cotton navy sweater or blazer and a brown chukka boot or oxford to complete the look.

Grey remains an important menswear color, and this shade is spring ready in a lighter hue that isn’t too light – the perfect base color for anything from a white t-shirt or polo and white sneakers to a linen button down with a pop of color. The Japanese denim is resin rinsed with slight whiskering to create a worn-in look so they don’t look stiff. This is the Standard fit, which is a great “everyman” fit. But they do come in a contemporary fit if you are looking for something a bit trimmer.

5. Not Just Jeans. Denim is great for shorts, too – but don’t get us wrong. We’re not suggesting you whip out your denim rolled up shorts from the ‘80’s. Keep those in your memories and evolve your shorts collection with this Hugo Boss pick. They have the versatility of denim with all the comfort of the lightweight cotton they are made out of. The white tipping and trouser pockets give them a dapper polish, perfect for brunch or any weekend event. We really like pairing them with a white linen shirt and canvas slip-ons  but they look just as good with a simple t-shirt or polo in any color.

A denim inspired t-shirt is a great item for your wardrobe – it’s just as versatile as a pair of jeans. Agave’s cotton/tencel slub material and enzyme wash is really soft and creates the perfect texture to mimic the color variation that makes denim so inviting. The fit is modern and great for most gents. Wear it with your white, tan or black twill pants, shorts, or sweats. There’s tons of versatility and quality in this simple t-shirt.

This dark indigo color shirt from Hugo Boss is a modern way to play with chambray, denim’s sophisticated brother. It will take you to the office and your after 5 events in style, especially with the subtle pop of deep purple in the collar and cuffs. The fit is contemporary, so it looks polished with a dark navy blazer for work. After 5, it is great with your new dark, raw jeans.

Even ties get in on the action this season.

It’s slim width is modern and will dress up any white shirt and tan linen or cotton pants – it will even work with a summer weight tan suit.
