Gent’s Guide to the Top 5 Jeans Trends for Fall

We all feel a little down when Labor Day weekend comes to a close. It’s the mark that summer is over. But at least we have new fall must-see TV, good peaty scotch, the remainder of the baseball season, and fall clothes to lift our spirits. Yup, we said it. We like to get ready for fall with some new clothes. No surprise coming from us, Mark Shale, But it reminds us of that exciting feeling of going back to school. We love it. And one of the most versatile pieces in our wardrobes is our jeans. From dark to distressed, fall is full of some great must-haves. We’ve broken the top 5 trends down in our Clothes & Conversation Summer’s Over, the Good News…Jeans are Here this week.
Have a better idea of what you’re now looking for now? Here are a few options 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. We hope you had a great holiday, or are still enjoying it.

In today's "casualized" world, jeans are the core pant in a guy's wardrobe. Finding the right fit and wash can be a challenge. This Citizens of Humanity jean, for example, is a perfectly modern fit with narrower, straight legs and rise that hits just at your navel. There is still plenty of room in the seat and thighs. The raw denim is just that – raw, so it is unwashed to retain the original rinse color. They have that “new” look to them (and break in beautifully over time through wear and washings), which can easily dress up any outfit.

1. Perfectly Broken-In : These 7 For All Mankind jeans are exactly what we mean when we’re talking about broken-in. The lighter wash and whiskering is casual, but the fit is slimmer, with the leg tapering below the knee to create the narrower look. This keeps these jeans looking cooly casual, not at all messy. Throw on these Converse sneakers, a t-shirt and you are ready for any day of good fun.

The stretch fabric of these jeans has been washed and sanded to look and feel like you’ve worn them for years. Thanks, AG, for doing all the hard work. All you have to do is put on these contemporary, but universal, fitting jeans – they look great on most gents, with the easier waist and tapered leg. For a weekend casual look, add this modern button collar shirt and tan oxfords.

These jeans have a classic, straight fit that is nice and easy for anyone. And then Agave spiced them up by taking an indigo/brown Japanese fabric, hand-sanding and stonewashing them, to create a worn-in darker blue shade. They give the broken-in style a modern feel that can easily be dressed up for fall with a casual navy blazer (we are seriously into its zip out bib) and a check pattern shirt.

2. Straight & Slim: The epitome of cool, these straight leg, contemporary fitting J Brand jeans are in a versatile medium, but lightly distressed, wash. They even have a bit of stretch to them. These will be your “go-to” jeans for almost every occasion. For a casual look, go with this double-faced t-shirt (the quality is amazing) and a white sneaker, like in the picture. Dress them up with these chukkas and your favorite button-down shirt.

If you are looking for a darker wash that will take you everywhere (and if you weren’t, you really should be), your search ends here with these Citizens of Humanity straight leg jeans. Some blue washes have a grey or black tint. This is the perfect true blue. The fit is slim and the leg is narrow with a slight tapper. Wear them with this Billy Reid check shirt for polished casual look.

There are certainly a lot of fashion forward interpretations of a slim silhouette, and trendy is not really our style. But this fashionable option from AG Jeans has us sold. The lightweight Japanese fabric is a timeless blue, but they have a matte coating for a truly dapper finish. They do have some stretch to them, so don’t let the coating deter you. If you’re heading to a new restaurant or bar, these will look great with these chukka boots and Vince’s mini check shirt.

This Agave straight leg style in a faded blue wash is a great Saturday jean. Clearly, the color lends itself to weekend casual. And the fit is classic and comfortable. The best part? The hand sanded and stone washed Japanese denim because it is seriously soft. Add a white t-shirt and a zip hoodie for a day full of errands or just lounging at home.

3. Raw Denim/Selvedge: Selvedge denim is typically known to be in a darker wash. We are seriously into this unique take from Joe’s Jeans done in this lighter blue Japanese denim. It’s so polished and modern, yet not overly fashionable. When the weather cools, wear with this frost color Vince crew neck sweater  and John Varvatos black sneakers.

This selvedge denim from AG Jeans has a dark indigo wash that easily dresses up in it’s tapered leg and tailored fit. These look great with a small cuff to show off the contrast and detail of this denim. Keep it sophisticated with a darker patterned shirt  and a clean black leather belt in a modern 1-inch width.  Add a black or navy cashmere blazer to further elevate this look.

From Agave, these selvedge denim jeans are the real deal. The fabric is woven on vintage shuttle looms and uses the dye from a raw indigo plant. The fit is classic with room in the seat and thigh if you prefer a roomier pair of jeans – an especially nice touch for a raw denim style. The white bonded fabric detail on the coin pocket and seams highlight the high quality. These are worth every penny and will evolve over the years. If you are wondering what shoes to wear with dark raw denim, we like a black chukka style shoe (that’s an ankle high shoe, generally with two pair of eyelets).

J.Crew painstakingly designed this Wallace & Barnes selvedge jean to cover any and every detail we could want. The fabric is from Cone Mills, one of America’s oldest and finest denim mills. Cone used an authentic fly-shuttle loom to weave the fabric and create this rich and dark color. Click through the “shop it” button to get a better look at the amazing detail. The fit is trim with a narrow leg, and dresses up for a night out with this Hugo Boss plaid shirt and travel blazer, a really cool take on a blazer that’s actually functional for the weather.

4. Grey: We really like the shadow grey wash of these Hudson jeans – the stretch fabric is a deep charcoal with just the slightest fade. While the clean wash can be dressed up, we like these jeans with a cool flannel plaid shirt  and black canvas sneakers.

These faded grey jeans from AG Jeans are great for weekends and daytime casual. The Protégé model is AG’s classic straight leg fit. It is perfect for gents who want a more modern look but not a trim fit. For an office casual look, try them with a black quarter zip cotton sweater and a Tattersall pattern shirt.

We are pretty enamored with the interesting grey wash of these John Varvatos Star USA jeans. The fit is trim and the leg is straight. Cool, retro sneakers and a charcoal light weight merino wool sweater complete the look.

From Agave, these straight leg and classic fitting jeans have a 4-way stretch for extra comfort. And it gets better. The fabric is hand sanded and stone washed to create a vintage grey fade. Add this black quilted vest over a heather blue crewneck sweater  for a great fall look.

5. Black: Agave has the some of the best black washes around, as clearly proven with this pair of jeans. The color is great – black but not a saturated black. The fit is classic with a straight leg, good for gents looking for a modern but not slim fit. They look great with this Robert Graham checked shirt.

This jet-black pair of jeans from Hudson have a button fly and just the right amount of stretch. It’s a contemporary slimmer fit with a straight leg. The dark even wash works easily with any pop of color, in a plaid shirt or a classic shetland wool sweater.

Sometimes you want something with just a little more character. And for that, we turn to these distressed black jeans from Citizens of Humanity. The whiskering and fading on the thigh and knees add a perfect worn-in look to the black wash. Add a little color with this Burberry checked button up shirt  and this Hugo Boss bomber jacket – perfect for fall.

For gents looking for a just slightly higher rise in their jeans, but still want the modern look of a straight leg that is not too narrow, these black jeans from Heritage 34 are for you. The fabric has 2% stretch for added comfort. Heritage 34 has developed a loyal following for gents who want good-looking jeans with a touch higher rise. We like them with this clean Bengal stripe shirt from Peter Millar.
