We’ve all heard about the “great silhouette shift”, but what does that mean for men’s jeans? Turns out there’s a wide variety of options for guys to consider! We’ve compiled an all-star list of the best men’s denim that 2022 has to offer. Check out our Men’s Denim Guide below.
Where are we seeing the trends?
A General Silhouette – The driving force behind modern denim is the oversized silhouette!
Puddle Pants Obsession – The modern jean often has extra length, which gives a puddle-effect where the sneaker breaks the jean.
A Shift in Color – Cream and Bone are THE color trends for jeans this season. We’re also seeing washed black jeans surpass the once-popular dark wash jean for workwear and street style.
