My ‘boyfriend’ jeans are more than willing to spend the entire day with me doing the things I like. In fact, after a day of running around the city or sitting in the park, they look and feel better because of it.
Slouchy, comfy, yet flattering ‘boyfriends’ can become a little bit of a quest to find. Well, you don’t have to wait your whole life for that cosmic denim love. Anyone can meet the perfect fit, as long as you know what to look for:
- Low rise
- A longer yoke in the back
- Bigger and/or lower back pockets
- A slim, tapered leg
- Fading or distressing
- Take advantage of a trend
There are a lot of brands out there that have adapted ‘boyfriends’ just for you.
Levi’s Made & Crafted : Marker
Tellason : Bird
Baldwin : Andi
- Have some unisex
When it comes to “who wears what”, Nudie and APC are two brands that remain neutral. Both have raw (unwashed) options, which allow you to work them in yourself!
Nudie: Thin Finn in Organic Blue Strike
APC: Petite Standard
- Beware of baggage:
Too much bagginess can look sloppy. Find a flattering relaxed leg by wearing a men’s skinny or slim. Think Winona Ryder in Reality Bites.
Naked & Famous: Super Skinny Guy in Stretch Selvedge
Neuw : Iggy in Raw Stretch
Scotch & Soda : Ralston in Lot. 22 Drive By
Now go ahead and find your denim match!
