Jeans for Men

One should choose the style that best describes their personality. No doubt the classic jeans always give a great look, provided they have proper fitting.

Baggy Jeans

Loose fits are neither baggy nor tight fit; they are somewhere between the two patterns. Such a pattern is not suited for short men because it makes them look shorter.

Boot Cut Jeans

As the name suggests, these are specially designed to wear along with boots. The material is a bit tight around the thighs to give a slimmer look. The end of the leg length flares out. Do not confuse these with flare cuts, because boot cuts are tapered to the knee, and slim at the thigh.
