When it comes to buying cloths for work, it is possible to tailor your outfit to meet the demands of almost any job or environment. Knowing how materials perform in various conditions is important to ensuring that you end up with the perfect combination of fibers for the environment you find yourself working in. The following workwear tips should help to clarify what materials you can choose from as well as the properties they provide to the garments they are used to make.
Cotton is popular because it is light, durable, and breathes (allows moisture to move away from the body). The term “duck” refers to the way in which the cotton is woven. Cotton duck fabric is exceptionally durable (it was once used for ship sails), second only to leather in its ability to block wind, and one of the softer fabrics used in workwear (it gets softer with washing).
You may think of men’s jeans as a most classic, unchanging piece of clothing. Yet, the subtle changes this may involve lead to great effects – think about what happens with butterflies. Although less obvious, there are successive trends in men’s jeans as well. What do we have in store for this fall season then?
The denim pieces to be worn this fall are narrow and straight mostly, but not skinny. It may sound more like the classic cut, but it still keeps the grunge streak, especially since we have various washes combined together. As for the length, anything goes from traditional to shortened. It is adjustable, so anyone should feel free to shorten the jeans and wrap them up as desired and as required by their height. Trim them as you wish, it will certainly not look awkward for the coming months. In any case, any nice pair of slim jeans would go with a Concept Clothing shirt; heck, any nice pair would even go with a Maison Martin Margiela t-shirt, which aren’t exactly the friendliest shirts in the world (see below!).
Color-wise, the gray shades are back in the business. Blue, black and beige stay in, but in darker washes. Prints are also allowed, continuing the spring and summer trend. Moschino and Versace have gone to a great extent in printing the jeans for fall 2013, using abstract or graffiti-like patterns. If colored is not your type, the regular distressed, medium-wash denim is a safe option and will be seen in most stores.
Visual textures will be a highlight of the season. As in Diesel look book and not only, the coating has become an essential part: you can have jeans with a wet surface look or a texture that resembles leather. Fall 2013 comes with more masculine and complimenting jeans trends.
The Brokn Legend brand of men’s hats has the belief that hats are more than just a man’s accessory, they are a “companion on his journey” through life. The cap style hats are constructed of high quality indigo denim fabric and have a “Vintage” look about them with the distressed brim and cap, which makes them look like they has been with you a long time, even though the hats may be new to you. The Vintage style patches that are applied to the crown of the cap remind me of the different patches that used to be collected years ago and sewn by hand to clothing. They usually meant something to the wearer, like a state that you had travelled to or to mark a special event in your life.
When you think of blue jeans, you probably can’t remember a time when they were not part of your wardrobe. Since the first jeans were brought to market in the 1800’s by Levi Strauss, they have evolved in style. One such product of the jean evolution has been the cut-off jeans.
Each season seems to bring slightly new or unique pieces of clothing to collections and although with denim the wheel doesn’t need to be reinvented, sometimes it’s nice to see something just a little bit different than your old standbys. If you’re searching for some fresh denim choices to transition into your closet, Levi’s jeans for men will have you covered. With both new styles and colors, they always have an option to match your own style and personal preferences. Whether you want to buy Levi’s jeans in New York, or are just searching online for a new pair, Dave’s New York certainly has you covered. Check out these three new options from Levi’s:
501 Shrink to Fit in Chalk Blue
This limited edition Levi’s 501 shrink to fit jean comes in a lighter-weight 10-ounce denim, making it a great option for the warm weather seasons. As can be assumed by the name, Levi’s shrink to fit jeans shrink when washed, so they should be bought a bit larger than what actually fits. For sizing purposes, if your waist is 27” to 36” add 1” to your waist size. If your waist is 38” to 46” then add 2” to your waist size. In regards to length, add 3” if your length is 26” to 34” and add 4” for lengths of 36” or higher. For jeans in New York, Dave’s New York has the perfect options.

For a bolder look, try the Levi’s 501 Shrink to Fit in Mineral Red. Sized in the same fashion as mentioned above, both of these jeans have a classic, straight leg fit, with a 17” leg opening.

When the winter brings in the bitter cold weather, the type of jeans that you choose can be the difference between being warm and dry or feeling like a popsicle. The things that you want to take into consideration are the materials and the fit.
In choosing a pair of jeans that is “cold proof”, you want to select one that has heavier feeling denim. The heavier the denim, the less likely it will be that the wind and cold will be able to penetrate through your pants. Fortunately, there are online clothing retailers, e.g. Jonathan Trumbull, that understand this need and can accommodate us gents with reasonable prices.
One great example of heavyweight 100% cotton jeans for men readily available for online purchase are the Loose Fit Five-Pocket Jeans by Eddie Bauer. They are constructed in traditional jean styling, but are made of 13.5 ounce cotton denim. If you are looking for something that has a little more insulation, Eddie Bauer also makes a classic and relaxed fit flannel lined jean for the same price.
The second thing that you need to consider in selecting the right jean for winter is the fit. When your trousers are a little on the looser side around the thighs and the calves, there is a small pocket of air between your skin and the material. This pocket of air is heated by the temperature of your body and serves as insulation between you and the jean, so even though the jean itself will be cold from the outside, it will feel warmer on the inside. However, if you have any sort of draft down through the waistline or in through the pant cuffs, it won’t apply. So, your best bet is to select a pair of jeans that fits good in the waist and be relaxed or loose fitting throughout the legs with a length that will cover the top of your shoes.
