For women's fashion.
In case you missed it, one day last month, April, marked the 15th celebration of Denim Day, an annual violence prevention day focused on raising awareness about abuse and violence against women and children. Working to get everyone talking about such an important topic, many sponsors including Dasha Wellness & Spa, Moroccan Oil, and D.I.D Nail Paint helped put together an incredible event.
There’s a reason we practically grew up in denim pants, they’re stylish, they go with anything, and they are pretty durable. No matter if you ripped them, cuffed them, or turned them into shorts- we’re betting jeans were and still are a major part of your wardrobe.
While studies have shown that leggings are officially the new ‘it’ item for young girls who have strayed away from jeans in favor of ‘athleisure’ pants (yes there are studies done about what type of pants young girls are wearing!). We don’t believe denim is a passing fade (despite the sale of leggings sky rocketing) and aren’t ready to give up our favorites just yet.
So to honor the baggie pants of our high school days and skinny jeans of our weekends nowadays, here are our favorite ways to wear denim. With so many options, you can leave your workout clothes where they belong, at the gym!
1. As pants because there’s still something so great about a pair of jeans that fits just right. AG Adriano Goldshmied’s Stilt Roll Up Jean is the perfect pair for the warm weather with there laid back feel and skinny legged fit. Perfect to complement those new summer sandals you just bought!
The ‘90s were a magical decade.They brought us the best era rap music has ever seen – and in my opinion will ever see. They were the days when guys could turn on the TV and idolize greats like Michael Jordan and Roberto Baggio. Mobile phones evolved from Zack-Morris-bulky to the tiny Nokias you could play snake on at the back of class.
But, there were some failures as well. The dot-com bubble crippled many.An American president will forever be remembered for his cigar-wielding antics instead of his accomplishments. And of course, men’s fashion was at an all time appalling low – it only took flicking on the TV to see the Fresh Prince in all his neon, ill-fitting glory.
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.
501 Shrink to Fit in Mineral Red
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.

Levi’s 514 Skinny men’s jeans are another great option for the season.

With a history of quality and offered in traditional styles as well as newer options, cuts and colors, Levi’s jeans are a great selection for days and nights in the city.

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.
If you are looking for a winter jacket and are also a football fanatic, then the choices of outerwear to keep you warm and support your team are endless. The styles range from lighter jackets, to down puffer-coats and wool jackets. Whatever style you choose, you can have with your team’s emblem. It doesn’t matter whether you are a college football fan or a fan of the NFL, you’ll be able to find the perfect jacket style for you.
