Thank God 90s Men’s Fashion Is Waaay Gone

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.

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

Men’s Fashion Advice – Choosing a Pair of Jeans for Winter Weather

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.

Eddie Bauer Loose fit Jeans

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.

Eddie Bauer Classic Flannel jeans

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.

Men’s Jeans – 4 things to look out for when buying

Men, unlike women, are not renowned for their shopping habits. Truth be told, your typical man will only buy a scant amount of clothing per year. It is therefore important that these items are classic pieces that describe his sense of style. The masculine wardrobe does not hold many articles of clothing. Most men will make do with a few suits, 2-3 pairs of shoes, and a few shirts. The king in the male wardrobe is a pair of jeans. Every man owns a pair of jeans. Below we discuss what to look out for when buying men’s jeans.

The Fit

The first thing you need to look out for is the fit. You need to ensure that the seller understands what kind of fit you want. Most men will go with a straight fit. Today, slim-fit jeans are in style but can’t be worn by every body type! Make sure that the seller understands your size and style but if in doubt, stick with a safe option such as a straight leg or relaxed fit.
