Men’s Fashion Trend – New Colors For New 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

Levis 501 Liteweight Rigid Shrink to Fit Jeans  300x300 mens fashion

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

Levis 501 Liteweight Rigid Shrink to Fit Jeans Mineral Red 300x300 mens fashion

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.  With a button fly and original fit that sits at the waist, the 501 fits classic through the seat and thigh.  Levi’s jeans for men are always an easy option for spring and summer.  If you’ve been searching for Levi’s shrink to fit in New York, Dave’s New York has many various colors and washes.

514 Tumbled Ray

Levis 508 Regular Fit Tapered Leg Jeans 300x300 mens fashion

Levi’s 514 Skinny men’s jeans are another great option for the season.  Providing a rigid denim look with a stiff feel, and a clean look without fading, the fit on these is slimmer than the traditional 501 and 505 jeans.  Currently one of their most popular fits, these combine traditional Levi’s jeans, New York style and quality sure to be trusted.  The 514’s sit below the natural waist, and offer a straight leg with a slim fit through the seat and thigh.  Finding high quality Levi’s jeans in New York City is easy with Dave’s New York.

If you’re in need of some new jeans for spring and summer, the selection of Levi’s available at Dave’s New York can’t be beat.  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.  As mentioned earlier, with jeans “the wheel doesn’t have to be reinvented,” but having new colors and styles does give you more variety for the season.

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 mens fashion

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.

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.

Musings on Men’s Fashion: Don’t forget about Edwin Jeans

edwin mens fashion
Edwin Jeans might seem like a new competitor on the jeans scene but quite the opposite – The Edwin Jeans brand has actually been trading since as far back as the 1940’s. In 1947, Edwin started out selling its goods outside the factories of Japan…a practice they continue still. But the brand has had a huge impact throughout the world, the Edwin Jeans brand were given a makeover in the 1990’s and are now churning out some great designs like the “Old Man of the Sea’ tee depicted above. Gotta love some merch that reminds you of Hemingway.
At the end of the day, I think Edwin Jeans represents a brand that hasn’t forgotten its roots and one that stands proud of its reputation for quality. I mean, their jeans are still made with a heavy 16 ounce demin – who does that these days? I wish I still had my 503’s from college…anyway, check out their site and see for yourself the variety of designs to be had.
And despite what haters may have to say, we only talk about killer jeans here. :P

Musings on Men’s Fashion – Review of Bowie Jeans by Kasil Workshop

Every so often, I am awarded the chance to review merchandise that leaves me awe-struck and wanting more. The Bowie jeans from the renowned denim brand Kasil Workshop are one such piece. Let me explain my enamor to you now so you can start saving up for a pair of your own, ’cause you need one.

First, although these jeans are pretty damn slim, they aren’t constrictive on the legs or the pelvis, which is my quintessential beef with skinny denim at large. Praise form-fitting! On top of that, the denim itself is super-soft and almost pliable, which not only helps them be more comfortable, but also makes the process of cuffing that much easier.

Secondly, despite being slim, Bowie’s pockets accommodate for all my carrying needs. The front pockets are deep, roomy, and sown with plum-colored cotton fabric – gotta say I love that last little detail. The right one also comes with a cute key pocket, perfect for storing a couple of quarters or a stick of gum. The back pockets are spacious too and come with a simple yet noticeable design, no studs or crazy patterns. Additionally, none of the pockets bulge when occupied, which I find a bit magical.

Thirdly, and this goes without saying, the stitching is top notch and the waist perfectly matches my waistline. Again, I’m head-over-heels in love with these jeans and I think you’d fall for them as well. Be sure to give their newest collection a gander at the Kasiljean Official Shop.

Did I mention that the interior of the cuffs match my Chucks?! SWOOOOoonnn….
