Over the past five years, the denim trend has shown a lack of masculinity. Tightly fitting tapered legs visually distorted the silhouette — at the top, the man looked like an adult, and at the bottom, like a little boy. This year, on the catwalks of famous fashion houses, you can see how the approach of designers to the male direction has changed. On the one hand, the collections are full of variety, and on the other, there is a steady tendency towards the correct classic silhouette: men’s jeans in a fashionable interpretation are free models of different lengths and styles.
Men love convenience and comfort, so jeans are worn by adherents of casual style, lovers of intellectual fashion create dandy looks. Free-cut models are worn at home, for a walk, to work. Men ́s trousers made of cotton fabric with a density of 14 ounces and above — real denim — are quite expensive and do not go out of fashion. For the manufacture of models from the mass market, cheaper fabrics are used:
- Jean less dense and short-lived material;
- Stretch — guarantees a tight fit, stretches in the right places, is more often used for sewing jeans for women.
The fit of fashionable jeans is divided into the following types:
- Fit available in three versions — Regular, Slim, Skinny;
- Cut — the type of male cut differs from the knee and below — Standard, Tapered. Boot Cut;
- Rise — the models are distinguished by the height of the seating position on the male figure — High, Medium, Low.
Marking «Selvage”Means that the pants are cut so that the hem of the fabric does not need to be overcast. The edge is preserved during cutting and does not require overlock processing.
To dye fashionable jeans until 1866, a plant-derived pigment was used, after that date, the fabric is dyed with an artificial compound. The result is men’s indigo trousers — a rich deep blue that hasn’t gone out of style for decades.
- Single fold — a single fold of the leg by 1-2 cm. In this case, the effect of a narrow light strip is achieved, which makes the male look interesting and not boring.
- A double fold is equal in height to a single one, but the jeans are getting shorter. This style is suitable for high shoes — men’s boots up to the ankle and above.
- Double with an edge — when the first fold is made equal to two lengths of a short take, and the second is shortened. As a result, the hem of the leg is visible, which supports the fashionable youth trend.
- Pinroll — first the pant leg is laid, and then as many short turns are made. This method completely changes the silhouette of men’s trousers. If they were straight or flared, then after this turn they will look like fashionable banana pants or cargo pants that are tapered from top to bottom. This way of wearing jeans is popular with sneakerheads.
- The wide option to wrap the trouser leg is similar to the single one, only the height of the fold is from five to ten centimeters.
- The double wide version is used by those who wear high boots who want to showcase beautiful fashionable socks.

What jeans are going out of fashion
Two or three years ago, tight-fitting stretch models occupied the main place on the fashion catwalks of Europe. The legs were narrowed. The male silhouette resembled a penguin, whose movements were constrained by tight-fitting trousers. Slouchy skinny jeans for men with a turn-up for an oversized trouser look. As a result, the ratio of the length of the body and legs changes, which visually shorten the models that are narrowed with a turn.
