Buyer's Guide - Buying Men's Jeans Guide in India
A pair of jeans is one of the most important parts of a men’s wardrobe. In fact, one pair of jeans is just not enough. Pyjamas and track pants are for the convenient times when you apparently go about crawling inside your house. Pants and trousers are mostly for formal events.
Okay fine, in a semi-formal event as well trousers might still be the more preferred options but what about casual outings with family or friends? What about hitting a party or a club or maybe just a restaurant? It all comes down to a pair of jeans even when you have to hit your local market.
Eventually, you realize that jeans is such an important and necessary part of your wardrobe and just a pair of it would never do.
Even though jeans are universal and the same pair can be worn to different occasions but still you can’t wear a rugged pair to a semi-formal event and neither can you wear a very simple, minimalistic jeans to parties. Hence, at least a couple of pair of jeans and ideally 3-4 pairs of jeans are necessary for a man’s wardrobe.
However, the point of concern is that is there more to buying a pair of jeans than what we usually care about? As a matter of fact, there is! For men, it is usually about the price and of course, “this looks good dude, let’s buy it”.
Though this might be a relatively stress - free and time - saving strategy, it is not a great one when long-term effects of fitting issues and design problems are considered. Let’s consider the things we should look at while buying a pair of jeans.
While most people would be hell bent on the fact that slim fit jeans are the best fit jeans and who wears a loose fit but in 90s bell bottoms were the fashion and were taking the market by storm.
Even though anyone wearing a bell bottom today would be laughed at today, loose fits are also reasonably in fashion and the fit you choose should depend a lot on your body structure as well.
Slim fits, for example, would be extremely uncomfortable for people with fat legs and will also look ugly. Similarly loose fit will appear too saggy and inappropriate on people with thin legs.
Even though going with the trend and fashion is cool but it is more important to ensure that the thing you wear is comfortable. If you are carrying a constipated look in order to wear a stylish jeans then you are only going to attract more negative comments.
Don’t buy that skinny fit or low crotch jeans just because everybody is wearing it. Always shop with a balanced approach. Adapt a bit so that your comfort range expands gradually but make sure you maintain a basic convenience level at all times. Do remember these tips when you go out jeans shopping next time.
Let’s look at the 5 types of fitting in which jeans is available:
Rise of Jeans
Let’s break another myth for you; you cannot wear jeans at whatever waistband you want. A jeans is only worn at the waist level it is designed to be worn at!
Though you can still wear it anywhere you want irrespective of the jeans’ rise but this can impact the overall look of the jeans as the butt, thigh and leg regions are built according to the rise of the jeans. A jeans that is made to be worn above the belly button would appear as if hanging from your waist if it is worn under the belly button.
Similarly, a jeans designed to be worn below the belly button or near the crotch will be too uncomfortable if worn above the belly button and you will find it tough to crouch. Hence, before buying a jeans you should be clear about at what level of waist you would like to wear your jeans.
If ideal recommendations are something to go by, one should decide on the rise of the jeans depending on the proportion of the length of their lower body and middle body. If you have longer legs then you should prefer Low rise or Low crotch jeans depending on how long is your lower body in relation to your middle body.
