Fashion Friday – Every Guy Needs A Good Pair Of Dark Blue Jeans


I recently read an awesome style guide by Men’s Fashion blogger Effortless Gent called the Lean Wardrobe. It’s a good read and covers some great topics for anyone that has a closet bursting with clothes that they rarely wear. In the book he covered the importance and versatility of owning a good pair of dark blue jeans.

Now I used to be a jeans-only guy, now I wear all kinds of pants from my Hugo Boss Khaki’s to my bright turquoise Bonobos – I’m not afraid to branch about a bit. At the same time I own way too much denim and as I made my closet more lean, the dark blue jeans were just about the only ones that made the cut.

The great thing about dark blue jeans is that they complete so many outfits and can be worn casually to a bar and dressed-up with a sports coat and worn to a meeting. Since I’m not a big suit and tie guy I really love the versatility of dark blue jeans and for those who like to pack lightly they can help you keep everything in your carry-on.

Of course, like most guys I had one or two brands I wore and venturing beyond that was, well, a risk I wasn’t willing to take. Now that I have become more involved in the fashion world I discover new brand every week and have found some awesome companies that make denim that fits great.

Below are three of my top choices for dark blue jeans and like I said above, you need to have at least one good pair of these.





Dolce and Gabbana

    With todays trends, I think dark blue jeans are a must in every mans wardrobe. I just bought a few pairs myself and also some skinny jeans. There is this really great mens style vlog I follow on You Tube called I find it very useful and helpful.

    Hi Morgan:

    Excellent point. A nice pair of dark denim jeans is a must. I would add that a good quality white shirt is an essential addition to the jeans. Not necessarily a white work-office type shirt but a white shirt with some additional detail. A textured pattern is one of my favorites. Great for evening cocktails, a date, or whatever….
    Happy Fashion Friday!

    So what would you suggest for us “HUSKY” men? lol

    I don’t think skinny jeans would be a good look on

    I’m actually very skinny but I have a few husky friends that can pull off looks that I can’t. Probably skinny jeans wouldn’t be the best look for any of them too. I recommend finding jeans that fit and trying them on first until you find the perfect one. Maybe wrangler

    Thanks @Adi, is an awesome one, I also enjoy it as well!

    @Mark – very good point and so true, always good to have a nice crisp white shirt in your arsenal. Textured patterns are great and add a lot of character to a shirt.

    @Richard – you can still go dark blue but you’ll just need a boot cut or similar. You will probably love Bonobos, they work with all body types and are specifically designed for a man’s body!
