Everybody is always talking about boyfriend jeans. What exactly ARE boyfriend jeans? As far as we know, these are really women’s jeans that have the “look” of men’s jeans. They have been adapted for the women’s body. So, as a matter of fact, the boyfriend jeans are not really really HIS jeans. SIGH. It IS complicated, isn’t it!
So when I got this e-mail from BLK DNM telling me about their men’s Jean 5 that has been selling like crazy for women, I had to share with you.
If you really are sufficiently denim head to believe in authenticity, then you should actually do the “right” thing and wear real men’s jeans as your boyfriend jeans. These Jean 5’s are cut for men, their back pockets are positioned to fit a guy’s butt, and the strong orange contrast stitching is exactly what you expect to see on a pair of men’s jeans. The fading and whiskering of the jeans is more subtle. The rips are few and placed in exactly the right places so as to look “unintentional”. You can also see in the close up image below also that the wash has been done in a way to make the jeans look even more like real guy jeans, having some kind of dirty streaks in them.
Just FYI: the Jean 5 is actually a men’s skinny jean, so you really need to upsize to get the slouchier, boy style look.
