So you’ve had long and fun summer months, wearing your ripped and distressed jeans and denim shorts. Pretty soon will be the time for you to fold those up and stack in the back of your closet.
Fall and winter are more “serious” months, at least, when it comes to men’s denims. Bleached and ripped jeans won’t do it when a) you have to go back to the office, and b) when going out on a date night to a cool restaurant or club.
Raw selvedge denim is what we think of as “noble”. Selvedge dark wash jeans elevate an outfit, independent of what you wear them with.
Our reviewers as well as yours truly (I am a huge and devoted fan of raw selvedge men’s jeans) did an online search and here is what we found. We’ve included lots of price ranges as well as different fits, including the classic straight leg and the skinny.
Some of you will prefer to have a bit of stretch – we’ve covered that, too.
