If you fancy a bit of a departure from the tried and trusted indigo denim wear, these jeans from Nudie might be an option.
We’re not always fans of black jeans for men, but we can’t hold anything against this pair. A nice dark washed pair of blue jeans still wins the day for us but variety is the spice of life, so they say.
They’re a straight slim fit with normal rise. They also feature some nice retro looking belt loops of which we’re rather fond. There are five pockets and a large Nudie label on the rear of the waistband.
The only potential sticking point (literally) is that the slim fit becomes distinctly skinny around the ankle. The ankle hem is a mere 7.5in wide, so these are probably not for you if you happen to have sizeable lower legs.
Still, if you’ve got a denim jacket or shirt – or even just something indigo coloured – that you’re keen to wear this summer, these are a useful option for avoiding the dreaded Texas tuxedo look.
As always with Nudie, you know you’re getting a well made piece of clothing and some considered Scandinavian design.
You can pick up a pair of the Nudie Jeans Grim Tim Black Ring Jeans from Woodhouse Clothing. They are currently priced at £90.
