- Bootcut: Bootcut denim are the perfect cut for any guy hoping to look fashionable without looking outrageous. This slim cut fits closely (but not tightly) with a slight flare towards the leg opening. Bootcut jeans make sense for most body shapes, too, because they balance the body well.
- Relaxed fit: Relaxed-fit denim, which are loosely cut from waist to leg opening, are great for heavier men. The roomier shape of these blue denim won’t accentuate curves and bulges like other cuts will. Thin guys should avoid relaxed-fit denim, as this cut can look loose and sloppy on skinny legs.
Skinny: Skinny denim are a risky bet for many men, but they have the potential to look hip on the right guy. The skinny jeans club is fairly exclusive, as this ultra-tight fitting cut can make average-to-heavy body types look even larger. This cut should be reserved for the twiggy body shape, which allows skinny denim to flatter a thin figure. Try this cut with a trendy vintage shoe or a fashionable sneaker to complete the look.
Slim fit: For those who want the hipster style of skinny denim but don’t make the cut weight-wise, there are slim-fit denim. This cut of denim is tapered in a similar style to skinny denim but not to the form-fitting extreme. With slim-fit denim, you get the best of both worlds: fashion-forward looks and comfort.
Straight cut: Straight-leg denim are the most common cut you’ll find. Neither tapered nor excessively loose, this conservative style is ideal for those who want their denim to be simple and classic.
