Calvin Klein Men's Jeans
In the 1970s Calvin Klein created the designer jeans craze. Hard as it is to believe, before Calvin Klein there was no such thing as designer jeans.
These days Calvin Klein men's jeans are as popular as ever and the perfect addition to any man's wardrobe. Whether you opt for skinny, slim, classic fit or bootcut, they are a great style investment.
Getting to grips with the terminology
Firstly there's the 'rise'. You'll often see men's jeans described as low, medium or high rise; but what does this mean?
Rise is simply the measurement from the bottom of the crotch (where the back, front and side seams meet) to the button on the waistband. Low rise jeans sit closer to the hips, while high rise sit closer to the waist.
Calvin Klein low or low-medium rise men's jeans are more suited for skinnier, slim builds. Medium and high rise suit bulkier builds, as they tend to hide problem areas like 'love handles'.
Different cuts for different shapes
The cut, or fit, of the jeans relates to the leg shape. At the moment skinny and slim cuts are most fashionable. Unfortunately they're not a particularly forgiving style and look better on really slim men.
Skinny are the tightest cut and have the smallest leg opening. They're perfect for slim guys with thin legs. Slim jeans have slightly more space and a slightly wider leg opening. Slim men with bigger legs will probably prefer these to skinny fit.
Calvin Klein men's bootcut jeans are more generously cut and are slightly flared at the bottom, which means they have the widest leg opening. As the name suggests, they are designed to be worn over boots as this will create the ultimate look. This means they look less stylish if worn with trainers, sandals or regular shoes.
