They’re not quite denim, but a soft, medium-weight cotton in a classic navy. The name “Caden Carrot” was intimidating (carrot-shaped jeans are definitely not meant for my small-bottomed self), but I was pleasantly surprised by the fit.
Rolled up, I’ll enjoy these relaxed-fit pants with sandals and some breezy crop tops and tees. A nice sheer button down would be a great way to take these to work.
They’re super comfortable, and can be worn low on the hips for a little bit of a drop-crotch look or pulled up for a more of a classic chino feel. Either way, they’re easy breezy.
Contrary to popular belief, men also have trouble finding the right fit, when it comes to jeans. Thanks to the denim industry, a multitude of fits have been conceived to break open the shackles of boring, constrained male silhouettes. Consider the Carrot fit jeans: built roomy in the thigh area, dropped crotch, and tapered down to a straight leg. Depending on the cut of the jean, a man with muscular thighs can carry the carrot jeans off like a slim or straight leg, without cutting off circulation. Warning: if you are on the short side, look for Carrot fit jeans that begin the taper above the knees. If the thigh is too baggy, your thighs will look bigger, unless that’s the look you were going for.
