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.
Though the model in Replay’s spring/summer 2012 men’s lookbook is pretty stoic, there’s nothing depressing about the Italian-made, premium denim seen here. Flipping through the outfits put together from the collection provide ample styling inspiration, despite the fact that there are only three fits of jean: regular, regular slim, and antifit. Why not wear a selvedge denim shirt with dark-rinse trousers? How about pairing white chinos with a white T-shirt, denim shirt, and a denim jacket? Or just revel in how comfy and lived-in these jeans look without veering into sloppy sweatpants territory. Win-win!

As it is beginning to get colder out, it can be hard to find the right thing to wear to keep warm, but not too warm. Thankfully, jean jackets are just the thing to get the job done, and (bonus!) look great while doing it. Wondering what goes with a jean jacket? Lucky for you, the guys over at Gilt MANual have laid it out for us plain and simple!
“What are the options to match with a light denim jacket?
Sunglasses. A white T-shirt. A white button-down. A white button-down with a tie. A blue button-down. A blue button-down with a tie. A pink button down… but probably not with a tie. A corduroy shirt. A flannel. Chinos. Of any color. Well, maybe except bright red. Cargo pants. Dark denim jeans. Light denim jeans. Cords. Cutoffs. A vintage watch.”
