I feel like I’m opening myself up for criticism with this statement, but I’m going to say it anyways. It is easier for guys to dress well than girls. While girls have so many things to choose from and factors to consider fashion is much more straight forward for men.
Sneakers, jeans and a teeshirt is the ultimate outfit for a guy and is appropriate for so many things. Of course, it can go horribly wrong; running shoes, jeans that don’t fit and a teeshirt touting your “sweet air guitar skills,” are a recipe for disaster. On the other hand, a pair of classic converse and a v-neck are the basis for an outfit that looks effortlessly easy. Add a vest or a hat and you are down right styling. Now all that’s left to complete the quintessential “go anywhere” outfit is the great pair of jeans.
My favorite label for men’s jeans is Diesel. While they are one of the pricier brands, their jeans fit great and can be that pair of staple jeans every wardrobe needs. A pair of dark straight leg Diesel jeans have the style and quality to last through many seasons. Diesel offers tons of fits and washes and is sold at major retailers. Two of my favorites, pictured above, both retail for $160. One benefit to the perpetually gloomy economy is major sales at a myriad of retailers. So guys, if you’re looking to splurge on the ultimate pair of jeans, I feel you can’t go wrong with Diesel.
