Just like for women, finding the right pair of black jeans for the men is definitely a task on its own. I have tried black from just about every brand and I can say that there are some that are above others. There are many different washes of black and depending on what you are looking for, it can be tough trying to find the perfect shade that you want. You can click through the post to see the different types of black.
The classic deep dark black wash is one that I think everyone should have. You can style them in various ways because they can be just as versatile as the classic blues. Finding the perfect pair of these can be a feat of its own though. I have seen a few that have had a washed out lining and don’t look too good cuffed. The key to finding the perfect pitch black is the word “Overdye.” That will insure you that the lining of the jeans will be black and will give you a clean silhouette when you decide to do a cuff.
The faded black. This one has to be my favorite because they are a more relaxed style and they are pretty much low maintenance. You can wash them as much as you want because they are already faded. The shade is also a great way to add details to your look when you are one that isn’t interested in color. The Joe’s are a personal favorite of mine (see review here) not only because of the wash, but also due to the fit of them.
Coated denim is one that is slowly gaining more popularity by the day for men. It is a great alternative to leather as it gives that same slick look and can be worn in numerous ways just like a pair of pitch black pants. By switching out a clean black for a coated, you can add some interest to the usual look. Along with the coating, fashion houses like Givenchy have added motorcycle details to their jeans as well.
Jennifer Garner was spotted picking up daughter Violet from school in Los Angeles, California. She wore her favorite R13 Skinny Jeans in Worn Blue with the Isabel Marant Edge Jacket and some patent burgundy loafers.
Jennifer always has something off with her look, if I have to admit, but she has been looking amazing lately. If something could change with her look here, it would be her shoes. I think a pair of flat ones, like a pair by Celine, would look much better with the overall look. You can click here to purchase R13 at SSENSE.
Ashlee Simpson was spotted getting coffee with some friends after doing some shopping at Sandro in New York City. She wore her favorite combo of the moment, her Anine Bing Double Zipper Skinny jeans in Charcoal with some Golden Goose sneakers and a Sandro parka.
The difference between Ashlee’s style recently, compared to a year or two ago, is really amazing. There isn’t much change, I have to admit, but the minor tweaks that she has done here and there just made me like her style even more. Or maybe it’s because she has been wearing pretty much what I wear everyday? Either way, I really enjoy getting sightings of her. Are you guys liking her style as well? You can click here to purchase these jeans from the AnineBing website for $179.

I always get excited when Rag & Bone releases a new pair of jeans. They are always unique and never afraid to push the boundaries with their details. Like with these, they have taken their paneled jeans a bit further this season by adding some more futuristic racing details along the side of the jeans. The outcome after adding these new details is their new Halifox jeans.
My eyes widened when I first saw these while scrolling through Nordstroms. To me, they give off a Fifth Element, Aeon Flux vibe mixed with a bit of Tribal and racing. Even with all the details, the color palette makes them easy to style for everyday. I say with a simple green t shirt and some boots or sneakers, that’s all you would need to make these look great. What are your thoughts on them? Purchase a pair from Nordstroms here for $285.
