How should jeans fit? Are you wearing the right fit of jeans? In my men's jeans guide, I outline six different styles of jeans and what men's body shape they will suit. Understanding how jeans should fit is important in order to get the best style of jeans for you. Men's jeans come in a variety of shapes and fits but they won't suit everyone. In my jeans style guide, I'll be covering men's skinny jeans; slim jeans; straight jeans; athletic jeans; standard jeans; and bootcut jeans.

I think skinny jeans can look awesome on bigger men, also can we talk about the length of the jeans? every pair of jean where wayyyy too long
Wayne Catlin (1 month ago)
The most important thing with jeans is correct waist and leg length!! Nothing makes me feel more sick than seeing men wearing jeans that are clearly too big... 😮😑😥😨

Skinny Jean's are okay as long as they're jet black.

I have raver jeans in the closet from 23 years ago. They have super wide legs and completely hide my feet. I think I'll wear them out tomorrow.

I have big legs. And its hard to find good fit jeans, so: I buy slim/skinny in a size up. I end up with jeans that look custom, but aren't restricting.

What jeans would you choose for really skinny tall guys
ayyy (1 month ago)
svg vict0r super skinny or regular skinny seems good enough because if you wear anything of a bigger cut it may make you look a bit.. weird

I wear slim fit
kronos77 (5 months ago)
You are missing something huge here. The balance of upper body and lower body. If you have any sort of masculine, wide shoulders or big chest, or even a big gut, then skinny or slim are not for you. Boot cut are out of fashion, but that's fashion. An aesthetic sense would tell you that they can look very good on men with big or wide upper bodies.
Nicholas W.M. (5 months ago)
That's how I know I'm getting old. Hahaha bootcut was in when I was in highschool in the early 2000s. What's weird is I always loved bootcut because that was the fad when I was young, and I always liked how they sort of tailored around my shoes. But Now, I literally only wear my bootcut with boots. Hahaha one day I went jeans shopping and since I am older and with an athletic build I prefer a more fitted set of jeans. So I usually get slim, or straight, sometimes athletic, and sometimes skinny if they aren't to tight. I have a rule about skinny jeans though, if it takes me more than 10 seconds to get them off it's definitely a no go. Lol I swear I one time it too me 4 minutes just to get them off. But anyway, it's interesting how your style can just randomly change one day.

Skinny jeans should never be worn by a man, just like popped collars or socks and sandals.

They're one specific type of cut that doesn't exist... They need to have a slim fit jean, the ones you showed after skinny.....except tapered below the knee a lot more....

I have trouble finding for jeans that fit me in length because I'm short I'm 5'6 I usually get 34 X 30 but the length is to long and the bottom of the jeans buckle.
Marcel Nogueira (1 year ago)
I am 5-11 and 170 pounds(31 waist) with wide shoulders. I wear bootcut jeans(with no boots) in every occasion, because I look really sexy in it. I guess body type counts a lot.
Mikeall Davis (1 year ago)
I'm a big guy in my torso especially the gut area, however I don't really have typical big guy legs I wear slim straights but I feel like they still don't look right on me do I need to change to a different style? Or am I just over thinking them?
Call Of Dookie (1 year ago)
Damn, I just bought some boot cut jeans from A&F on sale and was going to wear them with my Cowboy Boots, I think that will be okay, right? I'm from TX we wear lots of high end Boots.

My legs are small and I have like no ass and when I wear skinny jeans i just feel like i look like a crack head dude but i like the style of it on other people. I might try on some athletics to fill the lower half of me out but i like skinnies cause theyre tight around the ankles. ill forever be confused about this

women love ass now and days and it looks good to be honest. cargo shorts make my ass look good and im a straight guy. but when i ware jeans my ass looks saggy, and i dont think that will look attractive to the ladies in my opinion. i love cargo shorts and demin vest. kickass combination.

i choose the fit of my jeans based on how tight the area around my calves are. Too tight just looks ridiculous.
xreyuk (1 year ago)
I'd also say that Athletic ones are also known as tapered jeans, and you can get slim tapered jeans which are like a slim jean in the thigh, but a skinny jean around the ankle/leg opening.
Bhavya Bansal (1 year ago)
My waist is around 30, and my thighs are around 23-24 inches.I work out. Which fit should I look for ? Also, suggest some brands in the $50-100 range.
Janelle Powell (1 year ago)
I'd suggest Levi's 511 Slim Stretch. As I am smaller, I usually go for Levi's 511s or 510s in boys but I imagine men's have a similar material.

Lanier Smith (1 year ago)
Fabulous coverage of Jeans for all men! Bravo Robin. I wear Levis 501 in black, blue, white, grey and red. The black and grey get the most wearing but it's nice to have the others to fit my mood. Looking to add tan as well. Love mixing them up with casual and formal touches. Its all in the styling, accessories and attitude. Cheers.

There might be a compromise... I live in the west. The guys out here are cowboys that wear tight wranglers and cowboy boots. Lots of rodeos with muscular cowboys in boot cut wranglers. Have mercy. I'm married and I'm going to hell. Don't tell my mama.
Pijbb (1 year ago)
Great video, but I feel your jeans/trousers here and in instagram photos are slightly too long, resulting in the fabric sort of 'pooling' at the bottom. Do you usually get them tailored? I have all of my trousers/jeans hemmed and tapered. Only costs ~£15.
R.J. (1 year ago)
Pro Tip: If you are super skinny, to the point to wear men's skinny jeans look like standard jeans on you, I HIGHLY recommend wearing women's skinny jeans. I've recently started doing this because I've always had this problem, and I am absolutely in love with the way they look and feel. Trust me, most people won't even know the difference, and if they do, who cares because you look dope. I hope this helps someone.

These jeans look baggy IMO including the skinny jeans but only around the ankles. Robin try cuffing your jeans to show off your shoes more. Skinny jeans are the way to go.

That’s the case for me except for work. I wear boots for work so boot cut or straight leg are a must. If not working slim fit are a must.

Robin, once again you nailed that perfect hairstyle! Have a great week ahead!
Geniusman15 (1 year ago)
Great work! I'd suggest describing your frame before showing the fit of the various types of jeans. Height and weight do influence what ends up being more flattering. Additionally, a video/series on tailoring (jeans/pants, suits, shirts), particularly for guys under 6' would be helpful. I'd also dig a similar exploration in this series on: Shorts (lengths) T-shirts Dress shirts (casual/formal, fabric choice) Jackets (bombers, shearling, hoodies field jackets, cold weather) Accessories (watches, ties, scarves) Shoes (sneakers, boots, dress shoes) Keep up the great work!

Mehdi (1 year ago)
Hi Robin, i have so many problems to find a jean which fits me because my body is so weird lol. Like, i'm 5.7 and 65 kg, which is a normal weight for my height. But it's like all the 65 kg are in my legs ! It's so embarssing like i'm 19 and i want to wear skinny or at least slim jeans, jeans that will let my shoes appear very well, and normally i can because i'm not like fat or somethin, but every jean that i wear is so tight around my legs. So my question is : is there athletic or standad jeans which are tight around the ankle ? Or if there isn't what can u advise me for my situation ?

I personally prefer skinnier fitting jeans. However, I''ve been rowing for the past couple of years so my thighs have grown to the point where when I wear skinny or slim fitting jeans it always hugs my thighs but is fairly loose below the knees. Would you recommend I get my jeans tapered?
Rashpal Cheema (2 months ago)
I know I'm over a year too late but consider Levi's 512 - they're slim fit with a decent amount of room in the thigh and then they taper below the knees. Basically they're slim fit with a taper.
Nocturnal geo (1 year ago)
Just to add, while my legs have grown, I am still quite a slim person, which is why i prefer to stick to tighter fitting jeans.
