WEAR IT LIKE THE ICONS
Just because you’re wearing blue jeans doesn’t mean you can’t look put together. Light Denim, thought of as mostly casual, can actually be used for dressier styles. Consider this double-breasted blazer look. Style icons, such as Ralph Lauren and Prince Charles, have sported a blazer similar to this for years. A simple navy blazer with gold regimental buttons pays homage to the traditional NAVY blazers once won by those men and women in service. Depending on the cut of your jacket, you want your jeans to reflect that. If your blazer is cut slimmer, a slightly tapered jean should be worn. If you opt for a more classic look, a straight leg jean should be the option chosen.
Sometimes adding a small cuff can add some visual interest and casual feeling to the overall look. In warm temperatures, opt for some streamlined penny loafers or slippers like these. Wearing calf-high socks in the summer can be too much. Opt for loafer socks or dare we say, no socks! Finish off the look with proper grooming and unique accessories like a bold pocket square or lapel pin.

BUSY DAY RUNNING ERRANDS
A guys, we’re Luckily. We are in a time of more options then ever at our fingertips. As men, we’re in the golden age of finding clothes that fit both seasonal needs as well as personal preferences. With jeans, there are tons of options from which to choose. Jeans have opened up to a world of color to incorporate a variety of eye-catching and interesting hues. Fidelity’s Twill Pant comes in a variety of colors and we were naturally drawn to the Lumina Steel option. While it is similar to a faded blue jean, we always keep in mind what will work with items in our wardrobe currently. The great thing about Fidelity’s jeans is that since they have a little bit of stretch in them, you never have to worry about spending time breaking them in. Sometimes you want to just throw on a pair during the weekend and not worry about them being unwashed or too rigid. These twill pants are the perfect weekend warrior. Just throw them on with a button-down shirt and a cardigan and you have the perfect cool weather combo. Perfect while you run errands or grab lunch downtown…these jeans are incredibly versatile.
If you want to elevate your look even further, top them off with the perfect bag! Living in NYC means carrying a ton! This monster tote bag from Steele Canvas is as rough and rugged as it gets. Made from a waterproof and tear resistant vinyl, you can hold just about anything and everything inside this bag. Dry cleaning, dirty laundry, family beach days, vegetables from the union square farmers market…you name it, this bag can hold it!
DAY-TO-NIGHT DIVE BAR
Let’s face it, jeans are meant to take a beating. Whether you want to look The Boss or Marlon Brando, wearing jeans has been cool since they were invented in 1871. If you love jeans you’ve probably got them in a few of the typical shades..deep navy, a worn-in blue pair and finally one of the most important colors, a black pair. Black jeans don’t necessarily get the love that your typical blue pair gets, but they should have a place in your wardrobe regardless. Versatile, masculine and above all else, just plain cool looking. Living in New York City, black is a go-to color for a lot of guys. Its dressed up, stain-proof and makes the wearer look like he just walked out of the toughest bar in town. (if you’re into that look)
While we don’t ever recommend buying a black suit, black jeans are a must-have for that cool casual look that doesn’t take much to get together. Whether you’re headed out for a night with your friends or headed to the movies with your lady, these jeans can pull some serious weight in your wardrobe. Pair it up with a plain white t-shirt, Henley or in our case this black one and you can look as cool as THIS Hollywood actor.
