GQ Selects: Diesel’s Expertly Faded Jeans

“The trick to buying distressed jeans is finding a pair that looks like I did it myself. What I love about Diesel jeans is the washing and distressing is carefully thought out and only gets better with more wear. The wash on this particular pair has a faded, summer look, as if I jumped in the pool and let them dry off in the sun. The slightly lighter-weight denim has a nice hand to it and the cut, a slim straight leg with a tapered ankle, is easy to roll up and with flip-flops or your favorite loafer for a flash of ankle. These are jeans that would look appropriate with the dressiest suit jacket or that Calvin Klein T-shirt.”

—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
