Black Jeans

GQ Selects: December Look #4

Once your closet is stocked with a few great basics—dark jeans, indispensable shades, timeless sweaters—pulling together outfits is effortless. This straightforward yet stylish cold-weather combo would look as sharp downtown (just throw a blazer on top) as it would wandering Whistler.


Ray-Ban ‘Outdoorsman®’ 58mm Polarized Aviator Sunglasses.“The iconic Ray-Ban aviator frame style holds true to the classic we love so much, like the gradient brown lenses, but with added luxe touches like leather accents on the brow bridge and temple arms. It’s a style that continues to conjure up images of McQueen and Newman in their respective heydays.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

AG Jeans ‘Matchbox Slim’ Straight-Leg Jeans in Coated Black. “Every man should own a pair of black jeans. They’re an indispensible addition to a guy’s closet, dressier than basic blue. These AGs are the perfect cut for such a pair, skimming the leg for a look that’s equal parts rock ‘n’ roll and refined.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
