Fall Denim: Five Washes to Know

falldenimblack1There are a billion and one things to know about denim, but at this exact moment you only need to know two:

1) Slim fit is the new normal.

Don’t worry, wearing slim-fit jeans does not mean having an awful time trying to get your keys into/out of your pocket. It means you’re living in modern times.

2) Owning jeans in various washes is the move.

If you care about coordinating with your shoes and the rest of what you’re wearing, you’ll need a few pairs of jeans in different colors. Five washes for you to consider: black, distressed, grey, vintage inspired and dark wash.

Check out the murdered-out fit above and, below, four more ensembles to inspire you to master each category.

What to wear for spring? How to rock spring shoes? In this series we look at five spring shoes and show you two ways to wear each, with guidance from our Men’s Styling Manager Danny Mankin. Because life is better with options.

Shop: Cole Haan wingtip oxford | all men’s shoes

Wingtip oxfords are typically perfect for the workplace–and this pair of shoes is, too. But with the canvas construction, things are already a little less dressy. Recognizing that, you can follow suit and combine a blazer and trousers with a polo instead of a button-down. Or go for a weekend casual look with the vintage-wash jeans and the t-shirt.”

Outfit 1: Wallin Brothers polo | Theory blazer | Theory pants | 1901 pocket square

Outfit 2: Wallin Brothers cardigan | James Perse tee | AG jeans

We decided Wallin & Bros. could easily outfit you for a full week at work, so continue reading for five days of office-ready looks featuring our own exclusive brand.
