We’ve probably got a ways to go before it really starts feeling like spring, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start your search for spring style essentials today. And oftentimes, the best men’s spring gear should start with pieces you might normally overlook — like the slim black jeans from the Levi’s Made and Crafted line pictured at the top of the page. Which is to say, if you focus on quality basics, the rest of your spring style needs will fall into place — that goes for upgrades to your home bar and even the purchase of a new, stylish wool utility jacket. Without further ado, let’s look toward a new season.
When it comes to making stylish men’s denim, Levi’s is perhaps the foremost American expert on the category — and it’s helpful that the Levi’s 511 here gets an added upgrade via the excellent attention to detail from the Levi’s Made and Crafted line. Wear these slim black jeans with an inky blue indigo denim jacket and a rugged short-sleeve henley this spring.
