What’s high on your shopping list heading into fall? Best make sure some of the best menswear from Todd Snyder tops the list. The NYC-based designer will surely help you cover all your bases, including when it comes to the best men’s jeans — that’s right, the best men’s denim just so happens to be made by a designer that also knows how to make an incredible suit and casual boat shoes. Talk about versatility. But we’re not talking about any old pair of jeans off the rack. We’re talking about Todd Snyder selvedge jeans that deliver in terms of fabric, fit and feel. Jeans made from a more rugged fabric (a la Japanese cotton selvedge) are just what the doctor ordered for fall and winter, in fact.
Again, there’s one place to go in this regard. When you want selvedge jeans that deliver quality, an agreeable price and infinite wearability, you might just want (no, you absolutely do want), the Slim Fit Japanese Stretch Selvedge Jean in Indigo Rinse from the good folks at Todd Snyder.
The best men’s selvedge jeans get an upgrade here — while selvedge denim is normally unwashed and stiff (this is known as raw selvedge), Todd Snyder selvedge denim receives a handsome indigo rinse and uses unique stretch selvedge fabric from Japan. These aren’t your average pair of jeans, to say the least. They’re refined yet versatile, as at home with a Todd Snyder blazer as with one of the designer’s Champion T-shirts. The fit on these blue jeans is slim and modern, yet not rock star-skinny.
This means you can wear these slim dark blue jeans with the best chukka boots and a chambray shirt, or else with rugged men’s leather boots and a thermal henley all fall and into winter. Todd Snyder Japanese selvedge denim really is one-of-a-kind, so it’s a bit pricer ($198 via Todd Snyder), but no less worth it. In fact, when you find a pair of selvedge jeans you can wear for months on end into winter — and well past that — I’d suggest you snap them up ASAP.
