If you’re anything like me, perhaps you’re searching for ways to subtly switch up your style without veering too far from the path of your established style favorites, like a pair of the best jeans for men. The classic jean, with its five-pocket design and timeless roots, is, of course, a well-established, everyday go-to, but what about when you want to step things up a touch from your favorite pair of blue jeans without overdoing it?
Well, I’ve got just the ticket: Head over to Mott and Bow, the DTC masters of some of the best jeans for men, and search instead for some of the best black jeans on the market. If you’ve read any of my Mott and Bow reviews over the years, you know they make some of the best lightweight jeans and other styles in a range of crisp colorways (and they also excel at buttery-soft T-shirts, sweatpants and more!).
That being said, it’s the Mott and Bow Mercer Jeans in Midnight that have really caught my eye as of late, with a polished Slim fit and a deep, inky black color that’s both edgy and cool, yet ever so slightly ready for business casual looks. Yes indeed, if you’re wondering “Can you wear jeans to the office?” I’d say you certainly can — as long as that pair fits well, doesn’t have any noticeable distractions (goodbye, trendy ripped jeans!) and comes in dark, versatile colors.
Again, the Mott and Bow Mercer Jeans in Midnight are just the ticket. They’re made from a midweight 10oz. cotton denim blend, rounded out with elastane for crucial stretch. Beyond that, the fabric itself within the Mott and Bow Mercer Jeans in Midnight is a comfort stretch fabric that moves with you reliably all day long. Plus, plenty of sizes and three inseams are available, which should work for most body types.
And the Midnight shade of your new favorite pair of black jeans should retain its deep color over time, minus some slight fading in parts that receive heavy wear. Above all though — and considering the agreeable $129 price tag — the Mott and Bow Mercer Jeans in Midnight have the potential to be a stylish, slightly edgy yet versatile pair of go-to, must-buy jeans.
