Denim Done Right: Styling Your 501®s For Him

Denim Done Right: Styling Your 501®s For Him

When you think Levi’s®, more often than not you think of the 501®s. A timeless classic, the 501®s were the first ever pair of blue jeans created way back in 1853 and have remained a men's wardrobe staple ever since. The secret? Their unmatched comfort and versatility make styling men’s fits hassle-free. The 501®s are one pair of jeans for men you can blindly throw on with pretty much anything and know that you’ll look good wherever you’re headed – whether it’s catching a game at your local hangout place or a fancy date.


And since the looks you can create with the 501®s are virtually endless, we’ve curated tips from our stylists on how you can level up your denim game.


Cracking a cold
one open with the boys? Spending a low-key day around town? Or just lounging at
home? Whatever it is, we can tell you want to keep your look casual with a hint
of style. And nothing achieves this better than the classic combination of a
t-shirt and 501®s. A simple, well-fitted tee tucked in gives you a clean, sleek
aesthetic and tucked out, a more relaxed one. Opt for a baggy t-shirt if you
want to be easygoing or a graphic tee for a bit more edge. Finish off your
casual men’s fit with your favourite sneakers.


Pro tip:
Cuffing your men’s jeans can take your look from laidback to sharp.

Taking your 501®s from day to night is as hassle-free as can be. Start by picking a darker wash as they’re easier to create a sophisticated look with. Next, pair them with a crisp button-down shirt and sleek dress shoes. But if you wish to dial it down slightly, swap the shirt for a fitted polo or t-shirt and the dress shoes for some dapper sneakers. Again, tuck the top as you like but we’d strongly suggest cuffing your men’s jeans for a polished, streamlined silhouette. Complete this fit with a leather belt and a watch and you’re ready for the night, whether it’s a night out with your friends or a big date.


Pro tip: A light bomber jacket will elevate this aesthetic like no other, so throw it on
if it matches the weather.


Since the Original 501®s started out as workwear, it’s only fitting that they’ve evolved
to contemporary office attire as well. And a professional look calls for a
crisp, plain, or lightly patterned shirt neatly tucked into your 501®s, matched
with a sharp, neutral coloured belt. No work fit is complete without a strong,
structured blazer that lets everyone know you mean business. Choose from a
traditional blazer, sports coat or even a suit jacket if you’re looking to
experiment a little. And lastly, tie this refined yet relaxed aesthetic
together with formal dress shoes.


Pro tip: Dark men’s jeans – deep blues or black – are most appropriate washes for corporate spaces.

So go ahead and pick the 501®s of your choice today. Remember to style them however you like and make them your own.
