Straight style: men's straight jeans from Esprit
Timelessly cool, and currently very on-trend: straight fit jeans are the ever-popular classic. They definitely have a place in your wardrobe because these classic jeans are so versatile. In light and dark washes, with used or distressed effects and in trendy colours. If you are looking for straight jeans with a high level comfort, you'll find a large selection in our online shop.
Clean and casual lines: the straight cut
Straightforward and without fuss – straight jeans are just what the name suggests. Straight cut with an equal width from crotch to hem. These trousers lie a little tighter on the thigh while leaving more room for the calves. Straight fit is often referred to as regular fit but the straight cut is more likely to be somewhere between regular and slim fit, because straight jeans are cut a little narrower than regular jeans.
Straight jeans are reminiscent of the originals. They were the first model that Levi Strauss produced – designed to give manual workers sufficient freedom of movement. This is exactly where the all-rounder still succeeds today: together with slim fit jeans, it is one of the most popular cuts for men.
A fit for many
The narrow, straight shape of straight jeans will suit many men because they are figure-flattering. Broader thighs or strong calves are well concealed. A welcome bonus: the straight leg stretches the figure, which makes you look a little taller. Bearing this in mind, the fit should not be too tight.
Tip: jeans with a straight cut are also good for turn ups, making your outfit all the more casual.
'80s, '90s and the best of today – straight jeans are always on-trend
The casual cut of straight jeans offers great comfort with style. This makes denim trousers the perfect basic for your street style: with a long-sleeved shirt, sweat jacket and trainers, it's a modern classic. You can create a trendy retro look with light denim jeans in distinctive washes. Combine with thick-soled trainers, tennis socks, a polo shirt and denim jacket. If you turn up your straight jeans a little, your outfit will look particularly stylish.
Which shirt goes with which straight jeans?
It depends on where you want to go with the combination. Straight jeans are available, in addition to the classic denim blue, in washes and styles. Not every choice of jeans and every shirt that you prefer for your free time also fits in at the office, and vice-versa.
Straight fit and a business shirt – right on the money
Classics work best for the office look. Consider a white shirt in a fashionable slim fit with a Kent collar, partnered with grey or black jeans in a subtle washed out effect. Add black boots – perfect. Light blue is the second candidate to look at: a plain-coloured shirt can be matched to 5-pocket indigo jeans, plus a chic brown belt and brown shoes. When temperatures get a bit cooler, stay warm and smart in a classic cut cotton coat. You may choose to wear a jacket or a chic sweater over the shirt. All these combinations work well, even if a swanky event is in your diary.
Timeless casual – straight jeans and casual shirt
Away from the office and business appointments, things can get more colourful with a checked flannel shirt or one with a floral print. Blue dark washed jeans look good too. Reach for a fashionable top with distressed jeans or a shirt with an all-over print, worn open over a T-shirt. Chunky boots or simple leather lace-ups are ideal.
Denim shirt with jeans, is that possible?
Don't worry about over-matching – we'll show you how denim with jeans can be turned into an exciting outfit. The rule is very simple: don't combine two identical tones, in other words – dark trousers go with a light shirt and vice-versa.
The final touch: footwear
Finally, choosing your shoes: which model do straight jeans with their wide leg look best with? Actually, all the usual suspects that stand out somewhat do and they can be a little roughed-up if you like:
- Flat lace-ups
- Boots, e.g. desert boots
Loafers or slip ons work only to a limited extent, as they can get lost under the wide hem.
