MAKE A SPLASH IN
WHITE JEANS

Forget everything you’ve heard about white jeans – it’s time to give them carte blanche with your look

You’d be hard pressed to find a man who doesn’t have a pair of jeans in his wardrobe. During the cooler months they’re a versatile string to your wardrobe’s bow. But why should winter have all the fun? When the heat is on, swap your heavyweight indigo denim for white jeans with a summery twist. Cut from a lightweight fabric with a touch of stretch, this pair’s snug (but not tight) fit keeps your look crisp, while the ecru colour is ideal for sunny days both home and abroad. On top go for similarly pale colours or contrast with a rich block colour – navy is a good option here. Still not convinced? Well, Steve McQueen was a big fan of white denim, so we think that settles it.
Little white buy

“These WHITE jeans are green –
they’re made with cotton from
more sustainable sources”
