DENIM GUIDE:
THE BEST JEANS FOR MEN

The essential fits, newest washes and latest innovations in denim, plus fresh ways to style your jeans for spring

Great jeans start with the fit

Whether you wear jeans every day or they’re strictly for weekends, chances are they play an important role in your wardrobe. Finding the perfect pair can feel like a never-ending quest, but M&S denim is here to save you the slog. Our men’s denim collection is based around five fits – straight, slim, tapered, loose and skinny. The straight fit is the most classic, making it a versatile wardrobe staple. Our slim fit is streamlined, with classic five-pocket styling. The tapered fit narrows towards to the ankle, making it flattering for all body shapes, while our relaxed loose fit is roomy throughout the leg. The skinny fit has a sleek – rather than spray-on – design, ideal for a smarter look. Our jeans come in both shorter and longer lengths to suit various heights, with a wide selection available in Big & Tall sizes, too.

We’re lightening up our denim range for spring/summer 2022, with ecru and light grey joining the line-up. For perfectly worn-in jeans without the wait, our vintage washes look great straight off the hanger – and we’ve added a lighter vintage wash as well as tapered and loose fits for a more relaxed look. Our denim is designed with comfort front of mind, from our super-stretchy 360°-flex jeans to our water-repellent Stormwear jeans that won’t get soggy if you get caught in the rain. Plus, all our denim represents brilliant value for money, with pieces such as our £17.50 regular-fit jeans and our premium-quality Japanese selvedge jeans that retail at £49.50, a fraction of the cost you’ll find elsewhere.

Choose kinder denim

Finding the right fit and style is essential, but planet-friendly production is crucial, too. We believe that denim shouldn’t cost the earth – that’s why our menswear denim collection for 2022 is underpinned by sustainability. All our denim is made using responsibly sourced cotton and, working with Jeanologia, we’ve reduced our water consumption throughout the denim-making process, therefore using less of our planet’s vital resources.
