Jeans Codes for Men! 7 tips to refine your outfits!

The jean is a staple item in men’s fashion, but for some reason, many of you may have trouble getting rid of the “not quite right” feeling when you try it on. In this issue, we will introduce the key points to successfully wear a sophisticated jean jacket with specific examples of how to wear it!

The ” jean ” with various names

The abbreviation for “jean” is “jean jumper. However, “jean” is actually a Japanese word, and is generally called “jean jacket” or “denim jacket” in English-speaking countries. Originally, “jean jacket” or “denim jacket” would be closer to the original term, but the term “jean” has become common in Japan, partly because it is more convenient to use.

The jean originated in the 1930s, when Levi’s began manufacturing work jackets to go with jeans. Incidentally, as is well known among denim lovers and vintage freaks, Levi’s has gradually changed the silhouette and details since the first model released in the early 1900s. They are often discussed in four categories in order of oldest to newest: ” First,” “Second,” “Third,” and “Force. It should be noted that this distinction is a designation classified for convenience by Japanese used clothing importers, and is not an official name given by Levi’s. Incidentally, many brands use the ” third type ” as their design base, which is highly regarded in the fashion world.
