The latest men's coordination techniques & recommended items for gray jeans!

Gray jeans have a monotone look that is different from the faded indigo color, giving them a rugged, urban nuance. While the high versatility of the colorless jeans is appealing, for better or worse, the light tone may give a bland and drab impression depending on the coordination. In this issue, we focus on gray jeans, and introduce some tips on how to wear them, men’s coordination from overseas as a reference, and recommended items from popular brands!

Gray Jeans for a smart expression of casual adult dressing

Gray jeans have the potential to be worn with all kinds of outfits. For those who prefer urban styling that does not look too formal, gray jeans are the perfect item. Compared to blue jeans, gray jeans have less of a workwear feel, but they also have a tasteful atmosphere due to their faded color, making them a good match for the vintage clothing that has recently become popular.

However, since gray jeans are a versatile item with a modest statement, there is a risk of giving a bland impression depending on the coordination. From here, we will introduce stylish coordination techniques as well as the outfits of fashionable people wearing gray jeans.

How to Wear Gray Jeans (1)

Choose gray jeans in a baggy silhouette, which are currently the focus of attention, to create a coordinated look with a trendy feel. For footwear, choose a pair of rugged boots that won’t lose out to the thick denim for an easy balance. For a more mature look, adjust the length of the jeans by rolling them up as shown in the snap shot below, and finish off with a clean look around the feet.

The choice of a tapered silhouette that is not too tight-fitting is also a good one.

The white shirt and gray jeans, both monotone items and popular staples, are a perfect match. By building the axis of the coordinate with this top and bottom, a beautiful impression is secured and a smart and good-looking outfit is created. If you wear a white shirt with a delicate broadcloth fabric, you may feel that your taste is not quite right, so it is recommended to wear a white shirt with a coarser, more casual look, such as an Oxford shirt.
