Arguably the most popular style of trousers, jeans are an absolute classic of men's fashion. You will have to try very hard to find someone that doesn't own a pair of jeans in today's world. The huge amount of choice makes it more important than ever to purchase a good quality pair.

If you're looking for some great jeans that will last you for years, as well as being ethically made, then Nudie are for you. Despite only being founded in 2001, the relatively young company has grown to become one of the most respected brands around.

Nudie Jeans

It all began in 2001 when Maria Erixon started Nudie Jeans Co. The brand produces denim products with the ethos that jeans are an ever changing item of clothing that gains more character the longer we wear and repair them. On this basis, Nudie Jeans are made using 100% organic cotton and offer a free repair service. They even re-sell second-hand products to promote recycling and sustainability.

Nudie Jeans sell a wide variety of clothing products, ranging from a classic pair of jeans, all the way to denim jackets and knitwear jumpers. Despite their expansive range of clothes, Nudie will always be most famous for their denim trousers. In terms of different designs, the Grim Tim men's nudie jeans are arguably the most classic you can find.

Nudie Grim Tim Black

Nudie black jeans are one of Nudie's most popular jean styles, and the Grim Tim has a regular slim fit design with a normal rise. The trousers begin with a traditional straight cut and go on to taper in the bottom part of the leg. They have button flies and narrow leg holes. Although these are traditionally a slim fit, in comparison to the super skinny jeans you can get today, they are relatively straight cut.

For a smart casual look, wear your jeans rolled up, and combine your jeans with a sweatshirt and an oversized jacket. Dress up the look with a pair of brogue shoes. We have opted for the Dr Martens black brogues to add a little edge to the outfit. Boiling sunshine once day, rain the next. Lightweight jackets are perfect for this transition weather. They also make great pieces when layering an outfit, or for adding a splash of colour.

Nudie Grim Tim Navy

If you're looking for a more classic colour, then a pair of navy jeans is definitely the way to go. The good thing about this colour is that there is a wide variety of shades, tones and designs. Also, whereas black jeans fade and go an unpleasant grey colour, fading navy jeans can actually add new and exciting dimensions to their look.

For a more casual outfit, combine your trousers, with a plain coloured jumper. Desert boots are the perfect shoe style to compliment an outfit that you want to dress up a little. Opt for a pair that compliments your jean colour- colour clashing will do you no favours.

Get your hands on a pair of good quality desert boots. Much like jeans, investing in a good quality pair of shoes will be beneficial in the long run. The light tan or navy colour is your best choice with a navy jeans.

Team your blue jeans with a casual white T-shirt, for a light colour palette that will act as the base of your look. Layer this with a black leather jacket, to add a darker contrast to your outfit. To compliment the lighter shades of your look, throw in a pair of minimal white trainers. If you're worried about getting them dirty, why not carry a pack of Crep Wipes with you?

Nudie Grim Tim Distressed Blue

Ripped jeans are currently one of the most in-style trends at the moment, worn for their casual style, but scrutinised by all dads at their expense of a dad joke. The problem with most ripped jeans, however, is that the more you wear them, the bigger the rips get until you have more rip than actual jean. Our solution to this is to invest in a quality distressed pair. Distressed jeans will give you the same look but with a longer lasting effect. Nudie jeans are built with wear and tear in mind, so we reckon these are the perfect pair.
