Even though every magazine and newspaper is pushing skinny jeans as the must have of the moment the simple fact of the matter is that not everyone looks good in a pair of skintight jeans. Another style that is far more forgiving is the boyfriend cut which is tight around the rear but relaxed in the legs. The best ones around at the moment are Yanuk Worker Boyfriend (see above), Hudson Boyfriend and Miss Sixty Perkins.
It’s about time Levi’s got in on the act with a pair of this season’s big trend – boyfriend jeans. After all they were the originators of this look when women started wearing their boyfriend’s old 501s. Brands like Current/Elliott picked up on this and created their own versions and now Levi‘s returned the favor by copying them back with this pair of 501 Boyfriend Cut jeans which are available at LevisStore.com for $78.
Levis the 501 Boyfriend cut jeans are the perfect throw on anytime jeans, that give you room to truly make them your own. Take a closer look of the $78.00 jeans. Click on photo below for a larger view.
Note to the Fellas: Kanye West rocked a Levis denim jacket.

Double denim is a tricky look to pull off but Kanye West demonstrates below how to do it with style – make sure that the jacket and jeans are different shades of blue.
Looks like some of his emulators, who too often dismiss Levis for newer, “cooler” brands, will find themselves rummaging a thrift store bin to find one very soon. Don’t you just love the irony of trends and celebrity style…

How To Properly Wear The Boyfriend Jean
As the boyfriend jeans rise in popularity (partially due to a revolt by tired drainpipe denim wearers), we are going to see the baggy, ill fitting look more and more often. The trouble with this is the Katie Holmes type women of the world seem utterly hell bent on giving this cut of denim a sullied name.
I’m no ranging fan of this cut, but I can recognize that it is possible for it to be done well. Here are a few bits to keep in mind while sizing up the possibility of wearing this type of denim:
- The leg may be loose, but keep them reasonably fitted around your bum; you don’t want your rear looking like a sack of wrinkles.
- Cuff them for a country look, but keep in mind this is extremely informal.
- Avoid a cropped length without a cuff; loose jeans that are too short for your legs spell instant visual disaster.
- Experiment with rips, tears and colors but keep the look in control as to avoid over-trending.
- Plan to wear streamlined footwear like thin brogues and ankle boots; don’t go with strappy sandals that scream over thought, over styled.
