Denim for Men – Tips For The Coming Summer

Denim Shirts- For men 2013

History of Denim

The denim material has been around for a long time. It’s amazing how this powerful fabric still remains the most popular material out there. Ever wondered where the word came from? It’s a French word De Nimes, which means from Nimes, where the first denim fabrics were made. Research shows from 2007, the worldwide denim market equalled USD 51.6 billion. Wow hey. Have you ever thought where most denim is produced?  Over 50% of denim is produced in Asia, specifically China, India, and Bangladesh.

It’s very rare to find no one wearing denim anytime of the year let alone age. Do we ever get bored with our denim wear. Yes we can and we do. So how do you alter your existing denim attire or look for 2013. The trend in denim now is all about layering and adding accessories to your jeans.

Denim Shirt With Blazer

As you can see in the featured image you notice that a trend for 2013 is to wear a denim shirt with a suit or blazer. A classic denim shirt will relax the tailored suit jacket. By placing it under the linen-blend blazer. This is now redefining tailoring to a whole new level.

Denim with Denim

Personally no matter who you are, I think double denim is an overkill. If you want to get someone off balance then go for it. By teaming it up with some accessories you can soften the overpowering of double denim. You can do this with braces or adding a hat to the combination, like the guy below. The fact that he chooses two different denim colour tones also softens the look.

Dressed up accessories certainly will update your denim look. Braces, ties, scarves or chunky chains certainly give an edgy feel to your jeans. Your accessories expresses about how much fun you can add to your denim.

Blazers always go well with your denim. It’s just about choosing your colour. Dark color blazers look great with light denim. You can add a tie for that more formal casual flare.
