One of the modern day leaders in denim design, G-star is always cutting edge when it comes to design and innovation. My favourite fit at the moment is the Type C 3D Super Slim, which is perfectly contoured to the leg with oversized lower back pockets and a dropped crotch. It’s perfect for the slouchy look on a slim silhouette.

Coming straight out of the UK and one of the newest additions to our stable of brands, Superdry has been in high demand since launching at Myer thanks to it’s Americana and Japanese inspired product. With a denim offering that perfectly compliments their successful outerwear and sweat collections, Superdry offer great standard fits. I’m loving the Corporal rinse wash denim shirt, which gives a sharp double denim look when paired back with a nice slim jean.

The most iconic denim brand in the world and the original inventor of the blue denim jean, Levi’s ® is a household denim name. With such an amazing and extensive history in denim production behind the brand, Levi’s ® are continually evolving their range to reflect the needs and wants of today’s customers. My favourite styles at the moment are the slimmer profiles – the 510 (skinny), 511 and 513 (slim) – as they fit the body so well and feature a comfortable stretch denim, making them feel great from the very first wear.

Riders by Lee:
Another traditional on-point denim brand which delivers a great range of fits for all men, Riders by Lee is an easy and reliable brand with simple style grading system: R0, R1, R2 and R3, with R0 being the skinniest and R3 the widest. I’m loving the R2 slim and narrow jean which suits almost everyone. Lee also do amazing chino pants which are still definitely on trend at the moment and work back perfectly with a denim shirt if you want to work denim into your look without wearing jeans.

Calvin Klein Jeans:
Having spent eleven years working at Calvin Klein jeans prior to my current role at Myer, I have seen first hand the strong focus the brand maintains on fit and style when it comes to denim. With styles ranging from wide through to slim and tapered legs in a variety of washes and colours, the Calvin Klein denim collection offers a wide selection that is suitable for all men. Known for their iconic advertising campaigns (Brooke Shields, Kate Moss, Mark Wahlberg and now Justin Bieber are just some of the famous names to have represented the brand over the years), Calvin Klein Jeans continue to provide the ultimate in wearable and reliable denim while also remaining relevant to a constantly evolving customer.
