Jeans are an item that I wear almost every day, from day to night. Through the years I have gone through many different pairs as my size fluctuated, always searching for the most comfortable and simple pair that I could wear with just about any outfit. Recently, I found the brand that speaks to both of these issues, and caters to a market of men who want to wear denim not only for work, but for going out, or for sport activities where they can move around easily and still feel like they’re wearing a pair of soft trousers. Meet 34 Heritage Denim!
34 Heritage makes it their goal to provide premium denim, that is crafted to be comfortable yet still luxurious. They focus on creating modern and classic fits for men of all shapes and sizes, and complementing features so that every man wearing a pair of their denim looks proper. I was able to check out their spring collection and I picked out some of my favourite styles of denim and pants, which I have personally styled for this lookbook. The first pair here reflects a clean summer look, in a slim shape, and because this pair is created with a double sided print, they reveal a micro-houndstooth print when cuffed up.
With an extensive denim line, 34 Heritage provides several customized fits for every man out there. These include “COURAGE”, “COOL”, “CHARISMA”, “CONFIDENCE” and “HUDSON”. For the 4 pairs of denim I am featuring in this series with 34 Heritage, I will be focusing on both the COOL and COURAGE fits. COOL is the ideal tapered leg, slim fitting jean, but does not hug the leg too tightly. COURAGE provides a mid-rise, straight leg silhouette that tapers below the knee. The pair I am wearing above is a COURAGE fit, which I feel could be worn as an office-casual pant, when paired with black shoes and a blazer.
For this second pair, I opted to try out something more casual, which I have now become attached to as my every day pair of jeans. These faded grey pair of COOL fit jeans are by far the most comfortable pair of jeans I have ever worn in my entire life. They feel like I’m wearing a pair of stretchy cotton pants, nothing like stiff denim at all. As this specific pair is called the “Grey Reversed” denim, they provide an option for colour-block fun when you roll the cuff up to reveal a contrasting blue lining!
With the grey pair, I opted for a more casual, weekend look. They happened to match perfectly well with the blue top I wore, and the blue laces on my sneakers! The search for the perfect pair of grey denim is over 🙂
I am absolutely amazed at the quality and craftsmanship that goes into a pair of 34 Heritage denim. They are up there, and in fact I find have better features than some other designer denim brands. I don’t know of one pair of denim that I’ve tried that feels as comfortable as a pair of 34H, and I give you my word on that. Check out their website— www.34Heritage.com — for more information on the brand culture, styles offered this season, and where you can buy a pair!
Stay tuned for part 2 of this series featuring 2 other pairs of denim, coming your way on Sass & Leather very soon!
