Straight, Slim or Skinny?

By Degenerate || @Alvin_Louis || Brought to you by @Vansphmanila

Buying a pair of jeans has always been tough for me. Buying the right pair of jeans always is. You have to find the right fit, the right style. How many of us asked questions like “What is straight cut jeans?” or “What’s the difference between ‘slim’ and ‘skinny’ jeans?” Here’s what the internet says:

Straight Cut


Straight-cut jeans typically sit at your natural waist and are slim through the seat and thighs. The fabric should skim your silhouette and the leg should be long, tapering off gradually and slightly at the ankle. This style of jean is classic, and if you have the body to wear them, straight-cut jeans can pretty much be paired with anything.

The difference between Slim and Skinny jeans after the cut.

Slim vs. Skinny

Skinny jeans taper down at the bottom, and are close fitting all throughout. Slim fit usually has a wider bottom than skinny jeans, but are still close fitting against the leg


A slim jean follows a form-fitting pattern, which results in the slim jean cut silhouette. The leg pattern is not necessarily closely tapered. Although the silhouette contours naturally around the shape, the jean does have added room.

The jean silhouette cut for the skinny jean uses a pattern that is contoured to the body resulting in a closely tapered leg. Designers have extended the length of the inseam to the skinny jean to make it a trendy silhouette.

I hope this blog post helped you. The best way to get help is to go to the nearest Vans Concept Store near you. They have the best straight, slim and skinny jeans. Very nice fabric at a reasonable price. Their staff know their stuff too – very nice, knowledgeable and helpful.

    if else fails you can still buy straight cut and have them “slimmed” with your mananahi.
