HOW DO MEN’S JEANS SIZES WORK?

Thank you for visiting talhasakrani.com, Talha Sakrani's Men's and Women's Fashion Blog.

In this blog, I will explain how men’s jeans sizes work!

Long gone are the days when people frequented the mall to get their fashion fix. The shoppers of today utilize the convenience and versatility of e-commerce to buy all their fashion essentials. In fact, the eCommerce industry for clothing and apparel is projected to reach a value of $1 trillion by 2025. Yup, that’s trillion, with a T.

A big reason for this popularity is because online fashion retailers offer lenient return and exchange policies. So, you can buy with the confidence that your product will be exchanged in case you’re not satisfied with its fit.

Exchange policies are a literal godsend when it comes to men’s fashion jeans. You see, it’s
easy to get shirts, outerwear, and footwear online- what with their simple small, medium, and large sizing protocols. But buying jeans from an eCommerce store is where things get a little tough.

We can all agree that men’s jeans sizes are more complicated than they need to be, right? In fact, I’ve rarely ever seen the men’s fashion jeans of two different brands being sized the same. And, what’s up with the two numbers on the size tag? Why can’t it be as simple as shirt sizing?

Well, today, I’ll take you through a comprehensive guide to how men’s jeans sizes work and
how you can save yourself from the hassle of sending your jeans for an exchange just because you didn’t like their fit.

So, without any further ado, let’s jump right in!

How Does Men’s Jeans Sizes Work?

The size tag on men’s jeans gives you two numbers that are separated by an x. The number
before the x signifies the waist for which the jeans are made. The number after the x tells you the inseam length of the jeans. So, for example, a pair of jeans with the size 32 x 30 means they are designed for 32-inch waists and are 30-inch long at the inseam.

Two important things are of note here. Firstly, notice how I said the first number determines the waist for which the pants are made. You see, this is not the actual measurement of the jean’s waistband.

In fact, the difference between the first number and the actual length of the jean’s waistband can be up to 3 inches, depending on the fit and brand. Jeans are worn below the person’s natural waistline. Here, the body normally gets wider. So, jeans manufacturers design a longer waistband for that specific waist size.

If you’re unsure what your natural waist length is, here is a detailed guide on how you can
measure it.

The second thing of note here is the second number is a measurement of the pant’s inseam. This is the technical term for the distance between the jean’s crotch area and its bottom opening. In contemporary fashion, men wear jeans that reach just above their ankles. So, you can determine your ideal inseam length by measuring the distance between your upper thigh and your ankles. If you’re planning to do a cuff fold on your jeans, make sure you add 2 inches to the inseam. You see, cuffed jeans should never go above the ankle and a 2-inch cuff looks super.

If you’re planning to buy jeans from Europe, simply add 16 to your waist size to convert your US men’s jeans size to European men’s jeans size.

What are the Different Types of Jeans Fits for Men?

While the size tag of your jeans will tell you about its waist and length, you’ll need to check its fit guide to get a better idea of how well it’ll hug your hips and thighs. Men’s jeans sizes usually boast six types of fits:

Skinny Fit

Unless a brand has a super-skinny fit, these will be the narrowest fitted jeans. Skinny jeans
will be like a second skin and hug both your thighs and legs.

Tapered Fit

A tapered fit is also known as a carrot fit. This is because just like a carrot, the jeans are
wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. You can expect about 1-2 inches of breathing
space towards the hips, while the jeans will tightly hug your calves and ankles.

Slim Fit

Slim-fit jeans offer the best of both worlds. They’re neither too tight nor too baggy. Offering a super smart fit, slim-fit jeans offer 1-2 inches of extra space throughout.

Regular Fit

Also known as a straight or classic fit, regular fit jeans are a little towards the baggy side of
things. They’ll normally offer 3-4 inches of room throughout the pant’s length.

Bootcut Fit

Bootcut fit jeans boast a smart fit towards the seat and they start to widen as you go down
the jean’s length. Their ankle is usually flared up to give that cowboy-like look.

Relaxed Fit

Finally, come relaxed-fit jeans. These are the baggiest jeans of any brand. Loose throughout, they almost look oversized. Make sure you wear an oversized tee or shirt over such pants to complement the look.

Final Thoughts

Getting jeans online can be tough. Their sizing is a lot more complicated than other types of
apparel and almost all brands make different types of jeans. Brands try to alleviate this
situation by offering generous return and exchange policies, but it still can be a hassle to get your jeans shipped out and wait for the return parcel. So, I hope my guide to men’s jeans sizes helps in this regard.

Thank you for reading this brief till the end. I would love to hear any misadventures you may have had regarding jeans sizes and getting the wrong size. See you in the comments

Don’t worry, we still have sunny days to enjoy, but as the cold months approach (at least on the north side of the earth) it’s time to think about our wardrobe, and of course, I think it’s never too early to be in trend. So this time we will talk about men’s trends footwear for this new season, and of course, which boots formen are essential for this year 2022.

In this article, I will talk about the boots that cannot be missing this season in your wardrobe. I will give you some outfit tips so you can combine your boots according to the occasion and I will tell you which are my top 5 favorite boot for men brands.

Keep reading and discover the latest trend in men’s boots 2022!

Styles and types of boots

Mountain boots

Mountain boots have managed to overcome their main market (campers and climbers) and immerse themselves in the world of fashion.

Undoubtedly, these types of boots are very comfortable and protective, which is why they began to be used outside of mountain activities.

Although his strong point is undoubtedly the casual outfit. The best thing about this type of boots is that they are very flexible to combine. They go perfect with shorts, Bermudas or denim pants, and they are practical for almost any occasion since they keep you comfortable and warm. Let’s say the hiking boots are winter tennis.

Tips for choosing the best hiking boots:
  • There is nothing better than investing in quality shoes.
  • Look for thick soles.
  • Heavy-duty ankle straps.
  • Padded linings and soles.

If you decide to add these boots to your wardrobe, I assure you that they will be great allies, so don’t skimp on buying ones that will have a long life.

Brogue boots

Surely you know this type of boots, but perhaps what you do not know is its origin. Brogue boots, characterized by holes in the front, were invented by farmers looking for a practical way to drain marshy water from their shoes while out in the fields.

Today, neither the materials with which they are made nor the holes in their appearance fulfil this function, on the contrary, they are totally decorative. This style of boot is excellent for a smart casual style, such as going to the office, or to dinner with friends.

Tips for wearing Brogue Boots:
  • Use them with the same clothes with which you use your brogue shoes.
  • To go to work, you can combine them with a suit or a shirt and give it a more formal look.
  • These types of boots look great with rocker chinos and a cable knit sweater.
  • If you are looking for a more casual and trendy style, rolled-up jeans, a white t-shirt and a leather jacket is the option.

As an extra fact, in this type of boots it is considered that the more holes it has, the more informal it is, and on the contrary, the few holes are the most elegant Brogue style.

You can find this type of boot in different shades, with dark brown and black being the most elegant, while light ones go better with casual styles.

Work boots

Hiking boots are not the only ones of this style that have passed from the world of sports and hard work to the world of fashion.

The practical and durable style of work boots has earned them a place in the wardrobe of many.

Today we can find work style boots with more aesthetic than work characteristics. For example, boots of this style but without the steel cap that is essential in a work setting.

However, some of its features are preserved, such as padded ankles, abundant padding, grippy soles and waterproof finishes.

It is precisely these characteristics that make them a great option for our winter outfits.

Undoubtedly the brand that has managed to revolutionize the use of these boots is Timberland. Their Yellow Boots have been making their way into the market for years and have already conquered several catwalks.

Tips to use:
  • Consider that you have to maintain a balance in your outfit when you use these boots, a style with joggers and a hoodie works well, but do not make it look too sporty.

Chelsea Boots

If I had to choose some essential boots for this year, without a doubt I would choose Chelsea boots. These types of boots have the advantage of looking spectacular in different styles.

They look smart in a suit and casual in skinny jeans and a leather jacket. The most difficult thing when choosing your Chelsea boots will be choosing the color.

If you are a lover of the classic, the black ones are the perfect option. But if you want to prioritize matching more of your outfits, browns and tans are great.

Tips:
  • Suede Chelsea boots are beautiful, but you can only wear them in the fall, or if you live somewhere where it doesn’t rain or snow.
  • If you plan to make these types of shoes the stars of your wardrobe, rubber soles and elastic sides are the most comfortable.
  • You can find Chelsea boots with a pointed or round toe. The round one is of a much more casual style.

Top 5 best brands of Boots for men

What are the best boot brands? I get asked this question quite often. So after thinking about it, this is my TOP 5.

As I told you above, buying poor-quality shoes is the worst thing you can do. In the end, you will end up spending more money buying boots that will last you only a few months, than paying for quality boots for men that can last you years.

For the same reason, I always recommend choosing the footwear carefully. A good purchase is one that will last you and will not quickly go out of style.

So that you have a reference, these are some of my favorite brands, although, of course, they are not the only ones that have good quality and aesthetics.

  • Grenson
  • Timberland
  • of the church
  • UGG
  • Glutton

Boots Smelling Fresh - Talha Sakrani Fashion Blog for Men's Fashion and Women's Fashion

HOW TO KEEP BOOTS SMELLING FRESH?

Hey there, I would like to thank all my visitors for supporting talhasakrani.com, Talha Sakrani Men’s and Women’s Fashion Blog. Today, I’ll be giving you some tips on how to keep the boots smelling fresh. I thought that this topic is very essential for each one of us since our feet are always in our shoes most of the day.

Let me just tell you that equal parts Practical and fashionable, boots have taken over the global footwear industry like a storm. Although elevating your style with the help of this footwear is the easy part, taking proper care of your boots isn’t exactly so simple. So, unless you want a stinky situation on your hands each time you take out your favorite boots, make sure you give this guide a read. In it, I’ll be taking you through everything you’ll need to know to take care of your boots and keep them smelling fresh.

So, without any further ado, let’s dive right in!

How to Get Rid of Boot Smell?

In case you’ve already got a pair of boots that reek, here are two ways you can get rid of the
bad odor in them:

The DIY Method

In the mood for some stink-smashing DIY?

Well, here are some at-home remedies to keep the boots smelling fresh:

Leave it to the UV Rays

Do you know UV rays are great at killing any fungi, bacteria, and odors? Now, before you go
about popping your boots in the sun, make sure you apply some UV protection to them. You
see, UV rays from the sun can actually damage leather and fade it. On the other hand, the
rays from a UVC lamp don’t cause any such damage. So, you can also use this device if
you’ve got one lying around the house.

Make Your Spray Bottle Your Best Friend

A single spray bottle should be filled with 40% water and 50% alcohol. Add a few drops of authentic essential oil, such lavender or lime, and thoroughly combine. Spray the mixture in both the shoe and the spot where you keep your footwear whenever you take them off.

The Wonder of Baking Soda

Baking soda is yet another household product that is great at thoroughly eliminating foul
odors. The way to go here is to fill up a sock with baking soda and leave it inside your stinky
boots overnight. Adding the sock into the mix here isn’t necessary. However, it’ll help slash
your clean-up time since getting rid of powder from your shoe’s insoles isn’t exactly a child’s
play.

Go Commercial

If you’d rather just stick to commercial solutions to removing the bad odor from your boots, here are two things you can do:

Boot Cleaning Products

Although pricey, boot deodorizers are a sure-fire way of eliminating any sort of foul odor from your boots. They suck out any moisture buildup from the shoe and kill all those stinky bacteria. Most of them boast signature fragrances that leave your shoes smelling all fruity once you’re done spraying them. Just make sure you follow the instructional manual to the letter when using them. This will ensure you don’t end up ruining your expensive fashion boots.

New Insoles

If nothing’s really working in your quest of freshening up your old boots, consider getting new insoles. My advice here is to buy one from the manufacturer of your boots. But you can also opt for a third-party store if the original insoles cost quite a bit. In such a case, make sure you properly measure the insole to ensure the correct fit.

Tips to Keep Your Boots Smelling Fresh

Now that you know all about eliminating bad odors from your boots, here are five tips to
prevent your boots from stinking up in the first place:

Clean Feet are a Must

There’s a very high chance your dirty feet might end up stinking up your boots. So, make sure you properly wash them every day with soap. This will ensure any dead skin cells and odor-causing bacteria are killed.

Wear the Right Kind of Socks

While everyone knows that socks are essential when wearing any sort of footwear, you
should also think about the type of socks you wear. Anything made from cotton or synthetic
materials will probably absorb sweat instead of letting it evaporate. On the other hand, wool
and bamboo are great at wicking away moisture. So, consider socks made from these
materials when adorning a pair of boots.
Ditch the waterproof boots.

Unless you’re getting a pair of hiking boots, you’ll probably be better off getting non-waterproof boots. You see, waterproof shoes are all about preventing the transfer of moisture. This becomes a problem when you’re wearing everyday boots since your sweat will have no place to escape. As a result, odor-causing bacteria will start to grow inside your shoe and from there on out, it’s just stomach-churning stench.

Consider a Boot Dryer

An electronic gadget that dissipates heat to dry out boots does sound pretty amazing, no?

Well, that’s just what a boot dryer is. They come in pretty handy when you’d like your boots to be all dry for the next day. Also, did I mention how these dryers can be used to dry off your gloves, socks, and even hats? Yeah, pretty versatile, I know. So, it goes without saying that a boot dryer is a must have for any fashion boot enthusiast.

Say Yes to Non-Metallic Toe Caps

Boots with metallic toe caps tend to overheat. This extra heat will cause your feet to sweat
up. Simple physics really. Well, you can stave off such a dilemma by only getting boots with
non-metallic toe caps.

Final Thoughts

From helping you dress better to assisting you in taking care of your apparel and footwear, my goal is to provide a one-stop destination for fashion enthusiasts. This guide took you through a complete 101 of keeping your boots smelling fresh. I hope it proved to be an insightful read. Thank you for sticking till the end. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments section. Cheers!

Blues About Entertainment Biz

BY TALHA SAKRANI

I thought of TV, movies, music, modeling, or even owning a production house. I started composing music, modeling, and creating my own unique style of editing. I wanted to be there, but I wondered and daydreamed about it. I got even more tempted when my friends and parents said I should do it. It was the genesis of my life, but I was so caught up in multiple things that I could not start my journey. Suddenly, I realized that I should keep my social media accounts public and start tagging when I post. My social platforms became flush with my content, and I started to have followers in less than a month. I received my first offer from a modeling agency in 2022 for an audition in less than a year, but I couldn’t participate due to my work and other responsibilities. I thought to myself, “I wanted to break into the entertainment industry all my life, and when I got an offer, I was not able to.” Otherwise, if I were selected, I would be modeling in TV commercials, magazines, Netflix, and HULU, and most importantly, I would have achieved my dream. I will still achieve my dream, and I do recommend it to everyone. I believe in living freely and in equality, and that’s why we should have the right to know our rights and the freedom to live by them. We should live on our own terms and listen to what we would like to achieve.
