As drainpipes become ubiquitous, T-shirts, jumpers and trainers are being made with slim jeans in mind. Straight cut jeans end up covering too much of the shoe and wearing tight t-shirts with wide jeans leave you with a balloon-like silhouette. There now seems to be a gap in the market for those who don’t (or in my case, can’t) wear super-tight Cheap Monday jeans but don’t want anything approaching a baggy cut.
Jeans companies are taking advantage of this, releasing fits that are in between slim and straight. Canadian brand Iron Army specializes in this fit, with the best of the collection being this Hiro raw pair. It’s baggy enough to allow room to breathe, but fitted enough to match with your new streamlined t-shirt. They’re relatively cheap as well, costing just £80.
