Paulina Kulczycki

Jeans and sneakers, the iconic duo, are a style combination that transcend gender, age, and personal style. And if you think this combo is dull, then let us convince you otherwise. How you pair them is where the magic happens – different jeans, different sneakers, a variety of tops, and the right accessories can make this classic look anything but boring. So, how to wear jeans with sneakers without blending into the background? Let’s get into our men's style guide for some timeless inspiration for your summer outfits.

Regardless of whether your style is sophisticated, chic, smart, dandy, hipster, or casual, there are days when jeans and sneakers are all you want to wear. It’s a look that's effortless yet stylish. But as simple as it may seem, this outfit can fall flat without the right jeans. After all, the jeans are the heart of the ensemble; if they fit well, you’re halfway there to rock the style with effortless ease.

The Perfect Jeans by SANVT

After two years of meticulous design, we’ve perfected the ultimate pair of jeans. Available in light blue, washed blue, and washed black, the perfect jeans by SANVT boast a classic straight cut that flatters every body type. Handcrafted in Portugal from 13.5 oz Italian denim, these jeans blend 24% post-consumer recycled cotton with 76% Blue Seed organic cotton. Blue Seed cotton, known for its longer fibres, is softer and more durable than regular cotton. On top of that, it also uses less water and no toxic chemicals, making it far more sustainable than normal denim.

Our perfect jeans are sturdy yet comfortable, thanks to their open weave structure. For added flexibility, the waistband is cut along the weft, allowing for a natural stretch of up to 4cm. The result? Comfort without any elastane. The slightly slimmer leg pairs perfectly with your sneakers, creating a harmonious look.

Layering Look

A sleek yet simple way to style jeans with sneakers is through layering. Pair our perfect jeans in black with white sneakers, a black t-shirt, and a zipped open black zip hoodie. Add a grey beanie and a subtle necklace to complete the look. This ensemble is perfect for those warm summer evenings, with a touch of je ne sais quoi that also works during the day sans beanie and hoodie, of course.
