A classic piece in any modern wardrobe, the original bootcut jean is very much still in style. Bootcuts are generally designed with low rise toplines that sit at the waist (although you can find high rise designs) and narrow cuts through the hips and thighs, widening to provide a slight flare towards the hemline. Bootcut jeans are the perfect denim to fit over rugged work boots and dapper Chelsea boots, and are the jeans of choice for those who don’t fancy squeezing into stretch skinny jeans.
Bootcut vs. Straight Leg
If you’re weighing up the decision, there’s really very little difference between bootcut jeans and straight leg denim. Just like bootcuts, straight legs fit narrowly to the hips and thighs but they don’t provide that gentle flare at the bottom. From thigh to ankle, they remain the same width, meaning a slightly closer, tight fit in the thigh - great for tall guys with long legs.
Choosing your style
When shopping for your bootcut jeans, there’s plenty to consider. Do you prefer a button fly or a zip fly? Do you love the effect of ripped, destroyed and distressed denim with holes, or smart dark or black washes in premium selvedge denim to be broken in over time? Do you want jeans with stretch for extra comfort?
Other elements to consider when choosing the perfect bootcut jeans are whether you want a style with flap pockets (for a more cargo-inspired style) or classic-style pockets. And do you feel bold enough for vibrant coloured bootcut jeans, or would you rather a clean, modern white pair? If you’re worried about finding jeans for big thighs, you can choose a slightly wider leg opening (we stock jeans with 20” leg openings and 21” leg openings among others). In fact, when it comes to sizes we’re loaded up with options, from 34x34 to 30x34, 29 inch leg jeans, and larger sizes including size 38 and size 40.
When it comes to buying bootcut jeans, the choices are almost endless. You can even pick up fleece-lined jeans these days for a bit of extra warmth when the temperatures plummet.
Build your look
When it comes to building the best bootcut look, it’s hard to beat a good pique cotton polo (some new-season styles feature pattern panels) and black bomber jacket. Finish off with a smart pair of tan brogues and you’ve got a recipe for smart/casual success.
