Wearing denim at the office


Wearing denim to work?  No problem if done right.  While some may not think of jeans as a basic for the office, there are many denim friendly workplaces out there.  Most jeans suitable for office wear have four traits in common: They aren’t ripped or disheveled in appearance, they have a dark color, they are made of a thicker grade of denim (called “selvedge”) and they fit properly (straight legged vs. baggy or boot cut).

The Classic Gentleman recommends the following brands:
