How To Match Jeans With ANYTHING
[0:00:00] What I love about a great pair of jeans is
that they can match almost anything in your wardrobe. But, there are some basic rules there are
some guidelines that you need to follow if you want to put together amazing outfits. In today’s video, I’m going to lay out those
rules I’m going to give you those guidelines with plenty of examples with shoes, with jackets,
with shirts, with accessories so that you can look like a million bucks when you’re
wearing jeans with anything in your closet. [Music]
So to start, let’s talk specifically about the type of jeans which are going to match
everything in your wardrobe. Number one, these jeans are going to be simple
they’re going to be a dark color; we’re talking indigo, dark blue, dark grey, black. These are blank canvas jeans these are jeans
that I can build an outfit on not in a sense of what I want to build the outfit around. This is key because if you’ve got some bright
colored jeans you’ve got some great ones with distress I know on the knee area maybe on
the back area you’ve got some shiny stones that are glued on them, I mean that’s cool
those jeans may be interesting but those are not the type I’m talking about because those
are going to draw attention to themselves. The jeans I’m talking about are going to be
the base for the outfit. Next stop, you want to get the fit right. There are five main categories of fit. We have skinny, we have slim, we have straight,
we have boot or semi loose, and then we have ultra loose. Now, I’m going to say for most men ultra loose
and skinny is not going to work for your body type. So then, we’ve got those three center categories. I find that many men can kind of go between
them, but you do want to find something that’s going to work for your body type and go with
it. So, we’ve established the type of jeans you
need to have as your base canvas, now let’s talk about balance specifically in two areas
the level of formality of the clothing you’re going to be matching with the jeans. You want to make sure that it’s about the
same going across the board. You don’t want to trade — take something
that’s ultra casual and try to mix it with something that’s formal. Also, pay attention and balance out the fit
of the clothing. You don’t want to take something that’s really
bulky and try to mix it also with something that is very sleek that is very lightweight
that has a very slim build. And speaking of balance, gentlemen, let me
introduce you to Original Grain. They’re the paid sponsor of today’s video. In case you’re not familiar with their story,
Ryan and Andrew two brothers came together with the mission to create unique timepieces
that seamlessly integrate natural hardwood and stainless steel. Gentlemen, I’ve worked with Original Grain
for almost two years and I love the fact that no two watches are the same. So let me go ahead and pull up the collection. Go through this right the Chrono, the Barrel
collection, the Classic collection, the Minimalist collection, the Brewmaster collection. Guys, they’re a great company. And I know that you guys love them because
you send me testimonials you send me emails saying, Antonio, I took a chance I went over
and I grabbed it with that discount code I’m putting down in the description and I got
a great watch and I’m wearing it I’m getting compliments I love it. Guys, go use that discount code. Oh, and by the way, all those collections
I talked about let me know down in the description what your favorite watches are and if I’ve
got some extras you guys know I love sending them out. All right. So, we’ve established that you’ve got the
right type of jeans and that you understand the importance of balance. Now, let’s talk about building outfits. So, whenever you’ve got those base jeans and
you’re looking at the first piece you’re going to match with them, go to your shoes go to
your foundation of your outfits. And the type of shoes you select is really
going to dictate the formality and the overall feel of the outfit. I stick with shoes because I think this is
where a lot of men spend a lot of money in their wardrobe and I think it’s just a great
place to start with your foundation. So, how this would work in practice let’s
say I have a dark pair indigo jeans, I would match them with these boots right here these
dress boots. They’ve got the suede, they’ve got the wingtips,
they’ve got the broguing in them. This right here is going to dictate to me
that I can wear up to a sports jacket, I can wear simply a nice dress shirt with this,
I could even dress it down with a polo with those jeans. But, let’s say I’m going to go with one of
my go-to favorites you guys have seen this. I could also wear this shirt with it as well,
that would work. So, the next thing I chose was the shirt. Now, I’m putting this down over here I’m
going to grab a sports jacket. You guys have probably seen this combination
before, the blue right here with this. And so, imagine it with that indigo pair of
jeans. If I want to go for a little bit of contrast
I go with this shirt instead with the — with the dark colored jeans you would see how that
– I would put that one together. Now, taking that same indigo pair of jeans,
but I want to change things up. Let’s say I want to start the base with this
or maybe I wanted to go with this right here I wanted to bring in some suede loafers. I could go with either one of these and I
could match it with a shirt like this and all of a sudden I’ve got something that I
don’t have to wear a jacket for. Although let’s say it’s a little bit cooler
we’re entering fall I could bring in a jacket something like this although if I brought
in this type of suede texture right here I would tell you guys that I would probably
not wear these because I’ve already got suede in the jacket. Wearing with this with the Indigo you start
to see the combination right there. [0:05:07]
Now, let’s say I wanted to take those same indigo jeans and I wanted to dress them up. Well, I would start off with a pair of dress
shoes. Again, I’m going to go with a color I’m not
going to go with black. I think that oxblood I think dark brown is
going to work better with the dark blue which is indigo. If I were to go with a pair of black jeans,
I could possibly wear black dress shoes, but I do feel that black dress shoes should be
reserved more for formal. And so, I like going with the color like oxblood
or dark brown. And then, I would bring in a combination like
this. I’ve got this shirt, look at that color right
in there mixed with this along with this right here and this whole combination right there. Really quick let’s talk about accessories. I do feel since jeans are casual, I try to
keep my accessories a bit more casual. If your accessories are too dressy, so you’ve
got belt buckles which are too shiny or you’ve got ties which are made from silk and in a
sense look like they should go with a suit or a casual suit, I don’t really find that’s
the best combination. I gravitate towards ties which are going to
have more texture to them whether that be sewn into the tie or it’s just simply the
way it’s built and the way it looks. I think that these work better with jeans
in general. When it comes to belts, I’m looking for belts
that are going to be, you know, aren’t going to be half as much of a luster are going to
just simply work better be more casual in their nature. All right, gentlemen, hopefully this video
motivated you to go out there take your jeans and put together some great outfit combinations. If you want more, go check the support article
down in the description. I am going to put together more outfits in
that support article, so if you’re like, Antonio, you just talked about a few in today’s video. I know I try to keep these videos within a
certain length, but if you want more over at RealMenRealStyle.com I’ve got tons of information
for you. And, gentlemen, don’t forget, go check out
Original Grain. They’re a great sponsor. For two years I’ve been talking about their
watches, I’ve been wearing their watches. And I mean it’s a great company. I know this because you guys send me e-mails,
you’ve sent me letters talking about how you purchased one and you get compliments you
love the way it looks it’s just a great overall watch to add to your collection. Gentlemen, take care. I’ll see you in the next video. [Music]

  2. I've been watching your videos and visiting your website for almost a year at this point and I have to thank you. I am a 17 year old junior in high school and when I found your videos I was a computer nerd that felt like kind of an outcast and wore t-shirts and cargo shorts with running shoes every day to school, even in the cold NJ winters. Now I'm the computer nerd with style and confidence. The first video I saw was the "dress your body type" video and I have gone back to watch your older videos and have watched every new video since. The first day I went to school with style started a little strange because my friends made jokes like "oh you look like such a dad" (because I was wearing chinos, a tucked polo and boots) It was the first time they saw my in clothes like that but when they said that I remembered back to what you said, "people will get used to it". So I stuck with it. They still joke with me sometimes with the same joke but I now take it as I'm a more mature person than they are. But back to my first day, I got tons of complements from girls (mission accomplished), from guys (which was surprising) and some teachers (who, in my opinion, I dressed better than. Not that it's a contest, even though I would have won had it been.) Anyway, I I have to thank you again because I see you as a virtual mentor and I wouldn't have gained the confidence that I have now without your videos and your articles. Thank you. To answer your "whats your favorite watch" question, I love the Ebony and Gold watch from the minimalist collection with the wood on the inside.

  3. Thanks Antonio for the great video! For my career field, we wear jeans for day to day operations around the office. Your video gave me the knowledge on how to dress better than just a polo and gave me some inspiration!

  4. I do not even own a single pair of jeans… I mostly wear chinos, military uniform pants or suit pants. I have not even tried on a pair of jeans in years… Also the Alterra rosewood/silver would be my choice of all the Original Grain watches. I like the red of the rosewood and it would fit my style of mostly blue chinos and blazers as well as with the red in many of my ties and burgundy dress-shoes or monk-strap shoes. Also there is "something happening" in the watch, it is not like "The Minimalist" that is nice on its own, but it is more attention-grabbing and adventurous in design. I bet it would also fit blue jeans but I do not own any…

  5. Antonio – great video as usual! But I do have a tip. I think it would be helpful at times like 4:30 in the video where it would be helpful see the different outfits with jeans (rather than just grabbing a few shirts and a jacket. I feel like it would be easier for some people to visualize – similar to what Jose does in his videos. I think this will take your videos to the next level!

  6. I really enjoy your channel, for years I thought I was the only guy that understands the importance of style and image. My mother taught me how to dress at a young age. If you have any watches available I'd be excited to have one, any style they're very unique.

  7. Love the wood texture, and amazing to se it into a watch! I like many of them, in particular the ones where the wood veins are visible, like The Barrel whiskey espresso https://originalgrain.eu/products/barrel-espresso-whiskey-distressed-brown-italian-leather or the classic rosewood.

  8. I love the brewmaster chrono and the whiskey barrel watches. I'm still building my wardrobe so I can't afford anything from Original Grain but I love their stuff. If you do have any extras, I would love to have anything your willing to give.

  9. I love this channel and the app, you've helped me learn so much about style and how to build outfits. My favorite watch is the Ebony/Matte Black minimalist watch with the metal face. It is sleek and could go great with a lot of outfits, for me probably some brown wingtips with a darker pair of jeans or slacks. Then finish it with a well balanced dress shirt. Again love all of the content Antonio its amazing!

  10. The minimalist watches are my favorite, could use a a new watch too, I have to wear wrist wear to hide a tattoo at work. But I LOVE watches

  11. Antonio, I like the results of my experiment. Just for curiosity, I went to Original Grain Watch site through your link and I also pulled them up on my own. I compared prices side by side and discovered that your link was the exact same price as on the site I pulled up separately (I was expecting a markup to offset the discount) and in fact did have the RMRS discount that was not available on the site I pulled up on my own. To me, that credits volumes to your character. You are an honest guy and I like that. Oh, and the watch I like is the Sapele Matte Black. And just like Wayne in "Wayne's World", One day it will be mine.

  12. Antonio, you have an amazing sense of style. One of the most stylish guy over youtube. You know so much about style, color combination, matching patterns. Have you ever thought of putting in the videos your pics instead of pics taken from the internet? Kind of look book. Let us know, compliments.

  13. As a kid I was husky and highly insecure about it so my go to fit of jeans were carpenter (or ultra loose as described in this video). When I got to high school and got a little bit trimmer I started to pay attention more to my style. At first I was looking more at color but didn't really know much about fits. Where my inspiration came from was seeing guys who didn't look good in their jeans. Small, skinny guys wearing carpenter fits. Big guys wearing skinny jeans (like Jonah Hill in Superbad), or even those God awful rhinestone jeans. After playing with with different fits and colors the realization came to me, if you're wearing a great pair of jeans that are perfect for you, people will notice everything else that sticks out in your wardrobe. In other words, when I was wearing a good looking pair of jeans people would notice my stylish watch, my colorful clean collared shirt, or even just the way I wore my hair. Because the jeans were no longer the eyesore of my wardrobe, people appreciated the other things I wore. So when building my look nowadays that's what I strive for, taking attention away from my jeans. Might not be for everybody but it's been working for me for quite some time.

    I checked it the Original Grain and the Brewmaster Chrono Leather is a gorgeous watch!

  14. Formal dress is being relinquished to special occasions, nice dark jeans is the new accepted style in a lot of social circles. I like any from the Minimalist collection because it has the only size right for my wrist. Would love to sport one if you have extra.

  15. I am a huge fan of the classic rosewood chrome. I think it's the right size as well as like the the striking look of the reddish rosewood against the chrome bracelet. I also love the fact that this watch is nice enough for the office, but could be dressed down. The size of the classic collection is also perfect. At 43mm to me that is the right size. Nothing too big that is going to overpower the wrist, but just enough that it does stand out. An absolutely beautiful watch that makes a subtle statement.

  16. Liked the video Antonio!!!! I keep finding myself drawn to the ALTERRA CHRONOGRAPH
    AVIATOR over at Original Grain it looks so COOL & FUNCTIONAL!!!

  17. Is there a channel for more style with a focus on Billabong style fashion? While I think Antonio is great for general tips and formalwear tips, I sometimes juet cant connect with his video topics. Any help?

  18. I was just looking for this information. I was in dire need of replacing jeans and found dark rinse jeans on sale, in the right size and fit. I'm still working on whether shirts should be tucked or not, and your video has helped a lot with that. I've started wearing mostly polos with a few button ups mixed in. Your videos have helped me immensely. My absolute favorite watch that Original Grain has is the Rosewood/Matte Black. Maybe I've just not had well made metal bands, but they always pull my arms hairs so I only buy leather bands.

  19. I know you say don't match extremes but what if I wear jeans with a button down shirt and vest? Sometimes in the fall or spring it is nice to have another layer. I don't think the vest is as fancy as a suit jacket. Do you think this is ok?

  20. Hey Antonio, I'm a big fan of wearing a watch. Problem is most watches are made for people who are right handed and wear the watch on the left wrist, meaning the crown is on the right. I'm a left handed and wear my watches on my right wrist. Do you know of any companies that make good watches for left handed people??

  21. Perfect timing!

    I am currently on the hunt for some new jeans, and your video arrived just on time, and could not have been any better.

    Thank you for the great tips, I have learnt a lot from the points mentioned.

    I will make sure to purchase a few dark, essential, pairs of denim.

    I really like the look of 'The Minimalist – Zebrawood / Rosegold' as well as the 'Alterra Chrono – Burl Wood / Silver', which is a more bold option and is definitely unique and will be a great piece to have on my wrist.

    Excellent content as always!

    Keep up the great work Antonio.

  22. The Redline and Brewmaster chrono are my favorite OG models at the moment. I hope to buy one of them someday.

  23. And they are less expensive and more environmentally friendly.

    Perfect complement to a pair of gray dockers and a pair of stone-colored, straight dockers.

  24. I like the consept of original grain, specially Rose gold from minimal collection,it would go great with my wardrobe 🙂
    Consider me if you have an extra one!~

  25. Antonio, I'm wondering if you could make something like a color guide for men. I think color is equally important to fabric and functionality, yet many men seem to pay little to no attention to the colors they wear. You can have the best tailored suit, made from the best material, yet if you are e.g. very light skinned and the suit is light gray, it can give you a grayish complexion and make you look sick. I think many people don't really understand how colors work, what colors they can/should wear, how to combine colors etc.

  26. Came for a jeans video but now considering buying a watch! Hahaha. The Ebony Wood/Matte Black looks good but its out of stock! And the "email me when available" shows that it will be available June 25? :O

  27. Hmm,if Original Grain continues this path,the sky is tle limit.Every couple months I change my mind on the favourite,they are so nice.Guys,check out the new mahogany/gold one,that is one hell of a watch,it seems like a really versatile piece (maybe i'm biased,because i'm a huge gold fan,but still,not a sponsored coment 😀 ) Go OG!!!

  28. Hey Antonio! I'm always struggling to match my shoes with different pants. I have a pair of blue Chelsea boots, leather brown boots and casual black linen shoes. The thing is that most of the time I need to buy skinny or slim fit jeans, because my body type require too big straight pants and the legs always look loose and the shoes don't look good. What should I do? Look for a tailor to adjust the straight jeans or just keep the skinny jeans?

  29. Very informative video Antonio, thanks. The rose gold zebrawood has to be my favourite for its elegant and simplistic design. Keep it up.

  30. I really like this video Antonio, I have a pair of blue indigo jeans and a semi casual dark brown shoes that I think its going to look great. I just need to find light colors shirts like the light blue that you often show on your videos.

  31. Antonio, you should be the model of the outfits and show how they look. I get what you are trying to do in this video, but watching the whole outfits put together would be a lot more useful and visually powerfull

  32. Hey man, dig the Classic Rosewood/ Matte Black. Don't see much rosewood here Down Under. Cheers from Cliffy.

  33. Antonio,

    I came across your YouTube videos almost a year ago and have been enjoying them each day after work. They have been educational, entertaining, and fun. I have learned so much from watching your videos. I have been looking to step up my style for some time to go with my physical transformation. I have been exercising, eating healthier meals, and in the process I have lost 13 lbs in the last 2 months. My oldest daughter is getting married next month and I have been looking for a watch that will compliment my grey suit. I love the Original grain watches, especially The Barrel Mohagany/Silver style. It is a beautiful unique watch that would be perfect with my suit and many other outfits. If you have any left I would love one. Thanks again for the great videos and education on style.


  34. This channel changed my way of thinking about my presentation. I'm ex-military as well and have been lost for seemingly my whole life. I knew what it took but never felt I had the means to take myself to that point. Not anymore. I'm 30 now and it's never too late change myself. Until I lose this weight, I would like to look good. Can you do a series on making the larger gentleman? I watched the one about body types but I feel there's more to it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

  35. it's kind of hard for me to buy jeans because I'm built with a big torso and chicken legs so there always baggy on me and it looks funny.

  36. Good afternoon! I am obssessed with the Alterra Chrono "Redline" and "The Marc". The tones match my wardrobe and skin tone. I've had my eye on Original Grain for a while now. Would love to start my collection with either one of these fine timepieces. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

  37. One of your best videos, yet! You really packed that one with loads of helpful information. Thanks for introducing me to Original Grain. I love their Minimalist Collection, especially the ebony/matte black or the zebra wood/rose gold with the white face. I have never found a bracelet watch that fits comfortably, even though I like the look; I always end up back at the classic leather strap.

  38. One of my favorite, Original Grain watch collection has to be "The Minimalist" collection. Great Job with the videos Antonio, props from California!!

  39. Gentleman, I'd like to hear all of your opinions on sneakers. I don't know why, but I'm not particularly in love with shoes because they are way to serious and I don't like 99% of the shoes I see, so with jeans (or with everything else) I wear sneakers. My Hummel sneakers look like loafers, but they're more comfortable and I've got a full black Adidas sneakers with 3 white stripes (logo) which are my more "formal" footwear. Do I really need shoes with jeans for making the overall look more casual/formal?

  40. Antonio, I am thinking about getting a pair of Chelsea boots. Which color would go with almost anything? Would it be a more of a cognac or brown color or would a black pair be the best?

  41. I've always preferred simpler, dark jeans. I don't feel right wearing light colored pants, for some reason. However, I did have a pair of jeans that was slightly distressed, but that was from wear and tear, not by design :). But indeed, jeans are very versatile in what they can be paired with due to the vast range of materials and design possibilities, it's just about finding the right ones. For some time now, I've been keeping an eye out for a brown boot to wear in fall/winter with jeans, but unfortunately, my taste in shoes are quite particular, so I haven't found the right pair for me yet.
    I didn't know (or at least don't remember) Original Grain being started by two brothers, but that sounds like a pretty cool way to keep your family close. My favorite watches are their Rosewood and Chrome combos in their minimalist and classic collections.

  42. Mr. Centeno very helpful tips for matching jeans whether dressing up or dressing down thanks for the information.

  43. Spent 600 bucks on a pair of jeans from Zegna… best jeans I've owned by far! Definitely don't skimp on quality denim!

  44. Would it be hard for you if you would actually wear the combinations so we can see? It's difficult for me to imagine the final look.

  45. Thanks for the input. I work in the casual northwest but in the formal field of counseling. I'm constantly trying to figure out how to balance these two. This video is extremely helpful! I like the classic collection from original grain. Solid and versatile.

  46. Love this channel! I am a new subscriber unfortunately my wardrobe 13 years ago was either gone or out of style. I lost my vision at that time not all of it but most of it. I don't work in a professional environment anymore but would like to dress nights nice for going to nightclubs. Do you have a video about wearing jeans with say sweaters?

  47. Also, I've been checking out the original green watches. A bartender that I know at the casino that I go to a told me that she had bought one for her husband. Do you have anymore available? I do have a nice bowl of a stainless steel watch that I really do like but I'm really interested and also having something that is a little bit more stand outage if you could reply to this message I would be very helpful thanks so much for all your help.

  48. Sorry for being long-winded. However if you do you have any watches left I've been actually having my eye on the recycled whiskey barrel watches. Thanks again for all your help and sorry for so many comments. But thanks again for all your help

  49. Antonio! Thanks for the next of Your helpful video!
    I got a tip for You when making videos 'how to match something with something" and i think everybody would be grateful if You'd apply it, so listen:
    it would be so great if You'd show us those all clothes actualy how You look on them!
    Not just showing us those clothes on the hanger! Cause when You do it like that in that video – i got to use my imagination..
    so there is the thing im missing on Your canal. But im not tellin that every of Your vid is like that. But in that case it would be extra helpful!
    And of course i'd love to see how those classic collection of those watches matches with types of clothes You recomend to us!
