What do you guys wear with your Darker Denim?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
To give some insight I don't think there is anything I own that looks better when paired with a darker denim like PDC 1 years, or even the raw nudies, than with a medium/lighter blue like Diesel 82E. I would think yellow would look great, but I tend to stay away from anything dominant in yellow since I am fair skinned/haired. any other suggestions? am I crazy? first post btw =D

I personally like the contrast of dark denim with interesting details on a belt, light colored sneakers, and a lighter colored top. Makes the look a little more striking, imo, although I have lighter/medium colored jeans as well.

The brown/brass belt works out great for dark jeans. Not to keep going off on this belt, but the colors *really* bring out the stitching and hue of my jeans. I like the contrast of wearing a white hoodie or other very light topwear with dark jeans. However, a darker shirt looks good and rugged; today I'm wearing a chocolate-ish t-shirt and it looks great. BTW, welcome to the forum.

i only wear solid dark denim, ie: Levis 201xx, 501xx, Diesel etc (i hate faded denim and the distressed style that is so popular) so i wear pretty much everything with it. i have a paul smith teal/mustard sharkskin shortsleeve buttondown shirt that looks awesome with dark denim...otherwise it's the usual range of Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, Lacoste, Lambretta, Pringle etc polo shirts for me.

I wear mostly dark denim, paired with twill barrel cuff, casual shirts, and boots or loafers. During the fall and spring, I like wearing thin (cotton, wool, silk/cotton) knits.

What about brown loafers, brownish belt, dark jeans and this shirt? http://tinyurl.com/4d9n6 Yes? No?

I know it is not saying much, but I would wear that combination. For Easter I wore a green polo, dark brown boots, and a brown belt.

I wear dark denim with my horizontal striped beige/marine Saint-James knit, the one with buttons on the left shoulder. Sometime reffered as "breton"... I like to wear liberty shirts too, but frankly, anything will go with denim...no point in fabric or colour matching, imho. Luc

I prefer classic, formal, so I wear only white or black plain t-shirts with denim, and a grey-beige Diesel sneaker. Perhaps when I get some money I wear something more decent

Seems fine to me. Not a personal fan of Diesel sneakers though. As an alternative, why don't you try some Adidas Samoas or Superstars. Now that, that is classic.

Darker denim lacks a lot of the texture that more distressed denim has. Therefore, I usually pair my indigo jeans with stuff with a lot of texture. This winter I was big on the dark jeans, boots, heavy wool sweater, and a big knit scarf. Suede jackets and any camel coloured blazers also look pretty sweet too. A.

Last year I wore mostly distressed denims with tees and running shoes. This year it's darker denims with inside-out aloha shirts and sneakers

Playfully coloured shirts (liberty) or plain white, sometime paired with navy v-neck and black boots or white sneakers.
Sometime I go for the horizontal striped marinewear look too (Tshirt). Just a few ideas, but darker denim is more sophisticated/clean than distressed denim so it should be paired accordingly.
