As many of you may know, I am a huge soccer fan. I have actually played the game ever since I was 6 years old. As a young boy, I always dreamed of playing in Europe for an elite club and starring on the field. As I grew, I gave soccer a real shot and was scouted to join a youth Canadian team in a tournament in Brazil. After the tournament, I was fortunate enough to be offered a package to stay in Brazil and play on the youth academy of a top Brazilian club. After training with the team for a couple months and being quite homesick, I made the decision that a professional soccer career wasn’t for me. Through a variety of events, I found my way into the fashion industry and the rest as they say, is history.
You may be asking yourself, “Why should I care?” Well, over the years of training I developed muscular thighs and a larger posterior. Finding jeans that fit properly was always such a struggle. As a menswear enthusiast, I couldn’t have just any jeans. I wanted the ones I saw walking down the runway. So, I researched ways to get a slim tapered fit that was comfortable, while giving me a flattering silhouette. Finally, I found a hybrid; stretch denim changed the way that I purchased jeans.
A stretch jean is made from a blend of cotton and spandex. In comparison to a traditional twill cotton pant, the spandex in stretch denim gives the wearer a little bit of extra movement and give. The result is a jean so comfortable, you won’t want to take them off.
With various stretch jeans across the market, finding a denim with the proper cut for your frame can sometimes be difficult. When I want to get a great fitting stretch jean, I head to EXPRESS. EXPRESS carries a variety of stretch jeans in all different colors and washes. What’s more, is that all of their cuts are made to fit guys with athletic legs. Just ask their featured athlete, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
So whether you cycle, play football, or just never skip leg day, EXPRESS has the perfect stretch denim for you.
