Every fashion house has its own take on the usual clothing, including jeans. The Armani Jeans Tessuti range for men shares some features with other designers, yet also exhibits the Armani individuality consumers know, love, and trust.
Where a lot of fashion houses play around with fit, Armani has stuck with one style: comfortable. Men’s jeans are loose enough to move around in, but not baggy. They would be perfect for an active man on the go wearing a polo shirt, sports coat, and a pair of sneakers or loafers.
Colours make up the usual list: shades of blue, variations on grey, and black. The wash profiles also vary: from a dark wash to worn-looking with a few rips thrown in for good measure. There is nothing exotic here: just good quality jeans built to last.
Armani gets more creative with women’s jeans. They have their various washes just like the men, and they mostly stick with a contemporary fit (around or slightly below the hips). Some of their jeans are also ripped at the knees and thighs.
But Armani women’s jeans are very feminine. The selection is not wide, just sexy. Slim-fitting jeans end at an ankle featuring wrinkles that resemble gentle folds, but do not see the word ‘folds’ and think of a folded hem. That will give you a picture of pedal pushers. These are not those. Models are shown sporting stilettos with their Armani jeans.
Unlike the men, women are permitted colour choices beyond the usual palette. Their selection includes plum and beige. There is also one boot-cut, slightly flared pair of jeans in this line. They are not extremely wide at the ankle a la 1970s style, but they would suit a bulky boot. A textured jean has the look of grey denim covered in black lace.
Also in the women’s range are mid-length shorts and some attractive denim skirts. One is pencil-shaped, the other a bit wider, and both stop mid-thigh. Although they are sexy, they are not trashy.
More than Jeans
Although jeans are, basically, denim, Armani also carries a range of trousers which have that ‘jeans’ look to them. They come in many more colours, such as claret, red, and white, but they are the same shape as the jeans. Men’s pants also vary in colour. Shades of green such as forest, sage, and olive are featured in the online catalogue. The shape of men’s trousers continues to be mostly comfortable and casual throughout the line.
