“A top denim trend for Fall 2017 at Gap is fusing fit and style of our everyday favourites with performance technology — so you can live, work, and play in any condition.

Find the Perfect Fit

“My favorite style for now and for the future is our new Easy Guy fit, which is a hybrid cut that solves so many guys’ problems: It’s roomy up top with plenty of space for athletic thighs and a butt, yet it tapers aggressively down from the knee to the bottom leg opening. Comfort where you need it, but with a modern look.” ­– Brandon Svarc, founder of Naked & Famous Denim

Make the Cut

“This Fall I’m really feeling slim black jeans with clean ripped knees. It’s a look that takes you from day to night, and has just enough edge without looking sloppy. I cut the knees myself in this pair to create the look in no time.” – Adam Taubenfligel, creative director at Triarchy

Seek Out Stretch

“My top fit suggestion is our Torino in Ever Blue. The Torino slim is the new basic for the modern-day man’s wardrobe. It is a slim fit and slimming to the body. fabric. We called it ‘Lumina’ for its and comfortable feel. The combination of the amazing Torino slim fit combined with the comfort of the Lumina brings denim to a new level.” – Jason Trotzuk, founder and creative director at Fidelity Denim
