A good pair of denims should be a staple in any wardrobe. Not only for functionality, comfort, and durability but great style. Which is why it’s no surprise, the latest runway shows have been laden with denim trends. During the past year there has been a big shift away from the dominant skinny jeans of yore to wide-leg styles, boyfriend cuts and even low-waist styles. G STAR RAW have been pushing the boundaries of denim design, manifesting the future of denim. They are passionate about hardcore denim – a philosophy that pushes the brand to invent, explore and take craftsmanship to another level.
Explore all the hottest denim trends with G STAR RAW's new range of denims and update your look with the go-to garment – perfect for any social or work occasion.
Type 49 Relaxed
REGULAR STRAIGHT FIT JEANS, R2499.00
The iconic Type 49 jean sits on or above the hips, with a straight fit through the seat and thigh. This anti-fit cut offers great comfort, less wear on the seat and is a great looking pair of denims created out of 100% sustainable cotton. Visible rivets are added to the front to enhance the hardcore long-lasting workwear look in a very contemporary style with a twist on the coin pocket hidden inside the pants. Style with your favourite G STAR T or slim shirt.
TYPE 89 Real Boyfriend
BOYFRIEND JEANS, R 2,499.00
The Type 89 is designed in a genuine boyfriend fit based on G Star RAW’s most authentic men’s fit: the Type 49 relaxed jeans. Reminiscing the origin of jeans, these mid waist denims offer some room for seat and thighs, proceeding in a straight leg and can be styled in different ways. A regular size offers a classic, mid-waist fit. Size down for a slimmer fit that sits higher on the waist. Or size up for a very relaxed or belted-in look. Roll up the hems and pick your favourite sneakers to complete the look.
REAL LOOSE SELVEDGE JEANS, R3,999.00
The Type 89 is designed in a loose fit and offers a variety of styling options. This mid waist denim offers some room around the hip and thigh and proceeds in a straight leg. Choose the way you want to wear them: size down for a slimmer, higher waist look or size up for a very relaxed look. This version is designed in a selvedge denim, offering binding at the raw edges.
ULTRA HIGH WAIST WIDE LEG JEANS, R2,499.00
The Deck denims offer an ultra-high waist on a wide-legged silhouette. This new blueprint is based on sailors' clothing in the late 18th century. Sailors scrubbing and whitening the wooden ship decks wore wide pants that allowed them to move freely. The hem is easy to trim. As it's kept unfolded, you can shorten it to your perfect length if needed. Complete the look with your favourite pair of heels.
BOYFRIEND FIT JEANS, R2,499.00
The Arc 3D denim offers a highly architectural cut featuring a regular hip and a low-crotch. The asymmetric tapered leg is created by the twisted side and inseams. After more than 10 years the Arc still offers a unique and timeless 3D-design that doesn’t follow any set rule from gender to trends or the common way of garment construction. This boyfriend 3D Arc offers a new take on the existing silhouette. A small fold over on the leg hem and your favourite sneakers will complete this look.
