Founded in 1989 the brand quickly found themselves with the second top selling denim style of all time and a loyal worldwide following. The brand has become known for their creative approach to denim fits and their ability to recreate the denim landscape with every new collection.

With some of the most advanced denim technologies around picking the right pair of G-Star jeans can be a tricky business, to make the job a little easier we have compiled a G-Star fit guide to help you find the perfect denims.


Denim Evolution

G-Star are like the mad scientists of the Denim community with a focus on constantly developing and evolving their denim collection. Taking inspiration from the world of architecture and 3-D design the brand have introduced the Arc fit, A-crotch, Elwood and more to the industry. The brand have a love for denim which shines through in all their collection and is especially evident in the varied washes and fits presented in recent years. The sophisticated washings palette represents the full life cycle of denim and aims to promote the ‘inherent beauty of denim’ by using washes which naturally showcase the fabrics unique qualities and characteristics.



Appreciation for Tradition

G-Star may be one of the most futuristic and forward thinking denim brands around but they draw inspiration and appreciation from the history of men’s jeans. The brand have based many of their most popular fits on classic labourer pants and use some of the oldest denim construction techniques around to ensure quality and longevity in each pair of G-Star Jeans. The brands key fits have evolved over 20 years while remaining true to the original concept. The brands 3301 collection is a subtle nod to their own history with this being the colour code of the first Raw denims G-star ever produced.
