Lucky Blue Smith offers GQ Middle East a user guide to the season’ waviest denim jeans, shirts and jackets

Meet Your Match
Yeah, yeah, yeah: double denim comes with a high degree of difficulty. But does it really? With a hero coat – and a little mood of workwear – it can become your new power suit.

Take It Out
By night, take things to a new level with sleek hair, distressed detail and a hero jacket – because, sure, they still work.

Dial Down
Yeah, we’re a little bored of skinny black jeans and trucker jackets, too. But denim minimalism is still a thing – just opt for a jacket that’s a bit more creative, and some all-grown-up grooming.

Tied & Dyed
The next evolution of tie-dye is cleaner, cooler, and a little logo-inspired – just make sure you lean into the wildness with finishing touches, like a give-zero-damn gilet.

Power Play
Heartthrobs from Lucky to Harry Styles know the power of skinny black denim and a brash shirt. Just add some jewellery to keep things more rocker than slacker.

White Out
Want to go white-on-white without looking like that guy in Mykonos who doesn’t know the party is over? Just add texture and accessories. A simple gold chain is enough to change everything forthe more stylish.

Turn It Up
Ever since Japanese selvedge denim went global, one thing became clear: your jeans should be as individual as you are. Exhibit A: some brash hems that’ll make a little noise, wherever you go.
