How many ways can you redefine denim jeans?

Countless, as seen at the recent launch of Bench’s Overhauled Jeans (OJ) collection. Silhouettes ran the gamut (straight, slim fit, skinny and relaxed) as did details. We’re talking clean fades and small rips; cropped and raw cuffs; stovepipe and wide leg; classic selvedge and soft washes.

To be You was at the launch and picked out the most eye-catching ways to dress denim jeans. Standouts include Brooklyn codes (slim, tapered cut), Japanese utilitarian (with a chambray Noragi jacket), hipster (faded, flared and cropped), and Beckham boys (checked and topped with a newsboy cap).
