Here at StylePilot we are huge fans of River Island. They keep surprising us and their newly launched AW16 is only confirming this. For the coming season, River Island menswear reinvigorates denim by developing classic fits and colours into a variety of contemporary silhouettes. Newer shades and styles bolster the autumn denim offering for a modern twist on the wardrobe staple.

The ever-popular skinny and super skinny fits Sid and Danny remain a key denim shape maintaining both their time honoured colour and cut. The classic 5-pocket black and deep indigo skinnies offer clean and dressier substitutes while lighter vintage shades will spruce up casual weekend looks.


In recent seasons trendsetters have embraced the looser denim fits and our versatile offering Dylan slim fit and Dean straight fit are easy-to-wear alternatives that come in a plethora of colours, distressed finishes and washes ready to become a significant part of the male wardrobe. 

Alongside the denim classics, this winter sees the release of five limited edition biker styles. Rugged rip & repair techniques, badging and vintage washing complement the signature skinny and super skinny fit; coated black and smoky blue shades complete in 10oz stretch heavy duty denim are perfect for the colder months.

A new addition to the River Island denim family are the Ronnie slim cigarette and Jimmy slim tapered that feature a subtly tapered leg and regular rise, offering a fashion forward alternative to the classic slim cuts. The versatility continues in our looser fits, the Clint bootcut and Tony slouch jean in a range of authentic denim washes offer an effortlessly relaxed silhouette that are always reliable. 

A variety of comfort stretch-fabric compositions and weights feature across all fits and styles; alternative colour options of white and washes of grey effortlessly enhance and adapt to the lifestyle needs of the modern man. 

For those looking for a refreshed denim look, an array of contemporary updates include acid washing, patchwork and rip & repair styles; hand finished abrasions and distressed washes are a modern take on the vintage worker jean; just combine with a classic denim jacket and shirt to complete the double denim look.
