Dark wash jeans are the easiest way to make denim more sophisticated, and no one does sophistication like Dior Homme. Made from blue stretch cotton and completed by the Dior Oblique motif on the inside of the cuffs and Dior signature stitching on the back pockets, these Italian-made jeans are your go-to for more formal events, when light wash denim just doesn’t cut it.
