David Beckham has recently sported the double-denim look and now the more average Brit has been advised that copying this fashion trend is acceptable - so long as they keep to some rules.

Layering Humor jeans with denim shirts or a denim jacket could give fashionable males the edge, but many may be worried about looking like a throwback from the 80s.

The Globe and Mail suggests that top-to-toe denim is bang on trend, so long as guys emulate the immaculately-dressed Beckham, rather than denim-loving Bruce Springsteen.

Designer Jason Trotzuk gives the newspaper's readers a word of warning, saying 'you should never, ever wear two denims that match'.

Mixing dark Humor jeans with a lighter-coloured shirt or jacket may let men capture the double-denim look without committing a faux pas.

Beckham recently left a hotel in Milan wearing dark blue jeans and a light blue denim jacket - but he had to team his look with crutches after injuring himself playing for AC Milan.
