Jeans are made from denim fabric , which is a hard cotton fabric. The denim name comes from the French town’s serge de Nîmes. Serge is a twill type, a name for clothing manufactured with separate threads in the weft and warp (vertical and horizontal axes). This difference is one colored and one undyed thread in denim, making a cheaper cloth-you only need half the color. Calling your pants “blue jeans” seems almost redundant because almost all denim is blue. While jeans are probably the most versatile plants in your wardrobe, blue is not a color that is particularly neutral. Ever wonder why the go-to hue is this?
When the first jeans were produced, we have to go back to answering that question. Levi Strauss may be known for “inventing” jeans, just patenting the style with rivets to make them more sturdy Levi Strauss & Co said he wasn’t the first to make the fabric. Denim was a traditional fabric of the worker, so he just added a fresh twist to the trend of the day. In fact, he used the same design called “duck” pants for brown cotton pants, which eventually fell out of fashion and made way for jeans. These small front Jean pockets, however, are still on contemporary models today and that’s why they exist.
Because of the blue dye’s chemical properties, blue was the color chosen for denim. The fabric will permeate most colors at hot temperatures, making the color stick. On the other hand, the natural indigo dye used in the first jeans, according to Slate, would only stick to the outside of the thread. When the indigo-tinted denim is washed away, that dye’s tiny amounts get washed away, and the thread comes along. The more denim was washed, the softer it would get, and finally, the worn-in, made-for-me feeling is achieved with your favorite jeans. And when it’s lastly time to part with your overused pair, you can recycle or upgrade them together with other products.
That softness produced the trousers of choice for the worker. Blue jeans took over and locked up their place in history as classic American fashion as demand for jeans rose and duck pants dropped. Jeans has turned into the fashion icon and in the crowd can give you the Standout.
