Popular clothing fashion for Mens and womens Jeans


History of Jeans and Denim 

Jeans are pants made from denim or dungaree cloth. They were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873 and a worn still but in a different context. Jeans are named after the city of Genoa in Italy, a place where cotton corduroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured. Levi Strauss came from Germany to New York in 1851 to join his older brother who had a dry goods store.

In 1853 he heard about Gold Rush in the West so moved to San Francisco to establish Western Branch of the family dry goods business. There he sold, among other things, cotton cloth. One of his customers was Jacob W. Davis, a tailor from Reno, Nevada. Davis made functional items such as tents, horse blankets, and wagon covers.

One day, his customer ordered a pair of sturdy pants that could withstand hard work. He made them from denim that he bought from Levi Strauss & Co and made them stronger by placing copper rivets at the places pants rip the most: pockets and flies. When he wanted to patent them, he wrote to Levi Strauss, and they became partners. They opened a bigger factory, and that is how jeans were born.

Jeans History

Jeans marked culture of the last 140 years probably more than we think. They were first working clothes, then symbols of disobedience only to become fashion items. History of denim and jeans is long and colorful.

Did you know that the most expensive pair of blue jeans is sold for $250,000? Did you know that the longest pair of blue jeans is sixty-eight meters long?

History of Jeans Making

Jeans are made of a material called denim. The name “denim” comes from the name of a sturdy fabric called “Serge de Nîmes”, initially made in Nîmes, France, hence “de Nîmes” - “denim”. Weavers of Nîmes tried to reproduce the cotton corduroy that was famously made in the city of Genoa, in Italy, but with no luck. With trial and error, they developed another twill fabric that became known as denim. That was cotton twill textile, in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. Warp threads were dyed in indigo while weft threads remained white that gave to denim blue color on the one side and white on the other. 

Indigo dye is a color used for coloring the denim. It is an organic dye with a distinctive blue color. It was manufactured and used in India, from where it got its name, since the ancient times.Indigo dye is a color used for coloring the denim. It is an organic dye with a distinctive blue color.

Types of Jeans  for mens.

 there are 6 different types of jeans for men. 

1. Straight

The most commonly seen and worn, the straight fit defines itself. It does not have a wide thigh space and does not widen downwards either. It's straight with no variance. Looks best on men with an athletic body type.

2. Skinny

The skinny fit clings to the shape of the body, contouring it as perfectly as possible. It's extra snug at the thighs and the calves and narrows down to the hem. It makes the lower part seem slimmer and longer. Looks best on men who have short legs.

3. Slim

Slim fit is similar to skinny but they're not as snug. They fit a person's lower body just right; neither are they too tight nor too loose. Men with a thinner build should give these a try. 

4. Bootcut

You have the cowboys to thank for the bootcut style jeans. This type of jeans was made so that cowboys could accommodate their boots in the jeans. Hence, the bootcut! A must try for men with a muscular build.

5. Relaxed 

Jeans with a relaxed cut are super comfortable. They have a larger thigh and calf area as they're usually made for men with wider legs. But because of the cut, it looks good on most body types. 

6. Loose

Ample of fabric on the hip, thighs and calves area, loose cut jeans are baggy in fit. Looks best on men with a wide lower body. But if you want to look like Eminem.

In this one, the entire length of the leg is wide, unlike the flared or the bootcut, where it starts widening thigh down. They are also called baggy jeans that became popular in the mid '90s.

4. Skinny Jeans

The type we see a lot nowadays, skinny jeans are the go-to for most women. They have a super snug fit from top to bottom with a narrow leg opening that clings to the ankle.

5. Cigarette

Cigarette cut is a style that falls between straight and skinny. They have a snug fit but thighs down, they are straight with a narrow hem. Perfect for women with a petite body type.

6. Cropped

The cropped style is quite similar to a capri. They are jeans shorter than regular ones and stop right above your ankles. Perfect for casual as well as formal wear, they are great for women blessed with long, lean legs.

7. Cuffed

Cuffed jeans are basically jeans that come with a folded hem. They're super chic right now and if you go for these, make sure you pair them with some really good shoes. Hourglass, apple, pear, women with almost every body shape can wear these. If you have a petite body, make sure your cuffs aren't too high though.


High-rise jeans are usually worn above the navel. They make your legs appear longer and redefine your waistline, affecting how your whole body is perceived. These will look flattering on an hourglass body shape.


Well, the name says it all. Straight-cut jeans fit perfectly and have the same fit from the waist to the ankles.
