Denim – Why We Enjoy Wearing It

Denim is a very sturdy fabric made from a cotton twill weave. The first denim was made at about 300 A.D. and was called nimes for the city it was made in Nimes, France.

Denim first came to America in the 1800s A business man wanted to make tents for people to live in, so he ordered a lot of denim it came over here on a ship. When the denim got to him he discovered it would not work for tents. He had a lot of the denim, so he had to try to use it for something else. After checking around he found the farmers needed heavy pants and coats to wear that would hold up under the kind of hard work they were doing. That’s when he started to make overalls and long coats for the farmers to work in.

For a long time that was the way denim was used as overalls and coats then in the late 1800’s Levi Strauss, an American clothing manufacturer, started to produce the first blue jeans from denim fabric. Even today, blue jeans are the favorite pants to wear of almost all everyone in America and I bet that goes for other countries too.

Now we all know how easy it is to care for denim. We can just throw it in the washer and be done with it. It is when we put it on that really counts. When we feel that denim jacket wrap around us and it is so very nice. We just feel great in it and just give us a pair of faded blue jeans to go with that jacket. And what else could we possible need. Now you can get Denim Jackets, jeans, skirts, Denim Shirts and Denim Vest in a lot of different colors and styles so when you are shopping for denim jackets you want it too be soft and prewashed so it won’t shrink when you wash it check the colors for fade resistant so the colors stay bright the same goes for any Denim Wear you don’t want them to shrink or fade. To get the rite size pants measure around your waist where you want the pants to fit and from the inside of your leg at your body to your ankle or as low as you want them to be. Then for a jacket go around the largest part of your chest this will give you your size if you want it to be a little more roomy then order the next size up.
