The True Denim Jeans Story

Created in Italy near Turin, denim was originally sold through the Italian port of Genoa to be made into sailor pants for the Genoese Navy, hence the word ‘jeans’ comes from the French phrase ‘bleu de Gênes’, literally the blue of Genoa.

The most expensive and exclusive denim is Selvedge (sometime spelt selvage). It is made on old-style shuttle looms rather than modern, projectile looms. With less fabric produced due to one thread, instead of multiple, the consumption of cotton is higher and the time required is greater. To spot a true selvedge pair, in the turn up you will see the actual edge of the fabric and it usually features a coloured thread, invariably red.

A 14$ billion industry that offers unlimited choices. But choice is a good thing!? Right? However, remember with jeans … style, cut and fit are everything!
