Denim was first used in clothes manufacturing back in the 17th century when its strength and durability made it popular as a working material. At this time, cotton was often mixed with other materials but by the 18th century, the denim material was made from pure cotton. The Levi Strauss Company developed what we would now consider to be working jeans in 1873, popular with San Francisco miners because they could endure repeated washing without suffering a loss of colour or quality.
The 1930s saw jeans move from a functional item of clothing to one associated with Hollywood actors and high fashion. It was during this peak that jeans made the transition from being an American trend to a worldwide one with heavy marketing. Popularity was further increased as the world saw actors playing cowboys wearing these sturdy and tough trousers for everyday use.
There are now many types, styles, and designs of jeans for men available and they remain popular as sturdy work trousers as well as fashion trousers and for everyday wear. Their durability and the range of designs that they are available in have certainly helped to improve their popularity but so too have their affordability. Another probable reason for their success is the fact that, while they can often be considered the “safe option”, the range of designs now means that it is possible to make a statement while wearing comfortable and long lasting trousers.
Straight jeans are common as men’s jeans and are available in the widest range of colours. From green to brown and black to blue, this is only a small selection of what might now be considered the standard colours. Bright reds, oranges, and greens as well as white, cream, and natural colours are widely available for both men and women.
Baggy jeans may be considered the most comfortable because they do not fit against any particular area of the body or legs. In contrast, skinny jeans which have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the past few years are arguably the most constricting of design. However, if you ensure that you buy the right size of jeans then no pair, regardless of style, should be uncomfortable.
