It is difficult to find a woman in whose wardrobe there are no jeans. Ladies purchase them regularly, like pantyhose, right – not so often. Jeans buy for work and leisure, in the village and on the way out. Colors, facades and patterns change, the main thing remains – convenience.
Do not hope that the thing chosen by you will be perfected simply because you liked it. Be skeptical about the assurances of the sellers that “everything in these jeans is native,” primordial and natural, like the name of American pieces. Make a complete check on the model you want to purchase.
To get started, read the label: if it says “Bleached on the Rocks”, you know, these jeans were processed in special centrifuges along with a handful of round porous pumice bags. This procedure gives the jeans a special “exquisitely worn” look and softness, but the thing will not be so strong as the unbleached model. Explore the pattern of future purchase on the touch – even an ordinary cheap cotton fabric can be made similar to heavy-duty denim with the help of starch. But after washing with such jeans, a natural end will come. Label “native” jeans often has a “chewed” texture, but it certainly carefully stitched around the perimeter. Belt loops guarantee that jeans on a belt will fit well on any waistline. Usually, 7 loops are made on men’s jeans, 5 – on women’s.
After making sure that you are dealing with denim, and not with its imitation, turn the thing out of the fold and carefully examine the seams. All sections of the fabric should be closed and gently stitched – no beveled seams, no curved stitches should not be. Thread stitches, a broken line – all this indicates a poor quality things. The bottom of jeans is stitched with a special double stitch, and the step seam is made of a particularly strong stitched stitch – 10-12 cm long. The inner seams of branded jeans are invariably made with a yellow silk thread, which does not change color when washed and worn. From the outside, the main brand mark is the line on the back of each of the stores – each company has its own.
Accessories – one of the main differences of real jeans. On the “dog” lightning, on the back of the rivets and buttons should be clearly read the name of the company or trademark. For example, L.S. & – S.F (Levi Strauss & Co – San Francisco). The dog itself must have a double detent and not slip, even if the zipper is not fastened to the end.
Third World Jeans
Many brands sold today in the denim market have factories in the third world, where workforce, raw materials and production facilities are much cheaper than in Europe and in America. And because “Diesel” and “Cross” and other marks in Turkish performance can be found even in Italy. Their cost is lower than that of models made in America and Europe, and the quality is similar: fabric, thread, lecture, etc. – everything is exactly the same. Today, American jeans brands, made directly in America, almost never sell: too expensive transportation plus paying for the “native” working force will make these “pants” just gold. So what to fear is not the firm production in the third world countries, but a different kind of forgeries from the Near and Far East, and also with the “Mala Arnautskaya”.
The easiest way to identify a fake is that: fold the jeans along the seams, and if the pants wrinkle and wrinkle, then before you are a fake – the “native” jeans with a similar operation will lie completely flat.
Designer models with splicing, trimming, metallic dusting, beading and other “bells” are different from working “bags” with frank eternity – and the wagons cannot be loaded into them, and the ceilings can be cut off. However, brilliant adornments should in no case be removed directly in the store under the influence of the customer’s view. It is best to quietly pod the appli- cation or stitching with a fingernail – if the decorative item flies away at once, you should not waste money on such unreliable beauty.
However, you can prolong or shorten the life of your clothes by yourself – everything depends on your care. Denim, though a durable fabric, but its safety factor is not infinite. Wash jeans, especially with designer adornments such as lace and leather inserts, embroidery and glued mirrors better on your hands. In the car wash is maintained only by the simplest fronts – yes and then only on slower turns. In no case do not use bleaching compounds and powders with a bleaching effect! The maximum that you can afford is to add a pair of tablespoons of vinegar or a neutral composition into the water, softening the fabric but not leaving stains – then your jeans will not polish and will not stand up after washing. If you are not aesthetically inspired by red rusting stones around rivets, do not soil jeans for more than 2 hours.
Water for washing should have a temperature not higher than 40 degrees. Wash jeans nado, twisting them out of the saturation and zastegnuv on all buttons and zippers.
