Jeans have come a long way since they first started being worn, from the first pairs of non-riveted jeans whose back pockets would rip apart after a few weeks, to today’s modern jeans offering a sleek, fashionable look and a quality material and stitching at the same time. However, jeans have long gone beyond the traditional “blue cowboy pants” type and now we can notice a trend to use denim (formerly used simply as a material for making trousers) in many other areas such as overalls, shorts, dresses, skirts, shirts, jackets or capris.
The jeans market is flooded with all sorts of models, from different kinds of brands ranging on an extremely wide array of prices. It’s often quite difficult to choose what’s best for you in regards to quality and fashion. Here are some of the types of jeans that circulate on today’s market:
The “designer jeans” trend started in the late 70s, with the Nakash brothers (Ralph, Avi and Joe Nakash) launching their line of Jordache jeans. It was the first time in history that a jeans model would literally start a fashion trend following its release and the Jordache line represented the birth certificate for a future marketing formula. After witnessing the success of the Nakash brothers in 1978, many other designers tried to take up their trend-breaking formula and created models of their own, intended to shock and change the fashion of the time.
Designer jeans are mostly handstitched and they can sometimes have engravings or diamond insertions. The usual price for a pair of designer jeans can go from $100 to $500, depending on the quality of the material used and the designer brand. In some cases, jeans can go above this sum, especially if they have a lot of engravings and are riddled in precious rocks.
There are now many different designer jeans brands. Seven Jeans is probably the most well known designer jeans and they have many of the top styles. Also True Religion Jeans have become a very popular choice for jeans. There are hundreds of jean companies but most don’t compare to the top designer jeans for fit and style.
