Denim jeansare one of the most iconic and enduring fashion staples of all time. The story begins in the late 19th century, when durable workwear was needed for the miners and cowboys of the American West. Enterprising entrepreneurs like Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis saw an opportunity to create tough, practical pants that could withstand the rigours of the frontier.
The first jeans were made from a sturdy cotton fabric called denim, which was originally dyed with indigo to give it its distinctive blue colour. Over time, jeans became a symbol of the American spirit of independence and resilience. From cowboys and miners to rebels and rock stars, denim jeans have been worn by people from all walks of life.
Today, denim jeans are a ubiquitous fashion item, naturally worn by everyone. In the last few years, as the dress codes have become more casual, you can even see jeans being worn by lawyers or people working in finance, where jeans were frowned upon in the past. Given the regained popularity of jeans, we wanted to put together a fit guide for our assortment of jeans. In this guide, we present our different brands and the models we stock along with the fit and details of each model. Enjoy!
