Ah, Jeans. The garment that made American Fashion. The wardrobe staple that spans nearly all cultures and socio-economic classes world-wide. No matter what your budget or body type is, you can find a pair of jeans that fits both. But there is a lot to know about jeans that the casual jean-wearer does not know about them. Where were the jeans made, what special finishes have been applied, are they washed or raw, sanforized or not? And even though jeans were first created in the USA, many of today's top denim brands are not based there at all. In the coming weeks, solifestyle will give you a close look at jeans, making note of exactly what makes each pair unique and awesome.
