The Vodo behind THE BLUE

We all own multiple pairs of jeans and we wear them with pride. Whether it’s a work day or a grand occasion, they never fail you – especially the classic blue denim.

They are the granddaddy of fashion that refuses to give away its ‘cool’.  This does not imply that the other colors don’t hold their own ground when it comes to denim.  But, for the purposes of this article, we will stick to the classic blue jeans.

So, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of the chemistry behind the classic blue jeans.

It all starts with cotton yarn, which looks white, but with the aid of dye creates that blue color that everyone loves to see. The awesome part of dying the yarn is that it turns yellow, and with the help of oxygen, turns blue. It is then coated with starch and the weaving process starts. It’s an intricate process that gives provision for the various designs that you’ve come to love and adore. When woven into denim, these blue threads run parallel in the fabric and are put together with white cotton “weft” thread, which runs perpendicular. Look down at your jeans, and you’ll see what I mean.

Let’s get back to reality. Who really cares about the chemistry of jeans when you can get them looking so awesome?

How to Wear Them for Your Body Shape

“The whole world loves American movies, blue jeans, jazz and rock and roll. It is probably a better way to get to know our country than by what politicians or airline commercials represent.” Billy Joel. We all look for jeans that make us look good and sexy but no matter how hard we look it seems that not all trends suit your body shape.

For a heavy built body: You want to be the “Ideal man”? Your first step towards that is to be yourself. Look for jeans to satisfy your comfort level. Going out to buy skinny jeans is not a good idea. As you set out to find your jeans look for a wide-leg or a classic fit style, these will provide you with enough room. If you still want to look for a skinny jeans then look for jeans that have large pockets.

For a Medium body: Finding denims for this body type can be a task. Wearing straight-cut is mostly best for this body type. People with this type of body are seen to be athletic and have a busy lifestyle. Try to avoid tight fitting pats as no matter how you convince yourself they will not compliment your muscles.
