INDIA: During the week of Valentine’s Day celebrations all you need is love. But buying a great pair of jeans never hurts. Yes, Jeans today are best friends of people of all ages. They even give senior citizens a bold look at their age and maybe helps them find a valentine.
Over the last decade, we have seen the rise of Jeans as a popular article of casual dress around the world. These are trousers, a type of garment, typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. The term often refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” but over the years we have seen many colours and styles.
Jeans were once seen as tough work clothes, but the evolution and popularisation over the years have made them an enduring part of every wardrobe around the world. Kids, youth, and oldies as well, everyone loves them for the comfort they provide and the ease of carrying it on you.
Even though Jeans are a popular fashion garment for several decades, they are still worn as protective garments by some individuals, such as cattle ranch workers and motorcycle riders, due to their high durability as compared to other common fabrics.
Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers. It was a common fashion item in the 1960’s Hippie subculture and they continued to be popular in the 1970s and 1980’s youth subcultures of punk rock and heavy metal. Historic brands include Levi’s, Lee, and Wrangler.
Today too, jeans remain a popular fashion item, and they come in various fits, including skinny, tapered, slim, straight, boot cut, cigarette bottom, narrow bottom, bell bottom, low waist, anti-fit, and flare. Today, “Distressed” (visibly aged and worn, but still intact and functional) jeans trousers have become increasingly fashionable.
Today, for almost everyone jeans are the first preference. Chances are that you will find people wearing a pair even at work, at a party, at a meeting, on a trek, in a boat, oh yes dear, almost everywhere.
