We’re proud to be one of the leading suppliers of men’s and women’s denim clothing in Salt Lake City. We absolutely love denim for both sexes. It’s even great for the kids. In fact, there may not be another material ever made that we appreciate as much as denim. You could say we’re denim crazy.
Our stock of men’s and women’s denim items focus mainly on pants, but don’t let that stop you from embracing this material in other ways. Feel free to dive into denim shirts, jackets, dresses, and hats. In the meantime, check out the following five reasons we are so passionate about denim:
1. Denim is Durable
If you set aside the fashion aspects of men’s and women’s denim clothing, denim is a material with incredibly high durability. There are few other materials as tough. Perhaps that’s why it was the material of choice when Nevada tailor Jacob Davis made the very first pair of reinforced blue jeans in the 1870s.
Some people mistakenly believe that denim is an American invention. It’s not; it actually hails from France. However, it wasn’t a popular material for work clothing until Americans started making blue jeans. Davis’ jeans were an instant hit with surveyors, rail workers, miners, and ranch hands because it was tougher than anything else they had previously seen. Nothing much has changed in the last 150 years.
2. Denim is Versatile
Another reason we love denim is that it’s so versatile in terms of fashion. A good pair of denim jeans is just what you need to dress down at the end of a long workday. Ditch the suit or dress and put on a pair of casual jeans with a loosely fitting top. You are ready for an evening at home or a casual dinner with friends.
Denim is also versatile enough to dress up. A pair of dress jeans can be the foundation for that perfect Friday night look. And yes, you can pair your denim jeans with a business jacket and blouse to fit in with the business casual craze.
3. Denim is Comfortable
Denim’s twill weaving creates a fabric that is quite comfortable. A brand-new pair of denim jeans may feel a bit rough to the touch, but a trip through the wash cycle changes that. You suddenly have a luxuriously soft fabric that feels as comfortable as your own skin. Simply put, denim is incredibly comfortable.
4. Denim Ages Well
Getting back to the fashion aspects of denim for just a minute, it is a material that ages very well. For example, denim does not hold its dye forever. As such, it fades over time. That is not a bad thing. A lot of people find faded denim even better looking than brand-new. And of course, fading is almost a badge of honor for well-worn jeans.
When denim is finally old enough to begin showing tears and holes, so what? A good pair of jeans looks even better with the right kind of wear in the right places, which is why pre-distressed denim clothing is so popular.
5. Denim is Classic
Last but not least, denim is classic. Denim in every form has withstood the test of time. It has remained constant even though hundreds of different fashion trends have come and gone over the years. For that reason alone, denim is our favorite.
