WHAT MAKES THE QUALITY OF A JEANS?

THE WEIGHT OF THE CANVAS
The unit of measurement is the Oz.

9 TO 11 OZ
Light canvas, summer jeans.

11 TO 13 OZ
Common canvas, 4-season jeans.

13 TO 16 OZ
Thick canvas: for mid-season, winter, and those who break their jeans quickly!

16 OZ AND MORE
Very heavy canvas (unusual).

SELVEDGE OR SELFEDGE?

In truth, selvedge is the contraction of self/edge in English, literally "finished edge".

This means that the fabric pans are cut from the edug that completes the roll of fabric.

The recovery of this safety border allows the canvas not to fray: a guarantee of quality that we particularly appreciate.

The selvedge canvases are spotted thanks to the small coloured liseret (usually red and white) that runs through the inside of the leg.

 THE JEAN ORIGINS 
Jeans are trousers whose primary characteristic is its particularly strong fabric: denim.

Despite the various hypotheses concerning its origin, we will remember the following: the "Futaines of Genoa", transport tarpaulins originating in Genoa (the word jeans is also the derivative of Genoa, Geneosa in English) would be the origin of denim.

From the Middle Ages, clothes for the commoner classes were cut in this armored fabric made from a blue chain thread and a white or ecru weft thread.

It was not until 1873 that Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis hijacked this fabric to offer the miners tear-proof trousers (... or almost!) adding rivets.

During the 20th century, jeans adapted to all currents: from workwear to street looks, it passed into the hands of cowboys, rockers or hippies.
