Hello readers,

Jeans… Hard to find who does not wear.
Nowadays there are so many models and sizes, with different washings, or embroideries, shorter, wider, in fact, it is even difficult to choose.

To help those who are not connected in these differences and choose the best model for the body of each, we will explain what are the existing models for the jeans.

– Traditional: waist in place and tapered cut legs. It was once called five pockets, three in front and two behind, a reference to Levi’s 501 American pioneer.Because his cut follows the lines of the body, he usually dress most people well.

– Antifit: modeling the 501, the first Levi’s model. It has buttons or zipper, adapted to the silhouette of the consumer, with low waist, unstructured hip and straight cut in the legs. As the name says, it is not a perfect trim jeans; Is left with small leftovers on the hip and horse. It has, as a plus, comfort and style.

– Bootcut: a variation of the antifit, has a slightly wider leg from the knee down, to facilitate the use of boots into the pants.

– Semibaggy: waist in place, broad hips and slightly tapered leg cut.

– Tight Fit or Slim Fit: with low waist, saint-tropez type, marks the hips well and has the right legs, with a tapered or straight cut.

– Cigarette: modeling adjusted to the contour of the body, right legs and low waist. Some versions use the blend of lycra jeans. The result is even tighter pants.

– Oversized (exaggerated size): the jeans are very loose. Its broad forms do not favor the lower (flatter silhouette) or chubby ones (they look even larger). Extra-sized base of wide waist, unstructured hip and broad legs.

– Skinny: very fair modeling, especially below the knee. Similar to legging, but of jeans fabric.

Model chosen, it’s time to take a look at the different types of jeans wash (that would be the tone of the blue, light, dark, faded, etc). Let’s go to them:

– Indigo (traditional): This is the most basic and classic dyeing of jeans, the typical blue that everyone knows. The indigo blue ink was formerly removed from the leaves of the Indigofera tinctoria (Anil) plant, but is currently produced in a synthetic way.

– Délavé: The jeans délavé is very clear, faded, obtained in an artificial way, with chemical bleaches.

– Blue jeans: This average shade of bright blue is achieved by the process of dyeing shorter, in chambray or light denim.

– Dark indigo: This is the very dark indigo jeans, practically navy blue. The effect is given by the double dyeing of the part.

– White jeans: The jeans are discolored so intensely as to become almost white.The clear, but not totally colorless, hue is perfect for those who like white but have difficulty keeping the pieces always well-maintained and clean-looking. That is: dirty less than white.

– Black jeans: The black jeans, more aggressive, are the darling of the rockers (and anyone who appreciates the versatility of black).

– Gray jeans: lighter and faded tonality.

– Dirty washed: The dirty jeans have the purposeful look of grimy. To it are applied effects that mimic dirt (clay and dust).
