How to Identify Original Denim Jeans
In denim wear, there are 3 kinds of jeans in the world: original, replica, and fakes. Original jeans are made with the best materials from designs that a company has held for a long time. Generally, originals are of such high quality that they are much more expensive than the average person can afford.
Replica jeans are made from designs held by the company, but they use materials and techniques that are a little less resilient and structurally sound than what goes into the originals. Some replicas are made from a design that is held in the company’s archives. Replicas are made so that the company can provide clothing for people who might not otherwise be able to afford jeans.
Fake jeans, or knock-offs, are made by another company and imitate a brand that is famous for its durability. Knock-offs are usually of poor quality and contain noticeable mistakes. They are also cheap enough and done well enough that many people don’t mind wearing the fake, especially in countries where fashion is more important than name brand.
Real denim jeans will contain only denim. Stretch denim may have polyester, which won’t necessarily affect the durability of the jeans. However, any other materials should be viewed with skepticism. The stitching should be symmetrical and not frayed. The better the stitching, the more likely you have original denim. Color that fades after the first washing may indicate inferior denim quality. Make sure the name of the brand you’re buying is spelled correctly. If something looks or feels off, go with your gut and wait to buy a new pair of jeans.
