Levi's 501 Original Fit Jeans in Medium Stonewash

Jeans is the best known product group of the brand Levi's. They are offered in different styles, colors and washings. Best known is Levi's 501 which has been offered from in the 1890s until now.

Description

Jeans are clothes that cover the hip and legs of the human body. They are a special type of trousers that are made from denim. Due to their special importance, Levi's has an own product group for jeans, while other types of trousers are included in the product group "Pants".

Jeans generally extend from the waist to the ankles and have long pant legs covering the entire legs. However, jeans are also available as "shorts" with pant legs ending above or shortly below the knee.

By abrasion during use, the white core of the weft threads of the denim appears under the dyed surface so that the color of the fabric fades. This gives used denim jeans a unique look. Especially, the surface abrasion achieves the following effects:

Inner-thigh-and-knee-fade Thigh fades faded areas at the thighs and knees due to abrasion
Wallet-fade Wallet fades faded areas or outlines at rear or front pockets caused by carrying wallets, cellphones or the like therein
Whiskers Whiskers crinkled and faded horizontal streaks at the crotch area of the jeans formed by the bending of the hip when sitting
Honeycombs Honeycombs crinkled and faded honeycomb-shaped lines behind the knee area of the jeans formed by the bending of the knee
Stacks Stacks crinkled and faded lines around the ankle and up to the calf area formed when the legs of the jeans stack on top of the shoe
Train-tracks Train tracks faded tracks on the outseams of the denim caused by the selvage.

Such a used used look, including the special effects, may also be achieved by different washings durcing the production, from a simple stone-wash process up to an extensive treatment.

Washings

Next to the color, the visual appearance of a jeans is mainly determined by the washing. Washing not only influences the overall shade of the jeans, but also may cause special efects to make the jeans look mor or leass worn, for examples bleached parts at the thigh, whiskers at frontal top side of the jeans or honeycombs at the back of the knees.

Washings are generally divided into three groups:

  • dark

  • stonewash: washing with stones physically removes surface color
