It is the most usual problem of men of all ages to find the best custom jeans. It’s not an easy problem for a style-savvy guy even for the regular guy who just likes to feel comfortable in his homemade pair of jeans. There are several factors that have to be considered such as color, style, leg length, wash, and the fit. You may also consider the denim which is the fabric too. It may range from the stretch to mid-weight to those that are heavy and with thick selvage.
From online stores to the many walk-in shops around, the following are some aspects we have to look into when it comes to custom jeans before we cross out any tailor:
Choose the Cotton
There are several types of cotton used with varying staple lengths or the size of the fiber used in the creation of the denim. Cotton that have longer staple lengths will be able to produce softer denim than the short ones. You can also choose the type of cotton used.
It is said that 90 percent of denim is created with the use of cotton coming from China, the US, and Australia. It may range in staple lengths but it’s often processed for the masses which makes it possible to have harder and a longer-lasting denim. Zimbabwe cotton is known to have the longest staple cotton fibers. And it is the rarest too. It’s also popularly known for its luster, weight, and its ability to soak up indigo.
The Best Wash to Have
There are different types of wash for jeans. These are the following: vintage, dark, selvage or raw, and classic. You can find hundreds of shades in between all of these. Each of these can be affected by repetitive washing of the cloth which eliminates the indigo. The denim color may differ depending if it is dyed grey or black.
The Right Fit and Cut
For men, the usual waist options are low waist and the normal waist. You should select the cut too. This refers to the roominess of the legs and how close the fabric falls according to the leg shape. You can choose from the following: skinny, standard, straight, relaxed, and boot.
