The pieces of a pair of jeans
With nearly 150 years of history, jeans are today one of the basic garments in any wardrobe. We have already told you what their origins are , how to take care of them and even what the manufacturing process of jeans is like, but do you know what the pieces of a pair of jeans are? Here is a brief introduction for jeans lovers.
As we say, a pair of pants is made up of several pieces. From top to bottom:
First of all, we find the loop , located on the upper edge of the garment as a decoration. The belt loop is a small strip of fabric that joins two pieces of pants, in order to fasten the belt. It is located on the waistband , also called the waistband of the pants.
Secondly, we have the button , which closes the zipper and adjusts the garment to the waist. It is usually metallic: hard and resistant. The next part of the jean would be the yoke , which is the part that joins the waistband and the back piece.
Another piece of pants is the zipper , used to join the two parts of the jean and make it fit at the waist. The most common in jeans is to use this closure, but it can also be replaced by metal buttons that give the garment a different touch.
And if we talk about the zipper, we have to refer to the fly , that is, the opening that produces the placement of the zipper on the jeans.
Also, the rivets serve to reinforce the seams of the pants and make them even more resistant.
At this point, we must also highlight the two large pieces of the jean: the front and the back , joined both on the inside of the leg and on the outside with resistant seams that close the garment on both sides.
On the other hand, there are the pockets . A jean is also called a '5-pocket' because it is a pants model that generally has 3 front pockets and 2 back pockets, a feature that makes them comfortable and practical. Yes, the small front pocket in which many of us keep the coins -and which was created in its day to introduce the pocket watch- also counts. This peculiar pocket is known as a match or watch case due to the use that was given to it in its origins.
The fabric used to make the trouser pockets is the lining . You will be happy to know that, in our case, we use 'Made in Green' cotton, both for this part and for the rest of the garment.
If we continue going down, we find the knee line , different for each pattern and model of pants. Depending on the cut of the jean - super skinny , skinny , regular ...-, the knee line varies from one measurement to another in order to establish the appropriate fit for each model.
To finish with the pieces of a pair of jeans, we have to talk about the hem or boot , that is, the final part of the leg. In general, jeans show a hem in this part, however, one of the latest trends in jeans is to give a frayed finish to this area of the jeans, an original and striking detail.
And with this you already have the definitive guide to the pieces of a pair of jeans, what you needed as a good lover of denim!
