Spandex in your Jeans Primer

08 Jun Posted by in Fashion Tips | Comments Off on Spandex in your Jeans Primer

Men are looking for immediate comfort and designers are providing it.

Most of you who purchased a pair of jeans prior to 1990 will have at some point bought a pair of Levi’s Original 501, non stretch jeans.  The blue is so dark that your underwear likely turned pale purple when you dumped everything in the washer together, and the denim was so crunchy that it took 2 days of wearing them before they even resembled comfortable.  No wonder no wanted to wash them!

With premium denim processes allowing the consumer an unlimited choice of “washes” from inky black to heavily distressed (aka pay more for holes) the introduction of another modern fiber, spandex is gaining more and more popularity.

Opponents of introducing spandex to jeans say that sizing is affected (buy a size smaller) and adding too much will make a jean stretch out after an hour of wearing, but most guys love the “broken in” feel right out of the box or from the laundry.  Opt for better brands like AG (Adriano Goldschmiede), Lucky, Seven or Joe’s Jeans.

As with any jean, consider washing in cold with darks (I like Woolite Dark detergent) and if you want to protect the spandex in your jeans from breaking down over time, hang dry.
