How should men pick the perfect pair of jeans?

Jeans used to be easier to buy for men, in the past, as they were very similar, but nowadays we see different styles available, which makes it harder for them to find the perfect pair, so today we will help you find those jeans that will match with you.

“The great part about jeans is that once you have found the perfect type, it would be easy to wear them, as denim is easy to combine with almost everything”, advised Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

Here are the steps you need to follow when you want to pick the perfect pair of jeans for you:

The nylon fabric

The Nylon Fabric

Physical and Chemical Properties of Nylon Fabric

The Nylon compositions are polyamides with recurring amide groups. They contain carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen elements.

Strength: Nylon has good tenacity and the strength is not lost with age. Nylon has a high strength to weight ratio. It is one of the lightest textile fibres is at the same time also one of the strongest. It is one of the fibres which are added at the points of wear such as knees and seats of jeans and toes and heels of socks. The strength of the nylon fabric is lost when wet.

Elasticity: Nylon has good elasticity which makes it much suitable for the apparel purposes. Nylon like other fibres has its own limit of elasticity. If stretched too much, it will not completely recover its shape. The high elongation and excellent elastic recovery of nylon contributes to the outstanding performance in hosiery. Nylon hosiery recovers to its original shape at knees and ankles instead of bagging.

Resilience: Nylon fabrics have excellent resilience. Nylon fabrics retain their smooth appearance and the wrinkles from the usual daily activities can be removed easily.

Drapability: Fabrics of nylon filament yarn have excellent draping qualities. The drape of the fabrics made from nylon can be varied depending on the yarn size. The light weight sheer fabrics of nylon night gowns have high-draping quality. The medium-weight dress fabrics can drape very nicely.

Heat Conductivity: The heat conductivity of the nylon fabrics vary depending upon the fabric construction, the type of nylon (staple/filament) used in the construction etc.

Absorbency: Nylon fabrics have low absorbency. The low absorbency of the fabrics tends to be advantageous and also disadvantageous. The main advantage of the nylons low absorbency is that the water remains on the surface of the fabrics and runs off the smooth fabric and hence dries quickly. This property makes the nylon fabrics suitable for raincoats and shower curtains. Nylon’s low absorbency has a disadvantage in that the fabric feels clammy and uncomfortable in warm, humid weather.

“Nylon has excellent abrasion resistance, also the excellent elasticity would mean that the nylon materials return to their original length and shreds the wrinkles or creases”, added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal president of Grupo Denim.
