I’m Aaron Tucker, and this is, “How are jeans put together?” The process of putting together a pair of jeans is pretty much as cool as jeans is pretty much as cool as jeans are themselves. Starts, of course, with the materials being picked – raw materials, it’s cotton, cotton being interwoven with other materials to create a thread. Then, you get into the dyeing process. But, more specifically, the construction of jeans starts once you have full sheets of denim. The denim is usually laid in stacks of 100 jeans. It’s kind of crazy, stacks of 100 sheets of denim for mass-produced jeans, when you think about your Levis, your Lee jeans, things that are made – nothing that’s really too high-end or designer-specific. These 100 sheets of jeans are all put together, and the patterns cut out. From those patterns that are being cut out, the jeans are constructed by your pant legs, your pockets, any rivets, belt loops. And a lot of this stuff is all done by a machine until you get into more specifics, such as different finishes, treatments, or distressing.
