The Perfect Sweater for Winter

I have lived in the southern United States all of my life. Thankfully, the state I live in doesn’t usually experience much harsh, cold weather during the winter months; however, I do need to bundle up in something warm when heading outside from time to time. Oftentimes, I reach for my favorite sweater. The versatile sweater I’m referring to is a leopard print, cashmere cardigan. I absolutely love the way cashmere feels against my skin. I adore this soft sweater because I can wear it to the grocery store, to church, to the movies, or even to a holiday gathering. On this blog, I hope you will discover the winter clothing staples that look great with any type of outfit. Enjoy!

A Few Reasons You Should Buy Raw, Selvedge Denim Jeans Made In America

Denim jeans have been around since the early 1800s when they were worn strictly as work clothes because of their durability. Since then, they have become mainstream attire for everyone. As the demand for denim pants increased, the manufacturers had to come up with a faster, less expensive way to make them. This meant the denim was made on larger looms and the edges were no longer finished, meaning they could easily fray. In addition, manufacturers started washing the denim to make it softer and give it an already worn look. The next time you are out shopping for denim jeans, consider going with raw, selvedge denim and enjoy the following benefits.

Durability

To have the selvedge edges, denim must be produced on a shuttle loom. This loom not only finishes the edges but creates a tighter weave. The denim will be more durable and last much longer than if it had been made on a projectile loom.

Cost-Effective

In general, raw, selvedge denim is going to cost more than other varieties. However, because the denim itself is more durable and will last longer, you will not have to buy new jeans as frequently. If a quality pair of jeans cost $200 and lasts you ten years, you are paying $20 per year. If you only pay $40 for a lesser-quality pair, and they only last you one year you are actually paying twice as much for the lesser-quality pants.

Customized

When you buy "distressed" jeans, they are faded and worn by machinery and will look like everyone else's jeans. When you buy raw denim, it may take longer to have that "lived-in" look, but when it does it will be to your body. The little lines that form as you sit in them will fit to you. As they wear, they will become one of the most comfortable pair of pants you own.

Low Maintenance

Raw, selvedge denim jeans are easy to care for. Because of the durability, you will not have to repair them often. In addition, as long as they are not too smelly, a simple wipe down with a wet cloth is all that is needed. These jeans do not need to be laundered after every wear.

If jeans are a regular part of your attire, you should consider always buying raw, selvedge denim jeans made in America. Not only will you be helping keep jobs here in the U.S., you will have pants that will look good, feel great, and last a long time.
