Denim is a fabric of many possibilities. Although made of cotton, it can also be combined with other materials such as polyester, elastane, rayon and Lyocell to name a few. Fabric selection is based on many things; fit, wash, style of jean and seasonality. A rigid denim is perfect for relaxed fits and a stretch denim for slimmer styles. Weight is also important, distressed styles with holes and abrasions require a heavier denim and those without can be lighter in weight.
