Vintage Denim Jackets For Men – How To Care For Yours

Denim has a strong hold over the hearts of many, but there are a great number of myths surrounding its care. Just how should vintage denim jackets for men be cared for? And can you really wear denim or jeans until they walk themselves to the laundry basket?

Most people, men and women have at least one pair of blue denim jeans and probably a jacket as well. Denim has a reputation for being hardwearing and not requiring anything like regular washing, but is this true? One of the reasons that clothes survive to become vintage clothing is because they have been well cared for, and denim is no exception. A vintage denim jacket is made from blue and white cotton threads in a finely-interwoven twill weave. It is this process that gives it its strength and durability. However, cotton, like other materials, ages and becomes weaker over time, particularly in areas that have constant pressure or movement. If you look at an aging pair of jeans, you will see that the knees are the first to start fraying. On a jacket, it is usually the collar and elbows. Dirt and grime, especially if it has an acidic base are likely to speed up this aging process, so the right care is vital if it is to last. Most individuals put off washing new denim articles for as long as possible, anything up to six months or even a year. But, if your jacket has been worn in muddy conditions or hot weather that has made you sweat, it is probably best to get it in the wash sooner rather than later.
