Question: How Do Manufactures Cut Corners In Designing Jeans?
Answer: The way to skimp when manufacturing a pair of jeans is first in the fabric. Cheaper cotton, inexpensive way to spin the cotton (open end spinning as apposed to ring spun), and skimping on the washing process. Resin is an expensive process added to the jean. It adds a beautiful sheen, and brings life to the fabric.
When premium jean companies want to cut cost the first thing they do is reduce or completely cut out the resins. To add softness to a jean the least expensive way to do it is with fabric softener. Silicone is much more expensive but the touch to the hand is wonderful.
