Not surprisingly, Wikipedia has a page about denim (here), where it tells you that it is a sturdy cotton warp-faced twill textile in which the weft passes under the warp threads and produces the familiar diagonal ribbing that distinguishes it from cotton duck. Pretty exciting :) What did surprise me though is the fading has specific names.
Patterns of fading in jeans are part of the main allure of dry denim and are seen as a way of “personalizing” the garment and have specific names:
- Combs or honeycombs – These are faded lines that are found behind the knees.
- Whiskers – Faded streaks that surround the crotch area of the jeans.
- Stacks – These are created by having the inseam of the jeans hemmed a few inches longer than the actual leg length. The extra fabric then stacks on top of the shoe, causing a faded area to form around the ankle, extending up to the calf area.
- Train tracks – These appear on the out seams of the denim. This pattern showcases the selvage by forming two sets of fades which resemble train tracks.
I always just categorized them into good, medium and old ones for housework, mowing the lawn. Anyway, here are the images :)

Just a plain one this time but here is another free texture of blue denim from a jeans pocket.
Here is three blue jeans denim textures that I took the other day. As you can tell the bottom two images are the same, I just played with the second one in photoshop to fade it, make it more cyan and add the white vignetting.

Denim Jeans Fabric Textures

Anyway it got me thinking that I really need to diversify a bit. So the next few posts will be images by others that I have selected. Unfortunately they are ...
Hi, here is the back pocket with orange stitching of some brown jeans. I think it is just cotton jeans rather than denim, but anyway should be a good fabric or material texture.
