Freebase

  1. Denim

    Denim is a rugged cotton twill textile, in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the fabric, which distinguishes denim from cotton duck. It is characteristic of any indigo denim that only the warp threads are dyed, whereas the weft threads remain plain white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the fabric shows the blue warp threads, the other side shows the white weft threads. This is why jeans are white on the inside and what makes denim's fading characteristics unique compared to every other fabric.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Denim

    den′im, n. coloured twilled cotton goods for overalls, &c.

Examples of denim in a Sentence

    The best thing that you can do is start off with one product and perfect that, focus on that and not have too much inventory, what we want to be known for is our denim, and once we’ve created a base, there are lots of other things that we want to have that fit a female body but present masculinity.

  2. Your Happy Memories Porter:

    Say you come home with eight shades of blue, lay all the swatches out and compare them to each other. You will start to see the subtle differences between each color.
