indicate that denim blue jeans remain popular, including frayed denim jeans.
Denim has enjoyed widespread popularity as a tough, versatile fabric for many years. Webster’s Dictionary reported in 1965 that the name “denim” reflects the origins of the fabric in the French town of Nimes, where it was known as serge “de Nimes” (of Nimes).
