Have you stopped wearing them completely or do you wear them all the time and dress them up or down as the occasion requires? How does denim fit into your life? These are the sorts of questions Daniel Miller and Sophie Woodward set out to answer in Blue Jeans: The Art of the Ordinary , which looks primarily at the relationship North Londoners have to with this material that can be found in almost all parts of the world.

The conclusions they present are applicable far beyond this sample, however, and offer us a peek elements of human nature that go beyond culture. The premise for Blue Jeans was born out of a paper titled A Manifesto for a Study of Denim , where Miller and Woodward first flagged the ubiquity of denim and that denim itself has a particular nature: it is often sold as distressed and is often the choice for people when they don't know what to wear or are worried about what to wear. While these choices are personal, there is an underlying consistency that speaks to how we respond to social pressure, insecurities and personal fears.

Denim figures prominently in these scenarios, and while it is not the answer per se, it functions as a mediator. It has its own global reputation as comfortable, stylish, and ordinary, and this allows the denim-clad to slip between casual and formal with ease. There is a typology to jeans. In North London, beyond the commercial distinction e. Jeans worn at work or for going out differ from jeans worn casually around the house or for running errands.

The former are more likely to be a darker wash or colored, less distressed, more fitted, and paired with dressier shoes; these are "dressier" jeans. In the latter case, the denim is typically a lighter blue, more relaxed fit, more distressed, and usually worn with sneakers or more casual shoes; these are "casual" jeans. Jeans in the dressy group can ultimately be relegated to more casual wear with time, but rarely will jeans from the casual group move into dressy category. While there are general guidelines for categorizing jeans, there is also room for personalization.

For example, skinny jeans by their nature have been relegated to the dressier category: they're fitted, usually a dark wash or colored, and typically less worn by requirement as it takes away from their "sharpness. However, as an accepted type of denim that has been assigned to a larger category, they have been adapted to suit personal preferences and maintain personal comfort: for example, they're paired with longer tunic-style tops to hide thighs for those who are conscious of that body area, and dressed down with ballet flats to make them suitable for a more casual look 2.

These acts of adaptation are important to note because they specifically address concerns that skinny jeans are uncomfortable. They illustrate some of the steps taken to "get jeans just right"—a phrase that refers both to the wearer and the situation 3. Miller and Woodward show that this happens in both genders, though men appear to be less bound to managing shifts in fashion and are freer to adapt the general categories to the brand or fit that suits them.

For example, though one of the men interviewed had a few variations of jeans—distressed, black, light blue, and indigo blue—they all followed the same fit: straight leg 4. In this case, "just right"—the fit which the wearer was most comfortable in—formed the basis around which typologies could be set.

In the case of skinny jeans, "just right" is something mediated along with the typology. More than any other type of clothing, jeans stress comfort, which is why the underlying sense of "just right" is so important. But discussions with North Londoners about what exactly constitutes comfortable reveals immense variation.

For example, some might say that wearing jeans in hot weather is uncomfortable, but people in tropical countries seem to wear jeans more frequently than people in the UK 5. Seller Inventory n.
