The wearing of jeans is very popular. The material is almost always 100 percent cotton and the color is almost always blue, although jeans can now come in a variety of colors.
As jeans are washed and as they age, they fade. It’s fashionable to wear faded jeans. It’s also fashionable, among some people, to wear jeans that have holes in them. In fact, some manufacturers of jeans put holes in the jeans as a way of appealing to young people who like to wear jeans with holes or some other form of damage.
Note: This word is always in the plural when it’s used as a noun. When it’s used as an adjective, it usually takes the singular form (jean jacket).
