What are the Difference Between Men’s and Women’s Jeans?

Denim jeans are a wardrobe staple for both men and women. They come in all shapes, colors, cuts and sizes. But the question is: what’s the difference between men’s and women’s jeans? To answer this question we have to dive into denim history first.

History of Denim

Denim has been around since 15th century France where peasants wore it as workwear because of its durability, breathability and strength against abrasion. Let me break it down for you:

As time went on, people from higher class levels started wearing them too; they were even popular with French aristocracy at one point! Women could also wear them but only if they didn’t want to be seen as promiscuous or indecent (hence why many religious orders wear them).

Fast forward to 18th century, when the Industrial Revolution took off and women started working in factories. They wanted it as a protective layer against their male counterparts so they could move around more freely and do all sorts of jobs without being afraid for losing this modesty.

And finally in the 20th century, denim became an icon signifying rebellion — especially for youth culture!

So what are the difference between men’s jeans and women’s?


Well, there are various types of cuts available but generally speaking men have straight leg cuts while women have tapered ones because we can’t show our skin past our knees otherwise people would think that we’re not wearing any underwear (or worse!). I personally prefer high-waisted cuts because it elongates the body.

– Men’s jeans have straight leg cuts.

– Women’s jeans come in tapered and high-waisted cuts.

These are all the different types of denim cuts available, but there are more: slim, relaxed or baggy; dark blue, light blue or white. It just depends on what you’re looking for!


Both men and women wear denim jeans, but there are also different types of materials for them:

– Men’s jeans come in cotton or wool.

– Women’s jeans come in cotton, linen or wool.


And last but not least, men’s jeans have less complicated measurement than women’s.

Women’s sizing is complicated because of the many variations in body types and shapes. In most cases, pants sizes are indicated with a single number; however for women it tends to be difficult due to all these differences – sometimes they’re measured by waist size or length. Men’s measurements tend to use both things like height and weight which makes them easier than women since you can just go off those numbers alone without having any confusion about how big your hips might be as well!
