Just bought a pair of denims online and it states: "delave effect." What exactly does that mean?

I'd love to see a german brand advertise a "washed effect." Anyone knows the german word for shower/showering will appreciate this.

In the northern hemisphere, jeans will fade counterclockwise, whereas in the southern hemisphere, they'll fade clockwise.

if you cross the equator enough times while weaving the denim, you can get a combination of left and right hand twill, known as broken twill.

You mean duscheneffekt/geduschteffekt? I guess that would be pretty funny.

Took me a second.
