The denim of jeans

  • Posted on December 20, 2017 at 5:23 pm

The design process is driven by attention to detail, from the leather patch to the smallest rivet. Many of the models featured on superdenim use vintage models as their inspiration for style and fit. Before the denim is woven in the mill, the threads are treated with wax/resin so that the threads are stiff and strong – this helps with the weaving process. It produces a fabric which is very stiff, making the cutting and sewing of the denim easier. The final denim jeans are stiff like cardboard. Originally all jeans were sold like this.

When the raw jeans are wet for the first time the fibres will tighten, making the jeans shrink in size. The amount of shrinkage depends on the fabric and can vary. Some fabrics are pre-treated (sanforised) to reduce the amount of shrinkage you will get. We try our best to simplify this guessing game by giving you the suggested shrinkage for each model, based on a cool wash.

In general, during the first washes the denim fibres constrict and expand. The colour will become darker as the dark blue warp threads loose their sheen as the sizing is removed and they expand to hide the white weft threads. The fabric will also lose its stiffness and the creases will become less defined. The indigo used by our brands is the finest available. Japanese brands invariably use pot-harvested indigo, where the tips are picked, crushed and stored in pots, which are then buried in the indigo fields for around 25 years. The result, a beautiful concentrated indigo that will brighten with wear. The secret to a good fade is to wear the jeans a lot and to wash them very little. Daily wear and tear will cause the indigo to rub off the high abrasion areas of the denim – so the crests and ridges become whiter. The jeans will be personal to you, and the envy of all around you.

Use as little soap as possible and try to use vegetable soaps. Most commercial clothing detergents contain chemicals for brightening and softening your clothes, so you should not use them. Wash your jeans on a cool wash, no higher than 40 degrees. Wash them inside out. Avoid the tumble dryer. Your jeans are a garment designed for wear. Wash them when dirty, wear them when clean.With all this in mind, we hope you enjoy your jeans and they make you happy.

Healthy Hotcakes – a recipe for oat pancakes

  • Posted on December 20, 2017 at 3:21 pm

Low GI Diet Recipe – Oat Pancakes

These are for a filling low GI breakfast, which means that your blood sugar level won’t skyrocket when you eat them, and that breakfast will keep you satisfied for most of the morning. The original idea comes from Staffordshire in the UK where they are traditional, but dying out. In Staffordhsire there used to be shops devoted entirely to these pancakes, and they were cooked side by side with bacon and eggs on the same iron griddle.


20 grams wholemeal flour

100 grams oat flour

10 ml cooking oil

1 egg


10 ml baking powder (=generous teaspoonful)


These quantities are not particularly important and should be varied according to your taste. The wheat flour is in there to make the pancake lighter – you could do without it. The oil is there to make the pancake less likely to stick to the pan, and could be eliminated. The baking flour lightens the pancake (obviously) and you can substitute yeast to leaven the mixture, and while that is the traditional way it slows down the cooking process. If you are not allowed salt, yeast would be preferable to baking powder, but it’s a pain to do the raising. You could probably double the flour content (staying with one egg) which would make the pancakes less easily broken. You can also add a little porridge oats, shredded ginger, cinnamon, and so on. You can use water instead of milk. Nothing is sacrosanct !


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, gradually adding the milk. Small lumps don’t matter. As the batter will thicken as it stands, you may need more milk than you initially added.

The batter should be liquid enough to pour a thin layer into your frying pan. Wait until bubbles break through the pancake and its surface ceases to glisten. Then turn over and cook a little more.


These oat pancakes are very versatile – delicious with bacon and egg.

Or else a little marmalade (better than jam because its strong flavour means you eat less).

Or plain yoghurt (all the natural sugars have been used up in its fermentation, so low GI). Or apple puree. Or sliced apple, oranges etc.

Tips And Ideas For Painting Your Model Tank

  • Posted on December 20, 2017 at 1:48 pm

Are you one of those people who open up a new model tank and catch yourself thinking about what you might do to make that tank a one of a kind? If you think that the decals that came with the tank are for beginners and prefer to give the model your own personal touch then you can definitely do so by applying a custom paint job. It is not hard to do so and will just take a little extra planning and preparation. The end result will be a tank that you can call your own.

Some of the techniques for painting can be a little involved but with practice it is not impossible to learn them. The first thing you must do is to decide whether you want to hand paint your model or airbrush it instead. Airbrushing can produce a great looking paint job; however, it can be hard to add specialized strokes on smaller models. If you will be painting your model a solid color then you can bet that airbrushing will do a great job.

Hand painting your model can be great for adding all sorts of small detail into your paint job. If you are painting a camouflage motif to your tanks then it may be the easiest to use since airbrushing can be very difficult without the use of many different masks. One of the drawbacks to hand painting is that you can easily get the paint too thick or too thin. It can be much harder to control the flow of it as well which can lead to runs and may require a bit of cleanup work.

No matter which technique you use it is very important to allow plenty of drying time between coats so that you get a better looking job. By painting over areas that are still somewhat tacky you can cause runs and smears in the paint job. Another important consideration is whether or not you should use primer. It is not always necessary to prime the models before you paint them but it does allow the paint to adhere much better. It can also help you to find any flaws that could be present in the models.

Before you assemble and paint your model you should clean it. Use some lukewarm soapy water but make sure that it is not too warm. If it is then it could possibly warp the plastic. By removing all the foreign materials from the model the paint will go on much more smoothly.

Industry: Login Steel, Out Cars

  • Posted on December 20, 2017 at 10:10 am

In the end I was able to see first hand one of the six plants Tata Motors in India in early July. And I deserve to take my hat off to India, especially Tata Motors already has a facility that motor vehicle industry that is not exactly small.
Tata Motors plant in Pune, Maharashtra is the second largest after the first plant in Jamshedpur which is active since 1954, after the plant is used as a starting locomotive 1945.
Initially I suspect manufacturing facility in Pune like Tata Motors car assembly plant generally in Karawang, Indonesia. Because of that, when I and a group of journalists asked to fill three vans no glass window, my forehead was wrinkled. “The car rides? As if still further? “Inner me.
“Please you select the van that we have provided. All can sit on the side of the window. We will guide you around the Tata Motors manufacturing facility here, “said the man was an employee of Tata Motors.
Without asking, I then select the leading van and took a stool at the side of the door. My goal, so that when he arrived at the location of the assembly plant, I could go down more quickly.
But my guess fumble. Tata Motors factory is very large, unlike the automobile factories in the country I have ever visited. Tata Motors factories around the facility on foot it seems like you are doing.
Extensive manufacturing facilities in Pune Tata Motors reached 325 hectares. This means three times the size of land owned Toyota’s manufacturing facility in Karawang.
So no wonder if Tata Motors presents ‘fleet travel’ to support guests who do a factory visit. And unique, it turns out the car that we crawled inch by inch in the Tata Motors factory. But if the Toyota or Honda factory in Karawang we simply walk away.
“Imagine if we had to walk, it can be drunk. Huge turn out. It’s hell, one-stop manufacturing. Steel entrance, exit (factory) so the car, “said journalist friend, while comparing with vehicle manufacturing facility in Indonesia.
Yes, that was the fact. Tata Motors factory is not only large, but also has great equipment supported to be able to build the car from zero.
I own a close look at how Tata Motors assisted robotic technology capable, builds transmission system, axle, suspension, chassis, body panels, until the machine. In this factory not only assembled commercial vehicles, but also passenger vehicles, such as the Tata Indica.
So it’s not like the world automobile factories in Indonesia, which only gives us assemble ration-penel body panels, interior, and engine. While the bolts were still imported from Thailand.
What about the quality of the products produced from Tata Motors plant? It tastes pretty common question answered by giving evidence that some truck and bus transmission system Mercedes-Benz was also made at the Tata Motors facility in Pune.
And, the leader in India’s commercial vehicle sales also have to build heavy military vehicles, including large trucks ballistic missile launchers. Remarkably, all can be done at the Tata Motors facility.

How To Choose The Next Perfect Party Dress

  • Posted on December 20, 2017 at 8:02 am

Finding the ideal party dress can be quite a difficult task, especially if you are pressed for time and need your dress within the next week or so. Whether you are buying for an important formal event or just for a night out with the girls, getting the best dress for you ought to be high up on your list of things to do. Buying a party dress isnt as simple as it might seem though, because you need to ensure it fits properly, complements your skin tone and body shape, and that it doesnt highlight any problem areas that you may feel you have.

The first thing to think about when buying a party dress is what colour you would like to go for. Once you have figured this step out you will at least have narrowed down the choices slightly, so you wont have so many different dresses to look at. If you have darker skin you should opt for lighter dress colours, as a black or brown dress wont make you stand out as much. Opt for yellows, greens and pinks or, essentially, anything that will make sure all eyes are on you.

Fairer skin types should avoid white and pale colours at all costs and should instead go for brighter ones. Neutral colours will help to make you look elegant. Those that have olive or medium skin tones will want to wear neutral colours to juxtapose against their skin, or blues and reds for a more striking appearance.

Next is the issue of what style of dress will suit your body shape. If you have a large bust you should go for a dress with a square neck and wider straps, so as to offer more support. Those with a smaller bust look amazing in spaghetti strap dresses, although high necklines also work perfectly. If you feel a little self-conscious about your middle you should never wear a dress made from satin or silk, as these materials are notorious for being less than flattering. A skater dress or empire waistline dress will help to hide anything you dont feel confident about around your middle.

Pear shaped ladies with wide hips should stick to dresses in one colour or, if you are determined to wear prints, only wear them on your top half so as to detract attention from your hips. Empire waistline dresses and straight cut dresses work wonders.

If you dont think youve got much of a waistline, try wearing a skater dress or a flared skirt with net petticoats, as this will provide the illusion of voluptuous curves.
