Personally, I never thought too much about it although…I felt it a lot. In New Orleans, I had to have my display next to David Hall of Gusset Jeans, to receive my 1st lesson in jeans anatomy.
Ladies and gentlemen, listen to me: ordinary jeans are constructed with a single center seam from front to back and up the legs. These seams are usually sewn with a “fell” fold. This means you are wearing jeans that have 8 ply seams, and they all come together at the same place. Very uncomfortable for both men & women. In 1987, David Hall invented the Gusset Jeans incorporating a “delta” shaped piece of material sewn into the crotch of the jean. This allows stress to be redistributed around the crotch area, allowing greater freedom of movement, comfort and strength. As an added benefit, the original set-turn-and-topstitch construction is stronger and less thick. The result is 3 ply leg seams, and only 9 ply thick at the crotch (not 16!). Now, everybody reading my Blog buys at least one to feel comfortable when reading my daily posts. Made in USA. Gusset Jeans.
