The Truth about Polyester in Denim Jeans

In the world of Bullet Blues, we love all types of denim, but there is one fiber in particular that’s currently making waves. Despite there being mixed opinions about denim jeans that include polyester fibers within their blends, when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of garment construction, this is actually one of the best fibers to wear.

Not only is polyester extremely durable and abrasion-resistant, but compared to cotton blends alone, it is superior in every way. Sure, with 100% cotton jeans you get that softness against the skin, but with a stretchy pair of polyester jeans, the pros are worth noting.

As Polyester is heat treated, cooled then stretched, this means that it can withstand more impact than other denim blends. This synthetic thread is actually one of the finest compositions any retailer can use, and the end result will always be stronger, better quality jeans.

Shoppers understand all too well how difficult it can be to find a pair of denim jeans that will last for years rather than a matter of a few weeks. This is where the importance of quality garment construction comes into play. Sometimes, if you want to get your hands on jeans that look and feel the part, you have to track down the ‘holy grail’ of genuine denim retailers.

At Bullet Blues, we are 100% dedicated to sourcing the finest caliber of denim products before we even consider selling these on the retail market. Every single pair of jeans that we stock here has been tried, tested and approved for its comfort, fit, style and above all, its high quality blend.

Our top priority is to bring you classic-meets-modern denim that will last you a lifetime. In order to achieve our brand values, we continually strive to go and above and beyond when it comes to using the latest denim production methods. You will notice that some of our denim products feature a small percentage of polyester fiber, and this fiber content is essential for enabling an improved fit, durability and finish.

For example, our Bullet Blues ‘Cowboy’ designer jeans for men offer a unique blend made up of 75% cotton, 24% polyester and 1% spandex. Please note that we have 2 men’s ‘Cowboy’ designs in total, so you can choose from a light wash and a dark wash, depending on preference. By including these 3 separate fibers, the result is a relaxed fit, easy-wearing wardrobe essential. We want you to be able to enjoy our denim and get as much wear out of your jeans as possible. It’s this small percentage of polyester that makes all the difference.


When shopping for that perfect pair of jeans, it’s important to be able to rely on their quality once you have committed to buying them. At Bullet Blues we understand that some denim brands do compromise on their fiber blends if it means selling products faster. However, our jeans provide a completely opposite reassurance to the wearer – instant comfort from the very first wear, without compromising on product quality. What’s even better is the fact that the polyester blends we use are reliable when it comes to the stretch recovery of our jeans.

But don’t just take our word for it, check out Eat, Sleep, Denim’s stellar review of some Frame black skinnies which contain a polyester blend.

Another set of polyester-fortified jeans we currently stock here at Bullet Blues are the ‘Bombshell’ designer jeans for women, and both of these have the added advantage of a 10% polyester blend. While this figure may seem minimal, their wearability is a force to be reckoned with. In 100% cotton jeans you always run the risk of side effects like shrinking when you go to wash the fabric, so this is exactly why you need to invest in a comfier alternative like our ‘Bombshell’ jeans. Again, you can choose from a light or a darker wash denim, but both will see you through this season and the next.

We live in a day and age where people want jeans that are going to last for a long while, so sustainable fashion is certainly the way forward for the denim market from here on out.
