So this Goldsign skinny jean (the misfit motif) has an interesting fabric composition: 44% rayon/29% cotton/25% cupro/2%. Apparently this gives it 35% stretch, which is described as 'tensile' at Poplife, and the press release, I would imagine.
Sounds like an interesting yarn blend. I've only ever encountered Cupro in fine gauge knits, but it has potential in jeans I guess, as it's from the cotton plant, and appears to be eco-friendly to produce, unlike cotton.
