Reference

Reference information:
Bull denim is typically 3X1 twill woven (most denim is 2X1, though some is 3X1). Weight varies, though it's mostly heavy weight. It's distinguishing feature is that it's piece dyed. Standard denim is made from a dyed warp thread (traditioanlly indigo, of course) and a white weft. (There are denims made with two colored threads, and colored warp and black weft has been fashionable at various times.) Bull denim is made from undyed warp and weft, and then the finished fabric is dyed.

So it doesn't have the variegated appearance of regular denim.
