Jeans, we all own a pair (or two) and we all love them. How and when were they invented?
Jeans are pants made from denim or dungaree cloth.
They are named after the city of Genoa in Italy. This is where cotton corduroy, called either Jean or Jeane was manufactured.
The first pair of Jeans were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873.
Levi Strauss moved to New York from Germany in 1851 to help his brother who owned a store.
In 1853 he heard about the Gold Rush in the West so he moved to San Francisco and opened up a Western Branch of the family dry goods business.
It was here he sold cotton cloth and other items in his store to gold miners. One of Levi’s customers was called Jacob W. Jacob who was a tailor who made tents, horse blankets, and wagon covers.
One day one of Jacob’s, customers requested a pair of strong heavy-duty pants. Jacob made them from denim that he bought from Levi Strauss. He added strength to the pants by placing copper rivets at the places pants rip the most: pockets and flies.
Jacob soon realised he was onto a winner. When he decided to patent the pants he went to Levi. They became partners soon after and opened a large factory producing Jeans.
Jeans started as a workingman’s pant and over the years has morphed and developed into one of the most loved fashion items worn by young and old.
There is nothing better than a pair of comfortable jeans that hug you in all the right places.
