What do you know about Jeans?

Jeans are pants made from denim . They were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873 . Jeans are named after the city of Genoa in Italy, a place where cotton corduroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured.

Jacob W. Davis was a tailor from Reno, Nevada. The idea of making jeans came to mind when one day, a customer ordered a pair of sturdy pants that could withstand hard work. He made them from denim that he bought from Levi Strauss & Co, who were running a business of dry goods. That’s how jeans were invented.

When Jacob wanted to patent them, he wrote to Levi Strauss, and they became partners.

The most interesting part is jeans were first working clothes. They were made for labourers and miners. Because denim was only sturdy and durable cloth. jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers especially members of the greaser subculture. And now it has become a trend.
