You are always right with a Denim
Brief history of jeans and denims
Denim was invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873. Jeans are named after a city of Genoa in Italy ,a place where cotton corduroy called either jeans or Jeane was produced.
Levi Strauss relocated to New York from Germany where he joined his brother who had a dry goods store in 1851. In 1853 he heard about Gold rush so he relocated to San Francisco to establish a branch of the family dry store in the west ,one day one of his costumers Jacob W. Davis ordered a pair of sturdy pants that could withstand hard work , he made them from denim that he bought from Levi Strauss and co and made them stronger by placing copper rivets at the places pants rip the most. When he wanted to patent them, he wrote to Levi Strauss , and they became partners. They opened a bigger factory and that is how jeans were born.
Jeans marked culture of the last 140 years probably more than we think ,they were first working clothes ,then symbol of disobedience only to become fashion trends.
