The Garment Loved By All: Jeans

The Garment Loved By All: Jeans

Cowboys, supermodels, farmers, Presidents and housewives have one garment in common: Jeans.

Jeans are comfortable, durable, attractive, cool and easy to own and wear, hence have a wide appeal among all sections of society.

The Origin Of Jeans

  • A pair of jeans first appeared in the late 19th century when a tailor in Nevada, Jacob Davis, engineered trousers that were made sturdier by the use of rivets. Davis soon took the help of Levi Strauss, then a fabric supplier in San Francisco.
  • Levi’s patented the trousers, realizing that the strengthened denim version would sell really well. Other players like Lee jumped in the manufacturing in 1908 when the patent expired for Levi’s.
  • Many people liked how the fabric changed as it aged, with the washed colors fading in a unique way.

Jeans And The American Western

  • During The WWII era, the pair of jeans, mostly worn by American Western states, started being a symbol of coolness and rebellion, which many movies in the 50’s captured with the help of James Dean and Marlon Brando.
  • A subversive counter-culture was created, symbolized by the pair of jeans, and the establishment ended up banning them in schools, something which added to the frenzy.
  • The 60s saw many middle-class college students wearing them as a symbol of solidarity with the working class. The trend caught on overseas too, starting with Europe.

The Versatile Fabric of Jeans

  • Jeans were from the beginning affordable, extremely durable, relaxing and looked good when they were new and also when they were torn or worn out. There wasn’t a need to wash them that often, and ironing was optional too. Women loved the way they fitted without the need to be tailored professionally.
  • Jeans offered a sprinkle of authenticity and individuality, even after it turned into a commodity. The tone and color became a foundational, neutral fabric to be matched with other fabrics and colors.

Jeans: The Four-Dimensional Material

The appeal for Jeans, apart from the fact they weren’t complicated, was that it was a four-dimensional material. Time changed how it looked, and that became an added attraction.

Traditional, unadorned jeans still looked and felt special, and the eternal appeal of jeans matched with life in general.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
