Some things you didn’t know about jeans:
Making of one pair of Levi 501s takes 37 different sewing actions.
The oldest known Pair of Levi’s jeans was found in 1997 and was 100 years old.
The first jeans came in two styles, indigo blue and brown.
The first name for jeans was “waist overalls.”
The first label ever to be on a piece of clothing was a red flag that was sewn next to the back pocket Levi Strauss’ jeans.
Jeans were first colored with indigo because a darker color hides the dirt better.
In a time when jeans were worn by factory workers, jeans for men had zippers on the front, but jeans for women had Zippers on the side.
A boutique in the New York East Village called “Limbo” was the first store to wash a new Pair of jeans to get a used, worn effect. It became a new fashion hit.
Twenty thousand tons of indigo are produced every year.
The name “denim” comes from the name of a fabric called serge, originally made in Nîmes, France.
May 20, 1873, is considered the birthday of blue jeans. It is the date when Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss and Co. listed a patent for blue jeans.
Blue jeans were banned at certain places like schools, theaters, and restaurants in the ’50s because they were seen as a form of rebellion against conformism.
Over 50% of denim is Produced in Asia, specifically China, India, and Bangladesh.
Blue jeans became popular for the first time outside of the US because American soldiers in World War II wore jeans when they were off-duty.
