National Blue Jeans Day is celebrated on December 5th in the USA. We do not know people who would not have such things in their closet. Blue jeans are a real classic that is difficult to exchange for something else. During their existence, they have undergone many modifications, but remained a favorite for Americans!
In the United States in 1873, the first Levi Strauss & Co. denim overalls were introduced. Levi Strauss ended up in New York by the will of fate: he came to his older brothers, who kept a store here. Two years later, the man opened his own business. Strauss met Jacob Davis, who was a tailor and often purchased fabric from the store. This acquaintance brought unprecedented results: soon the men began to cooperate. They patented a fabric reinforced with rivets – the devices reinforced the area of pockets and fasteners.
During their work, they managed to try different materials, but denim was best suited for work clothes. Some narrators claim that the creators originally sold blue-dyed canvas trousers and only then began using denim. If we turn to an earlier history, then jeans originated in France or Italy, coloring pigments were delivered from India.
In the 1930s, jeans became widespread throughout the United States, appearing in cowboy films. During World War II they were worn by soldiers. In the 50s, young people also fell in love with trousers.
It is noteworthy that:
- initially, the fabric was only blue due to the cheapness of the dye;
- the largest pair of jeans is the size of a building with 22 floors, they were developed by the Chilean chain “Paris”;
- the smallest trousers are only 1 cm, they were painstakingly sewn by the Turkish tailor Dervish Ary;
- there are jeans that slow down aging – so the Japanese developers assure. They simply filled the tissue with amino acids.
