Jeans started out as work clothes. Jeans fabric is a strong, blue, twill cotton, sometimes called denim. Levi Strauss invented the blue jeans. Around 1850, he made tough canvas pants for gold prospectors in California in the US. When he ran out of canvas, he made pants using a strong type of cotton that was quickly called “denim". The finishing using rivets on the pockets came from a collaboration with Jacob Davis. In 1873, they applied for a patent for this method.
Jeans back then were practical, comfortable and tough as nails. Not much has changed in that regard. The types of jeans, however, are strongly influenced by fashion. For example, there are slim-fit jeans, skinny jeans, flares, boot cut, boyfriend, loose-fit, baggy jeans and on and on. Actually, jeans have always been sexy. With a simple white T-shirt and a nice pair of shoes or boots, every pair of jeans turns into sexy jeans. There are both men's and women's jeans. These days, jeans are a basic element in everyone's clothing and essential in our fashion world.
Jeans as a fashion statement
In addition to many types of models of jeans, there are also many types of washings, colours and finishings. There are also red, yellow, green and pink jeans. Still, the most common colour is blue. But black and grey jeans also sell well, especially in the winter; just as white jeans do in the summer. You can really make a fashion statement with a pair of jeans. You're hip and trendy in skinny jeans, fashionable in boyfriend jeans and a trendsetter in flares. But this can change completely in just a couple of years, of course…
The best-known model among jeans is the Five Pocket jeans. This model has two rear pockets, two slash pockets at the front and a small coin pocket inside the right front pocket.
