From Working Class Hero to Fashion Phenom

It was in 1873 when business partners Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis had THE light bulb moment. The partners first thought of jeans when a customer ordered for a pair of pants that could withstand hard work. It just so happens that Davis was a tailor and Strauss had a tough fabric called “Serge de Nîmes” ( or denim) he brought home from a trip in Europe. With Strauss material, Davis fashioned a pair of pants with rivets to ensure durability, thus jeans were born.

Because of their durability, denim pants were originally for mine laborers, farm workers, and cowboys. It wasn’t until the 1950’s when denim pants got the recognition it deserves. And it owes its phenomenal popularity to Hollywood hunks Marlon Brando and James Dean when they wore them in their films. At first, the society didn’t want to accept this new fashion phenomenon, especially in conservative communities. That’s because jeans were seen as a symbol of youth rebellion. However, by 60’s and 70’s, as communities began to loosen up a bit, denim pants were finally accepted as part of every day fashion.

From then on, denim pants popularity skyrocketed as it became a fashion staple all over the world. In fact, they became one of the most in-demand piece of clothing everywhere as people of all genders and ages wear them.
