Is there any other garment out there that's as hardworking as the humble pair of jeans? Universally beloved by all, denim trousers have risen from being merely the tough workwear of factory labourers to gracing the covers of the best fashion magazines. High-quality jeans are a wardrobe staple, and many people wear their favourite pair every day. They're the ultimate combination of style and practicality. Comfortable, casual and cool, it's no surprise that denim has been the fabric of choice among trendy types for decades, and it doesn't look like fashion's obsession with it will wane any time soon.
The history of jeans: from workwear to wow!
Denim fabric originated in the Italian city of Genoa, although it was actually more like corduroy than the fabric we know and love today. This popular material was exported all across Europe. When the textile merchants of Nimes, a city in southern France, tried to recreate it, they produced something slightly different, and denim (from 'de Nimes') was born. Denim really took off in 1972 thanks to Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis who added copper rivets to make their trousers more durable. Initially worn by manual workers because of its hardwearing properties, denim's popularity skyrocketed after James Dean sported a pair of jeans in the film 'Rebel Without a Cause'. Teenagers everywhere were desperate to emulate Dean's edgy, fashion-forward look, and jeans have been a permanent fixture in the wardrobes of the world's best-dressed ever since.
