Happy Birthday Blue Jeans!
What was once an item necessary for work during the gold rush is now a staple in every wardrobe. From $10 "comfies" to $1000+ exclusives, blue jeans have revolutionized over the years. They've come in tons of colors, shapes, and styles--with a fitting for everyone.
Debuting on May 20, 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob David were granted a U.S. patent for the rivets used to strenghten their denim pants. From work gear, to weekend musts, and now even high fashion pieces, blue jeans just might be one of the most fundamental parts of fashion, ever.
Forever thankful to Mr. Srauss and Mr. David, we say Happy Birthday Blue Jeans! Many more!
