The History of The Denim Jeans

Denim jeans are a very popular item of clothing in today's world of fashion. For many years they have been a staple item in men's and women's wardrobes across the world. From designer brands to high street stores you will find these denim style trousers almost everywhere and whatever your budget or your taste in fashion there is a pair out there that is bound to be perfect.

The History of the Denim JeansTheir history is one that goes back numerous years. Way back in 1873 the style of trousers was first invented. A man named Jacob Davis as well as Calvin Rogers and Levi Strauss together created the first range of denim blue bottoms. They were originally designed for cowboys and back when they were initially designed, only manual workers would wear them as a form of sturdy work wear. Today they are not considered as a garment dedicated to work wear. With progression of time, further kinds of slacks suitable to be worn in a working environment have been invented.

This particular style did not become popular until the 1950's when teenagers began wearing them to make a fashion statement. Actor James Dean wore a pair in the film 'Rebel without a Cause' which propelled them to much popularity. The trousers have become prevalent because of their easy to wear style and versatile nature. A pair will go with almost anything. Tops, jackets, shirts, t shirts and jumpers, can all be worn in order to create a variation of casual, stylish and sophisticated looks. Back when they were first invented, this item of clothing could be purchased for no more than $1.50 in the states. These days the average pair will sell for around $40 each.

There are many elements in the design of jeans. The used and worn effect that appears on some styles is created by washing the bottoms before they are sold which has led to an entire range of different styles being introduced into the industry. In today's world you can now find a variety of styles available. Skinny, baggy, straight, stone wash, slouchy, boyfriend and cropped remain sought after and can be found in many denim collections whether designer or high street.

There are many designer labels where you will come across a collection of denim bottoms in their clothing range. Levis is a well-known designer of denim clothing. Amongst many other names this is a brand that began life as a jeans brand and has stayed true to its roots. Even today the designer label still produces high quality designer denim wear and offers this to all its customers.
