The history of jeans

The beginnings
Denim and jeans - where do the names come from? Jeans are trousers made from denim. Some of the earliest American blue jeans were made by Jacob Davis, Calvin Rogers, and Levi Strauss in 1873. Starting in the 1950s,

jeans, originally designed for cowboys, became popular among teenagers. Historic brands include Levi's, Lee, and Wrangler. Jeans come in various fits, including skinny, tapered, straight, boot cut, Mommy-cut, maternity, and flare. Jeans are now a very popular form of casual dress around the world, and have been so for decades. They come in many styles and colors; however, "blue jeans" are particularly identified with American culture, especially the American Old West. The word "jeans" comes from the French phrase bleu de Genes, literally the blue of Genoa. Jeans fabric, or denim, originated in the French town of Nmes, from which 'denim' (de Nmes) gets its name. Denim trousers for sailors Denim trousers were made in Chieri, a town near Turin in Italy, during the Renaissance and were popularized in the 19th century. These trousers were sold through the harbor of Genoa, which was the capital of the independent Republic of Genoa which was long an important naval and trading power. The Genoese Navy required all-purpose trousers for its sailors that could be worn while swabbing the deck and the denim material met this need. These trousers were laundered by dragging them in nets behind the ship, and the sea water and sun would gradually bleach them to white. Jeans (at the time known as "dungarees"), along with light-blue stenciled "cambric" shirts, became part of the official working uniform of the United States Navy in the first part of the 20th Century. A working uniform was selected to protect traditional uniforms from becoming soiled or torn in the ship's rugged working environment, leaving them for ceremonial occasions. They were first issued in 1901, and were originally straightlegged but by the mid-20th century the trousers became Boot-cut style to permit ventilation in the ship's hotter working environments and to ensure sailors could shed their dungarees if they fell overboard or had to abandon ship. The same type of uniform consisting of jeans and chambray tops was issued as prison uniforms in some correctional facilities mainly because of the durability and lowmaintenance of denim which was deemed suitable for the rugged manual labor carried out by inmates. A popular example of the use of denim as prison wear can be seen in the film Cool Hand Luke.

Evolution of the garment

Copper rivets for reinforcing pockets are a characteristic feature of blue jeans.

The blue denim fabric of jeans Initially, jeans were simply sturdy trousers worn by workers, especially in the factories during World War II. During this period, men's jeans had the zipper down the front, whereas women's jeans had the zipper down the right side. By the 1960s, both men's and women's jeans had the zipper down the front. Historic photographs indicate that in the decades before they became a staple of fashion, jeans generally fit quite loosely, much like a pair of overalls without the bib. Indeed, until 1960, Levi Strauss denominated its flagship product "waist overalls" rather than "jeans". After James Dean popularized them in the movie Rebel Without a Cause, wearing jeans by teenagers and youth and/or young adults became a symbol of youth rebellion during the 1950s. Because of this, they were sometimes banned in theaters, restaurants and schools. Nowadays, however, jeans are worn to many types of venues and events, even some events that ostensibly require formal attire.

During the sixties the wearing of jeans became more acceptable, and by the seventies it had become general fashion in the United States for casual wear.[4] In the 1970s the denim industry introduced the Stone-Washing technique developed by GWG also known as "Great Western Garment Co.". Donald Freeland of Edmonton, Alberta pioneered the method, which helped to bring denim to a larger and more versatile market. Acceptance of jeans continued through the 1980s and 1990s to the point where jeans are now a wardrobe staple, with the average North American owning seven pairs. Currently, jeans may be seen worn by people of both genders and all ages. Manufacturing Processes. Dyeing Traditionally, jeans are dyed to a blue color using indigo dye. Some other colors that can be achieved are pink, blue, yellow, black, and white. These colors are achieved by coloring other fabrics to resemble jeans. Approximately 20 million tons of indigo are produced annually for this purpose, though only a few grams of the dye are required for each pair of these trousers. For more information on dyeing, refer to denim and the discussion there of using pigment dyes. Pre-shrinking of jeans In the 1970s Hal Burgess first marketed "pre-washed" jeans. He was a salesman for his father, who owned a large jean manufacturing company in Cartersville, Georgia. While on a sales trip, there was a flood in the hotel room where Burgess was storing jeans. He asked the hotel owner if he could rent out the pool to wash the flooded jeans. The jeans shrunk but Hal decided to market them as 'pre-washed' jeans and sold them two sizes smaller than they were initially labeled. This was the first time 'pre-shrunk' jeans were marketed. Used look created by sandblasting Many consumers in Western societies are willing to pay extra for jeans that have the appearance of being used. To give the fabrics the right worn look sandblasting is used. Sandblasting has the risk of causing silicosis to the workers, and in Turkey, more than 5,000 workers in the textile industry have been stricken with this disease, and 46 people are known to have died. Sweden's Fair Trade Center conducted a survey among 17 textile companies that showed very few were aware of the dangers caused by

sandblasting jeans manually. Several companies said they would abolish this technique from their own production.
13 fun facts about Blue Jeans!

If theres single a universal piece of clothing that has been consistently popular and fashionable from the age of cowboys and further back, thats

But it turns out the idea of Blue Jeans as something that originated in the old West is actually a popular misconception. Did you know that jean-like trousers have been dated back as far as 16th century India? Although the term jeans is somewhat more recent , jeans in fact represent a rather timeless fashion trend which probably comes as no surprise to you. The history of Jeans: Origins What you might not know is how the word Jeans was derived from the name of place where these special pants were originally sold: the harbor town of Genoa, in Italy. According to popular legends, people referred to those sturdy work clothes as the bleu de Gnes, and thus the term Blue Jeans became popular. Similarly, the name of the raw material which was use in the manufacture of such pants was named after the French town of Nmes, thus the word Denim (as abbreviated from de Nmes). Some interesting facts about Blue Jeans: 1) The common idea that Jeans were invented by cowboys is more of romanticism than a matter of fact. Although they did favor these kinds of pants because it was durable, it was not invented at the time. 2) The oldest Jean-like pants made of denim date back to the 16th Century in India; these pants were word by sailors in the city of Dhunga, thereby the reason why these trousers were referred to as Dungarees, back then. 3) The word Denim is a reference to the french town of Nmes, where the textile was developed; this rugged cotton fabric de Nmes was long know for its sturdiness. 4) The reason why this notable studiness is achieved is because weft undergoes double, triple or multiple warp threads, during the weaving

process. 5) It was in the 19th century that Jeans became wildly popular in the USA, thanks to one Mr. Levi Strauss who started selling them as sturdy work clothes for miners. He also held the patent for riveted jeans. 6) Levi Straus received the U.S.Patent No.139, 121 for his improved jeans design on May 20, 1873; for this reason, the 20th of May is regarded to this day as the birthday of the Blue Jeans although it would more accurately be described as the birthday of Levis Jeans. 7) From a single bale of cotton, weighing 500 pounds, over 200 pairs of jean scan be made meaning that it takes over 2 pounds of cotton to make a single pair of Jeans. It was in the middle of the XX century that Jeans (then known as overalls) were popularized and became widespread through Europe, because American Soldiers wore then when off-duty.

9) Jeans became widely popular in the USA at the same time, much thanks to the Hollywood legend Jammed down, who wore Jeans in the movie Rebel without a cause; at this time, and they became a symbol of youth rebellion. 10) Blue Jeans were regarded as a disruptive fashion statement in the 1950s, and people were actually banned from schools, cinemas and restaurants for wearing them. 11) Through the 1960s, Blue Jeans keep growing in popularity, and became even more widespread as a symbol of change. 12) At the dawn of the XXI century, each American is estimated to own 7 pairs of blue jeans. 13) Currently, Jeans are unquestionably the most popular and widespread piece of casual wear, and they are sold by the tens of millions each year. Hows that for a fashionable progression

The 18th century

At first, jean cloth was made from a mixture of things. However, in the eighteenth century as trade, slave labour, and cotton plantations increased, jean cloth was made completely from cotton. Workers wore it because the material was very strong and it did not wear out easily. It was usually dyed with indigo, a dye taken from plants in the Americas and India, which made jean cloth a dark blue colour.

19th Century
1848: gold was found in California and the famous Gold Rush began. The gold miners wanted clothes that were strong and did not tear easily. 1853: a man named Leob Strauss left his home in New York and moved to San Francisco, where he started a wholesale business, supplying clothes. Strauss later changed his name from Leob to Levi. A big problem with the miners' clothes were the pockets, which easily tore away from the jeans. A man called Jacob Davis had the idea of using metal rives to hold the pockets and the jeans together so that they wouldn't tear. Davis wanted to patent his idea, but he didn't have enough money.

1872: Davis wrote to Levi and offered Strauss a deal if he would pay for the patent. Strauss accepted, and he started making copper-riveted "waist overalls" as jeans were called then.

1873: The first riveted clothing was made and sold 1886: Levi sewed a leather label on their jeans. The label showed a picture of a pair of jeans that were being pulled between two horses. This was to advertise how strong Levi jeans were: even two horses could not tear them apart. 1891: Levi Strauss & Co.'s patent for riveted clothing goes public and dozens of companies begin to use the idea

20th Century
How jeans became popular

The 1930's: Westerns

In the 1930's, Hollywood made lots of western movies. Cowboys - who often wore jeans in the movies-became very popular. Many Americans who lived in the eastern states went for vacations on 'dude ranches' and took pairs of denim 'waist overalls' back east with them when they went home.

The 1940's: War

Fewer jeans were made during the time of World War 2, but 'waist overalls' were introduced to the world by American soldiers, who sometimes wore them when they were off duty. After the war, Levi began to sell their clothes outside the American West. Rival companies, like Wrangler and Lee, began to compete with Levi for a share of this new market.

The 1950's: Rebels

In the 1950's, denim became popular with young people. It was

the symbol of the teenage rebel in TV programmes and movies (like James Dean in the 1955 movie Rebel Without a Cause). Some schools in the USA banned students from wearing denim. Teenagers called the waist overalls 'jean pants' - and the name stayed.

The 1960's: Hippies & the Cold War

In the 1960's many, many university and college students wore jeans. Different styles of jeans were made, to match the 60's fashions: embroidered jeans, painted jeans, psychedelic jeans... In many non-western countries, jeans became a symbol of 'Western decadence' and were very hard to get. US companies said that they often received letters from people all around the world asking them to send the writer a pair of jeans

The 1970's: Sweatshops

As regulations on world trade became more relaxed in the late 1970's, jeans started to be made more and more in sweatshops in countries in the South. Because the workers were paid very little, jeans became cheaper. More people in the countries of the South started wearing jeans.

The 1980's: Designer Jeans

In the 1980's jeans finally became high fashion clothing, when famous designers started making their own styles of jeans, with their own labels on them. Sales of jeans went up and up.

The 1990's: Recession

In the world wide recession of the 1990's, the sale of jeans stopped growing. The Youth market wasn't particularly interested in 501s and other traditional jeans styles, mainly because their parents: the generation born in "blue" were still busy squeezing their aging bodies into them. Since no teenager would be caught dead in anything their parents were wearing, the latest generation of rebellions youth turned to other fabrics and styles. They still wore denim, but it had to be in different finishes, new cuts, shapes, styles, or forms. Jeans were named the "single most potent symbol of American style on planet earth". And the 21st century......?
