The victory of men’s jeans started in the 1870s in the USA. A German expatriate invented extremely robust working trousers for gold digger and Jacob Davis, the tailor, had the idea to reinforce the pockets with studs to make them even more stable. The two men formed a team and received a patent for the first pair of jeans. Eventually fashionable and practical details were added: Belt loops, back pockets, and later the zipper. The clientele grew – not only gold diggers bought jeans - cowboys, woodcutters, and railroad workers quickly realized the advantages of these practical men’s jeans. Also, there was a smooth transition from the trousers for workers to the leisure time trousers and finally to become a cult status symbol.
The first model had a very straight shape, men’s jeans were rather loose. Bootcuts came up for men’s jeans after World War II, the reason was to be able to pull the jeans over the boots. In the 1950s tight jeans became very popular. Washing the early jeans models they shrunk by about 10%. In order to make the jeans wrap tightly around the body contours, women and men sat fully dressed in the bath full of water, in order to perfect the shrinking effect. The modern men’s and women’s jeans do not shrink any more – as long as they are washed the right way: Most jeans can be washed up to 40° C but never use a dryer. It is best to turn them inside out and to close buttons and the zip. Like this they stay as good as new for a long time. Depending on the desired fit you can choose between many different washings. From the traditional dark blue to trendy models with bleaching and destroys.
