Forever in Blue Jeans
Blue jeans have a long history in this country. America introduced jeans to the world during World War II, and now people almost everywhere wear jeans. Today, one of the first truly American garments remains a booming business — the average American owns not one, but seven pairs of blue jeans, and approximately 450 million pairs of jeans are sold in the United States per year. While jeans are worn for leisure, date nights, and sometimes to the office, that wasn't always the case. When jeans first came about they were designed as a working man's pant because they were durable. Let's take a look at how jeans progressed through the years to what they are today.
