Jeans – Then & Now
1873 - Workman Jeans
Workman Jeans, by Levi Strauss, came into vogue. This signature pant is loose through the hip and thigh, ideal for work or play, providing comfort all day long. The metal rivets on the pocket and fly provide functionality, making this a popular pair of jeans among farmers and miners because of its durability.
1930's - Western Jeans
This iconic pair of pants was the first of its kind created solely for women! Pair these jeans with a plaid shirt and boots to really give your look a Western vibe.
1950's - Pop Culture Jeans
This pivotal decade was the beginning of jeans and youth culture. These jeans are cuffed straight cut and have extra large pockets with thick outlined stitching. James Dean often rocked a pair of these pants with his infamous leather jacket.
1960's/70's - Hippie Jeans
These hip hugger bell bottoms were the quintessential '60s and '70s pant. The colorful personalized embroidery and patchwork commonly found on hippie jeans is now making a comeback in todays jean designs.
1980's - Designer Denim
Calvin Klein jeans were becoming more popular with their straight cut and ripped yet sophisticated designs.
1990's - Baggy Jeans
The 90's jeans could go one of two ways: mom jeans or super saggy. Mom jeans are famously known for their super high waist, accentuating your behind. Baggy jeans are mid-rise pants with an extremely loose fit, causing the materials to "sag" or fall to the ground.
2000's - Skinny Jeans
After the baggy jeans era, denim did a three-sixty and became super tight fitted. Super skinny cut jeans are form fitting, accentuate your figure, and are becoming more popular incorporating the distressed jean look of the 80's.
