We all love the way Levi’s look and feel, but what if there was a little more to them than that? Well, the good news for all you Levi’s lovers is that there’s plenty you can still learn and discover about them, starting with these 15 interesting facts about Levi’s Jeans:
Levis Strauss was born in Germany in 1829 and immigrated to the USA in 1847 once he’d turned 18.
Levi’s began life as a dry goods store, not a clothing brand, in 1853 once he arrived in San Francisco.
His first trousers weren’t made from denim, they were made from duck canvas.
‘Waist overalls’ is the name that preceded jeans, and it’s not hard to see why that never caught on.
