I Love My Levi's Jeans

Updated on October 14, 2015

Among the very few popular brand names of jeans for many decades is the Levis. Most people love Levis and choose Levis only if they can, because it comfortably fits.The popularity of Levis has never waned out ever since. Levis jeans are what every man dreams to have, even those who can't afford to have one.

I remember in my teenage years wherein I was proud to wear my Levis jeans. Friends and cousins would look at me and asked for its price. For them it seemed that one is privileged if you wear one, and I was proud when everybody noticed that I wore Levis. I had 3 pairs of Levis jeans back then-- 501, 505, and 509. The 501 is the most expensive, even until now.

Why Levis is the most sought after when it comes to jeans?

Because the material is high quality and the workmanship is excellent; it's durable that could last for many years, even those who are into an active lifestyle. Levis jeans are even cool and hip even though they become torn out from many years of use. Well, who cares, old and tattered jeans (exclusively Levis... for me and most people) are stylishly fashionable; it even is a trend of all time.

The origin of Levis jeans

In 1853, California gold rush was in full swing. Levi Strauss, a 24 year-old German enterprising immigrant left New York for San Francisco to open a branch of his brother's dry goods business. He carried with him rough canvas to use for tents and wagon covers. Seeing the mining communities in California, he then recognized the need for strong, durable pants for miners. The canvas was made into waist overalls and miners liked the pants. The fabric later became known as denim and next became known as blue jeans. The name for blue jeans was derived from the color of the fabric used to make them.

Originally, Levi's did not have rivets. David Jacobs, a Nevada tailor, invented riveted pants for strength because the miners had complained that regular pants were not strong enough to hold their mining tools. David Jacobs co-patented the rivet idea on May 20, 1873.

In 1920, zippers replaced button flies, although later button flies had a resurgence of popularity.

The red tab attached to the left rear pocket of the Levi's jeans was created in 1936 as its unique identity.

Levi's Men's 511 jeans are available in a wide array of colors-- from dark sequioa to clean dark, bell grass to bull denim black, rowdy creek to whiteout, and many more. If you like the wear and tear color, there's a lot of them you can choose.

It fits as expected, which earned 73% rating from 733 customer reviews.

Levi's Men's Faux-Leather Trucker Jacket

Levis use of material for their apparels does not only concentrate on cotton and spandex; it also has faux-leather material.

Pockets: side entry pockets and snap-flap pockets on chest and standing collar

Material: 100% polyurethane with Sherpa lining

In the 60s and 70s, there were not a lot of Levis jeans to choose from. Nowadays, I'm amazed that Levis has expanded their jeans versions and so do with other apparels that you will be confused on which to buy.

Levis is more than 140 years after inventing blue jeans. Blue jeans became popular-- from celebrities to farmers, businessmen to everyman, presidents to rockers, in the 1950s. Its sales then had surged and in 1957, 150 million pairs were sold worldwide. And this growing trend continued with the introduction of designer jeans to the market in the 1980s.

    How well I know Levi Jeans. You know back in my day - they were called 'dungarees' - hardly fashionable but we loved them.

    It's time for me to get another pair. Thanks for all the information! I'll start shopping!
