Everyone in this world is familiar and regularly using jeans or denim in their daily life as a casual attire but why do they wear it instead of any other fabric. The most common answer is that people find it comfortable but this is not the correct reason as it is not at all comfortable, it is the toughest and rugged material. The primary reason is that it is very durable and sturdy material and it will last you for a long period of time.
Jeans were actually an accidental discovery in the 18th century, when people in Nimes, France attempted to replicate a sturdy Italian fabric called serge. What they created was "serge de Nimes" or, as it’s been shortened to, "denim."
It's history begun when a Bavarian immigrant named Levi Strauss brought denim to America in 1853. He was based in San Francisco at the time when the Gold Rush was at its peak. Men were going west in search of fortune and would spend months camping out in often inhospitable climates; pants made out of traditional fabric would be destroyed within a matter of weeks.
Jeans, though, were perfect for cowboys and miners. Interestingly, blue jeans also became popular with polo players. Their pants could easily be ruined if they rode through brambles on a horse.
Even today, polo players typically wear regular blue jeans to practice and white jeans for matches.




James Dean popularized blue jeans in the movie Rebel Without a Cause in 1955. He wore a T-shirt, a leather jacket, and jeans, uniform men began copying immediately.
Now, jeans are seen everywhere irrespective of gender, class, and creed.
Some fashion trends are meant to be neverending and so is the case with jeans.
