How jeans are made?

3 Nov

Jeans are trousers  made from  denim  or dungaree  cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants called “blue jeans” and invented by Jacob Davis and  Levis Strauss  in 1873. Starting in the 1950s, jeans, originally designed for cowboys, became popular among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture. Historic brands include Levi’s , Lee, and Wrangler. Jeans come in various fits, including skinny, tapered, straight, boot cut and flare.

In 1885, jeans could be bought in the US for $1.50 (approximately $36 in 2010). Today, a pair of durable jeans can be purchased in the United States for about $40, less for those willing to wait for a good sale. Designer jeans can be priced at several hundreds of dollars, with some even approaching $800. There is a robust market for used jeans, and the prices obtained for these pre-owned jeans vary tremendously. Americans spent more than $14 billion USD on jeans in 2004 and $15 billion in 2005. Americans bought $13.8 billion USD of men’s and women’s jeans in the year ended April 30, 2011, according to market-research firm NPD Group
