"Levi Strauss is the creator of jeans"

Only partly is true. Since the original jeans are distinguished by color indigo cotton material, and staples. Trinkets and textiles merchant, Levi Strauss (1829 - 1902), sewed from curtains brown, his first trousers for gold seekers from San Francisco. The idea to strengthen the stitching with staples belongs to the Latvian tailor Jacob Davis (1834-1908). Because he did not have money to patent it, the idea was attributed to Levi Strauss. Around the same time, Davis began to pants made of denim blue. In 1873, blue pants were patented by Strauss and Davis. The name "jeans" is otherwise, folk etymology of the Italian word "genoese", which denoted hardy sailor pants.
