Denim History pt. 3 – Levi Strauss, Jacob Davis, and We Actually Talk About Jeans!

We did it, I swear we actually talk about jeans in this one! It’s only taken about 90 minutes of background history for us to go from fabric to pants made out of that fabric.

In this episode we delve into the rough history of the town that birthed the modern blue jean, San Francisco and the hardscrabble gold rushers that made it boom. Including two local immigrants who made a deal that would change pants forever.
