The first denim trousers were incepted in Italy and by the mid 19th century, was introduced into the United States. Made popular in 1873 by Jacob Davis who manufactured the first pair of “rivet-enforced” denim pants thanks to a customer requesting a pair of durable pants her husband could wear while chopping wood. Later, Davis was mass-producing his denim pants with Levi Strauss & Co.
Now, I truly believe there is nothing more classic than denim. If the American Dream had to be represented in fabric form, what more fitting than the blue jeans, symbolic of an individual’s durability and hard-work. I love how casual and effortless a denim look is and lately I have been feeling so inspired by everything from distressed denim and Canadian tuxedos (see my version here).
I have been on the hunt for a pair of high-waisted, light-wash, mom jean-esque, vintage pants but so far have not succeeded. I recently scoured my favorite thrift store and left empty handed. However, I came home and did some online browsing and compiled some of my favorite denim pieces from around the web. Enjoy!
