Jeans from gold miners? It seems that one of today’s most popular pants styles actually came out of the California gold rush in the 19th century. Levi Strauss, a shopkeeper in California, started making something called “waist overalls,” his name for these early jeans. Gold miners loved them. Strauss added the familiar brown leather patch to the back pocket in 1886. The label featured two horses pulling a pair of jeans between themselves. Then, with the Hollywood Western craze of the 1930s, the popularity of jeans grew, as everyone wanted to look like a movie star. Since the 1990s, jeans have been worn by nearly everyone, from child to professional.
