are you a blue jean mama like me? if so, you have jacob w. davis in partnership with levi strauss to thank for this invention. the two businessmen came together to patent this revolutionary product way back in 1873. while sales have always been robust for denim since that time it was the 1950’s teenager that gave this humble pant some traction. and blue jeans, nicknamed by the baby boomers in the 1960’s, have been picking up steam ever since. today, there are so many designs to choose from. and the comfort level is incredible due to the addition of spandex. so what’s a girl to do when it comes to buying the ‘perfect’ pair? well, my advice is to take an afternoon and try on a gazillion pairs. when you find the ‘one’ you’ll know it. but i thought i’d share a few of my favorites that i reach for time-and-again. and if you’re like me you’ll want to throw in one or more denim jackets.
