Jeans are great for work, play and everywhere. I should've worn them in HS, all boys Catholic school. That would've went over like a fart in church. Truthfully, I did it once, and THEY told me to go home and change. I went home, changed and went fishing on the river in God's Country. My father laughed. All he said was smarten up, it's almost over. I miss those jeans...

And one thing I forgot, We never let them be washed. We wore them until they were stiff enough to stand up by themselves.

I have to disagree with item #8. I am a product of the 50's and Levis were the fad and just about every guy around wore Levis to school and everywhere else. There were different styles of wearing them, especially the way the bottom of the legs were worn, rolled, tucked under, tucked under and rolled or straight. Me, I preferred tucked under with one roll.

IN RURAL WORK, AFTER THE ADVENT OF WRIST WATCHES, THE "WATCH POCKET" WAS USED TO KEEP THE CATTLE-COUNTER, A GIZMO THAT INCREASES ONE NUMBER EVERY TIME YOU PUSH A BUTTON. IT'S VERY GOOD FOR COUNTING YOUR SHEEP OR CATTLE AS THEY PASS THE GATES OF THE FARM.

They were made for miners hence the name for this type of canvas was called denim which is mined spelled backwards

Growing up in Utah, all jeans ( no matter the brand were referred to as Levi's. It took me a long time once I got married and moved to Washington state to figure out that Levi's meant a certain brand. I finally got it.

I went to high school in the 60s and we were not allowed to wear jeans. Girls were not allowed to wear pants!
