Denim jeans, perhaps the most ubiquitous article of clothing to be found in the world today, did not always enjoy such widespread appeal. Prior to the 1950's, denim was largely worn by the working classes, be it farmers, construction or factory workers as a durable, utilitarian fabric that held up well to the elements. This book pieces together finds from all eras and brands to stitch together a picture not only of the history of denim, but also often the histories of their wearers.
