Levi Strauss was born in Buttenheim (February 26, 1829 – September 26, 1902) , in the Franconian region of Bavaria, Germany, to an Ashkenazi Jewish family. He was the son of Hirsch Strauss and his wife Rebecca (née Haass) Strauss. At the age of 18, Strauss, his mother and two sisters sailed for the United States to join his brothers Jonas and Louis, who had begun a wholesale dry goods business in New York City called J. Strauss Brother & Co.
Strauss opened his dry goods wholesale business as Levi Strauss & Co. and imported fine dry goods—clothing, bedding, combs, purses, handkerchiefs—from his brothers in New York. He peddled canvas for tents to the gold prospectors. Levi lived with Fanny's growing family.
In late 1872 Jacob Davis, a Reno, Nevada tailor, born in Riga, Latvia, started making men's work pants with metal points of strain for greater strength. He wanted to patent the process but needed a business helper, so he turned to Levi Strauss, from whom he purchased some of his fabric.
On May 20, 1873, Strauss and Davis received United States patent for using copper rivets to strengthen the pockets of denim work pants. Levi Strauss & Co. began manufacturing the famous Levi's brand of jeans, using fabric from the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Um 1920 kam der Begriff Blue Jeans (durch die Indigofärbung) auf. In den 1930er Jahren wurde der Hosenträger vom Gürtel abgelöst. In den 1950er Jahren entdeckten Jugendliche die Jeans als Symbol des Protests gegen Tradition und Autorität. Jeans (in Deutschland damals auch Texashose genannt) galten als „Symbole gewalttätiger Unreife und mutwilliger Herausforderung der Konventionen“. Amerikanische Soldaten brachten sie nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg nach Europa. Durch Filmstars wie James Dean und Marlon Brando wurde ihr Bekanntheitsgrad weiter gesteigert. Etablierte Kreise in Deutschland wetterten gegen „Nieten in Nietenhosen“. In der DDR war das Tragen von „Niethosen“ in der Schule oder auf öffentlichen Tanzveranstaltungen unter bestimmten Umständen zeitweise verboten.

After James Dean popularized them in the movie Rebel Without a Cause, wearing jeans became a symbol of youth rebellion during the 1950s. Because of this, they were sometimes banned in theaters, restaurants and schools. During the 1960s the wearing of jeans became more acceptable, and by the 1970s it had become general fashion in the United States for casual wear.

Back in the 1800s, cowboys used to wear their watches on chains and kept them in their waistcoats. To keep them from getting broken, Levi’s introduced this small pocket where they could keep their watch.”
Someone else on the thread pointed out that this watch pocket had been getting smaller with time (as nobody uses pocket watches anymore) but it still remains a part of the original design.
