Jeans where did you come from?

Jeans. We carry them almost everybody. In summer, in winter, at work or school. Have you ever wondered where they came from?

It was German immigrant Levi Strauss who invented the jeans for the world. It was the year 1872 and the golden fever in the West of the United States when he noticed that gold miners and workers needed high-quality work clothes that would endure the most demanding work. In the meantime, he had been involved in the production of cloth to cover tents and wagons, indeed close to the fabrics. From the Italian city Genova and French Nimes they imported a cloth to name the pants.

What was famous among the miners, the farmers or the lumberjacks were copper rivets that ensured that their pockets were not ripped from their pants. It was Latvian tailor Jacob Davis who came up with this idea. On May 20, 1873, a patent came into force, it is forever written into history as “the birthday of jeans.”

 Thanks, gentlemen!

My lecture at the University of Economics

Yesterday I had the eighth lecture at the University of Economics. This time again on Zoom, again with the belief that next time it will be “face-to-face” and again it was great. Until a few years ago, I was wondering why those businessmen and managers had been going there when their time is so precious. But I totally understand that today. The feeling of being able to “give back” is simply priceless!

How I left jeans behind

I’ve felt for a long time that I needed a change. You have probably experienced it too, the motivation is close to zero, you will do only what is really needed, of course with the necessary dose of procrastination and without much added value. I’ve had this for a long time for a number of reasons, but I can blame only myself for it.
