The ever-popular blue jean originated in the Old West frontier of San Francisco in the late 1800s, and here is an extensive look at the entire era of Old West denim. Gathered from collections around the world, it presents never-before-seen pictures of antique miners denim worn in the frontier communities of Nevada and California, including Levi denim that is over 120 years old. Over a dozen other brands that helped make blue jeans what they are today include Greenbaum Brothers, Neustadter Brothers, S R Krouse, A B Elfelt & Co, Heynemann & Co, Harman Adams, W & I Steinhart & Co, Toklas, Brown, and others. Many of these innovative blue-jean designs have been lost in the dust of history and were inaccessible to the public until now. Over 300 colour photos and illustrations chronicle examples, patent drawings, and the histories of the manufacturers. This is invaluable information for fashion historians and collectors alike.
