May 20 Levi Strauss Jacob Davis Patent Blue Jeans Levis

What happened on May 20?

Bzzbzzbz, it’s World Bee Day dear friends!

Today also marks the introduction of the famous blue “Levi’s” jeans in 1873, patented by Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis.

Jeans are a classic item in anyone’s wardrobe. Old-school rocker Joe Cocker (*1944) certainly has many great memories of concerts performed in them.
Cher (*1946) is more of a dress-lady, but who knows… maybe she wears jeans, too?

One thing is certain, you won’t catch Petr Čech (*1982) nor Chris Froome (*1985) wearing them whilst goaltending or cycling. But who knows how these guys dress up on their evening off in the cinema. The Kinetoscope, Thomas Edison’s predecessor of today’s modern cinema, had its first public display in 1891.

What did the wardrobes of novelist Honoré de Balzac (*1799) and Shakespeare look like?
Shakespeare’s sonnets were first published today in 1609, by the way.

Were they fitted in the same style Louis Theroux (*1970) and Timothy Olyphant (*1968)?
Or more in line with John Stuart Mill’s (*1806) philosophic line of fashion?
