Fun Fact: A tailor named Jacob Davis from Reno, Nevada, is credited with inventing what is known today as blue jeans. One of Davis’ customers kept ripping the pockets of the pants that Davis made for him. As a way to strengthen the man’s trousers, Davis put metal rivets at the points of strain, such as on the pocket corners. Since Davis regularly purchased bolts of fabric from a dry goods store in San Francisco operated by Levi Strauss, he offered Strauss a half interest in the invention if Strauss would come up with $68 for the patent. Strauss took him up on his offer, and the two men received a patent on May 20, 1873. When the patent expired 20 years later, dozens of garment manufacturers began to imitate the riveted clothing, which has become the most popular clothing product in the world.
