The Great Jean Debate Of 2021: Skinny or Not?
Today we mark the birthday of the blue jean, a significant moment in history as we cover an important (and at times, hilarious) escalating debate on this central question: What IS the cool jean of 2021? We tackle the history, reveal a personal family story, and get you up to speed on what surely will spark an opportunity to form your own opinion!
Just remember: the whole reason we can have this debate, is because two men, two immigrants, one from Latvia and one from Bavaria (Germany), created the great American blue jean. And no matter who we are, where we are, what we believe, owning a pair of blue jeans might be the one thing that unites us all.
