What we wear tells a story about us.
Whether you choose a hoodie over a button down rather than a t-shirt, that’s your way of telling the world you mean business. For example, when you put on sweatpants instead of khakis, you’re obviously in a leisure state of mind. This is why the choice we have in our closets is huge, so we can put together a narrative every day.
But the clothes we wear also have their own stories. Some of them aren’t just interesting – they’re historic too! And you wouldn’t know just by looking at them.

On all of those pairs of jeans, there are these little buttons on the pockets. Do you know what those are all about?

There’s actually a lot of history in those little buttons.
A certain jeans manufacturer and American icon were built around them starting all the way back in 1872.
