Today, jeans – also called dungarees, Levi’s, Denims, or trousers – are often a fashion statement. But they didn’t start out that way.

Blue jeans were invented in the United States in the 1800s by a man named Levi Strauss – you guessed it, the same Levi Strauss who loans his name to the clothing brand today.

The jeans were invented as durable work clothes, made of thick material with double seams reinforced by copper rivets.

Though originally designed for American workers such as cowboys and miners, jeans quickly became a cultural staple all over the world.

During the 1950s, actors such as James Dean popularized the look. In the decades since, jeans have been adopted by hippies, music artists, skaters, hipsters, models, and the average Joe.

Did you know? During the dyeing process, your jeans are initially yellow in color. The natural or synthetic indigo dye then reacts with oxygen in the air, turning that classic blue shade.

In the late 1800s, the synthetic color was invented because demand for blue dye rose – 90 percent was used in the making of jeans.

​Step by Step Instructions for Drawing​ Jeans

How to Draw Jeans: Step 1

1. Begin by using curved, wavy lines to enclose a narrow horizontal rectangle. This will form the belt that is holding up the jeans.

2. Next, draw the belt loops and buckle. To form the first belt loops, enclose a curved shape at each end of the belt. Then, draw a small circle in the middle of the belt, and a short line beside it. On each side of this belt buckle, enclose a curved shape. Draw a short curved line crossing the belt, double it back upon itself, and connect it to the starting point to enclose the shape. Erase guide lines as necessary.

3. Extend two curved lines downward from the belt buckle to form the fly. Connect these lines using a “U” shaped line. Draw curved lines on each side of the “U” to indicate creases in the fabric.

4. Draw long lines descending from one end of the belt and from the fly. This outlines one leg of the jeans.

9. Detail your jeans. Enclose coin pockets above the front pockets using curved lines. Draw a circle beneath each pocket to indicate the rivets, metal fasteners that lend strength to the garment. Draw long curved lines down the outer side of each leg, and shorter horizontal curved lines across the legs in numerous places to indicate creases in the fabric.

Color your jeans. Classically, denim pants are referred to as “blue jeans,” but they also come in black, brown, and a whole rainbow of colors.
