Levi Strauss & Co. was founded in 1853 by Bavarian immigrant Levi Strauss in San Francisco, initially as a dry goods business. The iconic Levi's blue jeans were born in 1873 when Strauss and tailor Jacob Davis patented the use of copper rivets to strengthen denim work pants. This innovation quickly made Levi's jeans a staple for labourers, particularly during the Gold Rush era.

The company expanded significantly throughout the 20th century, introducing the first women's jeans, Lady Levi's, in 1934 and the distinctive red tab on the back pocket in 1936 to differentiate from competitors. By the 1960s, Levi's jeans had become a global phenomenon, synonymous with American culture and casual style. The brand went public in 1971 and continued to grow, despite financial challenges and shifting manufacturing overseas during the 1980s and 1990s.

Levi's has had a profound impact on fashion, transcending its workwear origins to become a symbol of youth culture and rebellion. The 501 jeans, in particular, have remained a fashion staple for decades, embraced by various subcultures, including rockers, hippies, and punks. Levi's jeans have been immortalized in popular culture, worn by icons such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Steve McQueen, and featured in countless films and music videos.

The brand's influence extends beyond denim. The introduction of Dockers in the 1980s revolutionized business casual attire, making khakis a wardrobe essential for professionals. Levi's has also been a leader in sustainable fashion, pioneering programs like Water<Less® to reduce water usage in denim production and promoting ethical labour practices through its Terms of Engagement code.

Overall, Levi's enduring legacy in fashion is marked by its ability to innovate while staying true to its roots, continually influencing trends and maintaining its status as an iconic American brand.
