This Is Why Our Jeans Pockets Have Little Buttons On Them
Jeans are very important. Obviously. We all wear them and there's even an old Friends promo picture of them all with denim-clad legs, showing the true importance of the jean.
However, have you ever wondered why there's a little metal button on the side of jeans pockets?
You know, this thing:
Never thought to wonder, eh? Well, tbh, us neither, but now we've found out some VERY IMPORTANT information regarding this.
These little buttons are actually known as rivets and prevent jeans from wearing out and ripping at the seams.
They were patented by the godfather of the jean: Levi Strauss, back in the day when jeans were mainly worn by hard manual labour workers, instead of people just sat at their desk while eating Pret A Manger.
When miners complained about how quickly their trousers fell apart at the pockets, Strauss decided to create metal rivets and they worked like a bloody charm.
So wonder no more!
