Historical note:

From the Levi Strauss website: On May 20, 1873, the two men received patent #139,121 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We consider that day to be the official birthday of blue jeans. For more information on the history of the Strauss company, go to For Jacob Davis' legacy go to
The letter written by Davis to Strauss, suggesting partnership, is available on the Ben Davis web site.


Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis secured the patent for riveted pants. Louis Stern also existed. All dialogue, other characters, and situations are products of the authors imaginations and any resemblance to actual persons living or dead or events is coincidental.
