Product Description: 

Inscribed on every pair of jeans is the story of how a workmen's garment became one of the most universal fashions of the world. This program speaks about the interaction of culture and clothing and offers clues to who we are today because of it. Who invented jeans, and why blue? How did jeans help invent teenagers? What did people wear before jeans were around? This biography of the blue jean is the story of changing attitudes toward work, fashion, leisure and gender.
