Levi’s起源

若要追溯牛仔褲的根源和歷史A一位代表性人物不能不堤,

他就是美國牛仔褲之父-LEVI STRAUSS:美國 LEVI'S STRAUSS AND CO. 的創辦人,美國牛仔文化歷史的先驅。

  

LEVI STRAUSS 原籍為德國,1847年發跡於美國三藩市,當時已受賣帆布維生。

後來發覺當地礦工十分需要一種質地堅韌的褲子,於是他把原來造帳幕的啡色帆布造了一批褲子,賣給了當地礦工。

LEVI'S 王國的成功,要算是由 LEVI'S 501 開始,501的誕生是當LEVI STRAUSS 在1873年與另一夥人 JACOB DAVIS,

他們把生產的扣鈕牛仔褲上所用的「撞釘」註冊專利。

當時的 501 是一種縮水後十分合身的的效果,極受當時工人們的歡迎。

在七、八十年代可說是各走極端。LEVI'S 這段期間,在款式演變上一直有

跟進潮流。

LEVI'S 的現代系列中也有三大分支,分別以不同顏色商標小旗做區分。

「紅旗」為反對過分貼身的「追尋原本」的時尚而設(501 也算在內);

「銀旗」推銷「現代基本」的款式:特別講究高品質和洗水過程及製作效果;

「橙旗」除基本款式外,還發展其他時髦款式,是一系列質料上呈緊貼潮流的產品。

EDWIN起源

牛仔褲誕生的確切日期是1873年5月20日。這一天,專利商標局向兩位移民李維‧斯特勞斯和雅各‧戴維斯頒發了他們申請的工裝褲的專利。

 

這種勞動褲是用一種名叫“粗斜紋布”製作的,縫製時經過了加固處理,而且在褲兜和褲門處都使用了嶄新的銅紐扣。這個主意是內華達裁縫戴維斯提出的。而戴維斯是斯特勞斯的顧客。斯特勞斯當時是一家小百貨商店的頭家。斯特勞斯希望用這種新的褲子款式滿足淘金礦工的要求,因為淘金礦工們經常抱怨說褲兜兜不住他們裝在裡面的黃金顆粒。

由於這種“能放東西”的褲子受到極大的歡迎,因此很快就不得不為它申請專利,但是要實現這一夢想,戴維斯還缺62美元。戴維斯遇到困難后就來到斯特勞斯家求助,精明的生意人李維‧斯特勞斯二話沒說就把錢給了他。因為他心裡清楚,正像戴維斯向他保證的那樣,由於這種新工裝褲有著巨大的經濟潛力,他們二人肯定能夠掙到大筆的錢。

 

而這兩位商人再精明,也萬萬沒有想到他們未來的收入會有那么多。不僅如此,隨著時間的推移,他們設計的這種服裝不再是專做粗活的人穿著的衣服,它開始向其他地方傳播,最後全世界的人都穿這種服裝。從牧人、工人、學生,到富有的企業家、運動員、藝術家和王室成員都穿這種服裝。可以說,它現下已經變成20世紀的一種象徵。又有誰能想到,62美元的專利費,竟然會換來如此高的回報。

牛仔褲的代表性款式大致可分以下幾種︰

直筒型︰牛仔褲最基本的款式,諸如Levi's501、EDWIN505、Lee101等牌號。

瘦窄型︰強調體姿美的款式,諸如Levi's606、EDWIN506、Lee301等牌號。

小喇叭褲管型︰考慮到穿高幫鞋時的方便,褲管稍大,諸如Levi's517、EDWIN101F、Lee102等牌號。

大喇叭褲管型︰七十年代風行一時的款式,膝蓋以下的褲管極大,諸如Levi's646等牌號。
