The Levi Strauss History The making of the 501® Levi jeans–
A Long Story in History To Remember for Johnny!

I was sitting on the sofa next to my grandson, who asked me if he would be able to wear the 501® Levi jeans.

He wanted to know if he were tall, would he be able to wear the tall and big jeans?    

Johnnie’s dad was tall and had to have big jeans to fit his big frame.

 I told him I could tell he was going to be big and tall, but he would have to decide he if he wanted 501® Levi jeans.

He pointed it out to me how much his dad loved his 501® jeans so much that he kept them in the freezer sometimes.  

Now, my grandson, age 10, did not know that some men did not clean their 501 Levi jeans.

“I will tell you the drama about how once the Levi 501® jeans were made by a man by the name

of Jacob Davis as well as Levi Strauss.”

     Johnny:  “Not just by Levi alone grandma?”

Now Johnnie was a precocious child and was always interested in my stories.

He liked stories about real people.  And he loved talking about the 501® Levi jeans his dad wore.

I have a book here on maps.   So, you are right.   The other person, Jacob Youphes, was born in 1831 of a Jewish family”

Riga in 1830's

 

The name of the town was named Riga which was a part of the Russian Empire.   This map shows Riga is now in Latina.

During the time in Riga, he trained and worked as a taler.   

In 1854, when Jacob Youphes, was 23  he immigrated to America and settled in New York City.  

There he changed his name from Youphes to Davis.  

He was a tailor by trade and so he operated his tailor shop for a while before he left for Maine.  

Later, in 1856, he left Maine and traveled to San Francisco.  

However, he did not stay long, so in 1858, he once again moved to Weatherville.

Yes and it was at this time, it was believed,  he worked as a journeyman tailor.”

        Johnny: What is a journeyman?

He is a person who has served as an apprenticeship at a trade and is certified to work at it assisting another person.  Now the show must go on.

In 1858, he was on the move again.  But this time he moved to Western Canada.  While there he met and married a German immigrant named Annie Parksher and had 6 children by her.
