The book, True Fit – A Collected History of Denim, is the story of jeans’ genesis and evolution. We are present at the birth of the garment in the mid-1870s and follow its evolution a hundred years forward in time. The account of the history of jeans also reveals that the garment makes up an integral part of American heritage.
