Last night, Lynn Downey, Levi'sHistorian and Archivist, held a short seminar in Macy's Herald Square to talk about the evolution of the blue jean. Initially, I was just excited to see the world's oldest pair of jeans with my own eyes as I knew they'd be part of the seminar. I'd seen photos of it before, but being able to look up close at a pair of jeans that would fit perfectly in any of the exhibits in the Smithsonian was a treat I couldn't pass up. However, as Lynn began to speak, I found myself taking notes as if I was back in college as her knowledge of denim is extensive. It's a rare day that I get to speak to someone who knows denim better than me. Just being honest. And in this case, Lynn was practically professorial when speaking about the history of denim and I was riveted, no pun intended.
