Throughout the 20th century, denim was king of American workwear. Besides the big brand names known worldwide today, numerous smaller companies produced their own versions of the classic jeans, overalls and heavy-duty clothing worn by factory and construction workers, on the ranch or in the fields. The names say it all: Copper King, Black Bear, Anvil Brand, Burlington, Big Smith, Great Western, American Field and more. A catalogued history of this defining, highly functional clothing type is presented here through countless photos of vintage pieces, advertisements, newspaper clippings, posters, stitched labels, buttons, rivets, department store chains and more.
