501 BLUE JEANS - A RIVETING STORY

According to Cotton Incorporated Lifestyle Monitor, the average American woman owns 7.2 pair of jeans, at an average cost of $37.41 each.

Does seven pair seem like enough? I was relieved to find that I own only about twice the average number: 13.75 (one pair is "Capri" length).

Most people think of blue jeans as an American phenomenon, but they were first worn by sixteenth century Genovese sailors as their everyday pants and were made of a coarse cotton/wool blend.
