Denim has become such an accepted part of many people’s wardrobes, that to imagine a time without jeans is almost impossible.
To some, it is even more incredulous to imagine that vintage jeans were actually designed in the late nineteenth century.

If this is the case, the jeans were produced before 1976 (roughly). If the back pockets have hidden rivets (replaced by bartack around 1966) and if the back plates of the rivets are silver coloured with lowered letters the jeans are post-1966.
