"The Original" S409XXX

M-46

The end of the war also brought a swift end to US production restrictions. The suppressed passion of jeans-makers, newly freed, inspired expressive details and would help shape a new era. The pieces of this time are often called the “transition model,” and the year 1946 as a whole was also one of transition. Alongside the country’s rapid growth and the optimism of victory, denim pants also continued to reshape the history of American workwear. Conners Sewing Factory enabled us to revive this pivotal moment that inspired generations of creativity.
