The term “jean” also refers to a strong cloth manufactured with a cotton warp and wool weft. Jean cloth, like denim, can be made entirely of cotton. Modern jeans were popularised as casual clothing by Marlon Brando and James Dean in their 1950s films, particularly The Wild One and Rebel Without a Cause, which led to the fabric being a symbol of defiance among teens, particularly members of the greaser subculture. Jeans became popular among numerous youth subcultures, and then among young members of the general public, starting in the 1960s.
Jeans are a type of trousers fashioned traditionally of denim (a kind of cotton fabric). The term is most usually used to describe denim blue jeans. Jeans come in a variety of hues, but the most frequent is blue. The fact that most jeans are made of denim or a denim-like fabric is a distinguishing attribute. Rivets—small metal fasteners—are used to reinforce seams and pockets in most jeans.
