Denim was birthed in the workplace. The indigo-dyed jeans were first worn as sturdy workwear by industrial America some one hundred years ago.
Nowadays, with ‘casual Fridays’ in the corporate world, as well as the new business casual mirroring a modernisation in the workplace, it’s never been so appropriate to invest in a pair of jeans for the office. With some office dress code rules to follow, of course.
