American traditions
Clothes Can Be Traditional Too

The tradition to wear certain clothes comes from the time of the 'Wild West'. Then cowboys spent much time outdoors. They usually wore hats. They protected their faces and eyes from the hot sun. They also wore boots. It was dangerous to walk through long grass as there were many snakes.

Cowboys also needed strong and comfortable trousers while riding a horse. So a tailor called Levi Strauss made special clothes. It was in the middle ot the 19th century in the city of San Francisco. Strong trousers made by Levi Strauss were called jeans. Very soon cowboys started to wear them.

Now people wear jeans not only in America but all over the world. Being made of strong cotton cloth they are good for working, hiking and travelling.
