Commodity restrictions also made it produced significantly fewer pairs of jeans, and that they became a sought-be. This meant in turn that the American soldiers brought their jeans out into the world that they would not be stolen while they were away.
When the soldiers were on leave had his jeans on, and now they were seen for the first time outside the United States. Many were interested in the new kind of pants and Levi’s got a lot of letters asking how they could get hold of a friendly couple. Other switched to the American soldiers of jeans to leather jackets, and more. The first step towards an international market was taken.
