Jacob Davis was a tailor that was credited for inventing the modern jean. He originally made tents, horse blankets and wagon covers from denim clothe he bought from Levi Strauss (yes the Levi Strauss) in his shop in Reno. Davis was asked by a customer to make strong work pants and from there he was the one to come up with the copper rivets, now used on all jeans, to reinforce the stitching for a stronger durable pant. He couldn't keep up with demand and then went to his distributor (Levi) to help fiance a patent. Levi got on board and Davis went to work, even sewing in the double threaded stitch design onto the back pockets to distinguish them from other competitors. He is now being credited for his works and is considered "The Unknown American Icon."
