Ben Davis may not have risen to the heights of Carhartt and Dickies during the workwear resurgence of the last 10 years, but it has certainly kept it real through and through. Still offering some of their original styles after over 85 years, Ben Davis is a true American workwear classic with some of the toughest and most OG silhouettes in the game.
Founded in 1935 by the Davis family. The Davis Family has been involved in the US garment industry since the mid-1800s. The Company Founder, Ben Davis’s, grandfather Jacob Davis was instrumental in the creation of the original Levi’s Jeans.
As the story goes, Jacob Davis wrote to his fabric supplier, Levi Strauss, asking him to help him apply for a patent for his riveted work pants which was subsequently approved in 1873. Davis proposed that he would share the rights with Strauss to produce riveted pants.
