Today's morning menswear trivia is about these things I'm wearing on my legs. They are called "jeans." Crazy right? Jeans are pants made from denim or dungaree cloth. They were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873 and are still worn today! Jeans are named after the city of Genoa in Italy, a place where cotton corduroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured. Bet you didn't know that! Levi Strauss came from Germany to New York in 1851 to join his older brother who had a dry goods store.
In 1853 he heard about Gold Rush in the West so moved to San Fran to establish Western Branch of the business. There he sold, among other things, cotton cloth. One of his customers was Jacob W. Davis, a tailor from Reno, Nevada. Davis made functional items such as tents, horse blankets, and wagon covers.
One day, his customer ordered a pair of sturdy pants that could withstand hard work. He made them from denim that he bought from Levi Strauss & Co and made them stronger by placing copper rivets at the places pants rip the most: pockets and flies. When he wanted to patent them, he wrote to Levi Strauss, and they became partners. They opened a bigger factory, and that is how jeans were born! Damn. —

"Dress/ed to kill" is an English idiom describing someone who wants to put on attire so attractive that it impresses everyone who sees this person. The literal meaning of the phrase, that people could dress so well that it would kill anyone who sees them, gives the idiom its power. In actuality, the idiom actually builds off the English slang meaning for "to kill," which informally means "to impress." If someone were to "dress to kill," he or she would be so stylish that everyone who sees the clothing would be overwhelmed by it and how well it is worn by the person in question.
When someone uses this particular phrase, it means that he or she is describing a person who is almost outlandishly stylish. Often, the phrase "to kill" is an exaggerated way of saying that a person's dress or appearance will have an exaggerated effect on observers. In that case, people who know how to "dress to kill" have the ability to wear clothes that leave everyone in their presence in awe. It requires that the clothes be stylish and not so garish that they're tasteless.
If you want to "dress to kill," you'll have to know exactly what looks good on you and how to project confidence when you wear it. Practically everyone finds confidence attractive. *The key is to add your own style and make it yours. *Details are very important when you are dressed to kill, literally.
There is one rule you should always follow. Make sure it’s tailored fit.Take your suit to your local tailor and make sure your suit fits to you. An assassin doesn’t need extra fabric flying around lol.
