Have you ever wondered why many of your jeans are adorned with tiny metal round things?

They seem like little useless bits of metal that should have been removed after the turn of the century, but these button-like objects are still commonly found on many jeans.  

Once you know why jeans have these circular bits, you'll never want to buy a pair that doesn't have them!

Jeans are the go-to wardrobe essential for both men and women. It's nearly impossible to meet someone who doesn't own a pair of blue jeans.

Looking back through history, everyone wore them, from cowboys to celebrities.

Although jeans have changed over time, the basic design still remains the same.
