Blue jeans celebrated a massive milestone this week, turning 150 years old.

While denim’s been around even longer, blue jeans were invented when tailor Jacob Davis in Reno, Nevada decided to add rivets to high tension points on denim pants. Customers kept complaining their pants would rip after a hard day of labor, and Davis discovered the rivets in strategic points would keep the jeans from ripping.

Sometimes innovation just takes one small change.

And if you’re looking for changes, check out this week’s opportunities.
