At one time being a miner was the one thing that people aspired to be. The job was dangerous but the rewards were huge. By the 1960’s and 70’s safety was paramount. Its just a shame that this was when the coal mines were slowly being phased out to quell the consolidated workforce and unionism (at least in the UK). What types of mining are there today? It is tough and dirty work and you can be sure that mens Levi jeans would have been worn by miners past and present. You can get some today at EJ Menswear.
