    if cultural appropriation is not appropriate then why
    are non-europeans allowed to wear suits, ties, white shirts and dress shoes.

    bit of hypocrisy here i say

    Some things have been re-invented many times. Trousers were worn in Persia 2,000 years ago, for example.

    levis were invented by a men named straus and levi who took sail cloth from the old ships and made pants in the 1870's they put rivets on them to make them stronger.

    so denim and the french ?

    Both the words denim and jeans, and also the fabric itself, are of French origin. Blue jeans weren't invented by Levi and Strauss, they just bought the guy (Davis) who already had, and acquired his patent.

    Cultural appropriation is inevitable.

    Resistance is futile.

    Not talking about who invented "Levis".

    Denim is from France.
    Originally serge de Nîmes.

    The etymology for "jeans" is thought to be from Genoa which
    also produced a similar cloth called bleu de Genes.

    The word "jeans" was in use a hundred years before Levi Strauss.

    I suppose it depends on wether the cultural icon being appropriated is being done so with respect and recognition as well as a timeliness which is in accordance with the owning culture’s sense of national and cultural identity.

    On the other hand good ideas and nifty fashions spread, live with it and don’t be so precious.

    Yes; but so were sarongs. And yet it's evil for me to wear one, but not evil for an Indonesian to wear trowse.
