THE DISPLAY AT THE LEVI STRAUSS MUSEUM SHOWED THE DUNGAREES’ – – –
GLEAEOYJAN = “JEAN-EALOGY”
Happy Thursday, everyone! All of today’s anagrams were new while the clue words they produce were recycled favorites. They were all instantly visible to me except for a tiny hesitation on AGENT. I’ll go ahead and choose it as the most difficult anagram of the day and include a poll down below where you can pick your own. The daily poll has become rather popular so I’ll continue to post one so you can see how your choice compares to the rest of the Jumble geniuses out there.
After zipping through all of the words, we find ourselves transported to a museum where we see a couple of Jumble characters looking at vintage jeans. The characters appear to be in their late 20’s or early 30’s and they’re marveling at some of the stylistic changes the iconic brand has undergone since its founder introduced his first pair in 1873. Exactly one month ago Jeff gave us a cartoon featuring a reading of Mr. Strauss’s will to his heirs. In that analysis, I went into detail about the brand and its founder. Have a look here if you’d like a little more information into the beginnings of the Levi’s brand.
Since today’s panel focused on Levi’s jeans, Jeff went to great lengths to differentiate the pairs by adding subtle details to make each one unique. The far left pair has rolled up bottoms and a slim fit. The next two pairs appear to be boot cuts and are very similar except for slight variations in their color. The final pair features bell bottoms which came to the market in 1966. My favorite detail of today’s cartoon were the brand labels on the belt line of the jeans. Each one is slightly different and shows a progression of the brand through the decades!
The anagram for the final solution consisted of 10-letters. JEAN jumped out at me straight away with the remaining letters leaving a bit of a jumbled mess. Reading the cartoon sentence a few more times brought genealogy to mind and I had to Google the word for the correct spelling. The final solution wasn’t a snap, but I was able to button it down after a couple of minutes. Have a terrific Thursday, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 👖
