The Lee Brand was founded in 1889 in Kansas but didn't start manufacturing denim in the early 20th century. They are known for producing overall and coveralls, tough pieces of work wear. They continued to evolve and grow as a company, with the Depression-era Buddy Lee doll and their Lee Riders, originally introduced in 1956. Lee still produces denim to this day, albeit out of North Carolina now, but their classic Riders denim is always a favorite. This original Lee Riders denim jacket, lightly faded in great condition, looks just like the one Bruce Springsteen wore on the cover of Rolling Stone. Fits between a medium and a large but please refer to our measurements for exact sizing.
