Recently I got my hands on this Lee Jeans ‘Farmers Fair’ Rider jacket. This jacket is a re-production of the original from the fifties. On the farmers fair in the U.S. in 1957 they reached out a denim jacket to the best farmer of that year. The best farmer was M.U. Aggies, his name is embroidered on the front of the jacket. On the back there’s a beautiful horseshoe with the date of the fair. It was the 52nd fair. The jacket is Union Made with a left hand non-selvage fabric. The original jacket, what was the inspiration of this repro, was found in Italy. Can you imagine what a nice story this is how the jacket came in Italy from a farmer from the U.S. Guess we will never know. Anyway, I’m glad with this item in my private collection. Lee on his best!
