Worn-Out Lee Jeans Stormrider Jacket

It was the year 1933 that Lee Jeans introduced their iconic Stormrider jacket. The Lee Jeans Stormrider jacket was the follow-up of their Rider jacket which was introduced in 1931. The Stormrider jacket is the Winter version of the Rider jacket, the slim denim jacket. The Lee Jeans Stormrider jacket features a blanket lining and corduroy collar.

This particular Stormrider jacket is from my archive and dates back to the ’70’s. Its made of a left hand fabric which has a very soft feeling. The fabric has an amazing worn-out look with different shades of blue. The sleeves shows beautiful honeycombs and both shoulders has some blowouts. The necklabel is woven, new verions have printed labels, with Lot #101-LJ – Union made in U.S.A. The pocket label shows the R and MR which refers to the ’70’s. This Lee Jeans Stormrider jacket is a perfect example of the beauty of aged denim.
