Yesterday I posted the docu ‘In search of blue gold’ with David White from Ragtop Clothing – London. Today I show you a vintage child’s Lee cowboy jeans,ย circa 1945, from his archive. The jean is in perfect state and has a beautiful blue colour. The back is teared and patched. It’s an Union Made pant with one side selvage only. The backpockets are fastened with the famous X stitching.
