The Collaboration Collection

The Lee Jeans X The Hundreds collaboration collection brings comfortable workwear classics with a twist. Within the collection are Carpenters-inspired pants and worker jackets, both available in funky colors as yellow and light-colored stone-washed denim fabric. The authentic Lee Jeans logo brand sweats are also included, but this time it shows both brand names.

Also, the one-of-a-kind Storm Rider neck label of the lined denim jacket of Lee Jeans is transformed into a collab version. Even the popular Buddy Lee doll is taking its presence on a T-shirt. The design shows Buddy Lee dressed in sweats and hoodies, next to the original Cowboy-styled doll.

A New Market

With the new collaboration, Lee Jeans is taking their heritage to a new level by presenting themselves in a new market, and audience. As they were always rooted in the 1980s and 1990s in streetwear, street culture, and music, this collaboration brings a new consumer, a new awareness, and also a new perspective along with different elements that they haven’t talked about in a long time.
