As I am always on a vintage journey for some original denim and army pieces I recently got my hands on this one: An original Lee Jeans ”Boss of the Road” workpant from the 70’s. It’s having a really nice faded blue colour, extremly soft left hand denim fabric and suspender buttons. Besides that the jean has some great aging details, seems like the wearer used the jean very often. There are a lot of stains, spots and a few damages on this pant. Also the original patch is lost during his adventure. The jean is Union Made in the U.S.A. A great piece from Lee Jeans!
