My latest vintage treasure is this Lee Jeans Rider vest from the sixties. The vest is not washed a lot as the indigo is still pretty dark. It looks like it’s only rinsed once or twice. I had this style already in my private collection, in the winter version and unlined, but this one catch my eyes immediatly because of the red lined corudroy. The combination from the dark blue and red is really amazing! This is something typically from the sixties, begin of the seventies. As corduroy also ages really nice, just like denim, these two fabrics are a perfect match together! Check it yourself below.
