Lee Jeans introduced the Lee Rodeo Clown Pants for rodeos. These were very popular events, and this oversized pair of Lee Riders was made for rodeo clowns who played a critical role in rodeos. They not only entertained the crowds during breaks but also distracted a bull or horse from fallen riders, so that the injured could exit the ring. A true cult item and nowadays very hard to find and a collectors jean. Came across an original vintage one at Ebay today from the ’40’s, the auction starts at $ 975. Unfortunately too much for me to place a bid, but damn cool!
