From Lee Japan a stitch for stitch clone of the famous Hair on Hide Cinch back lot 101 "cowboy pants" from 1937. Lee 101s from the late 30's are probably the most desirable jeans amongst denim collectors.
A deadstock pair would cost about the same as a small family car. But Lee Japan have gone to amazing lengths to produce these remarkable replicas. Made of 11½oz Special Coarse Weave denim, they have wide waistband which is 4-ply double stitched at the top and bottom.
They have wide belt loops that are bar tacked so they will not pull loose. The Buckle straps have V-shaped ends and are both stitched and riveted. The jeans have the famous U shaped crotch which is comfortable and tailored to fit a saddle. The back riser is also made for saddle comfort and is tailored to fit the body giving a flattering look.
They are riveted at points of strain (including the crotch) with the famous non-scratch Lee copper rivets. The pockets are deep and wide. The pockets "bags" are made of Genuine Boatsail Cloth. They have rounded bottoms and are serged and double stitched.
The back pockets are bar-tacked, have the characteristic Lee "shield" shape and "cow-lick" stitching but are wider than the later Lee pockets. The fly is double stitched and is non-gaping. The buttons are rust proofed donut buttons and there is a Lee Cowboy Donut button at the waistband.
To crown it all the cowhide patch has been tanned with the hair on the hide. The patch has been branded with a hot branding iron "just as cattle are branded". We are proud to offer these remarkable jeans to Aero customers.
