Lee 101 Rider Jacket 1948 Model

Lee 101 Rider Jacket 1948 Model

The iconic Lee® 101 Rider Jacket is a slim fit with twin chest pockets, authentic zig zag stitched placket, pale brass Lee® 101 buttons, faded tobacco stitching, and cats eye adjustors. Cut from Lee® Left Hand Twil Japanese 14oz denim.

  • The original denim cowboy jacket, invented by Lee.
    Front pleats are meant to give more volume.
    V-shaped back: this makes the shoulders look bigger and the waist smaller.
    Slanted overall shape: the jacket is longer in the front than in the back.

 

Tough and rigid, Lot #49 is one of Lee's best-loved fabrics: created at the Kaihara mill in Fukuyama City, Japan. Lot #49 is Kaihara's 14oz fabric, a naturally softer lefthand weave twill - specific to Lee. Dipped 13 times in natural indigo for a rich, upbeat tone. Using cotton mainly imported from the USA and ring-spun for a higher quality finish. Lee's lefthand twill always has a slightly tighter, more refined construction, and Lot #49 has a softer, smoother feel. Kaihara's vintage looms can only produce around 100 meters of fabric per 24 hours: a slow process, but definitely worth the wait. With a single blue selvage line.
