Hailing from one of the most beloved periods of denim design, Lee Archives’ reproduction of this 1930 model jean is nothing short of brilliant. Cut from a 12.5 ounce fabric, this wide legged, high rise model has been designed for comfort when in the saddle. A set of ‘Lee Unionalls’ donut buttons adorns the waist, to allow suspender to be easily attached, while a custom manufactured cinch back has been added to adjust the shape. For the heritage lovers out there, the brand have treated this design to a brilliantly authentic ‘heavy wash’ ageing treatment, which has added incredible vintage character.
Branded copper rivets can be found throughout, including the ‘cowboy’ crotch rivet, and the back pockets have been bar tacked at the corners for durability. Triple stitch seams at the seat and yoke seams show the Lee company’s attention to detail, while the brand have included the large bell shaped back pockets on this design. A navy and natural selvedge id proudly displays the quality of this denim, and the brand have included a beautifully designed brand patch, made from a fine leather, which will allow it to fade brilliantly over time.
