Lee Archives 1952 'Riders' 101Z Regular Straight Jean - Raw


The first jean to boast a zip fly in the 101 collection, this jean made history, and for many, marked a way towards a more convenient way of wearing denim. Cut in a classic straight leg, from a 100% cotton, 13.75 ounce denim, this model was favoured by Hollywood’s golden boy, James Dean. The pockets have been made smaller on this design, and moved slightly further apart, but still boast the iconic crossed bar tack stitch, the sewn in wave, and the rayon brand tab which has become so iconic in denim culture.

Branded copper rivets can be found throughout the jean, while a steel tuck button on the waistband displays the ‘Lee Riders’ moniker. Boasting a fabric shrinkage of less than 1%, our customers are encouraged to buy their exact size, for the perfect comfort fit.
