Lee Japan 131 Cowboy Jeans were originally a budget version of the 101. They featured a more old fashioned dungaree cut and oversized back pockets.
These rare jeans are from the latest Lee "Archive" range, manufactured in Japan, recreating some of the rarest pieces of denim in existence, mostly from the 1930s and 1940s, some of which only exist in ancient photographs and Lee's own historic collections. These stunning recreations are made from the same left hand twill denim, woven on the same looms, made using the same sewing, cutting and manufacturing techniques used "back in the day" Each item is faithfully finished off with the original labelling, rivets, buttons and reinforced stitching.
As each item is a limited edition, it's highly unlikely that this particular model will be available again for several seasons so it's advisable to get a pair while they are still available
