A stunning and painstaking reproduction by J.D. Lee of a rare archival Stormrider from the early 1950s with a unique styling detail on the inside; The signature French blanket lining (Pre Troy Mills) is left loose at the hem in a rare detail believed to be a throwback to early production when the shrinkage of the inner blanket wasn't consistent and so the solution was to not attach it.
Cut for in a relaxed fit - it's perfect for layering - with a handwoven (in the Alps) blanket-lining to the body and sleeves. The soft taupe cord collar marks it out as a true Lee® icon. Cut from Lee®'s 49 selvedge denim: a Japanese artisan-made left-hand denim dyed with 13 dips of indigo and features a single line blue selvedge. 100% premium cotton.
The cotton is imported mainly from the USA and the yarns are specially ring-spun for a higher quality finish. The shuttle looms used to craft this fabric only produce around 100 meters per 24h. A slow process, but definitely worth the wait. Brass Lee® 101 buttons and pale gold threads.
