This is a vintage Lee 91-B blue worker denim chore jacket, with triple needle stitching and Talon zip front. Made in the USA.
This is a 'Sanforized' jacket which is a sign of quality. In sanforization, the fabric is stretched, fixed and shrunk in length at the mill in order to reduce the amount of shrinkage that can occur after the first wash.
Used and in very good vintage condition considering the age of the jacket. With general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration. There are some tiny white paint marks to the lower left cuff of the jacket. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
