 Lee® Storm Rider Jackets

The first products to launch in the Lee Archives are the Lee® Storm Rider Jackets ($225) likely produced in the 60’s and 70’s. Defined by its signature details including a corduroy collar, blanket lining, and quintessential Lee zig-zag stitching, many will recognize this jacket as one worn by Marilyn Monroe in one of her most famous photos (taken while filming The Misfits in 1961). The Rider Jacket dates back to 1948 when it was originally designed and advertised to cowboys, while the Storm Rider (a lined version) was introduced in 1953.
