Lee "Stormrider" Jacket


In 1933, Lee launched what was to become one of its most famous designs, the Storm Rider Jacket. It was a winter version of the “Slim” jacket Lee 101J which was launched in 1931 and it featured a blanket lining and corduroy collar.

Early versions of the Storm Rider had embroidered labels but later became printed labels instead. These jackets had labels denoted as Lee 101LJ (Lined and Jelt) and Lee 101J (Jelt). Those manufactured since the 1970’s had the ® MR next to the name.
