Lee Jeans has stood the test of time as one of America’s legendary denim and workwear producers. Now, the 130-year old company is collaborating with iconic streetwear brand The Hundreds on a limited-edition lineup of apparel and accessories. The collection reinvigorates the silhouettes and styles Lee has become known for with modern graphics, colors, and fits.
“This collection celebrates the shared history of workwear and culture between Lee and The Hundreds,” said Betty Madden, vice-president of Global Design, Lee in a press release. “Denim and culture go hand in hand, and Lee has played an integral role for more than a century. The Hundreds’ streetwear sensibility paired with our rich heritage has resulted in a collection of fresh, modernized styles that will excite fans of both brands.”
The Hundreds has made a name for itself collaborating with legacy partners like Adidas, Disney, and more. So, this latest link-up has The Hundreds working with another established, quality brand. Lee has helped define denim in America and this collection highlights that history while connecting with the streetwear subculture.
“In aligning with collaborative partners, The Hundreds seeks a story first,” Bobby Kim, Co-Founder of The Hundreds, shared in the press release. “That’s why we’re drawn to American heritage brands like Lee, which carry a rich history and have touched so many lives.”
The collaborative collection includes graphic tees, crewnecks, a denim tote, and more. But, the highlight of the collection has to be the workwear pant and chore jacket combo available in stone wash or Bottle Rocket yellow.
