History of Lee 101
Henry David Lee is the name behind this iconic denim brand, but he didn’t start off intending to branch into fashion. Originally making a name for himself as a wholesale grocery distributor, and setting up his own storage company for perishable items, Lee soon became frustrated with the quality and delivery of workwear uniforms for his workers, and decided he’d do the job himself, opening up a new company to create overalls and jackets. Leaping to success with the Union-All work jumpsuit, Lee soon moved onto the more versatile denim jeans. For added convenience, Lee introduced the zipper fly, which revolutionised jean production, and made the brand the top manufacturer of workwear. It wasn’t however until the 1950s the Lee 101 took the leap into commercial wear, and soon gained huge success with their range of styles and quality denim. They now sell worldwide and have a unbeaten range of fits and finishes, ensuring that their high quality clothing suits everyone.
