10E2500: Henry David Lee (of Lee jeans) was born in Vermont

via - Kansas City Historical Association and a contact in Randolph, VT

Lee (or HD Lee Mercantile as they were originally known) have a scattered history of manufacture, in Scotland, Ireland, India and US. Their Lee 101 line (only available in Europe pretty much) is boss. Love how they put the prices right on there. Transparency.

A old Lee Stormrider or 101 denim jacket still a stone cold classic. Look for woven labels on the 'bay. Can't mention Lee w/o also referencing a great older post by TSY on The Misfits. Burn 10 minutes...
