Lee Jeans 101 Z 1966 X Worn-Out Projects

Pol Houtkamp from Lee Jeans (NL) is besides a big denim addict a huge fan of the country life of France. Especially the authentic way of making wine is one of his favourite highlights from this beautiful country. That’s how he came up with the super cool idea to give one of these wine growers a dry Lee Jeans 101 Z from 1966, which he could wear during his daily wine job. The wine grower promised to give the jean back after a couple of years. Now after more than 4 years of intensive wear Pol got his jean back and result is one of the best! The wine grower isn’t someone who’s into fashion, so he used the jean like they did in the past. He worn he jean during his job, get dirty, washed it, put it on, do his job, dirty, washed it and so on…No rules that you don’t may wash your jean for at least 6-8 months. The result speaks for it self. As the jean was too long for the wearer he folded it to the inside, instead of turning it up. These different effects of blue color shades are one of my personal highlights of this worn-out Lee denim!

Many thanks Pol for sharing this 4 year long project! Viva la Fance!

25 Years Old Lee Jeans X Worn-Out Projects

Received some nice pics from Arie who repaired his Lee Jeans more than 60 times during the age of 25 years of his denim. The jeans was first owned by a good friend of Arie who asked him if he could do some repairs. In those times Arie did this all by hand because he hadn’t a good sewing machine. After years of repairing he bought a machine to do more repairs, also for other friends, and below you see the result of repairing a denim more than 60 times in 25 years! Last year Arie got the denim as a present after such great work all these years. In his sparetime he is still rockin this good old Lee Jeans. Great story and well done!
