1950's Lee Westerner jacket in a beautiful stone color.

Made in USA, c. 1950’s-60’s.


By the end of the late 1950s Lee introduced their Lee Westerner 100-J jacket. This jacket was a version of their popular Rider jacket which was released during the early 1930s. The Westerner jacket was developed so cowboys, and others of course, could wear it on more dress up occasions. Worn by many legends in movies throughout the 1960's. Elvis Presley appeared in the movie ‘Kissin’ Cousins’ in 1964 wearing the Lee Westerner jacket. Clark Gable wore it in 'The Misfits' in 1961, and Sidney Poitier in Lilies of the Field (1963).


The jacket is the Rider style, a slim fit jacket. The Lee Rider jacket was originally designed as a practical work jacket for cowboys and was the first short Western jacket. It has authentic zigzag stitching, a handy waistband with adjustable side straps and two slanting chest pockets so you can reach it while riding your horse.
