My old trusty Lee Archive Japan 1952 denim after many years of wear. Vintage belt was a Wisconsin flea market find.

Lee Archive 1937 hair on hide cowboy pants. These must be over fifteen years old by now.

I always wonder, why can't you find genuine Lee Cowboy jackets for sale on eBay? I only see replicas. It is even difficult to see photos of those jackets. On the other hand, from time to time you can find original Levi's Type I jackets.
Weren't they successful in their time?
Does anyone know the reason?

I’ve heard this same question asked, over and over for years now. My best guess, would be a combination
Of name recognition and location....Location meaning- Lee not being so popular on the west coast, when you get away
From the dryer climate of the west coast...wet damp weather is hellish on clothing of all kinds- buildings/ barns being torn down....Still to this day, most people that are tearing down the barns and old buildings- they pile up the clothing and burn it. A month ago, a turn of the century pair of Levi’s were dug out of the trash....Most people still consider old clothing trash

As for Levi- The name recognition is there, a good deal of peeps out in the world- know that Levi’s have value, and they seem to have been preserved way more that any Lee

That’s my 2 cents
