Hey there,

I'm new to this forum, but reading here from time to time. Great job, it helped me a lot of times. I'm really in LVC and at beginnig to know something about real Deadstock Levis, but I know literally nothing about Vintage Lee Jeans. And in the opposite to Levis, there is not much to find. 

So I would like to ask you, if the experts here could help me to identify these two - I guess - Vintage Lee Riders 101-Z. In Comparison to the specifications of Vintage Levis from '66 - '70, I would think, these are maybe from the '70s? 

No Made in USA on the Flasher, no Wash Tag, no Selvedge-ID. What do you also need to see, to make an estimation?

Here is the first one:





And the second one:





Okay, so that's it. Could anyone please help me? Smile And I hope, this is the right place for this topic. Please don't blame me, if it's notTongue

Best

I'm not an expert but I think they might be older. the second pair could be late 50's? first pair early 60's?  Its definitely harder to find good source for dating them

check out this pair

I think its frowned upon to make new threads for small questions like this, but there is no one left to get mad ya Party

We have a Lee thread, that would be the place to post these.
Top pair have R and MR after lee on pocket tab and patch, so after 1968 but before mid 70's. Second one is earlier with the half selvedge maybe late 1950's.
Only a guesstamate, sorry.

Thank you for the quick answers. That's a kind of direction!

Sorry for the wrong thread. I would consider this the next time. Is there any possibility to postpone this question in the right topic?

Thanks a lot!
