As if pulled straight out of our archives, the Lee® 101 x Alife® denim jacket highlights the intersection between art and heritage. This small-batch masterpiece draws inspiration from the Lee 101-J and is carefully crafted from 1968 White Oak® denim of Cone Mills, the last selvedge denim mill in the United States. In collaboration with Alife, this modern rendition of the 101-J nods to Lee’s role in the ‘80s hip-hop scene of New York City with a big, co-branded leather patch on the back.

With plenty of character to be admired, the 13.5 oz. right-hand twill was woven on Cone Mill’s narrow, vintage Draper “fly shuttle” looms. Producing only 100 yards per day, the process was slow but well worth the wait. This deadstock denim from 1968 has its own signature look influenced by vibrations of those looms stationed on the old wooden planks of the White Oak Plant. It’s also dipped six times in indigo dye and finished with a red selvedge ID. This jacket features a regular fit that tapers through the arms and a slightly cropped length. For a looser fit, we recommend sizing up. In medium and rigid worn washes, the Lee 101 x Alife jacket is a limited-edition treasure you won’t want to miss out on. Get one or grab them both while you still can.
