Lee was founded by Henry David Lee in Salina, Kansas as Lee Mercantile Company in 1889. Lee has become one of the largest international manufacturers of denim and has remained a popular retailer for over a century. The company is known as a leading company in casual denim styles and work wear clothing.
Lee uses efficient manufacturing methods and currently creates about 5,000 pairs of jeans each day as well as several other products of high demand. The company has set out to make jeans that can be worn comfortably in any season. They make their denim with a left-hand twill pattern making their jeans feel softer and more relaxed. Even their tight styles feel comfortable. In the 1930's Lee gained popularity as one of the first quality companies to produce work wear.
In the 1950's Lee began to invent new lines, including the casual line that Lee has become best known for. They have always worked hard to design with comfort and fashion in mind making them one of the most well-liked denim brands of all time. By the 1970's Lee had started catering to the changing fashion seasons and eventually introduced children and youth lines as well as their fit jeans for women.
Their brand has always made jeans that flatter different body types and try to take the hassle out of shopping for the perfect fitting pair of jeans. They design based on the differences in height and size of hips, thighs, waist and even stomach. This makes it easier to find the perfect fitting jeans and that is what makes Lee denim a staple to the wardrobes of most.
The company has become one of the leading brands in the world, promoting traditions, dedication and the simple joys of life. Their campaigns encourage a fashionable lifestyle and compassion while celebrating family, friends and community. Their quality is guaranteed and the company works hard to ensure their customers will be happy with their purchase. The company has always stood as a leader in quality casual denim and will continue to for years to come.
