Deadstock 1950’s Lee dark duck overalls



Fantastic early 1950’s Lee dark duck overalls in deadstock condition. Features include Long L buttons, United Garment Workers Union label inside pocket, H.D. Lee sewn on label, dark duck with yellow stitching, original production chalk marks & thread run off, double knees & pockets.


Wanted to keep them for myself, maybe even start wearing them for work, until Larry of Heller's Cafe aka the King of Vintage mentioned what he figured they were worth. Lots of interest the couple of times they were displayed at the Bowl and recently made their way to Tokyo Japan, where they can currently be found for sale at Little Reata, another Inspiration event exhibitor and home of some fine deadstock vintage workwear & rockabilly clothing.

  1. Thank you for making this post. You have helped me get a general date of a Lee button I found metal detecting. The button has the same long L design.
