It´s an all time classic and it took me a while to get a not too overpriced one. This one should be from the 60th/70th. What I found out is that the age can be dated by the label and the lining, so if some expert has a hint I would glad. A label in the right inside pocket has the number 9037318 if it helps. At first glance i thought the lining at the cuffs was damaged. But at a closer look, it is just the way they attached the lining jacket to the outer denim jacket.

    horizontal stripes date it as late 60s early 70s. The fact it does not say lot 101j or a size on the storm rider label mean it isn’t one of the more coveted 60s ones I believe. Still union made, which is what the number relates to. Hope that helps.

    The jacket is early 70s. The previous commenter is incorrect with the comment of rarity based not he missing size on the label All that does is date it to later in the 70s. It was soon after this version where the label became printed (all the ones you see on eBay and being mislabeled as 50s-60s versions) and not embroidered.

    As with most vintage, the labels become more and more generic as mass production increases. Dropping the embroidering of the size and lot number allows them to use the same labels on all jackets vs having them create per size labels. The embroidering of the size was then moved to the printed tags which would normally fall off/disintegrate with wear.

    Older Lee jean jackets had the same brass buttons on the back just like on the front. I am not sure about the storm riders but I suspect this would be very late 70’s or 80’s.
