If you are in doubt, check inside. The original Westerner patch is still in place, adding to the heritage of this jacket.

That heritage dates back to 1948, the first ‘shorter style’ western jacket on the shelves and with a slim fit too. A classic then and still a stylish statement today.

The new version is, however, made of a new cloth, That’s called LIZ and is described as a modern interpretation of the archival Western Weave which was unique to Lee and its clothing, this time finished in what’s described as an Alabaster Stone colour.

That colour looks like a chalky shade – not white, but certainly not brown. Something in-between.

In terms of the design, you get an authentic zig-zag placket, twin chest pockets (slanted for access whilst on a horse) and gunmetal ‘Wobbly Lee’ buttons that are straight out of the Lee archive. That heritage Westerner label finishes things off.

Part of a wider collection from Lee but for me, this is the pick of it. But it doesn’t come cheap, selling for £275.
