Lee® and community-based streetwear brand, The Hundreds, recently announced a collaboration that blends their unique styles and histories to form a one-of-a-kind collection of graphic T-shirts, hoodies, pants and other accessories. 

The collection, now available on The Hundreds app, Lee.com and select stores, was driven by a shared philosophy of people over product and aims to create style steeped in rich stories, cultural moments, and creative passion.

“This collection celebrates the shared history of workwear and culture between Lee and The Hundreds,” said Betty Madden, vice-president of Global Design, Lee. “Denim and culture go hand in hand, and Lee has played an integral role for more than a century. The Hundreds’ streetwear sensibility paired with our rich heritage has resulted in a collection of fresh, modernized styles that will excite fans of both brands.”

The Hundreds X Lee collaboration incorporates classic design elements and modern touches to bring fans of both brands pieces that will only get better with age. The collection includes graphic T-shirts, Long Sleeves, Pullover Hoodies, Crewnecks, and matching sets of Chore Jackets and Work Pants, as well as a stone-washed Tote Bag. The pieces range from $39 - $120.  

“In aligning with collaborative partners, The Hundreds seeks a story first. That’s why we’re drawn to American heritage brands like Lee, which carry a rich history and have touched  so many lives,” said Bobby Kim, Co-Founder of The Hundreds. “Everyone remembers their first interaction with Lee jeans - not unlike the enduring denim itself, the brand was here long before us and will outlive us all. The Hundreds is proud to collaborate with Lee on a project that stands the test of time.”

Lee spent decades as America’s leading workwear brand, crafting iconic pieces like Union-Alls™ and Loco Chore Jacket that combined quality, durability and a polished aesthetic still popular today. Features like triple-stitched seams, Buddy Lee and the Lazy ‘S’ curved pocket have become synonymous with Lee around the world. 

The Hundreds has focused on workwear staples since the beginning. While its apparel is reminiscent of ‘90s workwear and Californian subculture tribes, the brand brings its unique perspective to each collaboration, reimagining and remixing details to create something fresh and new.

The Hundreds X Lee collection will be released on Thursday, June 3 at Midnight EST on The Hundreds app and online shop, Lee.com, as well as select stores worldwide.
