Lee Jeans Art by Raul Gonzalez

Inspiration: Upcycled Patriotic Denim Art


Here at Lee, we consider jeans to be pieces of art. Our designers are artists who create wearable pieces of art inspired by your body and lifestyle.

We also recognize that at some point, it’s time to retire these pieces of art. Styles change. And for most of us, that just means a trip to the nearest thrift store followed by a shopping spree … but for others, it means it’s time to recreate.

As we celebrate America, we’re inspired by these pieces of patriotic art created using upcycled denim by some creative jean-iuses.
