Dazed gives a detailed look at those Lee Rider Jackets specially copped for The XX’s tour (of North America at the moment). “Mercury Prize winners, the XX have joined forces with denim brand Lee to personalise their own on-stage denim jackets for the current tour. The XX chose Lee’s iconic classic Rider Jacket originally created for cowboys and ranch workers back in the 1930s, which was one of the first denim jackets of its kind. A limited number have been created for the band and their entourage to celebrate the current 2010 tour. The Lee Rider Jacket has been customised with their band’s ‘X’ on the back in tonal stitch and in white above the front pocket.”
