Even though I wasn't able to have my Lee jeans customized the way I like it, I learned a lot about the process of making a pair of jeans stand out. I saw in the stations the process of  fading, staining, whiskering, patching, grinding, and embellishing a piece of Lee original zip-fly jeans. There is so much to do and so many opportunities to create a jeans that I can call my own. Lee sure did inspired me to make my own.

Here are more photos of the Lee Denim DIY Workshop.

True to its Stay Curious campaign, the legendary brand continues to ignite the passions of individuals, inspiring them to look beyond the ordinary, take a step into the unexplored and live out their dreams through fashion.

More power Lee!
