Lee Denim was founded by Henry David Lee in 1889 when he opened his first garment factory in Salina, Kansas, producing dungarees and jackets. In 1913, the Union-All work jumpsuit was created, followed by the first-ever "Overall" in 1920 - laying the foundation for Lee's early growth. Also in 1920, the Buddy Lee doll was launched for promotional use, but quickly became a popular play doll. Through the '20s, Lee introduced many new innovations to manufactured denim, most notably the zip fasten fly. Throughout the '30s and '40s Lee continued to build on their brand, becoming the USA's number 1 manufacturer of work clothes. During the 50s Lee ventured into casual wear. Lee expanded its presence throughout the 60s, spreading to 51 countries and consolidating with VF Corporation in 1969. The company continued to expand its fashion lines throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, launching Lee National Denim Day in 1996.
