Lee was one of the first brands to embrace stretch and has now brought stretch fits to men. Top men’s fashions include the Slim Fit, which fits close but has stretch to give men the room and freedom they need to handle anything life throws their way. Additional styles include the Athletic Fit, which features stretch throughout and offers a fit designed for men with more muscle in their hips and thighs. This new style lets athletic men wear a slimmer, more modern look, and gives extra room where they need it.
