There is no symbol of American denim culture more iconic than a vintage Buddy Lee doll. Only a vintage Levi’s western banner or a pair of Big E’s come close. I have been in love with Cowboy Buddy since the first time I saw him when I was a kid. I have wanted one since I re-discovered him in Japanese Denim magazines in the early ’90′s. This one is in my home and came to me through my friend David who is a vintage dealer & collector. He is in perfect condition with beautiful raw denim, copper burrs and rivets, scarf and cowboy hat.
