Lee Company, Inc.'s Lee Jeans, a dominant force in the denim and casuals categories, announced the company's licensing agreement with Quebec-based Paris Geneve, which will produce men's underwear, thermal underwear and loungewear under the Lee brand label for Canadian mid-tier retailers. This new agreement enables the Lee brand to build upon its 120-year heritage and success of providing quality products at a value across a broad range of apparel categories important to today's consumers.

“Through our partnership, we are leveraging our category and brand expertise to translate the strength of the enduring Lee brand and create innerwear products with the features today's consumers desire most.”
