Iron Heart has a model, 1955s, that is repro of the classic 50's cut with a high waist. Not cheap though. http://www.ironheart.co.uk/bottoms/1955s.html
Those look like great jeans - I'd say worth the investment!
A couple other options,
Dyer & Jenkins
These jeans are made in the USA, ostensibly never leaving the USA. $125? a bargain for what you are getting.
Made somewhere out of sturdy materials, the true "Dad" jean. $40 for the 15.75 ounce weight.
I plan on owning both pairs in the next month.
For what it's worth,
Deep Pocket Jean Co.
Made in LA as well; I do own a pair made by them, not terribly impressed.
I realize I am posting to a discussion which is almost a couple of years old. In any event I have always preferred high rise pants and jeans. It took me sometime to find a great value in high-rise jeans. And they are Wranglers whose back seam is 17" (I just measured mine) the front is 13". For me these are the most comfortable jeans. They are not skinny jeans but the pant leg width at the bottom is 9". I have usually bought mine in black and they come with a "comfort flex" waistband. And when they say waistband, it's an excellent waistband which means the waist does not roll-up like it does with so many jeans whose fabric is light. The best part is they are extremely inexpensive coming in around $ 20. The only drawback is they don't come in dark indigo. For me the black jeans work best.
Check them out at Walmart (yes folks, Walmart :-))
Hope someone will find this information useful. Oh! one more thing I don't work for Wrangler's or anything lol!!!
