Thanks, glad you like them, these were nearly all the early Lee Euro Rider reissues, with fabric from Kaihara and Nisshinbo. Great jeans, which all cost around Â£55. Supposedly the first few pairs were Sanforized, the next few weren't, but it made little difference to shrinkage. Like LVC, the Lee repros, both these and the Edwin-made ines, are all over the place in terms of size and shrinking. It is strange how similar they all look... I did wear them all the same, with no washing for the first six months. they are all l/h denim which seems to give a particular vintage look, and they all retain their indigo. That said, I had one pair I washed once too often & was really looking bland... so I used them as work jeans and scrubbed the floor, etc, in them for a couple of years. When my g/f washed them by accident a couple months ago (normally cause for a serious row) they turned out pretty nice. I sold them to the wonderful Beatle over on SuFu. I've sold most of these but still ahve about 3 pairs left, one raw and unwashed, the other couple on the way...
