I've added all that I could verify, but I didn't see any Lee's raw denim. Can someone set me straight here?

lee 23 oz.
if you goggle lee raw denim you'll find quite a bit of info.
John Elliott & Co. is a new all American brand - Perfect fit. I have the "Cast" in obsidian raw selvedge and they are an amazing black raw denim.
All made in downtown LA. They also have some really nice sweats with riri zippers.
disclaimer: these are my friends, but I wouldn't rep here if their stuff wasn't amazing. If you are in LA American Rag is carrying them.
Edit: priced 225-320 - all the raw stuff is less.
From what I can see most Lee 101 and Lee repros are now made in Japan (and I've heard Poland too?), not in the USA. But they're still really gorgeous jawnz.
Check out Willliamsburg Garment Co. One man shop. Great raw denims and cuts. Committed to fair prices, as in HALF the price of most of the jeans sold by the companies on this list. To get these great prices, he has strict policies, like no returns. So make sure to look at the fit guide or find one of the very few stockists in your area to try them on. I have the Grand St Camos and LOVE them. I'm also getting Grand St raws soon.
Should Levis be on the list at that price? Their made in USA raw denim is $179+. There's also Hartford denim http://www.hartforddenimcompany.com/.
There are also classic workwear companies making in the US:
Some do raw denim and also do chore coats, overalls etc.

Just saw that Lumina dropped a line of American-made selvedge Denim. I was looking at the sizing chart and noticed that the thigh measurement on a pair of 36 waist jeans is 36 inches. Does that seem like a typo to anyone else? Has anyone had experience with this product?
