There are several Japanese companies doing Lee repros. Real McCoys does it, Warehose does it and Edwin too.
AFAIK, the 'Lee Archives' you can easily come by are the ones produced by Edwin.
Lee was clever to realize that the Japanese are able of doing nearly perfect repros and allowed them to produce. As opposed to Levi's who sued them and opened their LVC line which has some mistakes every now and then

sorry, must have overread your last 2 sentences...

still I think Edwin is the official and first partner of Lee and RMC and Warehouse have to pay Edwin for making Lee-repros. I remember reading something about that on Sufu.

El Argentino, thanks for the recommendations. I like the Imperial shearers because they don't have the giant back pockets that the N&F have, but yeah, they are a little expensive. I guess I like more vintage-inspired details but in a slimmer fit. The LVC 1947 501s look pretty cool, too. Does anyone have any experience with those?

Now that they seem to have sorted out their sizing issues, LVC is a fairly good offering. A bit pricey perhaps for what you get, but they're solid denim and a number of members here will swear by them. I personally have a pair of '47s that never fail. Really versatile, really good fit. Decent denim, decent construction. I'd highly recommend them - check out the various 501 models they have from throughout the 40s, 50s, and 60s and zero in on a specific style of the cut you enjoy. (if I had to do it over again, I might just spring for the '54 501z, but just sayin'...)

Is it necessary to soak raw denim before starting to wear them? I bought a pair of Levis yesterday and have been wearing them all day, but I did not soak them. Is it important to do just that? I never soaked my APCs...

thanks for the help

If your Levis are shrink-to-fit, I would soak them before you wear them. If not, then you don't have to soak.

Ok cool, they aren't the shrink-to-fit ones.

Thanks!

So a while back (November) I bought my first pair of raw denim (Naked and Famous weird guy indigo selvedge). I went with the smallest that fit on me, and after only wearing them for probably around 21 days since then they haven't really started to stretch out. The thighs are still skin tight, and the fades haven't started. 

 

Did I do something wrong? Was I supposed to wear them daily (I lost motivation)?

I bought myself a pair of slim fit jeans from Old Navy. For 20 bucks, it does the trick when I don't feel like wearing my APC.
