Back for a bit more advice. Couple years ago Whodini suggested some lee 101z for me and they worked out well except that they were always a bit tight in the thigh but need replacing now. I no longer see them on the lee website and they seem to be selling for considerably more on other sites. Looking for any suggestions for a similar style as the 101z that may be slightly more roomy in the thigh and sub $100. Sub $100 sounds tough for nice denim. I know the new "Lees" (either Edwin or Real McCoy) are well over that amount. I think there those Eastern European "gold label" ones are cheaper, but they dont look real quality to me. It'll sound odd, but Ive really liked my old Ben Davis Logger jeans. They are based on the Lee cut from years ago, but are a little wider in the leg. Similar in rise and seat fit. The denim is nothing special, but they are cheap and a great work jean if you like the classic Lee fit.
