    Anyhow, Paul... you said there is a Lee originals flagship store. I tried googling it, and the only sites that come up are Cultizm and Oki-Ni.

    thanks

    It's a flagship for all of Lee, not just the Originals, on London's Carnaby St. Might be a bit distant for you?

    If you're buying mail order, check out aeroleatherclothing.com too.

    The Edwin-made jeans were available at pretty reasonable prices on Rakuten last time I checked. Okini sales are definitely the best, though, and they do ship to the US.

    Warehouse and Real McCoys are both still making Lee-branded Leepros, IIRC. The former are standard models, the latter are patterned partially after famous wearers (McQueen, DeNiro in Taxi Driver, etc.).

    When did Lee quit making their 101 models (z and b) and move to their current Lee Classic collection? Does anyone know if the new Premium Select is anything like the old 101s or is it more of a revision of the recent designs?

    I picked up a pair of the Premium Select for sh*ts and giggles and because I haven't owned a pair of Lees in quite a while. Will have to say I like them--we'll see how they wear.

    Uh, Lee still makes the 101 line. I'm wearing a pair right now that I got off of Cult late last year. And Barney's was stocking the 101s this season, too.

    For your Euro kids, Truffleschwein stocks Lee. Support your friend in Berlin!

    True. I did see that on Cult and just saw them on Barney's....had been checking more of Lee's main line and didn't see them. Thanks Who.

    I am looking for a good pair of Lee jeans. I like the fit of a Levi's 514 but the quality is crap. I had some Roscoe's a few years ago and loved them but they are history. Can anyone recommend something similar to what I am looking for that is made by Lee?

    Please respond here and by PM

    Thanks a lot!

    If you want a washed pair, ok. Washed denim doesn't reduce in size.

    I prefer a washed look, but not if they don't fit!!
    How much, and where will the Lee selvege shrink?

    Like any other sanforized jeans: a little bit in the waist, maybe ~1" in length. Nothing drastic.

    I did not realize that the ankle opening of the 101s was as small as it is, 7". I am looking for the exact fit of the 101s but with a slightly larger ankle opening, is there another 101 that fits this description?
