This is a really good comment and I think you make many valid points. To be honest, I haven't seen much online conversation about LEE jeans lately and was unaware that they are still a major player among the original big three (Levi's, LEE and Wrangler) and especially in the raw denim field. When I hear LEE I usually think of the famous LEE Storm Rider jacket but not necessarily raw denim jeans. You have given me an education.
I have done some exploring on the LEE site and see they now do a 15 ounce denim and even 21 ounce denim (which I find far more appealing).

I will definitely have to check out the LEE jeans store the next time I'm in the city now that you have peaked my interest and then maybe I will change my mind. In the meantime, here are a pair of RRL E/W jeans I bought about 5 years ago (after apppox 6-8 machine washes) next to pair of the same jeans I bought for $167 (half price) about 6 months later and have never worn yet.
Anyone know how sizing on the 101s work. Are these vanity size like RRL, or order natural waist size? Am thinking of giving these a spin.

Soliciting opinions re: the Indigo moleskin workshirt - worthwhile or just another blue shirt?


Hard to tell without being able to feel the fabric. I’m a sucker for metal cat eye buttons and it’s 40% linen so seems worth giving it a try.

It's a solid shirt. Decent weight fabric in a deep blue (surprisingly accurate color pic on RRL). Of course, the buttons aren't attached very well but are nice cat-eye. It's understated. More of a shirt you wear to work instead of a 'work shirt.' P2P on a L is 23". It's been one of my favorites.

That coat is one of the ones that got away. I misjudged the sizing and went with the standard medium, but when I realized that all that all the small sizes were already gone...
sorry man, it was a good one. Hope I didn't take that last small.
