I have the edwin/lee repros of the old 101z and 101b. Great jeans, very high rise. There is little or no taper to them however, which makes for a wide leg (the 101b more than the 101z). Perfect for use with big boots like engineers, but otherwise can be tricky. Actually, the Lee/Edwin Gold Label 101z has an 8.75" rise. I never understood why two versions of the same cut differed so radically.
