    Whoa, nice! If you're a denim nerd like me, you know Lee Japan Archive makes some of the most accurate reproduction denim out there. Any chance you'll be getting in more of the earlier Lee's, like the 1934's or the hair on hide Lee's?

    You are spot on there, Grant........Lee Rules!!

    As LVC have lost the Cone Mill denim and are making all the 501xx in Turkey now, we'll won;t be getting any more of these for a while so we'll be trying to get as much Lee Japan Denim as possible, however its harder to get than it is to sort out Brexit

    Hey Stanier, FWIW, I have a 34-35" waist (depending on how much I eat and drink) and take a 33 waist in Lee Japan denim.
    Inseam is usually marked 33", which gives plenty for a healthy cuff.

    Is that because Edwin (makers of Lee Archive) is a pain in the ass to deal with?

    Thanks Grant. Sounds like we’re a similar size, depending on the eating and drinking of course!;):D

    I haven't worn jeans for years but when I did I always wore Lee and always matched by waist size
