If you are looking at the heavy denims there is also a Paulrose jeans in 17oz that are very similar to 1947 501s http://blueowlworkshop.blogspot.ca/2...eavy-slub.html
The Lee 101 Z by McCoy's are still available - new and completely unused. Please send me a PM with your price suggestion, if you are interested.

Still looking for some selvedge jeans in a lighter weight denim with a longer rise of at least 11" and having no luck.
I can't seem to find a brand that offers a zipper fly, and long rise,
For a decent price new or used.
Is the lee 101z the closest to what I am searching for?
The Japanese brands are a bit out of my price range .
I'm close to nabbing a pair of 1940ís 501s. Mint. I hesitated and I hope I didn't lose out. Deja vu for me. Hitting head on wall...
Just bought my second pair of Momotaros, oh well....
Thank you gray land I ll do that.
Madison is just a 1 1/2 away
Does anyone own a pair of these jeans? How much did they shrink? Thank you.
