Here are the measurements for both of the Mccoy Lee's, they are both tagged w33. I have also measured the w34 Edwin 52 101z's to give a comparison.

Mccoy TD 101z/ Mccoy 101b /Edwin 52 101z

Waist 18 / 17.5 /17.5

Fr Rise 11.5 / 11 / 11.5

R Rise 15.7 / 15.6 / 15.2

Thigh 12 / 12.5 / 13

Knee 9 / 9.3 / 9.8

Hem 7.8 / 8.6 / 9

Inseam 34.2 / 35 / 34

any experiences on those?

measurements are missing. guess they will be up any time soon!

Is it just me or are the pockets not as far apart as they usually are on Leepros?

Damn. Someone beat me to the punch. I actually just ordered (and received) these from Clever Id (excellent experience, can't recommend them highly enough. Shizuo is extremely helpful). They're currently soaking (apparently they're not sanforized) and I'll have some post-soak fit pics up. I took some pre-soak pics too. When they're dry, I 'll post pics and measurements. Even pre-soak, I'm really happy with the fit already.

this site seems to be down for quite a while!

Like Edmond, I haven't had any issues with the Clever ID site. No problems at all actually.

Here's a link to the D1388 with their measurements.

The jeans should hopefully be dry by tomorrow so I can post my own measurements and pics.

So I've been wanting a pair of Lee's for a while and tried on the 101B (I think it was a 1930's Edwin model) and really had a tough time with the anti-fit and the wide-set pockets.

I did some searching to see what other options were available and stumbled across the Studio D'Artisan D1388. It's not a true Lee repro like the Edwins or the McCoys but I was also looking for a more modern cut and less wide-set pockets. Plus, I already have the SD103 which I'm really happy with so I thought I'd give these a try. I got them from Clever-ID (no proxy required, they ship internationally, and Shizuo corresponds in English pretty effectively).

I hot soaked for about 2 hours and hung dry. The denim is very nice. It's unsanforized, left-hand twill, doesn't have the crotch rivet, and doesn't look to be as tight of a weave as the SD103. Post-soak, I'm already seeing the leg twist and for me it's weird to see it going the other way as I'm used to wearing right-hand twill denim.

Pre-Soak and Post-Soak Measurements (in inches):

Waist: 32.5 -> 31.5

Length: 33.5 -> 32

Front Rise: 10.25 -> 9.75

Back Rise: 14.25 ->113.5

Upper Thigh: 11.25 -> 11

Knee: 9 -> 8.5

Hem: 8.5 -> 8

Detail Shots snaked from Clever-ID:

Pre-Soak Pics:

Post-Soak Pics:

Overall, I'm really happy with the way they fit. As with my SD103, they're really starchy so extra stiff right now. I'm sure they'll wear in nicely in time. These will go into my rotation immediately but I doubt I'll get any serious wear for a long time as I'm a paper pusher that has to wear a suit to work.

TT the Mccoy 101 B's are not anti-fit imo . They are not far off the taxi driver model above the knee.
