Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Finally! Waist high pants for everyday wear! It's been a number of years since I've been able to replace some pants that have worn a bit. For far too long, only hip hugging pants have been available. The quality is good and the leg length is perfect, but it's a bit short in the body. Tall sized pants should be tall in the body as well as the legs, and these are a touch too short. Also, keep in mind that these will not be form fitting. I didn't find any that aren't relaxed fit. While I don't need relaxed fit, these still look pretty good, just a bit loose fitted. I'm hoping there will be some St. John's Bay high rise khakis available soon, too. February 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants! The elastic waistband makes them very comfortable. Most front pleats accentuate my belly. These pleats are nicely designed to minimize that area and add style too. The fabric is nice, not heavy and not skimpy. Most pants shrink after putting them through the laundry and would end up being too short to wear. These don't shrink at all! February 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Quality I have bought the same jeans from Penney's for many years because of their quality and fit but after receiving this recent pair I was very disappointed in the quality of the jeans. The fabric is now way to light and thin compared to the original fabric that they were made from before. I was also disappointed too that they don't offer them in other colors other than black and blue. February 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by The side elastic makes for a comfortable fit I like the pants but I think they would have a more flattering look if it had a flat front instead of a pleated front. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like the side elastic. I always try to get these jeans when they are on sale because I like the way the fit and are probably the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn. I have bought them for years. They wear well. February 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite denim jeans. I purchased my first pair of this style two years ago and they are still in excellent condition after many times through laundry cycle. They fit very well for my body structure and allow room for my knees without restriction. The waist elastic is a plus and is comfortable without binding; and they don't look like "OLD LADY" jeans as some other styles do. The length in a petite is good for me (I am 5' 2 1/2" ) and since they don't shrink, maintain the nice look I want. In other styles, I purchase a regular length because they shrink up. All in all , my favorite denim. January 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Side Elastic Jeans I have been wearing these jeans for many years exclusively but recent changes have caused me to shop elsewhere. I have been requesting other colors-colors you have offered in the past like khaki-for a number of years now. I have also called in because the usual size I buy in pepperstone has somehow changed and the waist is much tighter now than previously. In fact the jeans from 20 years ago in a size smaller still fit and the new ones do not. Black fits fine but mine also faded after just four washings this last time. They are now the same color as the black jeans from three years ago which have been washed many more times. Please if you read these reviews Lee-can you do something to bring back the quality and the variety that you were known for in past years. It would be nice to have these available in stores again so they could be tried on without spending a fortune on shipping and return. At least offer khaki and washed denim for the summer. We long time shoppers would be soooo happy! February 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Waist is smaller I've worn these jeans for many years, but no longer. After buying 3 pairs, all are made with a smaller waist than before. That's good for someone else, but I've moved on. January 26, 2016
