Rated 3 out of 5 by CalifDreamin42 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!

The jeans fit well through the waist but the medium length was way too long for me. I had to return them.

I have ordered these pants for years, but their fit is different. They are a straight leg now and not tapered. I don't like them as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rapunzel side elastic jeans
I have been wearing this style of jean for 15+ years. Originally I could buy them in retail outlets...now only on-line. I would like to have Lee offer this style in all cotton (or mostly/more cottone) as they were in the beginning. The polyester is a comfort factor...it stretches with you and is not binding. Sometimes I just long for a 'real' pair of jeans. I wear a size 18 misses, so the polyester does increase the life of the jeans (that dreaded inner seam wearing through and no way to fix it). The side elastic allows me to wear the jeans without waist band gap. I'm a big but still have a waist...
Many years ago when I called customer service at Lee, I had a problem with the same size pants not fitting...they explained that there could be as much as an inch variance when assembled! If it's an inch less...it will not fit my fat legs...that I've had even as a size 12 teenager...one of those genetic gifts.
Other than the assembly variance...I prefer the fit and longevity of this style.

These jeans are great: nice fit, comfy, nice cut. Just one thing to watch out for: the "Bristol" color is misrepresented online. The actual jeans are a much lighter blue, and the denim is a little funny, a sort of slightly lighter kind.

I love the elastic at the waist, but these straight leg jeans are huge in the legs. They are the baggiest pants I've ever purchased. I personally dislike them, but if you are looking for at the waist, straight leg, baggy jeans, this is your jean!

I love Lee side-elastic jeans because I know they fit well in the waist. I don't have to worry about gaps in the back. I would like for the average length to come back. I had to buy long and then cut them off to fit. Otherwise, I love this product.
