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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WenatcheeShopper Fits my body type
I have never found a style of pants/jeans that fits my body type better than the SHORT - not petite - Lee Side-Elastic jeans and twill pants. My inseam is 29", and it is very difficult to find pants that come in that length. I am bad at hemming pants, so these Lee pants/jeans have been my go-to pants for many years. The elastic at the waist also helps keep them from gapping in the back. I hope Lee never stops making them, and JCPenney never quits selling them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tobpriddy Love no back pockets.
I have worn this brand jeans for many years. I love the fact that there are no back pockets. I know it's not the style now, but my rear end is big enough without a pocket to make it look larger. There quality is very good they last forever with heavy ware.

I love these pants...they fit me so well and are soooo comfortable! I also appreciate that Lees upholds the quality of their products since one time the inside seam unraveled and they gave me a new product! Thanks soooo much!

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by savingmoney trouble finding jeans that fit correctly
sides and back of these jeans fit well, however, the front of these jeans is about 2 inches too long. In order to make them fit in the crotch area you have to pull them up about 2 inches higher in the front than normal.
