Rated 3 out of 5 by hummergirl Love with the one exception
I've worn these jeans for years for style and fit. My everyday attire is usually jeans with a top over, or shorts/bermudas with a top over in the summer. Even though the zipper tab is behind a fabric strip, the top of the metal pull has a sharp, short protruding metal pin which pokes holes in my shirts. It may not be noticeable to the eye, but you can feel it. This is on every zipper tab. Holes don't happen when I wear other brands or shorts with zippers. Does this happen to anyone else? I have about 14 pairs, all colors and when I wear them I tuck a piece of fabric inside the waistband and fold it over on the outside, then put on my top. It helps, but Lee should do something about this. I've written to the company with no response. Other jean brands don't have this problem.

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!

I've been wearing this style Lee Jeans for at least 20 years. They fit great - love the side elastic - and they hold up very well.
Wish there were more options with this style, ie. pocket detail would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieJ Buy these black denim jeans!
These pants are the best fitting denims for comfort, quality and the very reasonable price. One of the few I have found that truly run "true to size" and always fit.
They're not the fashion-forward skinny, tight jeans so popular now, but I like them for ease and comfort, and am a size 8 petite. Although they're not tight, they certainly aren't loose and sloppy-looking.

Rated 1 out of 5 Poor quality - where is the great cotton quality of previous years?
Returned product. Cheap quality & fit. Where are the famous brands I could mail order ?

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.
