Rated 5 out of 5 by MrOrdinary13 Better fit than other brands and Lee models
I've tried Levi and Wrangler jeans (and, years ago, Penney's own brand -- I forget what they were called), and other models of Lee jeans, and these fit me the best. They have a bit of stretch built in which makes them more comfortable for bending and kneeling, and they don't bind in the crotch as much as others I've tried. Fit depends on your build -- mine is about average for a 6'2" guy. I read one review of these where a lady says they fit well on her husband who doesn't have a rear end. I do have one, probably slightly larger than average, so they seem to fit a wide variety of body types. They fit me well enough that, unless they change the fit, I won't bother trying any others. I've got 5 pairs of them and am going to order more when they're on sale again. Note that the lighter-colored ones seem to run a bit smaller (1/2" or so) in the waist than the darker-colored ones -- don't know why, maybe made in a different place? Another reviewer mentioned liking the belt loops; I use a double-thickness (1/4" thick) leather belt an inch and a half wide, and these loops handle it no problem, with enough extra room to tuck the end in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cliffdweller Best I've had
I ordered one pair in double black. The fabric is lighter than most jeans and that's a plus. The spandex gives the perfect level of comfort and they fit me like they were tailor made for me. So, experience tells me to hurry up and order more before they're changed and "improved". Another double black - fit and fabric identical to the first. I also ordered a pair in the saddle color as well. But the saddle had a longer inseam and bigger waist in a heavier fabric. Still acceptable, but very different than the double black. I order most of my clothing online and run into this problem frequently. I expected better from Lee. But I'll still rate the jeans as the best I've had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gardenartist Heavyweight jeans - nice color choices
My husband has been wearing the classic Lee jean for 30 years. He likes them and the newer stretch version. However, the fabric on those styles has gotten thinner and thinner, and they now wear out way too fast. I asked him to try these, and we have discovered they are a heavier fabric which can stand up to everyday use at work. He does alot of bending and kneeling in them and they hold up. He cannot wear any of the relaxed fit, as he has no rear end. Of the standard classic fit options, these are the best. However, for summer, one might find them too warm. They are tightly woven. Great for cold weather though. They fit great for guys with no rears. However, I gave the fit a 4 because we need 27 or 28" inseams.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TEB299 Double check length
For years I've bought jeans size 34/32 and never had a problem. I recently purchased 3 pairs of Lee jeans size 34/32 and all 3 pairs I had to shorten by 2 inches. That seems excessive to me. I did not shrink 2 inches. I am going to try one more time and order 30 inch length and maybe it will be the desired 32 inch. Keep that in mind if you order a specific length. Everything else is satisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mostuff Husband Love Lee's Jeans
I bought these Premium Classic Straight Leg Jeans for my Husband in the classic Blue jean. He loves the soft feel and the straight leg. He has short, thin legs and these pants don't stick out as wide as some of his other jeans he owns. I think the softness at his age is appreciated. I must wash these over and over again. They come out great.
Well, He asked me if they came in black? They do and I ordered them for him. He loves them just as much. He likes these as his dress up jeans. Lee's have been aroung for a long time. You can't find the everywhere, so I am glad JCPenney carries this Brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAMMYSON EXCELLENT IN EVERY CATAGORY
I PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT FOR MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT HE LOVES THEM.
THE QUALITY, STYLE AND PRICE ARE THE TOP RATING I HAVE SEEN IN JEANS 100%
I DO WASH THEM IN COLD WATER IN WHITE VINEGAR WHICH YOU CAN FIND ON LINE TO LOCK THE DYE COLOR IN FROM FADING THE FIRST TIME.
I WOULD RECOMEND THESE JEAN TO EVERYONE AND HAVE HAD DIFFERENT BRANDS AND STYLES IN THE PAST.
I EVEN BOUGHT SEVERAL IN THE STORE AND WILL BE BUYING MORE ON LINE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbart Nice update
These jeans are a very nice change of pace. The tiny bit of spandex provides some give and allows for a more form-fitting jean with style. Great for semi-formal occasions or work Fridays. Yet the pants are neither baggy nor slim-tight and have a fairly classic straight leg. No flairing or pockets of air. The pants are new and I have several pairs. So we'll have to see how long they last and how durable they are. Seem very well made, though, and sell for an excellent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fancypantsnyc The fit and look I expected
I'm not against wearing low-rise jeans from time to time, and I enjoy the two pairs from the Lee Modern series that I recently bought. But the Premium Classic Straight is the fit I'm most used to, and what I expect from Lee. It's a slightly fuller, higher-rise fit than the Premium Select Straight (by just the amount that I need), yet still has an overall trim look. "Classic" is the right word -- nice pair of jeans.
