Rated 5 out of 5 by Sasch LOVE these jeans!
I am so glad they brought St.John's Bay brand back! These aren't 100% cotton of course, but for anyone who misses good old 100% cotton jeans that fit like a glove and look as good at the end of they as when you put them on, this is about as close as you can get in my opinion. Most stretch jeans that we have to buy these days sag and bag and fall down. Not these. These have a great, slim, flattering fit with a truly straight leg. So many "straight" leg jeans have big, wide, flappy legs that only add bulk, ugly! These are truly straight and they look great without resorting to silly looking peg leg "skinny" jeans! And they do hold their shape all day. The only thing I noticed about these is they run big. I ordered my usual size that I've been wearing for 14 years and it was huge on me. Exchanged them for a size smaller and the fit is perfect. I ordered four pair, couldn't be happier to have this brand back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vera Love the fit,... but what's with the smell???
This is my first time buying St. John's Bay denim jeans and although I love the fit, and they were just what I was looking for, I've had to wash them repeatedly to try and get rid of the burning rubber smell. I've washed them over and over in cold, in hot, I had them outside in the wind, and I thought I finally had gotten rid of it. But I just pulled them out and put them on, and there's that smell again! It's not as strong as it has been originally, but it's really intrusive. Does anyone else have this issue, and if so, did you get rid of the odor? I don't want to return them because I really like their fit. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lassie Just what I was looking for.
I was looking for a slim fit jean but not a "skinny" fit. This jeans fit the requirements.- slender through the thighs but not tight on the calves or ankles. I love the dark rinse finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Petite14 SJB Jeans are a Hit!
I've worn St Johns Bay khakies for several years, but this was my first time to try their jeans.
The quality is outtanding--good design, and extra quality in the fabrics and construction. I ordered my usual size and they were perfect, except (as usual) I still had to shorten the petites a half inch. After laundering they dried smooth.
I will say that the front pockets are very shallow. Certainly not a big deal, but I'd like to be able to stash my phone in one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Likesitsimple Great jeans!
On line ordering is easy and hassle free. The jeans are great. I have these jeans and just wanted more. Truth is I really needed the next size up this time. I tried to use the petite size so I didn't have to alter the length, but it was not quite long enough so I returned them to the store and bought the regular length in the store, NO ISSUES with purchase. Jeans have some stretch so the fit is comfortable when you gain a few pounds! I don't like tight and these are not. The legs are slim, not tight or fitted and not too large. I am 5'6, 130 with hips and size 8 fits a little tight on hips and size10 fit like I wanted it to so I have both sizes for the weight flucturation. Hope this helps with your ordering. I have been pleased with this jean x 2 yrs, works better than all the others I have worn or tried to wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by luckymommyof3 If you don't need pockets...
This could be good jeans if it weren't for the pockets. Price is great. I wear a tall, and they are very hard to find. Cut is very good. Ordered 2 blue colors and both were nice looking. Now the "but." The pockets were 2" deep. I could not believe it so I got out my measuring tape. The front pockets are only big enough for a few folded tissues. I wouldn't even trust keys (2 @ most) because I would be afraid they would fall out. I usually carry a purse when I go out, but I like to put certain things in my pockets also. Took them back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jkbklyn Pockets too shallow
Like the jeans and the price, but the pockets are only 2" deep!! May have to return these, afraid my keys will fall out, and sure can't fit a phone it them. My other SJB bootleg jeans with the slender tummy has a standard 4" deep pocket.

These jeans are the best I've ever found, have been wearing them for a long time, and I hope Penneys NEVER gets rid of them. Stretchy material makes for the most comfort, and the style is great and they fit perfect!
