To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought the black pair in 6 Long. They fit okay. Needed a long because so many pants run short for me. They were VERY long but I was afraid to go shorter because of variance in what is considered "regular" length for different styles.
Saw the palisade pair on sale, got the same size. Perfect on the length but a little tight. I gave it a pass on inconsistency of sizing because the material make-up is different for different colors.
Did an exchange and return for the Palisade in an 8 Long. The 8 long are at LEAST an inch shorter than the 6 Long. I don't get it. Can't even exchange for a different pair because they're now out of stock. This is why it takes me weeks to months to find pants. No consistency in make of the clothing. I get burnt out on looking.
Also, front pockets don't even fit my small pocket wallet. The wallet is only slightly bigger than the 4 cards it holds.
I wear an 8 in most pants, a six in others. I have a pair of Lee relaxed fit straight leg jeans that I bought last fall. If anything, the pair that I have is slightly big and too relaxed. This pair, in the exact same size , 8L was too short (no way is this a 33” length) and I could barely button them. What’s more, I would characterize the rise as too low, about 2” below navel, perfect spot for muffin top enhancement. If there is spandex in this Jean, it’s not apparent to me. Awful.
I'm happy with this purchase. These Lee jeans fit comfortably and are slimming as promised. They don't pull down in the back when bending or sitting. The length is good (not too short). After reading reviews, I sized up to size 8 (I usually buy size 6 in other brands), and I'm glad I did. For reference, I am 5' 6" , weigh 135 lbs, waist 28 and I have an athletic build, meaning my thighs and calves are muscular, not skinny. Finding pants and jeans that fit my thicker thighs is always a challenge for me, but these are great. The color is light gray, the material is medium weight, not thin and not too stiff, with slight stretch as well. I wash them in cold water and hang to dry. I intend to purchase these in the khaki color when my size is available again. I definitely recommend these quality Lee jeans.
I like these jeans and have several pair. However, this one fit a full size smaller than the others I have in the same size. I waited to try them on and the return window has passed. My recommendation is to be sure to try them on for fit as soon as they arrive.
