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.
I had expected a similar pant to the ones I had previously ordered. Cotton with a bit of synthetic. No such luck. I could not wear this 3-synthetic blend all day-it would be like being wrapped in plastic. I noticed that all the cotton choices are out of stock.
I didn't know my size for Lee pants and there was no size chart on amazon, so I went to Lee.com and found their size chart. I measured my waist and hips and matched according to their chart, which put me at a size 14 which is what I ordered. It is WAY TOO BIG!!!!! by at least 2 sizes! I am not happy!
I have been a loyal Lee brand customer for over 14-years. I have purchased women's shorts, relaxed fit pants and jeans on a regular basis, however, for the past few years I have noticed the quality diminishing on Lee's products. In fact, I recently ordered five pairs of women's Relaxed Fit All day Jeans in the same size, I was shocked at the poor quality, cheap fabric and shoddy sewing, with each pair sized radically different, and one pair had a leg sewn clear through. Moreover, I highly doubt the validity of the other Amazon reviews that say these pants are great; they may be fake reviews or the reviewers are not familiar with with the prior Lee pant quality.
I am extremely disappointed that Lee has chosen to reduce the quality of their women's pants to the cheapest and poorest quality made that they are not worth purchasing anymore. If they have to charge more to make a better quality of pant, then they should do so but do not sell these horribly poor quality and uninspected quality control pants to the public, especially their loyal customers!
Lee has lost me as a valued customer and frankly, they will lose a great many more customers too. The shop where I purchased their clothing even stopped carrying Lee pants stating that the quality is so low customers stopped buying them; that is why I had to order them on Amazon. I am sending these pants back as well.
I bought one pair in my regular size. Short and Petite sizes are usually too short for me. To my surprise, the legs were way, way too long and I got overheated within an hour of putting them on. Foolishly, I ascribed the heat to the too-long legs and ordered a Short pair instead. They were the right length, but still WAY TOO HOT. I literally just had to go home on my lunch and change pants because I was so miserable. You could probably wear these in a chilly office or something, at a job where you aren't moving around a lot, but for retail or foodservice? Absolutely not. I don't know how they managed to make 100% cotton so hot. It's like a wearable oven. You could wear these things and nothing else in the Arctic and be fine.
OK, I have two other pairs of Lee khakis and love them. So I splurged and bought these. I thought I bought the same style but maybe not close enough. These are positively HUGE. Waist fits great but the legs (what, these are straight leg?), length (short? don't think so), and hips are gigantic. I could fit my dogs in there. I am really disappointed. Since I am already wearing them today, will have to keep them and toss into the wash on HOT, dryer on HOT. Then, pull out my sewing machine and start altering this weekend. Like I said, quality is great --- sizing is WAY WAY off.
