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 normally wear size 10 to 12 (M to L) and I ordered 12, expecting these to be a bit loose based on other reviews and the description. These jeans are not as described. They are tighter than skinny jeans. The material is not what is listed in the description. These do not have 2% spandex. The label says 1%, but I would be surprised if even that is true. When I put the jeans in front of me, they looked like they would fit well, but they're so stiff that I can barely get them up without hurting myself. When I finally did, they were below by belly button. These are low rise jeans, not high rise. Based on the inseam listed for the normal length, I thought these would be a bit long. They're actually a bit short and I'm only 5'4". The fly is super stiff. I couldn't zip it up when I tried on the pants. I took the pants off and tried again - it was still difficult to zip up and did not go all the way up. I broke part of my finger nail trying to get the fly working - I got it a bit better, but not good enough to wear. The inner label was also faded and slightly ripped when the product arrived. I expected better from this company. These jeans are too stiff to wear and the sizing is smaller than it should be especially considering how stiff these are.
This Lee jean was the worst fit of any Lee jeans I've worn in the past! And I have worn Lee jeans for 30 years. I couldn't even zip them up & the button was so tight, couldn't button it even when not wearing. Now, you could say they claim to be "instantly slimming", so what did I expect? Well, I stopped wearing girdles a long time ago & this jean felt tighter than that (couldn't take a deep breath or sit in them)! I also bought this same jean in black at the same time. They are a perfect fit, & sometimes black jeans run a little smaller in the same style. The thing I've learned about Lee jeans is, if you find a pair that you love, run, don't walk, back to the merchant & by 6 more pairs! You will never find that same style again. Edit: Got these in Inspire Blue & tag says "Made in Egypt". The same style in black says "Made in Mexico". The 2 pairs of "Midrise Straight" jeans in faded blue I bought 2 years ago (I loved & they're discontinued) came from Egypt & China! The pair from Egypt still look good. The pair from China had faded unevenly & stretched up another size! Went to the trash. Check your tags for "Made in"!
5'7" 135lbs, size 10 was a perfect fit and perfect length, made me so happy. But the chemical smell was HORRIBLE!! Washed and dried - still smelled bad. Hung outside in the sunshine 9am to 5pm - still smelled bad. Soaked overnight 7pm to 9am in the washer with 1 pound of baking soda and 2 scoops of oxy, then washed and dried - STILL SMELLED BAD!!! Gave up - sending them back. So disappointed. Dare not try another of the same, even tho the fit was wonderful for me. Very Sad :(
UPDATE: ordered 2 pair March 2022, size 12 regular which should have 31" inseam. What arrived (separately from different parts of the country) were each size 12 but 29" inseam - so they were "short" but tagged "regular". Thankfully it will be warmer weather soon, because my ankles feel the breeze but they look cute with sneakers. On the plus side, these did not have the awful chemical smell that the previous order had. However: lesson learned - I will only buy them directly from Lee from now on, as that way I will receive the correct size and length. Think I will put these in my "DO NOT BUY again" list in case I forget. ;) Happy Springtime, y'all!
I can’t get this damn chemical smell out of these jeans. I haven’t even had a chance to try them on. I just want the smell out! This is my 5th time pouring detergent all over them and washing with a second rinse and drying and the smell still won’t escape. I never believed a review that complained of a chemical smell bc I’ve just never smelt it on any of my clothes I’ve ordered, but now I finally understand what everyone is talking about. This smell is horrible, I can’t even put the jeans on.
I got these for work pants thinking they were a khaki color. I guess the color on my iPhone is a little off. Not really their fault. However, these pants are ugly. The cut is ugly. They are not flattering at all and they make me feel like an old woman. I’m only 30! They are so very ugly. The ankles are wide, and they feel like bellbottoms. I know it’s a straight leg but I feel like they flare out. So very very very ugly. It’s way too short to. So not only are they bellbottoms, but they’re also capris when I sit down. Gross. They’re not flattering on my butt, and I have a very nice butt. I can’t return them because it has been three days past my 30 days! So I’m stuck with these god awful pants. Probably going to donate them but I don’t know. I wouldn’t wish these pants on my worst enemy let alone some nice person looking for pants at a thrift store. by the way, I got the palisades color and it’s not exactly khaki color.
I was excited to see that I could order my favorite jeans online and at a good price. They arrived on time and were sealed in a plastic bag inside the packaging envelope. Upon opening the plastic bag I was hit with an odor so strong I thought I had opened a can of garbage. It’s a bizarre chemical stink. I assumed that this odor was due to the jeans being wrapped in the plastic. I washed these jeans twice and then dried them and they still smell horribly. I would not wear these if you paid me. I have no idea what could be on these jeans that is making them smell so bad after two washings. I hope I am allowed to go through with my return since I cannot find any of the tags. I tore them off before I washed them. I did this because I assumed the foul odor would disappear with the washings. I was wrong.
I will never order these pants again! They were delivered today with a mailing label just stuck on the pants! NEVER in my life have I seen this done before! I do not want everyone in the world to know what pants I bought and what size I wear. I am beyond angry! So if you want these pants consider yourself forewarned....
