I've worn these jeans for 30 years (under both the Lees name and the Lee Ryder name) and will continue to buy them. The only knock is that Lees discontinued making the same jean in a 70/30 blend (cotton/poly). That blend was considerably more comfortable even if slightly less durable. I've got 2 pairs of the 70/30 left and I literally ration the time and occasions I wear them. Maybe Lee will someday bring the 70/30 blend back but until then I'll have to settle for the 80/20.
I have very short legs so I have to shorten but that's OK. These are regular fit and my legs are a little thin so they appear a little large. I love the stretch jeans since they ar lighter and more comfortable than regular jeans but I wish they you made slim jeans in stretch. I used to buy and loved Basic Additions Stretch jeans but they stopped making them in sizes under 34" waist. Very disappointing.
I've bought these jeans for years but the last bunch I bought even though labeled the same are a very heavy/hard material now, not a soft material at all, and are not stretch at all either. What I received were very uncomfortable jeans and the length is also too long now. Too bad, I've loved these jeans for years but will not buy them anymore.

Love the jeans, always feel comfortable, wear them mostly for casual and when start to show wear, I turn them into around home jeans and order new ones. Don't know when they changed the material from 70/30 to 80/20 (cotton/polyester) which may have changed the fit some, but I'm still hooked on them and will continue buying. On then inseam, I always have to have them altered because they don't offer them in 28/29 length, wish they would. I don't like legs bulked up on my shoes. Adds extra cost for me to have them shortened, my only negative.
I purchases these jeans before never thought to check fabric description. Lee company sells and the fabric is 80/20 cotton poly blend. These are cotton and only 2% other fabric. They feel limp and thin not like the others I had purchased from your company. Are these really Lee stretch jeans?
