Great Lee Jeans!
on November 20, 2013
Lees Jeans are great! I used to be a Levi's guy for years, but when their prices skyrocketed I switched over to Lee. I like the way Lee Jeans fit. They are very comfortable, and soft. Although they do fit a bit on the slim side. The 36w x 34L (regular fit) Lee Jeans I just ordered fit about like my old 34w x 34L (Relaxed Fit) jeans did. I would recommend ordering the regular fit jeans at least 1 size larger than what you normally wear (unless you are looking for that "skinny jeans" look). Even though they are prewashed, they still shrink a little each time you wash them. However, they do stretch after wearing them for a while. Just don't wash them every time you wear them, and they will fit a lot better, and last a lot longer. The relaxed fit jeans are pretty true to size, but have a lot more room in the crotch area, so they are a little more comfortable, if they are on small size (guys, you know what I mean). While no jeans are made of the thick durable cotton of days-gone-by, anymore. These jeans hold up very well, and hold their color for a long time. When I purchase new jeans, I first wash them in cold water, and 1 cup of white vinegar. This sets the manufacturing dye, and makes the color last longer before they fade. It is an old trick my Grandmother taught me when I was a kid (think Easter Eggs). Don't forget to wash them again after the vinegar treatment, or you will smell like a Caesar Salad all day....lol. These are very good Jeans for the money, and I would recommend them to anyone. I would also like to thank Amazon for the super fast shipping. The Jeans arrived 2 days before my estimated arrival date, and I ordered 4 pairs of jeans & new socks.
