Boys' Classic Fit Iron Knee® Jeans
My son has a few pairs of these jeans. It's very hard to find jeans that fit skinny teenagers. Mens jeans are too big and boys jeans are too small. These jeans are the exception. Great adjustable fit for my son.

They fit my tall, skinny son!
My 14-year old son is 5'7", but really really thin (107 lbs). He needs a men's jean for the length, but a boy's jean for the waist. Have had an impossible time finding pants that fit this description and have had to get men's jeans altered in the waist at a cost of $20!
These 20 slims are still quite loose on his waist, but somewhat manageable with the "magic" waist-band buttons. The quality of the jeans seems quite good, and I think these will last us for some time to come.
Thanks, Lands End, for continuing to offer slims even for older boys!

Best jeans for boys.
If you have an active boy, these are the best jeans you can buy. Period.
The denim breaks in soft for a custom fit. The knees last a long time - not forever, but a heck of a lot longer than any other pair we have, and we've tried them all. They are a good fit, not too roomy to get in his way and not too skinny to slow him down.
What else can I say?

Great fit for long legged boy!
We have had such a hard time finding a jean that fits my skinny long legged boy. We bought the 14 slim and they fit perfectly, he even has a bit of room to grow. Love the reinforced knee. Great jeans. Quick shipping to Canada and love that all duties and fees are included at checkout, makes for easy cross border shopping!

After sewing many patches on my little boy's jeans, after only one or two initial wearings, I was desperate to find jeans that wouldn't wear through the knees as easily. I ran across a blog that listed jeans that moms reported to be tough and durable. Iron Knee jeans were among the highest rated jeans, and now I know why. They are very high quality denim, but not so stiff that my little guy has complained about them rubbing, as he has done with my sewn in patches in the past. As an added bonus, I was ecstatic to find that the slim fit really is slim!!! I didn't even have to cinch up the adjustable bands on each side!! Extra bonus, they are longer than the same size in the other brands of jeans that we have, about 2 inches longer, so we'll get to wear them longer for two reasons! I've already told all of my friends with boys about these marvels, especially the ones with skinny boys. Thank you Lands End for coming to this mama's rescue!!

I bought two pairs of these jeans for my 8yr old son. He is slim, and the slim, but not skinny, fit is great! I was hoping that the knees would last longer -since they are reinforced- than other brands. My son is not overly hard on his pants, he is just a normal boy. The problem seems to lie in the quality and durability of the denim fabric. They are fairly lightweight pants and it was only 3.5 months before the fabric started to wear out. True, the reinforcement patches did hold the knees together longer, but it remains that he has ratty looking knees, and who wants that?? So now, after 6 months, because of the patches, there still aren't gaping vents at the knees, but the denim has worn clear through. Even on sale, these pants are not a good value. I wish it were a different story!

I was really hopeful....
When I saw "Iron Knee" and read the reviews I was really hopeful these jeans would last longer than previous pairs of non-LE type jeans. Sadly, that is not the case - in roughly five months of wear my 6 year old son has his second hole in his second pair in the same place. I sent the first pair back thinking it just had to be a fluke, but this second one means I won't be buying these anymore, because they are far too pricey to be wearing out this soon. The fit and wash are great, but not enough for me to justify $30 a pop.

Nice looking jeans- lasts longer than other brands
I have tried to get pants the "easy" way, simply trotting over to the big box stores and picking up a pair. EVERYTIME I end up going back. My son will wear the pants ONCE and put a hole in them. Sometimes it's the seams that are weak, sometimes it's simply the fabric. Honestly, the other stores pants are almost as or just as expensive, and I am fed up with them coming apart so quickly, and scolding my son for simply playing. The LE jeans are great. They look sharp enough to wear to school for dress down days, and thus far, lasted more than three wears, so we're already ahead of the other brands we've tried. Bravo LE, you've done it again. Returning to the motto that you build something to last is a much better business model then building something made to break. I will buy LE items ten times over and I tell all my friends how great the items are. Our younger son #11 years younger# is wearing items I have saved from the elder, and they still look classic.

Great jean, great quality
These are high quality jeans with an adjustable waist. I would definitely recommend them, and I will be buying them again for my three boys.
