Men's Comfort Waist 5-pocket Denim Jeans
Poor Quality Control
I ordered these for my husband six months ago and they were a perfect fit. I recently reordered him another pair, same size and inseam. When he tried them on they were too short in the rise. We measured them against the previous pair and the rise was almost 2 inches shorter. Needless to say they were returned. I am seeing a lot of complaints on this site for a number of products that indicate sizing is not consistent. Living in Canada I can't return items for free and so it costs me $7.95 because of L.E.'s poor quality control. We used to be able to depend on L.E. for sizing and quality garments I hope L.E. is going to address this issue with their suppliers.

Several "posts" indicated the "white elastic" showed when extended.. Apparently that has been remedied; the white elastic on the pair I just received does not show. The white shows on the thumnail photo;however, I believe that was exagerated to show how the pants extend.

Love the feel of these pants
First time ordering these pants. After my regular jeans shrink and become uncomfortable I tend not to wear them as often as I would like. With these new comfort waist jeans, I want to wear them everyday.
I do however think I will order one size smaller in my waist then I did with the first pair. This should help with the bunching of the waist with my belt. Not worried about a little white showing! I have not notice any white showing with the jeans that I am wearing now. I will see if this is the case with the smaller size.

Stretch waist ban shows white.
The stretch waist band shows white in the pockets when stretched. I should have read the reviews before ordering. Looks very bad- why they did this ....?

Too short through the crotch
I have purchased several pairs of these pants since they were brought out by Lands End. I have purchased several colors, as well. The latest ones fit fine in the waist and leg, but were cut too short through the crotch area. It made for discomfort while sitting. It's bearable, but not ideal. If the same thing happens with the next pair I buy, I'll have to start looking for another company.

WHITE WAISTBAND HAS TO GO!!
I returned these - the white waist band is unacceptable! You can actually view it in the product thumbnails on the product page (ok, so I wasn't paying attention when I ordered them.). It shows with the slightest bit of stretch. Even if you wear a belt to hide the waist band, the white still shows in a portion of the pocket! This isn't a problem with the comfort waist twills, or lined jeans, so I wonder why they chose this ridiculous design for the regular comfort waist jeans. I mean, really - how much money did they save substituting white cotton for this little piece of denim in a pair of $54 imported jeans? Was it worth it to lose customers? The only way you will like these jeans is if you never tuck your shirt in.

Great pair of very comfortable jeans
I received my jeans as a gift and was surprised at the expansion capability of the sidebands. At first, I wasn't so sure I liked the idea, but after somewhat regularly bouncing up & down in weight 10 - 15 pounds depending on my level of activity, I began to appreciate these jeans very much. They are extremely comfortable, fit well, and, thus far, wear well, too.

Poor stiching on my last order.....
I have purchased these Jeans in the past and was very happy with the quality and fit. However on my last purchase, the stiching on the belt loops and the inseam have let go and come undone after only a few weeks. $55.00 for this type of quality is unacceptable in my view. I'm thinking Lands End may have changed the Vender for a lower cost for production?
I like the fit, but I am VERY leary to reorder without actually seeing the product.

This Blue Jean is High Quality & has Great Color.
Lands End makes high quality blue jeans. I wish they would also make jeans in a lighter, summer-weight material (hint, hint).
Two small complaints.
1. The Rise of the jean is not stated, and unfortunately it runs tight.
2. If you move up 1 waist size there is an increase in the rise.
However, Lands End does not automatically compensate for the longer rise by reducing the leg length. It's up to the customer to make his best guess. Obviously this should only be a problem the first time you order each product.

The only jeans my husband will wear.
These are the best jeans we have found and my husband must own 10+ pair. Very well made and the dark vintage color is perfect. The only problem with the jeans was the inside of the front pocket, which is white/grey cotton fabric would show due to the comfort waist. This issue seems to have been worked out. We just ordered and this time this was not an issue. Thanks to the design change!!
