Men's Traditional Fit Jeans
Great fitting jeans. Overall excellent construction
Probably the best fitting jeans I've bought in years. LE seems to have improved the fit of the regular fit jeans. Not baggy, just the right amount of taper. And definitely not tight fitting skinny jeans that teens wear. Great material, definitely heavier than the regular $49 jeans. Rise is just right, doesn't go up to your navel. Only slightly negative is that the front pockets are tight, an issue I have with other LE jeans, and the waist seems slightly smaller than the stated 31 inch size. However still fits fine. I'm also not crazy about the larger patch on the back, I personally like the previous smaller ones.
Thankfully they don't have those stupid streaks and horizontal fade lines on front like other jeans do. Make these in more colors and rinses and I'll probably buy more.

I wish they would have warned me about the bleeding. These jeans dry-bled onto my shoes, socks, and underwear in a way I've never experienced with jeans before, and I'm fairly certain I've had rinses near this dark before without that problem. Apparently some people like jeans to be this way so that they can easily develop a personalized faded look. I myself would prefer my jeans to be at least colorfast enough that my other garments are safe.
I bought these jeans because it's hard for me to find 33x36 in a dark rinse, but under the circumstances, I will probably go back to what I was wearing, which will cost me less anyway. Other than the bleeding issue, the material is of good quality and the look is clean, just as the description states. I wish the rise were slightly longer, but that's about it. They were tight on me at first, but broke-in to the right size after a little use.

Jeans look good and fit perfectly
I'm very happy with the quality. The jeans are accurately described in the catalog & online. They look great with a nice wide leather belt. I'd recommend them and I'm planning on buying a couple more pairs.

Great fitting jeans. Overall excellent construction. Love the denim cloth.
These are the best fitting jeans I have bought in years. Not baggy, not skinny jeans. Nice subtle taper to the legs.The rise is just right, doesn't go up to your navel. They don't have the stupid horizontal wear marks over the front pockets like you see on some other jeans. And the denim used is more substantial than that of most other jeans. Cons: the front pockets are a little small, an issue I have had with other LE jeans. Also the waist is slightly smaller than the stated 31 inch size, but still fit well. Neither of these problems is a deal breaker, and if LE offers more choices in washes and colors I will definitely by them again.

Awesome deep color
I already have several pairs of the regular color traditional fit 5 pocket jeans. I bought one pair of these deep color jeans and they are immediately my favorite pair, both for the color and for the fit which seems to sit slightly higher on my waist line than the regular color jeans which I prefer. I am not crazy about the price which is why I waited for a 30% off sale before trying them, but I am glad I did. I will probably buy a 2nd pair when it is marked down 30% again.

Like the dark color
Had to exchange for larger size. Made in different country again and sizes run smaller.
Still wear same size from other manufactures. Would buy again, like the product.

Decent quality for the price
I wish they were a little lower rise but they fit well enough. The straight leg style had a better rise but was too big in the hip for me. For some reason they leave about 2" of material to the left of the button which is annoying because the excess material tends to drop and needs to be pulled up every now and then. Nice dark wash and good weight. Would be nice if they stitched something on the back pockets to give it less of a no name look. A few simple design fixes and they'd have a great product but it's okay as is. Let's face it, where else am I going to find a pair of 31-36 jeans without having them tailor made.

The fit of these jeans is OK. I do miss the longer rise that was previously available.
The main problem is that these jeans have faded unevenly after one wash. There are noticeable lines in different parts of the pants. Too bad as the material itself is quite good.

Waist too small
If updating the fit means reducing the waist It does not work for me. I like these jeans except for the fact that I ordered my usual waist size and the are so tight after washing I can not tuck in a shirt. I took a chance on the newer item because I liked the deeper color. I should have stayed with the older ones while I can. I thought a traditional fit in one style would be similar to traditional fit in another style (both jeans). Apparently not. I have worn Land?s End jeans almost exclusively for nigh on 20 years to be able to have them hemmed to order. The past few years I have trouble ordering ones that fit well enough to keep.
