Women's Fit 2 5-pocket Colored Denim Slim Ankle Jeans
Not perfect... but close!
Took a chance and ordered these despite some of the less than glowing reviews, and I'm glad I did! I'm a 5ft tall, size 4 mom, and I ordered these in umber (great color) in both size 4 petite, and size 2 regular. Fit at waist and hips was similar in both, but I kept the 2 reg, as they are full length jeans on me. I agree with others that they would be more flattering if they were a little more tapered from knee to ankle, but to compensate for the straight lower leg, I wear with pointed flats or heels, which give the illusion of a more narrow leg. The waist seemed a bit high at first, but after a couple of washings, they fit a little lower on the hips. All in all, I really like the way these fit, and will probably order a pair in the 4 petite in a different color to wear as a crop jean for spring and summer.

Fit great, definitely NOT skinny jean proportions...
Read the other reviews and decided to give these a try anyway. They are proportioned like straight jeans though the photograph makes them appear to be skinny jeans. Contrary to other comments, these jeans have a great quality feel though they're not the super stretchy fabric. I LOVE the fit of them, and at 5'9" tall, the Tall version is perfect for me...just right. I liked them so much I ordered two more pair and can't wait to get them. For my build and proportions they are fabulous at any price, but on sale what a deal!!!

What is being said about these pants is true.
I buy most of my clothes from Land's End. I'm going to have to send these back. The legs and hips are good but the tummy and waist feel like I'm wearing guy pants. It's like they were cut "straight waist" AND "straight leg". If I wore a loose tunic length shirt, these might work....but I don't want to. LE please taper these in at the waist and please eliminate the tummy pucker and I'll buy one in almost every color.

Not for fuller figure
I purchased two pairs of these jeans and I am not happy with the fit.
I promptly returned them. I am very dissatisfied that Lands End
no longer carries the classic fit straight leg jeans. They were a staple
In my wardrobe for many years.

These colored jeans are a great color but unfortunately both fabric and fit are not as pictured.
Normally I wear a LE size 12 regular in pants, which especially in prior years' slim-leg cords have been great.
Flattering, stretchy and comfortable. However,these jeans fit "awkwardly" by which I mean, they are not as pictured on website or in print brochure.
While the colors I ordered Deep Brown and Sierra Coral are lovely, the denim fabric is coarse or feels coarsely woven and not at all stretchy or clingy in a flattering way. Instead the pants fit like baggy, somewhat shapeless slacks, neither form fitting or even flattering jeans. The shape from hip to knee is not as pictured
but very baggy. Unlike with LE cords, for me fit 1 and 2 where the softness of the fabric allows pants to mold to the body, these colored denims are not
"wearer friendly" or flattering. BOth fabric and fit need work from LE designers.
Perhaps more stretch and some blend to soften the cotton denim?
WHile I need the 12 (20 years after 3 babies!) to fit my waist, the hips thighs and behind
all are way too baggy.
Washing and drying doesn't help with this coarse fabric either.
As well, this coarse weave of the denim also makes the pants feel scratchy next to the skin. Though I'm only 5ft 5 and wear a LE size 12 regular comfortably, overall these fit me better in the tall which gives the legs a leaner look in this stiff shapeless pant/slack.
I wish they worked. I love the colors. I suggest LE caters to post 30 something??? baby boomers and starts to come back with higher rise
(true fit 2, JUST below belly button) that holds in the belly but clings to t he behind? ATt 60 plus I still want to look stylish and fit...not the 7 day trouser look?LE already has canvas for younger women, so how about their moms?

Fit is off
Im a fit 2 girl, the hips fit decently in these but the waist was far too big. It did not taper in a bit from the waist to the hip it seems. Also the pockets could have been placed to be more flattering than they are.

Cute and comfortable, color a bit off
Super cute and comfortable jeans. I love the crop look. The size seems true, but the Sierra Coral color is more like fire engine red. I just may have to buy other colors!
