Women's Fit 3 High Rise Straight Leg All-cotton Jeans - Medium Wash
I have searched for ONE YEAR for a pair of jeans that would fit properly and look good on me after my last pair of good fitting jeans gave out. Name a company -- I have bought their jeans. I have bought jeans" for well over $100. They all looked and fit awful.
I am 5'4" and 115 pounds, 62 years old. I have a classic "hourglass" figure with small waist, and "D" size bust and relatively wide hips. It shouldn't be THAT hard to find something that fits me that I look good in, right? WRONG!! All jeans now are cut "low rise" (which might be OK if they weren't mostly spandex, which causes them to bunch up and pull downwards when they aren't anchored around your waist). They all fit your legs like leggings (including some expensive jeans that make a big point of claiming that they don't). I don't want industrial strength farmer jeans. I want nice, relatively thin, jeans that don't cling to me like saran wrap, but don't hang like a bag and which actually come up to my waist and (this is the big one) FIT my waist -- as opposed to have a two inch gap.
These do. I am in heaven!! I just ordered 5 more! (Size 4, length 30). As far as the pockets the only thing I'm going to put in my pants pocket is a credit card or a hotel room key or the like and these will slip into the back pocket just fine. Having a big bulky front pocket (or putting a big bulky object in the front pocket) would totally spoil the flat fit and appearance. That's what your purse is for.

The pants were baggy in the back. I'm 5'8" and they were too long for me.

Glad they're back
I have been wearing Lands' End jeans for many years. I was at a loss when they stopped selling Fit 3 jeans a couple of years ago (though I did feel it was time for the tapered legs to go). I bought other brands in the interim, even though none of them fit well. But now my favorites are back, and finally I have new jeans that fit me well, are comfortable, and come in the length I need. Like other reviewers, I wish the pockets weren't quite so shallow, and I hope they make other colors available in all cotton (starting with black). But I'm just glad to have them back! Now I can get rid of those gap-waisted, feel-like-they're-falling-off, too-short other brand jeans that I bought over the last couple of years. I won't be wearing them any more.

Still on my quest for a good old fashioned jean like they use to make!
Very light weight flimsy denim. Not a true jean fabric. Color is not a medium wash it's definitely a dark indigo which I do not like. Don't even like medium wash but these are not available in a stone wash. And pockets ... where are the front pockets? Exactly what do the designers think you could fit into a pocket so small? Lands End use to have such great jeans but that was years ago. I'll continue to wear my 5+ year old the Lands End jeans until thread bare. These are going back and my quest continues for decent jeans like they use to make years ago.

Jeans run small
The jeans were a little tight. They were "wearable" as we all know how jeans stretch with wear. Sadly, I discarded the receipt after trying them on. Several days later, Following the directions, I washed them in cold water, inside out and line dried them. Again several days passed before I put them on......They seemed to have shrunk 2 sizes!! sad moment for me. Lucky for the folks at the local second hand store that basically received a brand new pair of jeans.

Consistent quality and durability
I like how these jeans fit at the waist and how I can get them in the length I need (32"). I can wear them to work year-round.

Too short in back- too long in front
Too short and revealing in back- too long in front, coming up to bra.

I returned these because they don't have spandex in the fabric.
I bought a pair of jeans in the dark wash about 6 weeks ago and they are fabulous! So, I ordered these, because I wanted a second pair of jeans and in a different color. When they arrived I found out this denim does not have spandex, which to me makes the pants much more comfortable. Need to read this website carefully, unlike T-necks that are one style and 14 colors, apparently jeans each have their own separate style number. Disappointing. So hard to even find Fit3 styles any season of the year.

Love these jeans. Exactly as advertised.
The jeans fit perfectly and I am sure I will purchase more in some of the other colors. Next time, though I must remember to have them hemmed a little longer. I am so glad I found the perfect jeans - at last.

I love the feel and fit and they are cotton.
I wear these all the time. The denim could be a little heavier and I am disappointed in the pockets. I cannot even get my cell phone in them; they are not deep enough.
