Quacker Factory "DreamJeannes" Regular 5Pocket Knit Denim Boot Cut Pants
I love these jeans so, so much. For me, they fit true to size, look very nice, and are oh, so comfortable. I got the dark indigo, but look forward to getting the black and charcoal grey, and perhaps the antique rose for spring. I hope Jean knew how wonderful her products are!! I sure have enjoyed them over the years.
As in other reviews, I found these jeans to be super comfortable. However, the material "fades" or "stretches" in such a way that makes them unwearable (at least in public.). I ordered them in black and the inside of the material is light gray, or white. After wearing a couple of times, the inside color shows through and looks very odd. If the material was dyed the entire way through, I think they would wear better.
I ordered 2 of these in a size 4 (1 white and 1 pink). First, very comfortable, length was fine, but no consistency with sizing in hips and waist. The white pair fit perfectly but the pink was too big. I will take the pink pair to my seamstress to see if we can take them up. The problem is, I do not know if the white pair is more of a size 2 or if the pink pair is more like a size 6 or 8. I check the tag on the inside of both pants and both tags say a size 4. When I place the jeans up next to each other to compare widths, you can clearly see a difference. I never had this issue before when I ordered the same item but in different colors. I cannot tell you if it runs true to size, smaller or larger because I do not know which one is correctly made.
I got a pair for the holidays. I was moved by the comfort mentioned on the Q so I decided to get the evergreen. I love them, very comfortable and the color is nice. It went great with the fall and xmass holiday. The only thing I will change on the next purchase is to size down as they ran a little big.
NO longer a dream here either!
I wanted these pants for some time, thought they would be nice since in colors and looked warm. I debated on them for some time and finally ordered them to wear for Christmas since they were on easy pay. I read the reviews and based on those I downsized 1 size from my regular 6 to a 4. I am NOT even sure a 2 would have fit! And you talk about stretch out oh my by the end of the day these were 2 sizes larger. NOT a good buy to me at all. And also to my surprise NOT warm at all very thin material..And washing and drying made no difference!
Love / Hate these pants
I waited a while to try these. I recently ordered several pairs. I had to send a couple pairs back because the length was several inches too long. I am 5'6"" so I can't go shorter or taller. The ones I kept I am having altered because they look like bell bottoms from the 70's.. I have ordered QF for several years but I won't be ordering any more of these. Also, on one of the shows Angel said they run big so I ordered down a size and that was also a mistake.
I waivered on ordering these for some time but finally bought a pair. They are soft, very comfortable and well made BUT why so long? I am 5'7" and cannot wear these with anything but a heel and the pants still hit the ground. Petite would be too small for me and I don't need the tall. I would love to buy more colors and recommend to friends, but the length is an issue for me. I will probably buy another pair and see if maybe the length is a better fit.
"Dream" Jeannes no longer a "Dream"
Ordered these jeans in the past and the fabric was a substantial weight and I was very happy with them. Recently ordered two more pair in black and the fabric has changed. Now very flimsy and very light weight. Even the inside is blotched with black blobs of color whereas the pants from an order in the beginning of 2014 are uniformly not colored on the inside. Very disappointed in the present quality. Now all the areas around the seams on the backside and around the back pockets are so thin the interior or reverse side of this jean material which is non-black or almost white is showing through to the outside. QF must have switched suppliers on their fabric. VERY DISAPPOINTED that I can't count on any type of quality consistency when reordering products that were originally good quality.
Why so long?
LOVE Quacker Factory, but the regular fit is so long and petite is too short. I am 5' 6" and would love to purchase numerous pairs of these jeans because of all the great color choices, but nothing fits my length. Bummer!!!
These pants really do fit like a dream. Sooooo soft and comfortable. They wash well and do not fade like other jeans I've purchased. They hold their shape and do not bag at the knees after sitting. Well worth the money. I have several colors,
Finally purchased and what was I waiting for? Very comfortable and look great. Everything Angel said about them is true. Don't wait get them home now!
