Quacker Factory "DreamJeannes" Tall 5 Pocket Knit Denim Boot Cut Pants
These jeans were my first purchase of "DreamJeannes" after looking at Quacker Factory for some time and was rather disappointed in the fit and fabric- I sized down to a small (usually wear size 10) - the jeans were still too large, especially in the leg, and the fabric was not what I expected. I ordered the indigo hoping to wear them to work but fabric was quite washed out so, back they went - not sure that I would order this brand again since it gets expensive having to pay return postage - oh, well.
Wear out too quickly
I wore these pants about 2-3 times a week for about one month. Holes developed around the back pocket. They also faded very quickly even though I wash them inside out in cold water on gentle cycle. The sizing was fine, I ordered my same size but they do tend to stretch out a lot when wearing. I stopped wearing them.
Holes above back pocket after only 6 months
I like these jeans and find the fit and style very nice. I've worn them a good deal in the 6 months I've owned them. I wash on gentle and never put them in the dryer and I don't stuff the back pockets with anything. When I went to hang up a pair to dry I could not believe there were small holes - about the size of a pinto bean - above the back pocket seams on both back pockets. So now I will have to mend the holes and hope I can do a good enough job that the mend won't be visible. If the fabric has failed then mending will only develop other holes above the mend. I have never in my 60+ years ever had a pair of jeans develop holes in the fabric. I wear my pants on the loose side as I don't like tight pants so I didn't explode out of these pants and over stretch them. Yes, I realize these are not a true denim but the price of these pants are high IMO and with the gentle care I have given them they should not be developing holes in the fabric. I think the holes developed at stress points where the fabric is pulling between the top of the pocket seams and the waist band. So these might be Dream Jeannes in fit and comfort but don't expect them to last over 6 months if you wear them several times a week. Very disappointed in such pricey jeans. I will look else where for similar fabric jeans.
I originally ordered these in a size 14 tall in white. The fit is wonderful, the length is longer than the typical tall pant. I was very impressed by them and wanted to order another pair. I ordered the size 14 tall in black. However, the black pair was 3 inches shorter in the leg length than the white pair. I am wondering if a size 14 regular was tagged with a size 14 tall tag. However, these are great pants and I will order more of not only the tall size but also the Capri and perhaps even the shorts. I do recommend these highly.
I'm 5-10 and large in the waist. . These look and fit good. I took the advice to buy a size smaller than usual. So stretchy and comfortable (feel like pajama bottoms) I will wear them when I travel on a plane. The blue color is nice and bright. I plan to order more colors.
Not Boot cut!!!
These were suppose to be Boot cut not so, more like wide leg. Not flattering.
Returned same day received.
Sold in spring, but can't wear them till winter
I ordered these without doing my usual "checking it out" first. I expected that I could wear these all spring. The fabric is one that should only be sold for late fall & winter, NOT spring. It's far to heavy for anything else. This fabric, which was mentioned as "exclusive" to the brand is one used on another pr. of pants that I bought for use last year. I wear it in the colder months and it's fine for that.
I bought the pink, which is a color I like for spring, but since they are of this heavy material, I won't be wearing them any time soon. Maybe for going to a theater for a movie, as they keep the A/C very cold.
I like the color. It's hard to find a light pink in pants. There are only deep pink pants out in the market. Because of the color, I'm giving them 1 star.
I have been ordering "dream jeannes" for about five years. I have noticed that in the back seat of the pants the white inside is showing through. Also, small holes are appearing in the seat area. I can not wear most of them in public anymore unless they are brand new.
I have ordered a few different colors. Washed as the tag said, hung to dry etc. But I have a problem with the waistband showing small bits of the elastic. They look worn out. I love these, but if you order them, be warned. I have brown black and green, THEY ALL HAVE THIS ISSUE.
If you say they are make of Denim then they need to be denim. I hate how they are made legs are way to big.
I'm at the age now where the Lee or Levi denim jeans just don't seem appropriate for me; however, I received the DreamJeannes 5-Pocket Knit Denim Boot Cut Pants yesterday and am wearing them today. They are sooo comfortable and look so nice. I ordered the Tall to wear with the higher heel. Am going to order regular for flat shoes. I'm 5'7" and must wear a 2" heel to wear these tall jeans properly without dragging on floor. Love them, love them. Am going to order more today!
I really love these pants, as I have with all pants I've ordered from QF, but had to return them because even after washing and drying them they were still too big. Reordering in smaller size. Because of the stretch, you may want to go down a size. Just can't go wrong with DreamJeannes!!!
