 I recently read that for clothes that smell like cig smoke, hang the item with a dryer sheet, cover in plastic (like a drycleaning bag), close it up and leave overnight.  It certainly sounds simple and won't hurt your jeans.

Hang them outside. The fresh air can knock smells out of almost anything.

Wash in vinegar. Smell will come right out.

My MIL is a heavy smoker. Like 3 packs a day. Of course she doesnt care who's around when she's smoking in the house. When I my kids visit (which not often and not for long periods of time) they always come home smelling like an ashtray. Seriously, I want to throw up from the smell. Anyway I was their clothes with some vingear in the water and I use a LOT of fabric softener. Then when I put it in the dryer I use a few dryer sheets. It works every time.

You can try baking soda in the next wash. Vinegar will work, too.

You could also put them into a box filled with crumpled up newspaper and leave them for a week.

Try using color safe bleach.
