Rated 4 out of 5 Nice pants, just may need next size up
These pants are great fabric, nice style (more like those of 5+ years ago, finally!). A little tight in the pocket area but otherwise great. LL Bean makes the only khakis that fit me nicely at all, so I'm grateful for them!
However, they do run small. I've always been a size 10 in LL Bean pants but had to order a 12 in these. Measured them against my "classic fit" size 10 pants that I still wear from a few year ago, and the waist and hip measurements of the new 12s are identical to the old 10s. Strange, but otherwise, thumbs up on these pants (and I'm ordering more).

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaryS910 Waist size has changed, order larger!
I have been buying LLBean pants for years. After reading the reviews, I ordered a size larger than I usually wear. Imagine my surprise when I could not even button them! I got out the tape measure and the waist on them is identical to a pair I have that the label says is a size smaller. I wonder what is going on, whether they are mislabeling pants or they have changed their sizes and just have not updated the measurements on the website or what. LLBean Khakis have been my 'go to' pants for years and now I have to send them back. Very disappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TallCanadian AAHH! Above-The-Waist Pants!!
These pants fit perfectly! I purchased the tall and they were longer than I expected (I would not have minded an extra inch).
The fit above the waist is nice (I so miss that).
These pants are very flexible and can be used anywhere!!
Thanks, LL Bean!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TTfriend In the same boat as others
I want to love these pants. They are a nice traditional fabric and the price is very good. On me, these pants fit in the waist, which was nice because there is no gap. However, the pant legs around the thigh are way to loose. So they are too large on the bottom for someone whose waist fits, and it sounds like for those needing a little more room in the legs, that the waist is way too tight. Unfortuanately there seems to be a proportional disconnect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cliftongirl Bayside Twill pants-original fit
Perhaps because I've added a few inches to my waistline the pants were too tight. I had to end up returning it. When I get back in shape, I will want to buy these pants as they are very comfortable to wear and the fabric is soft.

6P was perfect. I have worn these pants to work for years. Glad LLBean has gone back to the original styling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cat1953 Waist band is way too small for size
Unfortunately, LL Bean has stopped carrying my favourite khaki cotton pants which I loved (O XK54). These are a poor substitute because of the poor fit. The waist band for these pants is easily one to two inches smaller than the same size in the other style. I purchased three pairs of these but they were so uncomfortable I stopped waring them and they ended up in the donation bin. Be careful when you buy these and be sure to try them on immediately. You may have to send them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ydnas great fit.
I ordered an 8P. I still had to hem them up an inch, but I am so thrilled that regular waisted pants are coming back.

Although I ordered the size I usually wear, the pants were way too tight. I'm not sure an 18 would have fit. In most clothes, I wear a 14 but did order a 16 in these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great traveling companion
I bought a single black pair of Bayside Twills for a two-month journey through Greece. They were remarkable. Washed out in the sink, dried pretty quickly and looked almost as if they'd been pressed after hanging on a hotel railing. They did everything from hiking to opera. I wore them almost every day of my trip and they came home looking great. Would highly recommend them.
