Rated 5 out of 5 by Homeschoolmom2 Comfortable and a great fit
I have been purchasing Double L traditional jeans for a number of years. Even though I am 5"3' (120 pounds), I buy the regular length because over time the jeans will shrink a little in the length. The waist is a little big but, this classic pair of jeans is a great fit for me. The denim is a nice weight, rise is perfect, and the jeans are long lasting. One request is, please bring back the black in the Double L traditional jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PreppyTraveller Make sure of your preferred cut
I have several pair of LL Bean pants that fit quite well so I didn't pay close attention to the cut of these jeans. Long story short--I should have. These are quite tight in the waist. I've worn them a couple of times hoping they will stretch like all cotton jeans tend to do. If I get the waist stretched, they will be quite nice. Compare the fit of your other pants with these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by onemarbleleft Not LL Bean quality
These jeans are far below the quality I expect from LL Bean. I've been buying jeans from this company for many years.
This pair is a much lighter material (flimsy). The waist, hips and crotch are tight and uncomfortable. Cut too low at the waist in front.
Just thoroughly dis-satisfied with this purchas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanMFB petite women's jeans
Good quality pants but the waist is bigger than the older pants of the same style I have had for years. Would be great if a size 2 petite was available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BrightonBeach why must we settle
I wish the traditional jeans came in dark denim blue. I wish the waists were bigger, too. This purchase was for a smaller size than previous purchases due to weight loss, but even at size 4 my waist is not what it was when I was 20 and weighed the same as now. No young person wears these jeans, so I think LLBean could reasonably make the waists a bit larger in all the sizes. As before, I buy these jeans because there really are no alternatives for me, but why must I settle for less than ideal jeans? With all that, these are almost perfect jeans - good pockets, nicely made, launder well, and feel comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by malenkya Good plain thankfully unembellished jeans
I guess "Traditional" means "they fit," because these do, very nicely. I'm 5'5", with a little more weight than I'd like around the waist and belly, and so-called "modern fit" jeans are far too short in the rise for me -- the button-waistband apparatus sticks out from my widest point most unappealingly. These Traddies (you don't mind if I nickname them, do you?) button above the bulge, feel comfortably snug (but I can breathe, which is a good thing) and look quite trim. No need for the extra bulk of an elastic waist. They are a bit long but I expect they'll shrink a but little in length with washing, as most jeans seem to. The only thing I'm not wild about are the legs, which I wish were somewhat narrower. They do have a slight taper, but more would be better. But overall -- nice classic workhorse jeans with clean lines and no junky embellishment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tova Great jeans, wrong size
The jeans are wonderful. One of the features I like are the large, deep pockets. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong size, so they were too small. I think they might run small because I ordered a size I wear in most pants but they were way too tight. I probably need two sizes larger. The regular was too long for me, although that's my usual length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lfct5 Comfortable and they fit !
I ordered three different pair of LLBean jeans, all the same size, and this pair was the pair that I kept. They fit me just right and I really like having a pair of 100% cotton denim jeans. I have a hard time finding pants that fit because of my big waist and small hips - I am pretty straight through my middle. I ordered the inseam to be petite since I am 5'2" with short legs and the length was perfect, too.
