Rated 5 out of 5áby TexasLu Traditional Relaxed Fit
Love these jeans. I buy MT because I like them long. Also, they are all cotton -- no spandex. I hate spandex...it's too form fitting and is hot, and material is flimsy. Bean's double L is true to size and very comfy. Also, the fabric is substantial enough where they don't bag out. Will order another pair. Best part is they are long enough in the stride to be comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5áby frequentjeanswearer good material, strange fit
I was looking for jeans made of heavyweight, non-stretch denim suitable for Montana winters; jeans that fit at the natural waist and didn't have rhinestones, embroidery, flaps, etc. on the back pockets. These jeans meet the denim and glitz-free pockets specs but not the fit. They would be a lot more comfortable if the high-rise waistband didn't hit me in the ribs. They are described as "fitted through the hips and thighs." They aren't on me -- there's a lot of excess material flapping around. Finally, they are a little short. I'll keep them because of the fabric, but I won't buy another pair. I might recommend them to a friend who's built differently than me.

Rated 4 out of 5áby spiritfilledjill Thank you! Normal jeans again!
I wore LL Bean Classic jeans for years.... then as so often happens with an item I'm in love with, they stopped making them, seems like 8 years ago or more. I wear jeans every day, so mine had become quite tattered! Disappointed in the other LL Bean jean styles, I began a years-long, unsuccessful quest to find non-skinny, non-low-rise, classic, "normal" jeans. You know, normal jeans. Zipper longer than 2 inches. Comes up to the waist. Fine, call them mom jeans, I don't care.... I'm 50, fit, and these are just normal jeans to me. The rumors of mom jeans coming back in style didn't help my quest much, because most of the high rise jeans I find are 'skinny'. I want 'normal'.... appropriate for work, play, church, wherever I go.
Anyway, I'm so glad I looked on Bean again, and gave these a try. They are ALMOST like the old Classics! Now to order 10 pairs to stash in my closet, because they will probably stop making these tomorrow afternoon..... ha!
I should say that I'm 5'1" and about 107 pounds. The regular length on my old Classics always shrunk to just a bit too short, even for me, so this time I went with medium tall. Can't believe a 5'1" woman is medium tall! When I sit, they are perfect, when I stand, they are just a little bunchy on top of my shoes, but that's ok.
I got size 4 as I used to with Classics, and like those, these came a bit roomy, so I wash them in hot for a couple of washes to shrink them just a bit on purpose.
The jeans are nice and sturdy and comfy, great material as always, and they look great so far. Thanks so much!

Rated 2 out of 5áby shopper668 Not what it used to be
I always bought the "Classic" version of these jeans. They were the best. The waist was not too high and not too tight. The legs were slender but not too much so. These are too tight on the waist and the legs are too wide. I like that they are all cotton but the cut is not good. I wish LL Bean would bring back Classic jeans in dark blue and black, all cotton.

Rated 1 out of 5áby ponyne Size is too small, too long
I have worn a size 10 L.L.Bean jeans and pants for years and still wear them; just got an order last month in a 10 that is perfect. These are way too tight. Since they are 100% cotton, the length might shrink up and be okay, but the fit will be even tighter.. Will have to exchange for a 12. Now I have to send them back and pay for shipping.

LL Bean's jeans are the only jeans that are true denim. I like this style because they sit at the waist. This style fits well except for the pant leg. They're a little too big in the legs for me but I can deal with this because I like everything else about them.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Reviewer93 ALERT: Sizing on this product has changed
I have bought these jeans for at least 10 years. They are what I wear 80% of the time (I'm retired). But my most recent purchase is much smaller than any previous one. I normally buy 8's in dressier pants, but prefer a slightly looser fit in my jeans, and I do think they shrink just a little, so I always get a 10 MT. New jeans normally are a bit roomy, but a few washings get them just the way I like them. I can barely zip the new pair up, and comparing the new pair to an older, much-washed pair, I can see a distinct difference. I am beyond disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RobbieM Women's Double L Jeans, Traditional
Great fitting jeans. Wish I had ordered two pair. Have not washed them yet. Hope they do not shrink. I have a large waist and I can wear these jeans. They are a little bit tight at the waist but tolerable. I guess that my legs are a bit short, but too long to order the shorter inseam size. Good color.

Got these for my wife, who is hard to fit due to her petite frame. These jeans fit her exactly, waist, inseam and the rise. She just loved them!

Rated 5 out of 5áby ChMM Great fit
These are the only jeans that fit me. All other brands out there have the low waist, flared legs, etc. that look terrible on me and are not comfortable. I hope those LLBean Traditional will always be available!
