Nobody but LL Bean seems to make "traditional" jeans like they used to--orange flat-felled seams, grommet at the waist, deep front and back pockets, and quality that'll last for years. My only negative comment is I had to get a size larger than the charts indicate because the rise is an inch shorter than some other brands, so the "classic" waistband lands somewhat below my natural waist. That's in style now, anyhow. (The ones designed that way simply fall off me). These are very flattering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BuckeyeStateShopper Please bring back the BLACK Double L jeans!
For years, the Double L black traditional fit tapered leg jeans were the only jeans I wore. They were sturdy and a great weight for fall and winter. Now LL Bean has discontinued them. I tried the True Fit black jeans but they have way too much spandex stretch for me and are so light weight they can't be worn in cold weather without long johns. PLEASE bring back the Double L Traditional Fit (fitted through hip and thigh, sits at waist, tapered legs) in BLACK!

Love, love, love these jeans. They're like the jeans of old. No spandex, no stretchy material, just good old fashioned denim jeans and a good old fashioned price to boot! The fit is great, the denim is on the heavier side and this will be my brand for jeans from now on. It doesn't get any better!

The styles of the Double L Jeans have changed in the past year or so. What is now "Traditional" used to be "Natural" and the fit is different. The waist on this style, Traditional, doesn't sit quite as high as the waist on the Natural style and the waist is now too large. I need the length of the medium tall, which I ordered, but the rise isn't quite long enough. The higher waist of the older Natural style helped some by letting the waist actually sit at my waist. So, while these are an okay fit, they are not great. The Natural was a much better fit for someone with a smaller waist and who needs longer rise.

Fit is wrong. For slim pants they are big in butt and hips and small in waist

For several years now I have been purchasing LL Bean Traditional Fit Jeans ~ only jeans that actually fit my shape. Too bad LL Bean discontinued the stretch jean fabric - that was even better.

These jeans fit perfectly, they come in great colors,good deep flat pockets and are a really nice quality heavy denim material.. Once these soften up a little, I wont miss my old worn out jeans anymore

Rated 4 out of 5 by TeriPrairie These jeans are TRUE STRAIGHT LEGS!
I've worn these jeans for yrs. now & they truly are STRAIGHT legs. Other's will claim to be straight legs but, they're NOT, they're boot cut w/o the flair. The only WEIRD thing about these jeans is that the waist is UP in your RIBS!! U HAVE TO train that waistband DOWN to your NATURAL waist! WHAT IS UP W/ THAT, LL BEAN?! I've been to Maine, many X's, I've been to your Original store many X's, I know WOMEN who live in Maine--they DO NOT have WEIRD HIGH WAISTLINE'S so, WHAT IS IT w/ U & these jeans?! FIX THE WAISTLINE, like 99.9% of the NORMAL population of women ALL over the planet! LOVE the fact that U will hem to inseam for nominal fee. GREAT SWEATER'S TOO! LOVE LL BEAN'S CLOTHES!!! LOVE THESE JEANS!! I mean, TRUE STRAIGHT LEG, fr. top to ankle!!
I think it is FABULOUS that LL BEAN shows me PLACES NEAR ME to GET OUTDOORS!!! THAT IS TRULY AWESOME!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lujie Not a true waist size
I have been the same size for 10 plus years. I always bought size six in LL Bean Kakies and jeans. My recent purchase of Kakies is snug so I went to an 8 in the jeans. They are less snug but still snug. I tried on other Bean jeans and Kakies from the past all are sixes and not snug. Somewhere along the way the sizing has changed. I love the material and style but not true Bean sizing.

I like the substantial fabric in these jeans, but the snug fit in the waist caused me to return them. A larger size was not a solution because of the larger hip and thigh area.
