Rated 5 out of 5áby Paideia for all occasions
I have ordered double chinos classic for years because I can wear them anywhere and they work. I most often wear them with a sport coat and [LLBean] turtle neck and they look great. But for a casual affair, such as a summer picnic, they work just as well. They are indeed "classic," for they make any outfit look right.

Rated 4 out of 5áby BhmBeanFanatic Awesome pants, but...
I have been purchasing the Double L Chinos for years. They have been a wonderful fit for me, both physically and functionally. I have not experienced issues with lost buttons, frayed cuffs, or belt loops, the legs are not too baggy (although that may be a matter of preference.) However, for the past several years the Double L chinos I have purchased have exhibited wear and fading along the rear pockets on both sides. It generally only takes a couple of months for the fading to set in. I continue to purchase the chino's because they are such a good fit for me otherwise, but it is quite aggravating. I do not recall this being an issue maore than a few years back.

Rated 3 out of 5áby padsfishn All good but the cuff/hem
The overall quality and fit is very good. I have bought a dozen pair at least of the classic and natural fit pleated. The only complaint I have is the fraying at the hem of the pants. If I wore them dragging the ground I would understand but this is not the case. They fray in the front as well as the rear quicker than they should. I wear them for work. I am in sales and wear business casual most of the time. They look good with a blazer or button down shirt but I have a few too many pair delegated to yard work due to frayed hems...

Rated 5 out of 5áby CoastalSailor Unbeatable quality
I have many pairs of these from 2007 and 2008 timeframe. I have worn them virtually every day and all have seen 100s of washings. There is minor fraying on belt loops and cuffs but not enough to even notice. I keep thinking I should order more, but it would purely be a waste to replace them at this point. Maybe a few more years!

Rated 1 out of 5áby mandrpop Great fit but poor quality
I usually buy cheap $12 pants from another store for my bartending job. I got tired of replacing them every 9 months and thought I would upgrade. The cuffs are badly frayed after only 6 weeks of use. Weird finish on pants attracts lint. I'm returning them.

Rated 3 out of 5áby llbeanjrh Again with early signs of wear
I agree with an earlier reviewer that noted the early signs of wear. I have six pair. That allows that a pair is not worn more than once a week and in less than 6 months the hem at the bottom and pockets are already showing fraying and excessive wear. I work in an office so there is more opportunity to wear on the seat of the pants than the cuff and pockets. I really do like the fit and wrinkle resistance and have continued to purchase, but I am looking for something with a longer life than 6 months.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Navyblue Lost all my buttons waaay too soon!
These pants are a good value for the price vs. similar products from a well known men's store that sell for nearly 3x as much. The material is a tad thinner, you don't get the extra waist closure button, but still good.
They run a tad large in the waist. I could wear a size smaller.
What infuriated me was losing every button (waist and each rear pocket) after only a few wearings and 2-3 washes. I can sew and all, but this shouldn't happen so quickly. Really annoying! I'd gladly pay a little more for better construction!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bob1957 awesome pants! great fit!
I ordered these pants in dark kakhi last week at 10% off. They are perfect for me for work with a sportshirt. They are so nice I ordered the Navy blue this morning also at 10% off. The fit is great! Another great product from LL Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Romeshopper strange pattern of wear
I have had 4 pairs of these pants and each have suffered from the same wear pattern. Cuff of pants wears out (frays like jeans) and belt loops become thread bear. No pair has lasted more than 18 months. One pair even wore a whole in the knee. I work in a hospital and these do not see hard wear. 3 stars is due to excellent return policy and the fact that they are comfortable and have excellent wrinkle resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MP7DE Good fit and high quality
Fit is true 34x32. Cut is straight leg - fits great over cowboy boots. Heavier fabric treated with some stain resistor.
