Rated 4 out of 5 by ischus Great pair of pants but don't hold up too long
Great fit and feel. These are my go to chinos for work. Unfortunately, with normal wear, this pair lasted less than 6 months before seams started coming loose near the button. Seems to be a recent occurrence. My previous ones have lasted longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jianryla Awesome stain protection
In a shoe polishing operation gone bad, I splattered brown shoe polish all over the front of my pants. I thought sure the pants were history. To my surprise, the brown stains came right off with only water!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CubicleDweller LL Chino
These chinos look OK and feel OK and they are less expensive - but they don't hold up - the belt loops fray, as does the hem on the bottom - my recommendation? purchase more expensive pants ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by FredKnows Not the same quality chinos that I still own.
This is not the same quality Double L Chinos that I bought years ago and still have hanging in my closet. Those three trousers fit perfectly, look stylish, and are very comfortable. As soon as I put this new pair of pants on, I knew something was different. When I walk, sit, bend at the knees I'm constantly reminded (and wish I could forget) that I'm wearing these pants. The legs on these chinos are tapered more severely; I didn't think there was any excess material that needed to be removed. These chinos laid against my old pants are 1/2 inch narrower, which means they removed at least an inch of material around the circumference of the legs from the hips to the cuffs (and that's before their initial washing). It gives them a cheap look and wears like a shoe that pinches. I'm also suspicious about the quality of the fabric. It feels like a lighter cotton, but I'm uncertain. My old chinos I wear year round, but these almost feel like summer pants. I would have gladly paid a proportionate increase in price for the same quality garment that they used to sell. Now I'm far less likely to pants from Bean (jeans included), since this style no longer fits properly and looks tacky.

by DonfromPowhatan Great fit. Material not so much.
These chinos have been a staple in my closet for more that 20 years. The fit is perfect (there are many choices). I will continue to buy them until the others that I try from different manufacturers can beat them.
I have a retirement job that allows casual wear (chinos in cool weather and shorts in warm weather) I mention this because I wear these only 1/2 a year.
The material is comfortable. They still fit after washing and drying.
My complaint is the material at the end of the pant leg.(I don't wear a cuff) One season and the ends are coming apart. I have several pair so it's not like I wear the same ones all the time. And no, my pants don't drag the ground. They seem to wear right at the top of my LLB deck shoes that I wear with these pants.
Pls LLB, don't stop importing these. I love them ...except

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMille Just wish there were more colors . . .
These chinos are great; they fit well, look good, are really wrinkle free, and good quality. I just wish there were more color options. They used to sell an "oak" color, i.e., light brown, which are my favorite pair, but don't sell that color anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seekfivestars A little late ... but worth it!
It took me 6 months to remember I had purchased these pants. (Understandable, since I moved my home & office across town.) Well, I'm wearing them now, and they are very comfortable, the length is exactly as I specified, the waist is right-on, and the material is good quality.
They attract a bit of lint but that's why we have those lint brushes!
Overall, yes, I recommend them.

I have bought similar pants in the past from LLB with the same measurements, but these Chinos have an Inseam that is much shorter than normal. I will return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AgingGracefully Definitely ordering more
I bought these for my husband, using his usual jeans size for LLBean. They are super! Look wonderful, little wrinkling, no strain at the waist, no clown pants look. They seem a slightly more forgiving waist fit than the jeans....maybe it's the fabric. But they sure look nice (and more grown-up than jeans!). He is 5'10", 158 and wears 33/32. If that is you or yours, you can't miss. I will be ordering more of these for him.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 67TOMCAT Double L Chinos
I agree with numerous reviews of the Double L Chinos. The pants are nicely styled, and I like the fact they are available in 31" waist. However, there has been a slippage in quality over the last few years. The legs fray far too easily- I do not buy the pants with cuffs. The legs on all colors tend to discolor quickly as well, especially Navy. I do like the color options and availability, but no more than 3 stars for this item.
