Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer More Colors Please!
I love the Double L Chinos--so much so that I wear a pair just about every day. However, I would like to have some more variety to my wardrobe. LL Bean used to make these pants in a 'pale khaki' or 'soapstone' color that was much lighter than the 'khaki.' They looked especially nice in the summer.
Please, LL Bean, bring back the 'pale khaki' --and perhaps even introduce a 'Nantucket red' or some such. I will buy 10x alone!

Fit well, very good fabric and stitching, it's pretty easy to see why they can offer the assurance they do when you feel them. There are a few threads that poke out but the pattern seems like it should resist unraveling pretty well.
The only downside I've noticed is that the fit was different between the Navy and Khaki versions of these that I purchased, I preferred the tighter fit of the Navy and would have liked it to be the same on both as they were both listed as classic fit in my cart. Not really a fault of the product though.
Having had several lower priced Chinos fray under normal use (getting in and out of car seats breaking off back pocket buttons, wearing down back belt loop, etc) I'm hoping these will be more resilient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBeanFanSince1980 Inferior fabric
These pants look very good and fit me well, but the fabric is shoddy. After relatively little use the fabric is frayed at the hems and noticeably worn at the knees. It certainly does NOT "wear well," as claimed in the product description! I wish LL Bean would bring back the very durable polyester-blend fabric they used to use for these pants.

You may want to avoid the "dark khaki", as it has an odd orange color.

I was a D3 wearer for years. I tried the Standard LL Chino and was swimming in them, I called LL and they told me these Classic fit were what I wanted and gladly took my return and I ordered these. I will never go back! While these are a bit roomier than my old D3 they have the room where you need it, they fit a slim guy very well and have all day long comfort. The material is a step heavier then the D3s (read as upgrade!). And they all seem to be treated with some sort of scotch guard stuff. I have dribbled coffee and water and it beads up and just rolls off. No cuff issues either like others have had. Casual work-wear I actually like to put on in the morning, who'd-a-thunk it! Thanks LL
How about a grey color guys?

Rated 5 out of 5 by PickyRicky Great, so far.
Excellent quality fabric. Soft and yet wrinkle resistant. LL Bean has perfected this one. It's a no-brainer purchase for chinos.
BTW, buyer beware. Your jean size is NOT your chino/dress pant size. I take a 34'' in jeans, but a 36'' in dress pants (talking about waist size for those who still haven't had their morning coffee).

Rated 3 out of 5 by blackbeltPA Disappointed
I will start out by saying that per LLBean's fantastic customer service, I am returning these and getting them replaced. My husband loves the fit and comfort of them.
However, I was terribly disappointed, especially with the Dark Khaki color that we ordered. We had them less than a year and the color started wearing off, as if they were garment dyed. Then the comb in his back pocket wore 2 holes right through! and the hem frayed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Pockets are "wrong"
The pockets in this are positioned so that your hands can't naturally fit into them. You need to uncomfortably reach behind you to reach into your pockets.
Also after wearing these for a day, despite them certainly being the correct size, I felt quite some discomfort. They seemed to strain my body in some hard to explain way. Overall not satisfied.

Great cut&fit, but POOR material. Cuffs fray quickly and wear spots show after limited washings. Poor button sewing. I've had NONE of these problems with near decade older Bean chinos I still wear! My wife has had similar issues with declining LL Bean Chino quality and won't buy more. Nevertheless, I recently bought 5 MORE pair, HOPING to keep them in rotation until Bean solves this problem. So many of your customers depend upon these pants for daily use and want to stay loyal to your company. Please return the loyalty and try to solve this ongoing quality issue. We need to know you are listening.
