Rated 5 out of 5 by fzoller Classic Cut that all men should adopt.
Fantastic quality for the price. It is painstakingly difficult to find pants or jeans with this high of a rise these days. A high rise just makes one's body more proportionate. Thank you for making these and I hope you don't make changes to it. To those complaining about bagginess...you might not be wearing it at your natural waist .This fits straight with a certain trimness unlike the ungodly amount of slim/skinny jeans with horrendous low rise that major retailers are selling these days. Bravo L.L Bean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by avidfisherman Double L Jeans, Classic -MISS-Fit
I've been wearing Double L Jeans for over 20 years. Not any more.
For the past year I have been unable to get the correct size and fit for the jeans ordered. After many returns they are still running 2" to 3" larger in the waist and the "Classic" fit is in reality the Relaxed" fit. They are very loose/baggy through the hips and thighs.
How is it that I keep getting the same miss marked size and fit jeans time after time? Better question is... Why do I keep trying? Management needs to take a serious look the manufacturers quality control, because the issue is not going away: Only this frustrated customer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tbber02 What happened to the fit?
Have been wearing these jeans for 15 years, but my recent purchase of three pairs is disappointing. These fit more like a Relaxed size?but they are labeled Classic. They are loose, baggy, and the crotch hangs low. I'm glad I still have a half-dozen pairs of my old jeans. I won't be buying any more L.L. Bean jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RidgeMan Good Jeans, but Black Color Fades Out Fast
Black is a hard jean color to keep from fading. I have an old pair of black LL Bean jeans that gradually and evenly faded over time. This purchase was intended to replace that pair. However, after only two washings, the black color was fading out in a very uneven way. I did not like the look and returned for exchange to a regular blue pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shoppernr17 Problem Fixed!
Wrote a review citing my disappointment with the label bleeding 3 months ago. Subsequently ordered 4 pair and through several washes no problem with the label bleeding. Since LL Bean obviously reads these reviews I will echo the comments of others wrt "bagginess". Suspect the looseness of the weave (similar to sheet thread count) is the reason. They are comfortable and it stands to reason a looser weave requires less material resulting in less cost but a more tailored appearance would be appreciated. A little more substantial fabric (better, thicker feel or "hand") is warranted (along with a price increase). Based on other reviews I'll probably look into 1912's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bud42 Shrinkage
I bought two pairs of these jeans at the Flagship Store last Fall. I bought them to fit, which was good until they were washed. I had them dry cleaned for months to preserve the color and fit, but while travelling, I succumbed to a dry cleaners operator, and they were washed. They shrank at least two inches in length. I believe LLBean sizes them correctly for them to be laundered, so order your correct size and plan for the shrinkage. Until washed, they will seem to be too long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Champion70 QUALITY CHANGING?
I have purchased Double L Classic Fit jeans for years. The last two pairs, however, which I ordered online, were not of the same quality as in the past. In comparison to other manufacturers, LL Bean's Classic Fit jeans have a terrible tendency to quickly fray at the bottom. Starting to get disappointed!

As a 1st time buyer to LL Bean I was pleasantly surprised.
I bought Traditional jeans first but had to exchange for the Classic.
Very Easy exchange process
What more can I say

Rated 4 out of 5 by CoastsideBean LL's are great jeans.
I really like the simple, clean look of these jeans. But I wish the rise was just a bit lower. Not much, maybe 3/4" to one inch. I know the 1912 jeans have a lower rise, but I prefer the plain back pockets of the LL's. Also would like to see a darker rinse, something closer to the dark rinse of the Signature jeans. I have the LL jeans in dark rinse, and they are fairly dark in lower light. But when you step outside, they look very "blueberry" in color. All in all, I really like these jeans.
