Rated 3 out of 5 by macabe No waist, huge butt
I should have read the other reviews more carefully before I ordered. I'm a 6P and the waist was way too tight, the hips way too baggy. The material is great, the length perfect. Too bad about the fit. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by DianeNH Careful: Bayside Cords - Same Name, Dif't Fit
Baside Cords - very confusing. I just received 2 pair of "Bayside Stretch Cords Plain Front" which I thought were an order of the same "Bayside Cords" I bought 2 years ago. They are not and the confusing thing is that the other "Bayside Cords" are also still available with a slightly dif't name "Stretch Bayside Cords Plain Front" (notice the word Stretch comes before the word Bayside). Further, when I attempt to leave this review for the pair I bought, it brings me to the review page of the pair I want. I have no idea where this review will end up so I'll try to explain. "Bayside Stretch" Item number TK229656 are above the waist fit (yuck) and very tapered leg (2 stars). The other "Stretch Bayside" item number TK258621 (4 stars) is just below the waist fit and more straight ( but slightly tapered) leg. I much prefer the "Stretch Bayside" and now that I get it, have ordered these and will return the "Bayside Stretch" ASAP. Also size is smaller in "Bayside Stretch" pair. I usually wear an 8 Petite and these were much too small in the waist.

These are my favorite cold weather pants. I have them in every color. The fabric is soft, warm and washes and wears very well; they fit every occasion - dress up or down with tops and accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Winterland Stretch Bayside Corduroys, Plain Front
The quality is very good as usual. However the waist runs small. I usually wear a 6 petite, but these are tight, yet all the other pants are fine at this size. I also bought a pair of "Bayside Stretch Corduroys, Curvy Fit" in a size 4 petite, as that was all that was left. Weirdly enough, the "curvy fit" size 4 pants fit better than these. I still recommend them, just get a size larger to accomodate the smaller waist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LibertyBelle Used to like them!
I have a pair of these cords from several years ago, and bought another pair finally to replace them. First, I want to thank Bean for not cheaping out on the material - it is just as heavy and comfortable as it was years ago. Second, I love the taper of the legs; it is not a lot, just enough to convince me I am not wearing bell bottoms. But here is what I don't like, and why I have to return them: the waist is too high and too tight! My old pair has the same height waist, which is too high for me now that I have gotten used to pants that actually sit at the waist, but these new cords are tighter than the same size cords from years ago. The difference in waists is huge! I guess I will have to get the classic fit cords and taper the legs myself.

So happy I found this shade of green to go with two sweaters that I bought years ago and haven't worn because I 'outgrew' my previous cords that matched the sweaters. I am 5'8", 132, these fit perfectly in 10 Tall. Plus I love the traditional cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lexykiya My favorite pants
These pants are so cozy and comfortable, and they look great too. I have them in four colors, and would buy more if they offered light gray. My favorites are the classic carmel and light khaki colors. I also have the chocolate brown and black. They are great, too; I just prefer the lighter colors.
The pants launder great and don't require ironing. I am 5'7" and buy medium tall from LLBean. I think it's the perfect length. It's not too long, but is long enough to allow for slight shrinkage. In the past, I've had to donate many of my cords (other brands) that shrunk in length after repeated washings. I have had my LLBean cords for a few months now, and have not noticed any shrinkage after repeated washings. They are so warm and nice in the cooler months, but never seem hot when I'm indoors.
The original fit is great. If your waist is smaller than your hips and you like pants that fit at the waist, these pants are the best.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dmsPhD beware!
nice pants, but i found the waist/hip ratio to be off for me. the size 12 fit in the waist but the hips were big, and the size 10 fit in the hips, but the waist was small. and i have a fairly dainty size waist!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MizPicky Beware the black color!
I have ordered these pants several times in black and in other colors. About two years ago I ordered some black pants and was disappointed that the black had a noticeable brown undertone. It was particularly evident when the pants were next to something else black, shoes, for instance. I called the color to the attention of the saleslady, and she agreed with me that the pants looked brown. Now, two years later, I tried again. This time the same thing happened, that is, the pants looked brownish rather than true black. I will return them as the brown becomes more prominent as the fabric ages. The fit and style of these pants are great; I just wish I could get them in real black.
