Rated 5 out of 5 by dlk44 Great Pants
These are great pants. I've had the Perfect fit cotton knit pants before, but never the cords. They wash beautifully and have the close fit of pants without an elastic waist. I'm very pleased and will be ordering in a different color also.

These pants are great! I've been buying them for the last couple years. Very comfortable, good material, and warm. I'm very happy with these. Another good product from LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BootCutFan Perfect fit for me
I am 5'1" with big hips but normal waist. Size large petite in these pants fit me perfectly. I have 2 pair and am ordering a third. Aside from the useless shallow pockets, I like everything about them. They are the most comfortable pants I own.

I was extremely delighted when I put these pants on!! I am 5'6" about 110 lbs -- short waisted with longer legs. I ordered the XS -- med/tall -- if you like a nice fit through your waist & hip area these are the pants for you -- also the Pockets are built to lay flat -- great having the pockets?. They are comfortable, the fabric is not a heavy corduroy but warm enough for the colder months. These pants can be dressed up or worn casually!! I love not having any zippers or snaps. I was glad I ordered the Med/Tall length -- perfect with a small boot heel -- as the inseam of regular length I believe was only 30+ inches-- this extra length will allow me to wash them then toss in dryer without worrying about shrinkage. Going to order a Second Pair -- perfect to slip fast & go!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trix103 Disappointing
I ordered two pants, black and brown in petite. The length on the black was fine, the brown however was too long. Also, while these are straight leg they are wide all the way down. Not very flattering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TKP518 Shrank in the dryer
These pants are so comfortable but the size MT shrank 2 inches in the dryer on delicate setting. I also had a problem with the fabric looking mottled after washing as another reviewer mentioned. It would be great if LLBean offered these cords in the Tall length so when they shrink they would be the right MT length. I will keep them to wear as lounge pants, but I am so disappointed. I wear the straight leg perfect fit pants almost every day and love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NortheastNeighbour My Mom's favourite comfy pants
I've purchased two pairs of these Perfect Fit Knit Cords for my mother, who is in her 80s. She says that they have washed well, and she uses cold or warm water.
She has always been a fit 5'5" and worn a size 8 pants for the past two decades at least. In S-XL sizing, she has worn a medium, or on occasion a small. In recent years she seems to have shrunk a bit in height, and swears that she is getting a "muffin top" now that she is over 80...makes me laugh!
For these cords, she prefers a medium Petite, as they are the perfect length and she doesn't have to hem them. The legs are a bit wider than her dressier pants have always been #she has slim legs and is a sharp dresser#, but she wears these frequently for everyday life. They are the first stretch-waist pants I can recall her endorsing. I guess that comfort is important if you have a little muffin-top. ;)

Rated 3 out of 5 by NCmountainwear Just Don't Fit Me
I must be one of the few who can't find LLBean pants that fit me. This pair is no exception, unfortunately. The color is nice, and the fabric seems OK, but the fit...on me...is terrible. I don't ever have this problem with other brands. The elastic comfort waist on these pants seems hardly stretchy at all, and the elastic seemed stiff. When I tried them on, the waist gaped open in the back, but the fabric around the stomach and hips area was skimpy. I have elastic waist slacks from JCPenny that fit like a dream...also have Alfred Dunner slacks...great fit in size 12. These in size L had to be sent back. Another problem I see with them is the sizing itself. I much prefer definite sizes, rather than S,M,L...Too ambiguous . I won't try Bean slacks again, after encountering this problem both times I've ordered them, first with dress slacks with a zipper opening, and now with these elastic waist slacks. Too bad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GolfingGardener Not for curvy figures
I've had good luck with Bean pants as long as they are sized with numbers - I'm a Size 8 - but have no luck with sizes called Small or Medium. The problem, as with these pants, is that the waist in a Small - Sizes 6-8 - fits wonderfully, but the hips are too tight. I am not going to order a Medium, as I know the waist will be way too big, even if the hips are perfect. Too bad - these looked like they'd be really comfortable. The Med-tall length would have been just fine for my 30-1/2" inseam.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TravelingGardener Fabric--Mottled dye lot
About four years ago, I bought 3 pairs of Perfect Fit cords, as I love the regular boot cut medium tall perfect fit pants which I buy regularly. I love the cords so much that I have just about worn them out. However, the new ones I purchased in November, 2015 have fabric that look like dye lots that are mottled. I ordered them in 2013, and had to return them for the same reason. Mottled makes the fabric look inferior ----at least to me. Could you make the pants with more even tones, like the original ones I ordered? I love everything else about these pants--fit, length, rise, comfort, etc. I will be first in line to buy them when the dye lots are not mottled. In the meantime, I plan to return these.
