Rated 2 out of 5 by Mauramoi Disappointed
Having these pants as a favorite for years, I decided to refresh my wardrobe when I received a coupon for 15% off. I ordered 3 pair, two of the colors were on sale the black were not, but the black had been my standby favorites. The two colored pair fit fine, but this morning I got ready for work and grabbed the black. To my surprise they are much shorter to the point that I would be embarrassed to wear them. I'm thinking they might be labled incorrectly and should be a petite, but in my size, regular is only offered. Too bad, they are going back and now I'll probably have to go to the local LLBean store to try on before buying. Such a pain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ockaren What Happened to These Pants?
These use to be my favorite pants! What did LLBean do? I ordered three pairs they are completely different than the ones I ordered last year. They are most certainly going back. I'm going back to the "other" company to get my perfect pants.

I was prepared to replenish my wardrobe with another pair of your perfect fit pants. I have worn them year round for decades. After reading some bad reviews, I have changed my mind. I have always considered LLBean to have high quality clothes, etc., but it sounds like these pants are no longer of high quality. I hope LLBean will do what needs to be done to have your better quality knit pants again. I shall wait for that time, when your reviews become good again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Silverrain So bummed
These were my absolute favorite pants that I wore all the time, buttery soft cotton with a bit of Lycra, slightly fitted, flattering, dressy. I ordered a new black pair, and just as many other people have stated, the fabric is truly awful. It feels rough, synthetic, shiny, and clings in awkward places that nobody needs to see more of. Please LLBean, bring back the older quality version! I promise I'll buy 5 pairs!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MomWNL Flimsy material. Cheap.
Yes, it fit well, etc., but the material was flimsy, lightweight, almost like tights material. If I had been in the store and felt the material first, I wouldn't even have tried them on. They are advertised as boot cut, and they did accommodate my calf high, tie up boots, but the material is so light weight there is no way I could wear these except in the middle of summer. However, I wouldn't wear these in the middle of summer, either, because the material was embarrassingly flimsy. They did not cling, but they still managed to highlight every dimple on my 5'3", 165lb body's thighs. Ugh. Returned today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cust1112 khaki color not pretty
Giving it a 5* because I LOVE LOVE these perfect fit pants. I am 5'4" 110lb and wear a small med tall. I have been wearing these for many years in black and brown. Practically live in them at home. They are so comfortable but dont look like a knit pant. Very nice dressier fabric. I was so pleased they finally branched out the colors. I was looking for a beige. I ordered these in my usual brown and tried the khaki. The brown are a beautiful rich brown but the khaki are a funny color. They have kind of a gold cast to them. I was hoping for a more neutral stone or at least a tan but these are an unusual and unattractive (to me) color. I am returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mssusana Made just for ME!
Got these (along with some other things) today as I was plundering my closet looking for pants to wear with the fabulous embroidered velvet shirt I was already wearing. I was pulling out possible matches, making the usual mess as I was rushing to get out of the house for an X-ray appointment in Healdsburg. NOTHING WAS WORKING! But I wanted to wear the shirt!
Then I heard the unmistakable cacophony of barking as my two beautiful Standard Poodles announced the arrival of the mail. Wearing panties and this gorgeous shirt I slipped out of the front door and was thrilled to see the big LL Bean green bag. I grabbed it without being seen (I hope) and ripped it open to find the pair of Navy Blue pants that could not have been more PERFECT, as though they were part of the same dye lot!!! I yanked them on and luckily they fit like a second skin because I had to be out the door in five minutes.
I wore them all day and "comfortable" doesn't begin to describe it!
The trusted LL Bean quality was obvious in every seam, the fit amazing, the elastic waste a dream and the smooth no pocket design flattering and slimming.
So.........here I am back to see what other colors I might have missed and buy a second pair of black ones. You can't have enough black pants and with COTTON prominent in the fabric mix these black pants have no shine to them at all.
What more can I say.........PERFECT in every way. (though it looks like a new shoulder will be my personal Holiday treat :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by MphsRed Quality control sizing needs improvement!!!
For the Good: I love these pants (ordered black, dark brown, navy & rust red), the rust red is a beautiful brick red, not flashy or harsh.... they are very comfortable, wash well, travel well, can look professional if desired and above all they do not pill up and don't sag at the knees after long work day!!!
For the Bad: as others have stated, the length is inconsistent... ordered a Medium Regular (should be 30 inch length) and they fit great except for the length... 2 pair are under 30 inches... 2 pair over 31 inches... Some have mentioned the waist difference. I've only tried on 2 & they seem to fit fine.... I'll have to check the waist on the remaining 2 before I can evaluate. Also, they are a little pricey at $40 a pair due to quality control issue.. they would be a good buy if you can get them on sale or at a 20% discount.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SwedishinSeattle some colors softer than others
I have several older pairs of these, bought more like 2008/2009. I bought some new recently and the black are a little different, as others have said - not as soft (although the material feels maybe slightly more substantial). The blue color (in the SALE version) are soft like the old ones though, so I just ordered a 2nd pair of them. I just wear them around the house (both the old and new). Too thin to me to wear outside. It can be hard to find the sale ones if you look under SALE, but just search "perfect fit" and when you choose bootcut, you get 2 items - one being the SALE version/colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by anynicknamenotaken disappointed
I just received two pair of pants today, and they are going back tomorrow. For years, these have been my go to pants -- always comfortable, great for travel, and look nice, but every time I order a pair it seems the fabric is cheaper, and the quality lower. The ones I received today are a full half inch shorter than the last time I bought them and the fabric is itchy.
