The leg length shrank after washing. I followed the care instructions exactly but alas, the leg length shrunk :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by RockRollBlues Get For Casual Wear
It's not that I don't like these pants. Perhaps my highest compliment would be asking LL Bean to consider updating what this pant has to offer, to expanding it to include broader audience and uses.
Imho, this pant is more than suitable for being around the house, or those casual errands. I bought "boot cut" in brown and it is a true, deeper cocoa brown.
Based on number of reviews, this pant is obviously a best seller. What I want companies to realize, is that when they have a best seller, asking themselves, " How can we redesign this to make it even better? Sadly, some companies do so, but eliminate the original. I say, use commons sense, unless the "original" is showing poor sales, keep it!
If buying "boot cut," don't expect these pants to hang with the more updated, and slightly more sophisticated, wider leg, yoga pant. Yes, you will have more width, but it will not be anything other than casual in appearance.
I would like to see a second addition offered with more somewhat more structure, and a permanent pleats and pockets. Something that you would not think of as TOO casual to dine out, with mid scale errands, luncheons, etc. Thinking this would require mix of fabrics, but fine with me. Yes, I would be willing to pay more for this.
On my upmost wish list is for company to produce a dress pant with the comfort of these pants, that do not require dry cleaning.
Amen, that the old elastic band of yore is gone, with the memory of many of our grandmothers, and mothers with that tacky zig-zag elastic. The smooth waist band has converted me to thinking I would never wear these type of pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LyndaBeth Dear L.L: It's TIME!!
Dear L.L.: Someone needs to tell you that IT IS TIME!! TIME to move beyond black, grey, tan, navy, and coffee--- and go for some actual color in your pants lines! Colored pants is not a sin--- I repeat, NOT. And since women now wear pants to the office, pants to campaign in, pants to parties, and pants to church, we deserve a few more color options, don't you think? In some of your pants you have, I see, included Fig and Loden-- BRAVO! How about extending those options into the boot-cut Perfect Fit Pants, which is a special favorite with your customers? And how about a pumpkin colored "spice" option plus an option in a rich teal? I could even go for bright red winter pants, plus a true purple....... Just because you are in Maine (and thus MORE New England than New England) does not mean you have to abjure color! Think California for a while.... think New Mexico, and think about how much joy color brings to life, esp. in the dark winters that are right now on their way. In short, PLEASE bring these pants out in some new and vibrant colors! Let's expand the options for women..... not keep them in the general range of ordinary. . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanCustomer58 I always return for more
Ultra comfortable, well-made, well-fitting pants. I own every color in every style of the perfect fit line. I've been wearing these for many years and always receive compliments on them. Recently I shopped in an L.L. Bean store in my area and the salesperson said "those look really nice on you". These pants hold up to wear for every activity from work to shopping to dog walking to just hanging out. They wash well and hold their shape, and they always look crisp and neat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by twoocat55 Great Pants!!
I can't say enough about these pants. The fit is like they were made for me. So comfortable, and they look so nice with everything. I have been looking forever for pants that fit like these. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DintheD The Perfect Fit that really was the Perfect Fit
I ordered these pants a few years ago and fell in love with them. You can dress them up or dress them down - very versatile. I love the fact that they have NO POCKETS! The fit was awesome, they wear, wash and pack well. So today I am ordering another pair. I only wish LLBean made some of the other cuts available with no pockets. What do you say Bean? Us gals with hips would love that option.

From the moment these were first available, I ordered two of every color. Until I retired from coaching and teaching, I would restock each year by adding a couple more pair. These are the MOST COMFORTABLE PANTS EVER!!! These are very easily dressed for the office or work place, yet easily become your "after 5" loungewear! These are VERY FORGIVING, and if your weight goes up or down 10 lbs. (or a even more) ---- these babies help you hide it when necessary!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jegg almost perfect fit
I can't expect more than an almost perfect fit, since I am an hourglass shape with a petite torso and long legs, so I have a terrible time finding anything that fits right and is long enough. But these pants are just about as perfect as I can get. All I would complain about is the waistband coming up an inch or so higher than I would like, but I find, in both these and in the slim cut straight leg perfect fit jeans, that the waistband is very forgiving, so even though it tends to fold over when I sit down, it isn't unbearable. I would love a bootcut fit just like these in the slim jeans too, but until (and if) those become available, these are my new go-to (almost) perfect fit pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by juji22 Very comfortable
I love the boot cut pants! Mainly because they don't have pockets and are not bulky under tight sweaters like the straight-legs are. I am 5'4", 105 lbs, and get the XS reg. and they fit perfectly. I have black, navy and taupe; wish there were a dark brown. My only complaint is that the seat gets a bit shiny after a while (perhaps because I sit so much!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by cab3686 Love these pants
I just discovered these pants a couple of weeks ago. I'm disappointed that they are backordered in some of the sizes/colors. The large was a little big on me so I ordered the medium and it was a little small, so I opted for the large. I can't say enough about the pants. They are so comfortable and very appropriate for work.
