Rated 5 out of 5 by yorktownbean Substantial Fabric- a much needed improvement
I have been purchasing these pants for many years but stopped a few years back when the fabric became flimsy and clingy. After reading another review that stated the improvement in the fabric, I decided to give these a try in the navy blue. I am so happy! The pants are beautiful deep navy and don't look worn out and cheap. They look like nice substantial slacks and not like athletic wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TribeLady Average inseam is much longer than 30"
I own many of these pants. Originally, the average, represented as having a 30" inseam, actually did have a 30" inseam. I recently purchased two more pair, and both have 32" inseams, which qualifies as Medium Tall, even though the packaging indicates they are Average. While I would have been OK with 31", because I fall between what is described as Average and Medium Tall, these are definitely too long. I will return them to my local LLBean store, rather than returning them by mail for replacements, to avoid ending up with too-long pants again. Of course, perhaps LLBean is using a different manufacturer, and all of the averages will now be too long. Also, I felt that the hips were smaller than before and the rise longer, so that the waistband rolled over, and, no, I haven't gained any weight. Overall, the fit just wasn't the same. I buy boot cut because I don't want pockets. I was very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by huntress47 Such an odd fit
I ordered according to the size chart and got my usual XL. They're huge!!!! I swear I could fit another person in here. I like the colors and fabric, but now am not sure whether to go down one size or two. I suspect they run large, especially in hips, so I might try an M. Bean has a good return policy--it's just frustrating if you want to wear something right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hill2313 Must have!
I've been wearing the boot-cut perfect fit pants for at least 5+ years. I'm still on my original 2 pair and am thinking about buying 2 more. I wear them so much that there is always a pair or two in the wash. I'm a new Mom and have found these pants especially versatile after having the baby and a c-section. They go with all the new shirts I had to buy to accommodate my new body. I would like pockets on the boot-cut...that's my only complaint, but the straight leg cut doesn't look right on me (it has pockets). Other than that, these pants are truly a perfect fit!

I am 5'2" 103 lbs. Ordered XS petite. Length ok but hips and thigh area were baggy. Took in the side seam so it would look more fitted and not so loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogocentric Really nice color taupe borwn
I already had the black pants, which I have been wearing almost daily. The taupe brown pants appear very dark on my computer screen and one of the reviews said that the pants were true to the color on screen, so I was expecting dark brown. I was pleasantly surprised that they are really a taupe brown and not too dark at all. The pants fit perfectly and are very comfortable. As with other Bean items I have bought, they have an unpleasant chemical odor when taken out of the bag, but it goes away by washing them before wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WalkerGirl In Love Again!
I've worn these pants about since Bean started offering them so you can imagine my disappointment about six months ago when the new pairs I ordered were of a flimsy material that sagged a bit with wear. I kept one pair and returned the other with a comment about the fabric change. Because I could not find a better alternative in others stores, I decided to try Bean's Perfect Fit Bootcut pants again and bought them once there was a discount. Boy, am I glad I did! I think the fabric is better then ever: slightly thicker with a firm stretch that gives gentle support without revealing unsightly lines or bulges. Thank you Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgiaBirdwatcher Truly Perfect Fit Pants
I've been wearing the Perfect Fit Boot-Cut for several years and have enjoyed these pants immensely. They are so versatile. They look tailored, but are very comfortable. The boot-cut style can be worn for dress or casual. I wear a Large and they are very slenderizing. I have these pants in Classic Navy, Dark Gray Heather, Taupe Brown, Khaki and four pair in black. Right now, I'm going to order the Indigo Heather.
I wear them all the time - to church, for business, to go grocery shopping.....anywhere. They are perfect to take on trips as well. They don't wrinkle and always look very nice. I wash them on Permanent Press or Normal in cold water and hang them to dry. Consequently, I've never noticed any shrinkage after all of these years. They still look great. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyBr I think these are perfect!
I believe I've reviewed these years ago, but since I just received 4 more pairs, I wanted to review them again. I love these pants. My old ones were still beautiful, but I happily lost weight and needed a new size. I wear these to work, casually, even for walking. In my opinion they haven''t changed at all, and I am very glad they don't have pockets and fit slimly through the waist and hips. They never had pockets, and several of the other style perfect fit pants do if you like them. I am 5'4", weigh about 135, and the regular medium fit perfectly (with flat shoes)

Rated 2 out of 5 by cherbear928 What happened to the pockets
Ordered petites, too long, that has never happened with these before. What happened to the pockets? These pants used to have pockets. Disappointed.
