Rated 5 out of 5 by Susu13 Perfect, as usual!
I have been buying these pants for a long time---and they last forever and always look great and feel great, too. They can be casual or dressy--these are my "go-to" pants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeanx Maternity waistband, skinny bottoms
I have been ordering these pants for years. I was soooo disappointed with the "new" original perfect fit pants. The waistband had the feel and fit of maternity pants! The waistband now has a gathered waistband instead of the flat one LL Bean used to have. And the waistband was so loose. I felt great wearing the older version, but not with these. Also, the bottom of the legs were so much narrower than the "original" ones. I had 2 pairs of older pants. They measured 8 3/4" and 9" on the bottom. The "new" pair was 7 1/4". Unfortunately, I had to return them. LL Bean, please return to your "original" version.

Rated 3 out of 5 by doubleHKy Don't like tapered leg
I would be more likely to buy more of these if the legs were not tapered. A tapered leg looks bad on most women--just makes our hips look big. I need the waste band at waste like these pants, so the other straight leg comfort pants don't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chapelhellian Easy wash & wear and love the pockets
These wash & dry up quickly, they have pockets handy to carry cell phone, keys, ear buds, etc. and they come in practical colors. For me, at 5'5', they are the right length. Good for gym and grocery shopping and the waist is forgiving which I require in my decrepitude. I just have to keep cats off my lap as kneeding claws can make tiny holes.
Love these. Highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TexasShopper5 Not the same product
I have ordered Perfect Fit Pants for years--- and these are not the same product. They are made from different fabric, are longer and do not have the double fabric front. Why in the world would you sell these by the same name? I am sad to see the original product go and would be happy to pay more if production costs were the issue. Please bring back the original pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Priorcustomer Very disappointing
These pants have a slightly crisp texture and come out of the dryer WRINKLED. I did not expect knit pants to require ironing. Cold water wash, delicate dry, per instructions - which include 'cool iron as needed.' They're also quite a bit longer than 29.5" indicated, and side seams do not lie flat. Not suited for travel as wrinkles persist, really disappointed in this purchase.
Note I've been pleased with other LLBean purchases, a bit surprised these were not what I expected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pantperson Changed the length!
The medium tall is now a half inch shorter turning them into "no longer perfect fit" pants. These have been my go-to pants for twenty years, the narrow leg makes them look slimming, the rise is just right, and the length hit at the top of my shoes. A half inch makes all the difference to us medium tall folks, please rethink the change.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maryenne Not my old favorites at all
These have been my go-to pants for several years and I ordered new ones because the originals had started to fade. I received my order yesterday and was quite surprised and double checked to see if I had ordered the wrong pants. The fabric is completely different and now feels cheap. The inseam was longer than before. The pants legs were tighter around my ankles as well, almost like the slim fits. I will be sending these pants back and will hesitate before I order any more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Devotedshopper Quality has changed
Definitely noticed a change in quality of Original Perfect Fit pants including fabric (not as soft and thinner fabric), fit (same size comes with varying tightness of elastic in waist) and width of fabric at calf varies from legging tightness to comfortably loose. The gathered instead of stitched waistband is total junk! Have ordered these pants for decades, and continue to delegate oldest(10+ years) pants to wearing at home because they are faded and comfortable. LLB would do well to realize that many of us ordering Perfect Fit prefer the fabric and quality of years past, not the cheap imitations currently being sold. Unfortunately other items ordered in the past couple of years are suffering in quality as well, and end up being returned. Come on, LLBean, your history is quality merchandise, not the inferior products marketed today.
