Rated 5 out of 5 by nrat Buy one size up from last year
Great fitting pants, but one size smaller than what i had last year and the year before last. For some reason LLBean has decided to dress the skinny types or has their sizing all wrong. Further, winter hasnt started yet and these are already out of stock. Are you kidding me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luckyal Great fit, great pants!!
I received these 'dusty olive' cords yesterday, and finally put them on this afternoon. WOW! They fit me perfectly except they're about 1 inch too long. I'll wash them first to see what happens. They are probably one of the very best fitting pants I've ever had. Perfect and flattering in every detail. Thanks to LLBean for making pants that fit at the WAIST instead of below the waist or 'hipsters'. That may be great for 25 year-olds, but it's not the same for the 70+ set! Thank you, LL Bean for producing a great set of pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cuagrad Perfect cords
I love these cords. A perfect fit for me. I am 5' 8" and 145 lbs with most of my weight below the waist. The elastic in the waist is not the entire back of the pants, rather a bit on each size and don't look gathered over my rear as the twill Bayside pants do.. Thanks LLBean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gigi2006 Disappointed in this style
I wear corduroys all winter and love the Favorite Fit Straight style. It sits lower on the waist and doesn't bind. I couldn't find the Favorite Fit in corduroys this year so I ordered this style but it sits higher and the comfort waist gives it too much material in the rear. It looks frumpy. I liked the look and fit of the Favorite Fit. This look isn't as crisp and neat.
Please bring the old ones back.

I love these pants- soft material, sturdy, just right for fall and winter, wear well and fit perfectly with the comfort waist. I just bought several pairs and will probably add a few more in the coming weeks. I ordered the Size 12 Petite. I am 5'3" and 137 lbs. This size is perfect for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kalliopeus Pants faded with proper washing
I really like these pants. They look nice, fit well, and the waist is very becoming. Unfortunately they developed fade spots on the back of the right leg (large dramatic ones) after only six months. I was washing them cold, inside out, and drying them flat as the label suggested. I never use any form of bleach.
So these pants aren't color fast.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lovestallpantsgirl Sizes not true
I have ordered several pairs of cords from LL Bean and have never been this disappointed in an item. I wish I had read the reviews before I had my husband order them for me for Christmas. The waist is totally too tight and I ordered the size that I wear in every other pair of pants that I own from LL Bean and elsewhere. I won't make the mistake of ordering this style again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mweedon Sizing is wrong.
I thought that I could trust the sizing since I have bought and loved bayside pants in the past, but on these cords the fit was too tight in the waist and hips. I really wanted to buy some cords from LLBean, but I am disappointed. More and more I'm finding that the fit is wrong for pants or that the styles that I like do not come with traditional waists.

Rated 2 out of 5 by leftwanting Too Short
Beautiful corduroy,fit great through waist and hips,however, pants were much too short in the stride to be original fit tall. Had a pair from a couple a years ago and have loved wearing them, but when I measured what were supposed to be the exact same pants, the new ones were over an inch shorter in the stride front and back and not comfortable to wear. Had read other reviews that the pants were fitting differently and agree 100%.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4crows 5' 8" with long legs and weigh over 200
i get this pants year after year even though they are short on me. i could use at least 2 more inches of length. BUT they are great pants and i cant find tall pants in my size. understand that its all about demand, but still cant understand why Tall pants are limited to Misses or XL. I wear size 20w, am 5' 8", with height carried in my legs. pants are often short for me, particularly at LLBean. But i am a teacher, a practical dresser, want durability,outdoorsy, like comfort,so end up at this website!
BUT PLEASE LLBean, how could it hurt to just lengthen your womens pants and let the short people shorten them if they have to. I cant lengthen them. Or make tall for 20W. i have resorted to getting my black knit pants elsewhere and used to get them with you regularly. I cant be the only one, right?
