Rated 4 out of 5 More Colors Please!
I love the Double L Chinos--so much so that I wear a pair just about every day. However, I would like to have some more variety to my wardrobe. LL Bean used to make these pants in a 'pale khaki' or 'soapstone' color that was much lighter than the 'khaki.' They looked especially nice in the summer.
Please, LL Bean, bring back the 'pale khaki' --and perhaps even introduce a 'Nantucket red' or some such. I will buy 10x alone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChinoDude Love These!
I was a D3 wearer for years. I tried the Standard LL Chino and was swimming in them, I called LL and they told me these Classic fit were what I wanted and gladly took my return and I ordered these. I will never go back! While these are a bit roomier than my old D3 they have the room where you need it, they fit a slim guy very well and have all day long comfort. The material is a step heavier then the D3s (read as upgrade!). And they all seem to be treated with some sort of scotch guard stuff. I have dribbled coffee and water and it beads up and just rolls off. No cuff issues either like others have had. Casual work-wear I actually like to put on in the morning, who'd-a-thunk it! Thanks LL
How about a grey color guys?

Rated 5 out of 5 by PickyRicky Great, so far.
Excellent quality fabric. Soft and yet wrinkle resistant. LL Bean has perfected this one. It's a no-brainer purchase for chinos.
BTW, buyer beware. Your jean size is NOT your chino/dress pant size. I take a 34'' in jeans, but a 36'' in dress pants (talking about waist size for those who still haven't had their morning coffee).

Rated 3 out of 5 by blackbeltPA Disappointed
I will start out by saying that per LLBean's fantastic customer service, I am returning these and getting them replaced. My husband loves the fit and comfort of them.
However, I was terribly disappointed, especially with the Dark Khaki color that we ordered. We had them less than a year and the color started wearing off, as if they were garment dyed. Then the comb in his back pocket wore 2 holes right through! and the hem frayed.

Rated 2 out of 5 Pockets are "wrong"
The pockets in this are positioned so that your hands can't naturally fit into them. You need to uncomfortably reach behind you to reach into your pockets.
Also after wearing these for a day, despite them certainly being the correct size, I felt quite some discomfort. They seemed to strain my body in some hard to explain way. Overall not satisfied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeanSearchin Frayed Nerves
Great cut&fit, but POOR material. Cuffs fray quickly and wear spots show after limited washings. Poor button sewing. I've had NONE of these problems with near decade older Bean chinos I still wear! My wife has had similar issues with declining LL Bean Chino quality and won't buy more. Nevertheless, I recently bought 5 MORE pair, HOPING to keep them in rotation until Bean solves this problem. So many of your customers depend upon these pants for daily use and want to stay loyal to your company. Please return the loyalty and try to solve this ongoing quality issue. We need to know you are listening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by saturn1 Fits true to size
I put to much stock in reviews that read order smaller than you normally do. If the last time you ordered pants was 1980 don't tell people the sizing is off. They fit just as well as my size in any of the other brands I buy. Can't speak for the wear and tear, but they seem substantial enough to last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jason29 Nice, but inconsistent sizing. Need more colors
I have two of these pants, one about 11 months old and the other 6. Both are the exact same size (35/34) in different colors. One of them fits great. The second has a rise that is about 1 inch shorter. So I either have to wear them a bit low or deal with the uncomfortable "snugness"
Also, more colors would be great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by IvyClassic Smaller Waist Sizes Needed!
The pants are overall good value. Great cut and good material/construction for the money. Unfortunately I have to give them 3/5 stars because the vanity sizing on the waist is ridiculous.
On a tagged size 30" the waistband actually measures 31.5".
Desperately need a smaller waist size option, 28" would be great!
