Rated 2 out of 5áby 1CT1 Unnatural Fit
I purchased these pants based primarily on the depicted item which shows a fit that is just loose, rather than conforming (trim). The pants received were not "natural" in appearance and can best be described as baggy.
The comfort waist is a near marvel of engineering , but is overly complex. The inner lighter elastic band is exposed and looks likely to fail too readily compared to the outer hidden band.
The pants might fit better if bought one (or two) sizes smaller than normal.

áby Professor3 Great Jeans... belt loop detached
I am in a wheel chair and find these jeans to be awesome. However, of the three pair I own, the last ordered pair had its belt loop detach. Being in the chair, I do not stress my clothes. May I please return this one of three pair because the belt loop was not sewn properly? Otherwise, I would order these again, and in fact did.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MimiTx Great jean!
I purchase them for my adult son who is in a wheelchair. We always have problems finding pants that fit with his sitting in the chair. The elastic in the waist band is perfect! Gives him a great fit without the discomfort of a belt.
Please continue offering these jeans!

Rated 2 out of 5áby LogLesDad One more chance
I love the fit of these jeans, but the wear did no meet my expectations. I am used to my jeans fraying at the cuffs due to my short legs, but this pair also had a hole form in the front of the jeans near the crotch area. I only had these jeans for 17 months when this happened. I am purchasing another pair because I loved the fit so much, but if they don't wear any better I won't be purchasing another pair.

Rated 2 out of 5áby CustomeReview Not the same.
I've been buying this model for several years. I agree with the comments that they seem to have become very "baggy" in the seat and thighs. Biggest frustration is durability as most recent purchases tend to wear at the top inside-most pocket edge within a year. You can see the fabric whiten after each washing and shortly after a hole develops right next to the pocket. I have even had one pair where the material tore on the leg within 6 months across the fabric, side to side. LLB has been good about replacing one pair when I brought this to their attention. May contact them about a pair that I just tore this weekend. Is it unreasonable for jeans that are worn 2-3 days of the week in an office environment to last longer than a year?
Maybe they have changed too but I had Levi's that would easily go 10 years with frequent usage. They never wore out in the seat.

Rated 2 out of 5áby JBT59 Built for freakish bodies
I ordered the 34 inch waist with the 30 inch inseam. When I put them on they were waaaaay too long! But the excessive length was not in the legs, which were spot-on perfect. Instead, the distance between the crotch and waistband was excessive. When the waistband was at my waist, the crotch was half way to my knees. When I raised the crotch to a natural level the inseam was perfect, but the waistband was up to my rib cage! Ridiculous! When I compared these to my other jeans, I found these LL Bean jeans were a full 2.5 inches longer from crotch to waist (12.5" vs 10"). This would account for several reviewers finding these jeans "baggy." Customer service later informed me that the so-called "natural fit" has a higher "rise" than most jeans, which was not explained in the product description. I wish they had told me that when I asked about sizing just before I ordered the product. So back they go, and I'm out the return shipping cost due to LL Bean's failure to accurately describe the fit. I'm exchanging them for regular Double L Standard Fit jeans. Too bad, because the elastic waistband was really comfortable and these jeans were otherwise very well made. Note to LL Bean designers: Men with normal bodies would like to have elastic waist jeans, too!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Tentlady Huge in seat and thigh
My husband has ordered these previously, but the fit is totally different. These are huge in the seat and thigh. Also the previous pair had elastic on each side which works so much better for him than the hidden expandable band. The white of the pocket show with the expandable band but the pocket lays flat with the band that just has elastic. Also, would like to see these in the crosshatch denim, much dressier look. But please don't put in the worn faded lines that so many jeans have.

Rated 2 out of 5áby kelson Did Bean change their vendor?
I have worn these jeans for years. I recently ordered two pair and they much larger in the seat and legs than any of my previous ones. Don't seem to a Natural cut at all, more like loose...very relaxed cut.

Very comfortable waist, but upper legs are humongous! Not one person asked likes the look.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Kmb615 the Fading is an issue
I have purchased many Jeans from Bean and have always been happy with the product. I like the waist band on these jeans but I believe the fading process weakend the jeans too much. within one wash I found that there were two holes forming on one leg and I also noticed that there were some white spots around the pockets that actually appear to be bleach marks - I am really hoping that this was a defective pair since I did like the look of the fade... I will be returning these and have ordered a different color of the same style.
But with any purchase of any product, I know that I will be happy in the end since LL Bean is a great company.
