Rated 5 out of 5áby Fdzgirl Excellent Travel Pants
I purchased these pants to be my travel pants while on a recent tropical vacation destination. I was thoroughly impressed at how well they fit my curves yet the fabric was substantial and not clingy. I felt very comfortable even when the temperatures ranged from 45? at one location and changed to 90? at my travel location. They never rumpled or wrinkled or snagged. After giving them a thorough trial on this vacation I've decided to use them as my work pants and I'm ordering two more pairs.

Rated 3 out of 5áby FirstQuality A little disappointed
in my last pair of black straight leg perfect fit pants. The fabric definitely has a more slippery, synthetic feel to it and a more shiny look than in the past. I have many pairs of these pants in all of the colors, from several years back to the present, and there have been variations in the fabric before, but none that bothered me so much that I returned the pants. This time I did return them. I'm so pleased with Bean's products across the board, I'm sure this fabric issue can and will be corrected, and soon - since I've found that when customers talk, LLBean does indeed listen. These are just about the only pants I wear and own, they fit my every need for my lifestyle, so I will wait a bit to order another couple pairs of black straight legs, hoping that by then Bean will have addressed and corrected the problem. Otherwise, I still love these pants, I can't say it enough! Thanks, LLBean, for listening.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Lefkaditsa A tad too baggy and synthetic for my taste
I've found the evolution of LLBean's "Perfect Fit" pants line interesting, and a bit disappointing. My first pair were the "boot cut" variety, and I found the black to be the most flattering, with the fabric being cottony enough to wear them in summer. Last year, I went with the "original" pants, which are, thankfully, closer cut and more trendy (leaving the boot-cuts looking dated), yet the fabric on the "original" seemed less cottony, more synthetic, so much so that they are downright hot on warmer days. My last purchase was this style, the so-called "straight-leg" model. I found them a bit baggy, shiny, more synthetic, and a little scratchy. They're good for work, and best if I can wear a long, behind-covering cardigan, since somehow the back view and fit of these isn't the best. Of all the "Perfect Fit" pants, my faves remain the originals.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Gimlimom Pleasantly surprised
I have a tough time finding pants to fit my short/ wide waist, long-rise, long-legged figure. Finally decided to try these in medium/ medium-tall and was pleasantly surprised. The flat stretch waist stays put and the rise is long enough for me; the pockets lie flat and don't stick out or add bulk; they kept their shape all day; and --perhaps most wonderful of all--they did not shrink after washing/ drying. The fabric is pretty casual, but they still look neat and not sloppy. I'll be ordering more colours.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Potter12 Favorite pants, wrong fabric!
I have worn these pants for many years. I love the comfort, fit, and as an art teacher, I really like the deep pockets. The four pair I've purchased (or received as a gift) ALL have snagged, creating holes. I called LL Bean to register my complaint, but I like them so much, I didn't return them. I use them for yard work, dog park, etc. I'm happy to see others have made this flaw known, because im sure LL Bean will fix the problem. Way too much Lycra! I'll wait for a while to order a couple more pairs.

Rated 2 out of 5áby karmarex Perfect fit pants are not so perfect anymore:(
I have bought these pants for years. They use to be a nice heavy cotton blend. They were the perfect length and rise in a medium tall for me. Now the material is a thin lycra/nylon type fabric, the rise is longer, the legs longer and wider. I had my original perfect pants for years...the next time I ordered them the quality had gone down. They got holes very easily. Now I just received my third go around and they are even worse than the last time I ordered. I washed them thinking it would help but it didn't. Wearing them today and they are baggy at the bottom and so high waisted it rolls over when I sit. I guess I am going to have to start looking elsewhere for the "perfect fit" pant. I have cats and don't dare let them on my lap with this type of cheap, thin material.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Bojanglesgeorge Poor product
I have bought these pants many times. I just returned my last order...too much Lycra maybe...not the same cotton look and the all elastic waistband fits terribly. Bring back the original fabric and smooth waistband front with elastic back and I will purchase forever. Loved these pants. Why did you change them?

Rated 1 out of 5áby LLBNY Perfect??? Not really...
Stretches out and droops, including the rises. Too short for the average height. The pocket bags catch in the fabric, creating bulges. Disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MomfromNiskayuna Petite Perfect Fit Pant
I have bought these pants for many years now. At one time, they were a perfect fit. The petite XS was a perfect length. The fit was good for a petite woman size 4 or 6. I am 5' 1" tall #short#.
Now, when I buy them, they are too long by a couple inches. The fabric seems different - meaning it doesn't hold up to stressors as well. For example, my cat often sits in my lap. This was never a problem. But the cat's claw caught the fabric. I unhooked it gently, but it still created an actual hole - 1/2 inch or so - near the knee. So, while the pants look nearly new, these two pairs have holes in them.
Perfect Fit pants tend to fade rather quickly. I love how black they are to start with, but they end up being a dull gray-ish black after a while.
I still buy them because they are very comfortable and they fit better than most petite pants. It is very hard to find petite pants for someone smaller than a petite 6.
At one point, I lost weight and became a size 0 or 2 and the Perfect Fit XS was way too loose on me.
I do think the price is a bit high for what you are getting - a cotton stretch pant that fades.
But, I like the cut - not too tight, not too loose, the pockets, the fact that they come in petite, and that they are comfortable.
As other people have mentioned, sometimes the sizing is inconsistent. I have several pairs all in Petite XS black. Some fit me, some are tight, some are loose, some are slightly too long, some are just right in length. I wish they didn't fade, but I guess that's what happens with things made of cotton.
