Rated 3 out of 5 by Pbox I wish I could like these more, but I can't.
Let me start by saying that these are good-looking, well-fitting jeans. No question. They really do fit well and they have a true straight leg cut, unlike the Double-L jeans (which claim to be straight leg but are actually ridiculously tapered). Having said that, I have to also say that the denim of these jeans is most definitely of lower quality than the Double-Ls. Whereas the Double-L jeans are fairly heavy and more rugged, these are much thinner and possibly less durable (durability remains to be seen, I just got them).
LL Bean -- You have GOT to make the Double-L jeans in the cut of the 1912 jeans!

I think the jeans are well made and comfortable, but the front pockets are too narrow. I can't get my hands into the pockets, I do have big hands but never had any problems with any other pants I have owned to get my hands in the pockets. It is a real hassle, please redesign!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SWISSFRANK PREMIUM denim???
As far as I'm concerned there's nothing about this denim that even somewhat suggests "premium" quality. In fact, you responded to another review saying this fabric was not quite as heavy as the other jeans in your line-up. (Not QUITE? Not NEARLY!!!) Maybe you find no correlation between the weight of a fabric and its quality, but I do. I'm always willing to pay for premium quality, but strongly challenge your using such terminology in the advertising of these jeans. Let the buyer beware!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brettd Front Pockets are very small
Jeans look great and are made of very nice fabric but... I can't get my hands in the pockets.
I bought these to have a pair of more dressy jeans and I have loved all my past LLB jeans unfortunately these won't work. I'm a big guy and my mitts don't even come close to fitting. No retrieving keys or cell phones without a pair of tongs ;)
Back to the Double L's

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carlio Full-cut fit
What makes these jeans great is what they're not.
They're not made in a low-rise, slim-fit, crotch-crowding mall store style. They have a slightly longer rise, which is great for taller or longer-waisted men. They have wider-cut legs that allow for freedom of movement when hiking through the woods. And the leg openings are wide enough to easily fit over your boots, whether they're Bean boots, jump boots or cowboy boots.
I own two pairs of these in different colors, and they're definitely not hipster jeans. They're more of a classic sportsman's style, and they're made to last for years.
If you're shopping for something trendier, lower and slimmer, you might go for the Standard Fit or something from Bean's Signature line instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanS Not just BLUE jeans
Jeans are very comfortable and wear well. I like that LL Bean has been offering them in various colors. I've purchased the bleached canvas, the grey and the british khaki. I hope they continue to offer alternative colors to blue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RAMac Length not true
I own several pair of LL Bean Jeans and these arrived at least 1" to 1.5" longer than prior I have ordered/received. Could be these are "1912" and others were the normal but I should have read the reviews of recent (many others having same problem I did) so as to perhaps call them to get "true size". They are allowing free return and free reshipment of 2" shorter version and hope they...as I like the color and other overall fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by COmailorderer Poor fit
These are enormous jeans - very big through the legs and they pulled up to my navel. From the pictures on the web site they didn't look like they'd fit this way. The fabric was a bit thinner than I expected, too. They're on their way back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by coltsfan12 not what was expected
The 1912 jean is no comparison to the Double L. It is lighter in material and the size I normally order is way to big. I cannot wear these jeans in public because they are too baggy. It is as if they sent the wrong size. Terrible. Very disappointed that this poor of product came from LL Bean. LLB is my favorite place to purchase clothes from.
