Rated 5 out of 5 by Beachbum143 BEST CHINOS EVER
I bought a couple of pairs of the Favorite Fit, Plain Front and they fit so well, I bought another 4 pairs! The material is excellent and wrinkles very little even though the pants are 100% cotton. They wash very well and iron even better! Great great pant with nice fit and perfect length. I hope they never stop selling these or much less change the style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DislikesShopping Good Office Pants
I bought size 6 petite in the color "raw indigo" to wear in the office.
I'm 5'2'' 125 lbs
The color is a little bit like men's work uniform pants...but that could be my imagination.
The legs are a little too wide for my short stature.
They fit very well.
They're wrinkle resistant and the material looks and feels like it will wear well.
A good value, on sale for $22.50

Rated 2 out of 5 by drafh What has happened
I have worn these pants for years. They no longer fit like my older ones. I even went up a size thinking the sizing had messed up, but these pants still didn't fit. I'm not sure if LL Bean has changed manufacturers. I would just like to have my old pants back, but new.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Elisabeth44 Waist too tight, rise too high
For a "favorite fit" style, the rise was way too high. The pants were also tight around the waist. I'm disappointed. They will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine5637 LOVE these pants!
I'm so short, it's hard to find pants the right length. These are perfect. Will be ordering more.

I loved the raw indigo color, so I ordered a pair in my regular size, got them, tried them on -- the waist was fine, but the front was way too baggy and the rump was way too tight. Who is built that way? I am 5'3" and 125 pounds and where a size 6 petite. These will be going back, thank goodness for LLBean's return policy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RLinLA Bring back the Curvy Pleated Front Bayside Twill
Ever since LL Bean discontinued the Bayside Twill in the "Curvy Fit" cut with a Pleated Front (Wrinkle Resistant, NOT Comfort Waist), I have been unable to find a current style that fits me well. The discontinued item was #258559.
I tried these Favorite Fit pants, but I have to return them. The cut and the fabric are a rough fit indeed. Please bring back the "Curvy Fit" Pleated Front style! When I telephone LL Bean, the customer service reps say that they've heard similar requests from other customers. I'm not the only one who misses the Curvy Fit style. Please start selling them again! The older styles, which I think were Pleated Front Classic Fit were not bad either. None of the new styles fit well for me. So many of the new styles have a "comfort waist," but I'm looking for the non-elastic waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYCDi Love them, need updating
I have been wearing these pants for years--I know, because in old photos going back 20 years, I'm wearing this same model of pants! They are comfortable, easy to care for and long-wearing. (Don't worry--I do replace them every 3-4 years!). But pant styles have changed over the years, and I'm looking for a slimmer fit, esp in the leg, with the same quality and durability as these. The Easy-Stretch pants come very close, and I love these as well, but their lighter weight makes them impractical in the cooler months. Please consider developing a more modern (slimmer) fit of your Bayside Twills that will take me through fall and winter. Thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBNY Baggy and sloppy
This pant is very baggy in the legs and they sag with wear, giving it a sloppy and matronly appearance. Both pairs that I ordered have been returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peartree Too much material in hips and thighs
I am 5'6" and 135 lbs. I normally wear a size 8. I carry any extra weight in the "saddlebag" area and I normally don't mind a wider leg. However, these pants are not a flattering fit for me. I did order a size 10 which was too big all over but I was worried the waist would be tight after reading the reviews.
The rise was also higher than expected and came to 1/2 inch below my belly button. A bit too old school for me. The leg length was very good with a bit extra for a wee heel and the fabric was very nice.
An 8 would have fit but the hips would have been too wide making me look much heavier than I am. If you have a very curvy figure (ie. a small waist with big hips) these pants might work for you.
