Rated 3 out of 5 by TomboyinHighheels They are basic pants
I have two pair of the Bayside capri's in the Favorite fit and they are spot on, but the chinos not so. The overall quality of the pants is great and what we expect from L.L. Bean, but the Favorite Fit is not so flattering in pants. The waist is OK but the rise is a little high and the legs are wide, not boot cut just wide from the hips down. The fabric is somewhat stiff, even after a few washings, so that there isn't much give in the waist & seat. If I had tried these on in a store I would probably have passed on them, but for now they're OK as basic work attire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vlntyn1 love these!
i was concerned at first with the "barbie" size zipper but they fit slightly below the waist and are very flattering. i ordered a 6 and a 4 for a baggier look with the 6 and a fitted look for the 4. i love the true straight leg as i am 5'3", 123 lbs and taper always makes me feel like a pear! will definitely order more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by semiloyalcustomer tailored comfort
I had not bought LLB pants in a while so I tried 4 different khakis. I kept these 12 M/T Bayside Twills. Nice tailored look but still entirely comfortable. 98% cotton 2% stretch fabric looks the same as the 100% cotton but gives a little. At 5'7 1/2", 155# the 12 M/T fit me nicely. Love the Medium tall option. I'll be getting some more of these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mirandamc Gigantic in the thighs
Let me start by saying that I have large, athletic thighs for my size. Usually when I buy pants, if they fit in the waist then they're too tight in the thighs, and if they fit in the thighs then they're too tight in the waist. These pants ballooned over my thighs while they fit my waist. I could grab a big handful of fabric. Yikes. I'm sad because it's impossible to find a decent pair of khakis these day that aren't matchstick thin through the thighs and calves. These went to the opposite extreme. Nice quality but styling was a complete non-starter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LivesBayArea Poor Fit; Bring Back Curvy Fit
I ordered different sizes of these Original Fit pants hoping to discover a pair that fit as well as the discontinued Bayside "Curvy Fit" style. Sadly, these were returned as pants were way too baggy in legs and tight and high in the waist. I wear a size 8 petite but ordered size 8s, 10s & 12s in search for a comfortable fit. PLEASE bring the "Curvy Fit" style back! Until then, will shop else wear :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmadeusMozart Great quality
I ordered these pants in size 4 regular. I loved the way they looked when I opened the package. They are very well made and the quality of material and the khaki color are great. I usually wear a size 2 in pants, but these pants do not come in that size. Well, I tried size 4, but while they fit fine in the waist and seat the hip and thigh area were way too large. So I had to return them.
I do hope that LL Bean will offer these pants in size 2 in the future. I will be first in line to buy them.
Because of their quality, I do highly recommend them. Perhaps other customers will not have the same sizing problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jane939 Leg width issues
I loved the quality of the pants, but did not like the width of the legs. I ordered the straight leg version and they were to wide for my tastes. I like comfortable clothes, but not baggie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LMVT Legs way too wide
I'm 5-1 and 120lb. I'm short, with a proportionally average, muscular build.
I ordered size 6 petite.
The fit of the waist was perfect. Leg length was perfect. However, the pant legs were so incredibly wide I could have fit both of my legs in each one! They looked like balloon pants. Disappointing. They didn't look "a little too roomy" they looked ridiculously unwearable.
I hope LLBean revises the cut of these pants,
(I tried the same model in another color thinking maybe it was just that particular pair that was cut wrong, but it wasn't) Bummer.
