Rated 4 out of 5 by WorkingMother3 Nice basics but corners cut thru the years
I like this fit when wearing with shirts tucked in as well as out. I wish the pockets were larger like LL Bean use to be known for. The legs are not as wise as the classic higher waist pants or comfort waist. The waist is larger than the classic waist thus I order these down a size. I also wish the seams on the inside were banded like they use to be. I have been ordering LL Bean pants for 20+ years. They are nice but more corners have been cut through the years. I have also had to return a few to get my size as cuts have slightly changed. I have LL Bean pants that all fit the "same" or similar with tags with sizes posted 10 to 14. Overall, I would still buy them for better than many brands for basic pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Platinumgranny Straight leg is wider than before.
I've been wearing LLBean's Bayside Twills for years and years and the legs have never been severely tapered. But I was surprised to see how wide the leg is on this new pair. Compaired to the last pair, bought a couple of years ago, the leg is about an inch wider. I was hoping that some of the alternate styles might have a slightly tapered leg, but they don't, at least the product details do not indicate they are any different.

I'm so disappointed - I've bought these pants in the past, but the legs on these are so huge! LL Bean is always my first stop when I need casual clothes, but I'm going to have to find some different slacks, darn it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NCRetiree2012 Change in fit?
I have ordered these pants before in a size 8 petite, which fit perfectly, and now there seems to be change! Overall, the fit was looser, and I did not care for the wider legs. I had the dry cleaners put in a crease, but they still looked too wide. I am hoping that washing them in hot water will shrink them a bit!

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 :(
