Rated 1 out of 5 by DekeMoro Disappointing
The fabric seems quite coarse for a dressier chino. The zipper is shorter than average. After wearing them twice, the cuffs have come unsewn. Not satisfactory - not up to Bean's usual quality.

I recently ordered 2 pair of Tropical weight chino pants comfort fit plain front pants that I love. So I ordered the wrinkle free dress chinos natural fit hidden comfort plain front. They came on thursdayMay 5,2016. They did not even look like dress pants. Material was coarse, too big in seat and legs. Looked nothing like the picture. I would like to think you had sent me the wrong pants,but that probably isn't true. Joe

I have been wearing the Dress Chinos for years and have always been pleased with the pants. My wife has appreciated the fact they came out of the dryer "ready to wear".
I just ordered a new pair of the dark khaki and they are not "wash and wear". They were removed from the dryer while it was still tumbling but they could not be worn without being ironed. That did not go over very well with my wife. Obviously they are different material than has been used in the past and do not have the same quality. Thankfully LL Bean has a good return policy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by StewartW If I could only keep them hemmed...
Bought three pairs of these pants. After about a month, the hems began coming out. Eventually came out of all three pairs. I took them to a professional tailor and paid to have them rehemmed. Several weeks later, the hems are again coming out. I am 53 years old and have never had this experience with pants before. I am a college professor, so it's not as though they get rough use. (I can vouch for other reviewers' comments about the wideness of the legs too.) I buy a lot of merchandise from Bean, but this was my first experience with their pants, and I suspect it will be the last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BingoMan Short fly zipper
I have purchased these pants for years. For some reason, the fly zipper has been shortened in the last year or so, which makes it more awkward to use for its purposes. I get the same relaxed fit and therefore waist to inseam length as always, but a short fly. I have compared to older LL Bean trousers of same style, and fly is most definitely shortened.

Pants are great with comfort waist but as my daughter says the legs are So wide it looks like I will fly away. Pant legs are much wider than most that I have

Rated 3 out of 5 by pabuckhunter why split front pocket
I buy a lot of Bean clothing but was reluctant to buy these pants because the last Bean dress pants I bought had split front pockets.The quality of these pants is up to LL Bean standards, however, I cannot understand why anyone would make a pant with a split front pocket. It is very hard to get items out of the right pocket with them being split like they are. I will not buy these pants again without verifying that they have changed the pockets.

Too long and wide in legs - material too heavy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AuroraKev Long and baggy
Very baggy in back. They seem to do the inseam about an inch longer than expected. You need to specify a specific inseam length, I hope that does not mean they are not returnable, as they are way to big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TooShortTooFat button down flaps
Come out of dryer ready to wear, Look very nice and feel great. I don't like the button down flaps on the rear pockets. I find them hard to unbutton. Also I can't get my change out of the little change pocket within the right pocket. I sewed it shut on one pair. On another pair I sewed the bottom so the change pocket was less deep. That has helped. Some of the problem may be my fingers don't work as well as they used to. So, my fingers are 82 years old and with the problems mentioned I still LOVE these pants. I have two pair, different colors.
