Rated 5 out of 5 by busyhandsnana Delightfully soft!
Just what I've been looking for! Smooth, cuddly cotton(reminds me of fine wool). Nicely lined. Versatile color. Perfect for going out to dinner on a cold New England weekend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mejoan different fit
I have three pair, so they must suit my purpose. The waist on all three differ in size by about an inch although they are all size 10.
Mighty good feel here in Virginia this winter and I do wear them to work. However I am an unstylish over 70 year old. Warmth and comfort are my goal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Violet Downsizing
Having read the other reviews, I ordered these pants in both 8, my usual size and in 6. The 6 worked just fine. Do want to mention that they are heavier than I thought, and fully lined, so they will be winter pants for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by picklecreek Great fabric, fit didn't work for me
Unfortunately, I have to return these. The fabric is great, pretty herringbone, soft with a nice drape and fine lining. They look well sewn. BUT, the adjustable waist is for those who need it to adjust BIGGER, not any smaller. These fit me fine in the hips, but have a huge gap in the back waist. Not designed for my shape, which is a porportionatey smaller waist to hips ratio, I was really hoping the adjustable feature would take care of this, and it does not. : ((

Rated 2 out of 5 by kdc34515 Not what I expected
I ordered these pants to have a nice dress pant to wear with a sweater. I was disappointed in how it looks when you put it on. The pockets gape open and the legs are like " elephant legs"--not attractive at all. I expected better quality from LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bananabird thick, warm, but get the hidden comfort waist
I bought this in light camel herringbone a couple of years ago (color not available now). It washes well, no problem with shrinkage. I tried on the one without the comfort waist feature in the store, and was horrified that it gapes way out in the back. The one with the comfort waist fits smoothly all over. Well worth the extra cost. I am ordering another pair in a different color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RJCinteriordesign not stylish
I am 35 years old and place equal importance on comfort and style. The comfy waistband sounded great but the pants have such a high waist, they really aren't meant for anyone under 50. nice looking fabric, but just not as stylish as I like.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Watussi Pockets Gaped at Hips and Too Hot for me
They fit but the pockets gaped open at my hips and you could see the black fabric inside - not attractive. If you are going to do the hidden waist so that the waistline expands, then the pocket material should be the same as the pants. If I would have ordered a larger size they would have been huge as the legs were big anyway. Also, I didn't realize these pants were fully lined. I notice it was buried in the text. This is an important point for me and I might have noticed it if it were a bullet in the description - just a suggestion. I wouldn't have bought them if I had picked up on it.
I did love the fabric and they are well made. I am sad to have to return them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bananabird wonderful winter pants
I have a waist, and it is hard to find pants nowadays that fit without the waistband gaping in the back. Clothing manufacturers are adapting to the obesity epidemic, and normal-shaped people are being left behind. These pants are perfect. The fabric is cushy and thick and wonderful for walking to work in cold weather, but since it is cotton it is still comfortable inside too. The hidden stretchy waist is great (I hate the kind that gathers at the back). It washes and dries fine. I got a light camel pair at the store, and I'm looking for more colors now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by gardenbeth Might work for some figures
Tried these on in the store. Waist fit fine. Way too much fabric in the hips and thighs, so didn't work for me. I wish it had - the fabric and feel were great.
