Rated 5 out of 5 by oxford77 Great pants for work
I work in a rough factory environment. Work pants are provided but they are uncomfortable and made of primarily polyester. These have been my "go-to" work pants for about the last 4 years. They are all I buy. It's particularly nice to be able to get pants in a petite length so I don't have to hem them. They wear well. Eventually I just toss them when they start to fray and buy new ones. I also have a couple of pairs I keep for "good" and don't wear to work. They dress up nice for church activities with a good shirt or sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by comfyclothescustomer perfect pants
I just bought 2 pairs of bayside twills, original fit comfort waist (navy and black) . Very comfortable and proper length. Through the years my Bayside twill purchases have gone from size 10 to 12 and now 14. LL Bean makes the pants that suit me perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wildernesswoman inconsistent fit
Very disappointed. I have been buying Bayside Twill pants for years and they wear well but don't last forever. I recently lost weight. My current size 18's were falling off my hips so I bought size 16 original fit (my current size 18 pants don't have a fit name in them). I can't even get the size 16's closed.
I have an older pair of size 16's (Curvy fit) which fit nicely but are getting tired...and I could not find this fit style...only Original, Classic and something I don't want.
A business which relies on mail order REALLY should have consistent sizing. I have no idea what to do now as 18 is too large and 16 too small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Banky hate elastic!
The elastic in the back is very noticeable! The front pleat looks great, it's so hard to find pants that are NOT flat-front. Could not cover up elastic with a belt, so had to return it. Can't find any pants pleated in front with belt-loops, not everyone likes elastic!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TXShopper89 Used to be better before elastic waist
I used to LOVE the pleated, original fit slacks. They are the only ones that fit my small waist, large hips, and long torso. However, for some reason, LL Bean decided to discontinue them several years ago. I rejoiced when they brought them back because I had been unable to buy ANY slacks during the intervening years and my old ones were frayed. So, I bought a few of each color and assumed they would be around forever again. Unfortunately, now LL Bean has decided we all want an elastic waist. This is not even CLOSE to 'subtle' and makes my butt appear huge and 'wrinkly'. The lines just don't look flattering. Well, I have no choice but to buy these unattractive slacks because I still can't find anything else that fits me. However, at 48 years old, I don't really want to go to work and try to dress professionally while wearing slacks that look like a 1970's older women's polyester pantsuit. I just wish the manufacturers at LL Bean would stick with the classics that gave them the reputation they have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elaineinOP The pants are a perfect fit!
I bought these because they have the comfort waist. If I gain 5 lbs. it goes right to my waist and the comfort waist takes care of that.
My closet if full of LLBean clothing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mbrkelley Good Pants - Have Been Better
I've been buying and wearing these pants for many years and have them in many colors. They've been great and last a long time. However, they changed from a poly/cotton blend to an all-cotton blend, and now the pants feel a lot thicker and more uncomfortable because of that. My replacement all-cotton black pants now pick up every piece of lint there is, whereas my poly/cotton blend ones did not do this; they just felt so much softer and thinner. The quality of these pants is usually very good. However, I've just had to send my new pair of pants back for a replacement as the cuffs have already frayed after only a few months' wear , , . and they aren't dragging on the ground. LL Bean is great about sending replacements at no charge and really seems to care about the quality of their products.

Fit well, comfortable and good colors available. I've replaced them many times and just wish the bottoms didn't fray so quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Petunia82 Great pants. Just not for me.
Too bad I had to return these pants. The pleats were just not right for me. Otherwise, no issues.
