Rated 1 out of 5 by Picky19 Huge mistake
To my dismay, LL Bean only offers Bayside Twill pleated slacks with the poorly designed "comfort waist." I have a pair of "comfort waist." I wore them twice. Never again. Unlike the non-elastic, pleated version, the elastic insert results in a sloppy, frumpy fit. It does not fit like the classic LL Bean styling. Please bring back the non - elastic pleated version. Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LittleDutchGirl Bring back the original pleated bayside pants!!!
These comfort waist pleated pants are awful!! They do not fit well, especially in the back and the elastic adds the appearance of extra weight. The original pleated bayside pants were perfect. What happened to them??? Please bring them back. I have shopped at LLBean for 35 years and this is the first time I have been disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Histeach Great pants but need new colors!
I have worn these pants for years and years and they wear like iron. They wash beautifully, stay pleated, look crisp even after a long day and fit me perfectly. My ONLY complaint involves the colors offered, or the lack thereof. I am so tired of navy, black and the very similar and bland stone and khaki. Once in a blue moon they add a new color- like this fall was raisin brown- which was a very strange color indeed!. Please bring back loden green, chocolate brown and perhaps a really dark tan- maybe even a hunter green as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joaniejoanie MORE COLORS!
I have at least two pairs of each color---they are about all I wear for office casual. How about more colors? I love the new raisin, but how about bring back more sizes in olive? What about shades of charcoal, very dark green, dark brown, etc. Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anothertraveler These pants couldn't be any uglier
The comfort waist is not hidden so it adds weight to you. How come old pleated front LL pants fit great but the new style looks and feels awful. Why can't LL just make the original pleated front bayside twill. I've read several bad reviews of these comfort waist pants...there's a reason for the bad reviews. And the comfort waist isn't even that comfortable while it's looking bad. I've been buying from LL for 36 years and I am not amused.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OutOfHere hate the comfort waist
I am a great fan of your original Bayside pleated pants. However, I don't like this version. The single pleat front looks nice. The elastic, gathered back looks dreadful. My butt looks huge, as though a diaper is stuffed in there. I won't buy more of this style. I wish that you would bring back the regular, non-comfort waistband.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Localgardener Poor quality & fit of previous owned slacks.
Have bought many pairs of these slacks and were greatly pleased. Just ordered Black and Raw Indigo, size 16. They used to have more room, better cut and be more comfortable. Both pair you have to struggle to button waist button. Raw Indigo has 7 belt loops and Black pair only has 5 belt loops. All should have the same quality of craftmanship. Would return them but going on trip and need them. Hope in the future they only get better and not worse.
