Rated 5 out of 5 by JillOhio Finally, denim that fits
I have tried on more jeans than I can count in the past couple of months and none fit. They all have big waists but I have a small waist and bigger hips. I took a chance on ordering these and they fit perfectly. I just got them today so we'll see how they fit after washing. The legs and thigh are a bit baggy but I can live with that to have a pair of jeans that I can actually wear. I would also like to see more colors as I need more pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lakeknitter good quality, waist good, legs baggy
The quality of construction is good and the pants fit well in the waist and hip, However, below the hip they are very baggy. When I sit down, they pull across the thighs and have several wrinkles going across the thighs due to this pulling.
I also purchased the lakewashed classic fit pants in the same size 8 and these fit very well with a slimmer cut leg, very comfortable. I feel good and feel that they look good on me.
Would only recommend this pant if a person has heavier thighs and needs the extra fabric in that area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanshopaholic2 Somewhat disappointing
I love the fit of the pants, rise, length and waist. However, the pants leg is much wider than it appears to be in the catalog picture. I would like a slightly more tapered look in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by caminoista Should have listened to other reviewers
Why did I ignore reviewers who mentioned how wide the legs were?? Are we back to bell-bottoms? I thought briefly about trying to take them in (they're too wide all the way down) but, given the price, it's not worth paying more. These go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gills75 Great Pants, very comfortable
These pants are awesome! I have such a hard time finding pants that fit. I really do wish they came in more colors! I would definitely be buying more if they did!

Please get more colors. These are my new "favorite" Bean pants. Navy and gray or green would be good additional colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gruffydd Careful about length!
These are possibly the most comfortable pants I have ever worn but I do have one caveat: be very careful about the length you order and how you wash them. Shrinkage also seems to vary by colour. I have these pants in denim, gray, khaki and black. After two washings in cold water, hung to dry (do NOT use dryer on these pants), the black ones are so short they are unwearable. the other three are still okay -- barely. I ordered these in regular length, not petite, even though I am only 5'2" tall, so that indicates a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RomeosMom Comfortable fit
I love these pants and have ordered several pair in the past. I'm very hard to fit and the light stretch and elastic waistband are very comfortable. The pants look very nice and hold shape well. The only problem I've had is that the dark colored pants fade over time after several washings, but that's probably to be expected with the cotton fabric. Recently, I was disappointed that they were out of my size in the regular length. I ordered the petite length which I thought might fit since I am 5'2", but the petite length was too short. I would recommend ordering the regular length even if you normally wear a petite length.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nancyquilter terrible odor
When I took these pants out of their plastic bag, I was hit with an awful chemical odor. Was it caused by a fumigated overseas shipping container? Or a strong petrochemical dye in the fabric? I did not recognize this smell. I quickly returned the pants to their bag and shipped them back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by readerwalker Comfy, but....
Waist fits nice on me (size 6, 120 lbs., 5'7"). Had to look carefully to figure out where the elastic was in the waistband, perhaps black made it harder to spot, but not noticeably elasticized. Had to get MT length as in the past when buying regular length (30") have found them to be a tad short, barely measuring out at 29-1/2", so had to return regular length. I bought these for travel and as a casual alternative to jeans and because of the legs being so baggy on me (and I have fairly muscular legs), I would NOT wear them as dress pants. Ordinarily I would have returned trousers with "clown pants" legs. I tried washing in hot, drying in hot, but no shrinkage, at least no decrease in leg width. And when you look at the women wearing these pants in the photos, they don't look as baggy as I find them. They don't really need ironing, but I iron anyway and I have also tried putting a crease in them, but for some reason the seams don't line up on this pair - really odd - so after next wash won't bother to put in a crease. I said "yes" to recommending the pants, because other than my annoyance at the wide legs (and I wasn't looking for skinny pants), I find them comfortable and will just have to be careful not to wear them on a blowy day, lest the legs flap in the breeze!
