Rated 1 out of 5 by NotHappyNow Pleated without elastic waist - Get it?
You offered similar lightweight chinos several years ago with a non elastic waist band. Please bring them back so I can purchase several pair and be happy for several more years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 28yearswithBean Bring back the original in pleated
I loved these pants and am happy to see they are back in flat front but these pleated ones have a really ugly elastic waste. I sent mine back and hope you will once again make pleated ones with a regular waste. I have two old pairs left that I take good care of because they still look good in my office before the weather turns cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drumbeaterman Please!!!!!!!!! make them in GRAY!!!!!! again!!!!!
After wearing these for 25 years or more, I can attest to their comfort level and durability. I refuse to believe that the person in charge of purchasing these for LL Bean cannot get them in GRAY anymore. That color , just behind Khaki, was the best seller and in the history of these pants in the CHINO , not the CARGO. Please , someone tell this employee to try and bring the GRAY back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by cpcguy Wash and IRON
Tropic Weight label says do not dry clean. Customer service says yes, it might harm the fabric. I've washed and then hung while damp but they really need IRONING, not just touch up. should be noted in the sales info. I wouldn't recommend them for $50 (or any price).

HAVE WORN THESE PANTS FOR YEARS. NO BETTER MATERIAL OR STYLE AVAILABLE FOR PLEATED PANTS THAT DON'T FEEL LIKE CARDBOARD. WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER PAIR UNTIL THE ELASTIC IS GONE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Builder68 Color choice
Bought these trousers some time ago and want to re-order. Unfortunately, the colors I selected are no longer offered: gray and sage green. Any plans to expand your color choices?

LL Bean keep their word. I bought the Tropic-Weight Chino Pants, Comfort Waist, Pleated Khaki colored about 8 months ago. My right seam in muy leg started coming undone 1 inch long. I shipped the pants for free to LL Bean and they fixed them for free. LL can be trused.
The pants are better than new.

Rated 2 out of 5 by phenixva not for me
The fabric seemed nice until I saw that the whole waistband in back was elastic. Not quite ready to wear elastic waisted pants so they are being returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NellsMom Cool, comfortable, and not restrictive
My husband LOVES these pants. He works in an office where the day-to-day outfit is khakis and a polo shirt. He said that these have been fantastic in the hotter weather. I'm back to get another pair. They may not be cheap, but they keep him comfortable.
