Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat1111 Bring the back pleats without comfort waist
I am surprised at your decision to discontinue the pleats on original and other fits. These are my go to pants. I love the way the pleats dress up the pants for work! Please bring them back. If you want to improve them, lose the big elastic comfort waist in the back and just consistently make a slightly looser regular waist. Biggest problem you had was inconsistent waist fit from one pair to another. Pleated bayside twill cords and khakis are the best. Don't give up on them!

My 90 year old mother has been wearing these pants for years. Every color. She is very particular and hates the comfort waist.
Please don't discontinue these pants. These are the only pants I have found that actually fit her. She's a size 8 petite and very hard to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdlandMom I must have these! Please bring 'em back!
I have been wearing the Original Fit Pleated Bayside Twill Pants with regular waist (not the ridiculous elastic waist) several times a week for many years and they are perfect. I dress them up, I dress them down, I wear them to work almost every day. I have them in every color, and two pairs in the best colors. I absolutely depend on this wardrobe staple and I am furious that they are no longer available. I'm in my 50's and will not wear the frumpy "comfort waist." What were you thinking?? Please bring back the pleated twills with regular waist!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SherryM Bring back original Pleated Bayside twills!!!
This is a sad day...losing a true all round fashion basic on two fronts.
I've worn these original pleated twills EVERY DAY for several decades...LOVE THEM. The loss of this styling and the khaki color is devastating. Khaki is one of the most versatile colors out there. It goes with almost every other color and looks good year round. PLEASE rethink this decision and bring back the original pleated twills and the khaki color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by neckylooksha you are kidding!!!!!
I am in absolute disbelief that these pants(Pleated version) are being discontinued. I just received the plain front version and HATE them. They do not fit my shape nearly as well as the pleated ones and the material is MUCH THINNER. I am so disappointed; I could always rely on LL Bean to have pants that fit me. Sad day for me and others too.
Please bring them back!!!!!!! I love the pleated, regular waist band version. Have now tried plain front and comfort waist-no good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NJLoyalBeanShopper Please bring back Bayside Twill Pleated Front
Like many other reviewers, I have worn the Bayside Twill Original/Curvy fit pleated front pants for many, many years. I wear them to work 4 days a week and have them in all the colors. I need to replace them because they are fraying at the hem and waist. I am very frustrated because I can no longer purchase the only pants that I wear to work. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the Bayside Twill Original/Curvy fit pleated front WITHOUT the comfort waist. I have 2 pairs with the comfort waist only because I needed replacements. I do not like the feel or look of the elastic back. I tried the plain front/regular waist and they do not work with my narrower waist and wider hips so I returned them. Please bring back the only pants that worked for my figure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beaner22 Can't believe it
I cannot believe--you are discontinuing these pants? I have been waiting for the Olive Green to come back, now, I can't buy Khaki or blue anymore! Oh, man. These are my favorite pants, and this was the only place I found that I could fit correctly...now, I am very disappointed. Please bring them back, please.

Please do not discontinue these pants! These are the only pants I buy. The fit and length are perfect. I will no longer have a real reason to shop LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ccustomer Pleated Original Bayside Twills - Pls bring back!!
I have been buying the Pleated Original Bayside Twills in petite 8 for 20+ years; they are the only pants I wear and they fit well. I have purchased any remaining pants I could find in my size this year in light of your discontinuing the product. I will not wear the pleated pants with the comfort waist! PLEASE BRING BACK THE PLEATED ORIGINAL BAYSIDE PANTS --- otherwise you'll be losing me as a loyal customer..... Pants are not the only items I buy, but if that incentive is gone, I have no need to buy your other items....

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFillsMyCloset Please do not discontinue these pants!
I love this style of pants and I really hope you don't discontinue them. I do not like the "comfort waist" pants because I don't like having an elastic band at my waist line that can't be covered up with a belt, plus they don't fit the same as the original fit. I love the pleated style. Please don't discontinue!!!
