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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Countrydogwalker Comfortable Pants
This style is great for the curvy figure because the waist fits a smaller waist and they are loose enough in the hips. I'm not a big fan of pleats unless they are stitched down but I ordered these slacks because curvy styles were discontinued and now I'm disappointed that this style is also discontinued. I noticed you now have pleated with the elastic waist. I tried those on in the store and they look terrible. Now that looser pants are coming back in style I don't understand why you discontinued these and the curvy and the wide leg jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Divingwright Please keep the Original Fit Bayside Twill Pleated
I have been buying these pants for years. Practically the only pants I wear anymore. Discontinuing these and switching to a comfort waist will keep me from buying them anymore. Having to go through another discontinuation of an older item is really a big pain. Please bring these pants back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sheltiemom Really miss when fabric was a blend!
Really, really love these pants. But very much miss when the fabric was a blend, 50% cotton & 50% polyester. The fabric was so soft, with a silky feel. I still have several old pairs that I can't bear to part with. I also feel they were more comfortable to wear, and cooler in the hot weather. Please bring back the original pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by assistant Pleated Original Bayside Twills - Please KEEP!!
I tried to order more of the Original Fit Pleated Bayside Twill pants for work yesterday and found out that they have been discontinued - AGAIN!!! They were brought back by popular demand and now we have to lose them again? I ordered as many as I could before they run out but I am very, very unhappy that LL Bean's marketing department is doing this. No one wants to wear an elastic waist pant. I am in my 50's and love these stylish pants. What are you thinking? Please reconsider your business plan and think of us; the customer...I have been a customer for over 20 years.
