Rated 1 out of 5 by wstamand Changes not comfortable
I have been wearing the classic fit bayside for years. This years style really was a bad change. The pants are running small and they are now too narrow in the hip thigh area. I'm just not comfortable sitting in them all day.

Love these pants. They need to make them in more colors. Easy care (no iron). I can wear them for several days and evenings when we are traveling and they hold up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuiltB Slacks that fit my curves
Size 8-10 waist and size 12 hips make buying slacks a challenge for me. While I miss LLB's curvy fit version of these slacks, this will be a good substitute. I don't tuck my tops in so the waistband's stretchiness doesn't show. I expect these will hold up as well as the black slacks I ordered last year, which have been laundered many times and still look new. Not too heavy and certainly not flimsy. These may not be the most fashion forward garment, but they are just what I'm looking for in basic, casual slacks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by henrii2 Hazardous to one's health
Before I ordered these pants, I counted how many LLBean pants I owned - 10 prs- all size 14 med/tall. I have them in corduroy and Bayside Twill, in many different colors. THIS pair of 14 M/T was the most ill fitting pants I have ever tried on. Perhaps they were marked the wrong size?
I spent 5 minutes trying them on, re-packaged them and drove to the PO. When the PO lady asked me if I was sending anything hazardouse, I said yes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ladyrver Why no classic fit with regular waist
I have worn Bayside Twills for years. Now can't buy a pair with a regular waist in classic fit. Hidden comfort does not work if you have a slightly smaller waist. Pulls looser as you wear them a d the extra thickness at the sides of the waist is uncomfortable. Another style change for the worse!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Swim4ever poorly engineered
Waist uneven -ok in back; too high in front. Fine if standing. Can't wear in public if have to sit: front rides up and puckers, back pulls down. Purchased stone and indigo, colors dull. Couldn't find "regular waist" option - only this comfort waist that I don't need. Too bad. Disappointed! Have a pair of bayside twill, stone colored, classic fit, regular waist that I've been wearing for ten years. Still look good, just a little worn at the hems. Wanted a fresh pair for an upcoming conference. Will be wearing my ten year old "tried and trues" worn hems and all. LL Bean, please return to your former quality standards. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lkbird Can't find the write fit!
Reading the reviews about the fit reminds me that we are all uniquely shaped. I'm 5'5' and 130 lbs with a little bit of "curve". If I look at the sizing chart I should wear a 12 (but in most stores I wear an 8 or 6). I ordered a 12 and 10 in the classic and traditional fits last year and they were huge so I returned them. I just ordered this in 8 without elastic waste. The waste is perfect as are the upper hips but the thighs are huge compared to most "straight leg" pants I wear. So still don't have what I'm looking for? I ordered the" traditional fit" because it said "slimmer through hips and thighs". So wanted this to work! The pants are fine--but getting the right fit is why I would recommend

Rated 2 out of 5 by Raindeary So disappointed
The hidden-elastic waist was comfortable and the pockets, thankfully, were large enough, but the fit, style, and color were substandard. The twill fabric seemed sturdy enough, but the drape was poor and the color much duller than it looked online. I hated the way they looked. It's as if they were two-dimensional.
Shipping was free, but I am out $6.50 in return postage.
I'll keep buying knit shirts, especially as my hard to please husband likes them, but no more slacks, sorry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by horriblefit Horrible fit
These are not "classic fit" at all. The back gathers and sits low. The waist is too big yet the pockets in front are tight so you can see the white of the pocket lining.

On my earlier review I forgot to mention how much I appreciated the deep pockets - what a treat to have room in your pockets! Also L L Beans policy of having no shipping charges adds to the enhancement of purchasing from them.
