Rated 5 out of 5 by BoogiesMommy Happy Camper
When I first tried on these pants, they were so baggy I thought I'd just have to wear them for sleeping in the winter. But I took a chance and washed and dried them on high heat. That did the trick. For once, shrinking my clothes was a good thing. Now they fit well enough to wear to yoga. Very comfortable and stretchy, and so far they have kept their shape. The material feels really soft. I'm usually a size 2 or 4, and I got the x small. They're a little loose, which is how I like my clothes. Checking the LL Bean sales twice a day finally paid off, since I got these at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHGlove I am convinced this pants are indestructible!
I wear these pants 3 seasons of the year. I love them. They wash beautifully, go into the dryer without shrinking, don't lose their color with age and are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn.
The slim leg look great with a tunic. Someone my age and size would look ridiculous wearing leggings but these pants are just slim enough to make my tunics look more stylish.
In late February, following one of our snow/ice storms, I went out to start the car to warm it up before I went on my way. Yes, that's wimpy but the windchill factor was very low. As I went around the car, I foolishly forgot that there was black-ice on the ground and I gracefully (not!) fell and badly sprained both the inside and outside of my ankle. I also got one of the deepest gashes in my knee I've ever gotten. It outdid all the gashes I'd gotten during childhood.
Since it was on my knee and was constantly being flexed, the cut was bad enough to become ulcerated. I go into detail not to bore you, since many people fell down hard on hot top this winter, but because I left out the most amazing part of my story. I was wearing a pair of black slim Perfect Fit pants. They didn't get a tear in them, nor did they become discolored. In fact, later, when the dust had settled, I couldn't tell which pair I had on because the knees of all the pants are completely wear-free.
Now if that isn't a tribute to these fine pants, I don't what is!
Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by HamsterLover Perfect fit??? Not for me!
Bring back the fly front! I have a couple of the old version of these with the fly front, and those fit much better. Even the slim leg pants drape in an unflattering way at the crotch. Like other reviewers, I don't like the fact that the waistband isn't completely sewn on, leaving gaps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yourmajesty Oversized on hips
nice fabric, but these do not fit a typical large unless you have big hips. I normally wear a size 14 Bean pant but this pair of large (14-16) would fit an extra large (16-18). perhaps order down a size. these ones are going back.

dissapointed that the waist line was not completely sewn in, just tacked in spots. Also wish there were pockets. Fit is fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PSShopper "Fold-over" waistband not for me
Let me first say that I love Perfect Fit pants. I usually buy the straight leg style. They are so comfortable & perfect for traveling. I thought I'd try the Slim Fit even tho I'm a woman of size. When I received my pants, I was surprised to see that the waistband was not sewn down except at the seams. I sent it back, thinking that somehow this flaw had been missed in inspection. My next pair were the same. I called Customer Service - so helpful! - & found out that this was, indeed, the way the pants were supposed to be. I was so disappointed because the pants fit very nicely otherwise. Since I have my own "folds" at my waist, the band continually flipped over & twisted. I was relieved to find out that the Slim Fit is the only style with this kind of waistband.
So, it's back to straight leg for me or if I buy another Slim pair, I'll have to take them to a tailor & have the waistband sewn down. Dear LLBean - don't EVER put the fold-over waistband on the straight leg or the cropped styles - PLEASE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by shoppingpro neat looking comfy slacks
Although the have no pockets- I find when traveling I do in fact have a pocket book so no need for pockets. They look very neat- but stains don't come out without extra attention- the fabric I guess.....
I'm going to buy another pair! Oh--- I have long legs and always order Med-tall- and these fit the bill. Fat with long legs I might add... 150lbs, 5'5" with a 32" inseam!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kathfish Perfect fit Slim
These pants are wonderful. I originally purchased my "normal" size pants and when they arrived and I tried them on they were to big! I usually take an XL but these were big and too long. I easily exchanged them for Large, Slim, Petite and to my surprise, they fit me so well, I'm going to order another pair. I have not been on a diet nor shrunk! I'm just thrilled!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShoprMA Would buy again
Pants fit well and are very forgiving if you happen to be up and down in weight. Waistband is a little funny but wouldn't tuck in a shirt anyway. Wash well, easy care. Dark navy and dark brown would be nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Adelyn Good fit and comfortable
My only disappointment is that the black color fades. I can wear them for a couple of months and they look good. After a couple of months I wear them only around the house
