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!

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

Rated 1 out of 5 by LindaofDC Stretched out, became unwearable
I ONLY wear these pants, in various colors.
The pair I purchased four months ago was loose but not particularly baggy when it arrived. But it has stretched out, and I've taken LL Bean up on its guarantee and exchanged the pants for the next-smaller size.
The replacement pair -- an extra small, which the size chart says is equivalent to a 4 -- has arrived and seems to me to be the same size in the waist and hips as the size 8 I've had for more than 10 years.
The 10-year-old pair, which has faded but otherwise looks great, is 88 percent cotton and 12 percent Lycra Spandex. The new pair is 90 percent cotton and 10 percent Lycra Spandex. Might this be part of the stretching issue?
LLBean, I've been looking forward to wearing your pants for the rest of my life. Puh-leeze fix the stretching problem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MKStudio LOVE these pants but the waist is too high
I have many pairs, love them. They are (almost) the perfect pants.
HOWEVER, they are a full waistband too high waisted for me.
I have to send each pair to a tailor to have the waistband lowered. Wish there was some way LLBean could do it for me or offer them with a regular waist (the description says this style sits "high on the waist). I do have to shorten them an inch too, but I have to do that with all my pants because I'm short.
They wash beautifully, always look great. All in all they are fantastic pants, make me look thin, feel so comfortable and don't wrinkle. I wash them by hand, throw in the dryer for 45 minutes and/or just hang to dry. The "slim" design makes these the most flattering pants I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by conwat Really Are The Perfect Casual Pants
I have bought these Perfect Slim Pants in different colors for several years, and they last through countless wearings & washings. They are perfect for lounging, exercising or going "out on the town"! I hope LL Bean continues to sell these pants for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by clairespicks so comfy & look good too!!
First of all, LLBean, you're the best!! I didn't realize that the regular length was too long for me, so, I returned for a petite. They're perfect & I love them. (I'm 5'3")
