Rated 4 out of 5 by IonaD I like them
I find these pants comfortable- and neither dressy nor too casual. I wore them for a dress down day at work. I like the material- and they're probably 3 season pants- not warm enough for winter. They were definitely worth the sale price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Skysailor These Stretched!
When I first tried these on I thought... really nice. I like wide legs. Then they started stretching... and now the are REALLY lose, and baggy. The fabric is NOT LLBean quality. They are good for hot weather as the material is light weight. But if you like a neat tailored look, these are not for you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeansRegular Disappointed
I was excited to receive the 3 pair of pants that I ordered, Mallard, Rose, and Indigo Gray. The Mallard is a lovely color, the other 2 look a bit faded. The fabric is a soft, non-itchy linen blend with a floppy, not graceful drape. The fit is the factor that is so disappointing about these pants. I always wear a size 4 or XS in regular or medium tall length LLBean pants. The XS regular in these pants has a loose waist, below which they poof out all around front, sides, and back. I could have taken in several inches in both the front and back seams. I noted the same situation that many other reviewers noted which was a bulging of the side seam pockets (probably from excess fabric along the front center seam) which made even my narrow hips look plump. (Yuck!) The legs are disproportionately wide, the 30" length is too short for my 5'7" frame, and the double wide hem just makes the wide legs look even wider and more dated. It would take extensive tailoring to make these pants fit correctly, which I do not like or expect to do to new, quality clothing. The only woman that these pants would fit out of the bag would be a shorter woman with an 'apple' shape (carries weight around the waist) who would need the extra fabric right below the higher riding waist.
I would love to see these pants in the current year colors redesigned with a less baggy middle and narrower, straight legs, along with a true tunneled elastic waist (current elastic is sewn into waist seam at lower edge) with a drawstring. Then I would be ordering a bunch and recommending them to my friends.

quite possibly the frumpiest pair of pants I've ever bought from Bean...I went a size down, so they fit ok. I have big legs, and the legs were cut so wide I looked like a clown. Fabric was nice, cut was not. Not up to Bean's standards; I will be returning these.

I bought 4 pair of these pants, in two different sizes, hoping one of the two sizes would fit. (I've had bad luck with LLB sizes lately). Sorry to say all 4 pairs are already on their way back. I liked the fabric, as well as the colors indigo gray and field rose. I liked the pull-up waistband. And actually, either size would have worked for me since there wasn't a great disparity in measurements. The problem with these pants is the pockets on the side seams...they flare out in a "wing-like" fashion. In both sizes, and in both colors, the pockets did not lie flat against the body, giving the illusion of extra girth around my midsection. Who designs pants like this? Who wants to look wider? The pockets shouldn't add inches and they shouldn't be the focus on a pair of pants!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Coloradoconsumer Not flattering
These pants have a very long rise. I am low waisted and had to pull the waist band very high on my torso to make them "fit." They are cut very generously in the hip and stomach area, so on me they looked very baggy (I wear a size 14 and am 5'6" and am not skinny by any standard). The fabric is also quite thick for a summer-weight linen pant. I am returning these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by filumena2 No good reviews today..........
Throw away the pattern on these linen pull-on pants! Ordered my size medium 10-12...but the only good thing about these linen pull-on pants is the color! The design is just terrible. The pockets stick out straight, like dumbos ears. Maybe they stick out because they are pull-ons and they don't have a zipper and button closure?? Think the pockets are too big. They have too big of an opening. The pants are too wide or relaxed and a little too short. Have to return....Sorry, llbean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mel72 waist looser than loose
I'm a standard size 12, middle-aged with a 34" waist. The elastic in these AT REST is larger than my waist! Too bad, because they would have been good travel pants otherwise. But of course I'm sending them back.

These pants are shapeless and formless. They seem to be haphazardly designed and made. The fabric is a linen/cotton blend, and it has none of the advantages of either. I have bought LLBean clothes for 45 years and expect them to be timeless and well made -- these pants just don't meet the LLBean standard.

I ordered the Deep Mallard which was a beautiful, clear, rich color which I wish LLBean would offer more often. I LOVED the color but unfortunately, the rise was too high and just would be too uncomfortable for me to wear. I returned them. I may order another pair, just to see if it was just that particular pair of pants because I really did like the color.
