Rated 4 out of 5 by Mervich Bean's Dress Cords
These are really nice pants. The fit through the seat and legs is perfect for what they are?dress pants. I'm a big boy?my usual size 42 is a bit snug in the waist (less than an inch) and the length is perfect before laundering. Cords usually shrink some, but I believe with careful washing and drying, these should be OK. Already have several pairs of cords from Bean and I have seen no appreciable shrinkage with them. Just a bit of extra care required. I got the khaki and the "dark olive" in these?khaki is what you'd expect and the "dark olive" is more like a "black forest"?or something like very dark green. Don't get me wrong, they look really nice, but they're not anything related to olive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoBoy Great Cords; Great Price!
Very nice fit and appearance, and purchased at a great sale price. Other reviews noted wrinkling. I am quite finicky and don't understand their complaint. These cords show no unreasonable wear for the day. I work in a very professional downtown Chicago office environment, and received several compliments. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by galin Raisin: great color
I bought these pants for my husband when they were a daily markdown. He is a 33 x 30, and he found them to be almost too short. In bare feet, they were perfect, but with any shoes on...So we are exchanging them for the 33 x 32 and will always hem if necessary. The raisin color is beautiful, a rich purple/brown that is perfect for the winter. The corduroy is not too heavy/stiff or too lightweight. They really are very nice dress pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LBarbara Corduroy dress pants
My husband likes these, finds them comfortable and wears them a lot. My only complaint is that they definitely need to be ironed, unfortunately by me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LTBeancustomer1 Comfortable Cord For All Around Wear
This pant can be worn both for work and play and is both soft and lightweight unlike the heavier wale cords that tend to be stiffer and less comfortable. You can wear these cords in every season in the northeast but summer. Another winner. Thank you, LLBEAN!

Rated 1 out of 5 by merrymama Very disappointing!
1. These are thin corduroys compared to the good cords LLBean carried a couple of years ago but discontinued. 2. Worst of all they wrinkle like crazy! After one wearing, the pants were covered in wrinkles and looked awful. After one wearing, they were sent back. 3. Overpriced for such poor quality. Bring back the thicker, plush, non-wrinkling cords you used to sell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rocca -and-a-half stars
These are nice fitting pants - all around. They lie smooth across the back end; the crotch lies below mine and not above; and, they are not a loose or slim fit; but, a nice clean fit. They should have a wrinkle resistant feature because they look too crumply by the end of the day. Freshly laundered and ironed they look great. I'd say they're more of a dress down + pant or dressier looking weekend pant. I wear them for the dress down day with the camden corduroy shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Norway medium weight, classic fit
This is a good choice if you are looking for cords that are not as heavy with a finer wale than than other choices. Why it needs to be washed on the delicate cycle puzzles me. LLBean corduroys should be sturdy enough for regular wash. I did not put in dryer, line drying worked well, not too wrinkly. Good for everyday winter pants, mainly indoor wear. Classic fit, not too loose. Will order again, how about a charcoal grey, dusty green or light brown?

Inner button and clasp awkward. Tightness of inner button created special difficulty. Why not standard single button closure?

Rated 4 out of 5 by billyburgbuddy King's cloth pants
I bought numerous pairs. They are made of a 7 ounce fabric (per LLB sales), and are soft, smooth, and well made with a bottom coin pocket in the right hand pocket ;they have the LLB logo on the inside waistband. The fit is slightly looser than "standard fit " cords in the behind but about the same in the legs with a slightly higher waist. If you're under 5'10 you'll appreciate the rise on these. The leg opening accommodates insulated snow boots easily, thankfully, and because of the weight, as I mentioned, they can be worn from cool to cold seasons--3 in the NE USA.
These pants are a godsend for me because the "standard fit" are OK but a little too sporty for me. These can be worn seven days a week without ever looking too slack or too fussy--a rarity in America these days.
Stock up... I plan on ordering enough pairs to last me a decade!
