Rated 2 out of 5 by IllinoisLee Bad hem
I own a black and grey pair. Both fit great, look great and feel great. I then purchased a blue pair or Heather I believe it was called. The fit was much looser and after two washings the pant leg hem came loose. I return them and ordered another pair. The same thing happened. LL Bean must have changed manufacturers... I am very disappointed because most of the clothes that I buy come from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HAF1 Awesome!
My husband wears dress slacks to work and decided to give these a try. He LOVES them. They were purchased about 6 months ago and get a lot of wear ... they are comfortable, look great and hold up well. He can wear these many times without the need for re-pressing. Definitely plan to get more.
Feedback for LLBean: It would be nice if there were other choices like pin stripe or other shades of charcoal so it doesn't look he's wearing the same pair of pants all the time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pinkyporsche Year round wool natural fit comfort pleated
The worst fitting pair of pants I have ever owned. Had bought three pair of style#283783 great fitting also year round wool comfort waist pleated.i thought these would fit as well but they fit like a family of elephants moved out of the seat. I had gotten two pair and they both fit the same miss the style # 283783 as they fit like a pair of pants should! Who ever thought to drop that style needs to rethink their decision as they were a much better fitting pair of pants

Rated 5 out of 5 by IllinoisLee Great pants , great fit
I own two pair of these pants and have had them for over a year. I have had no problems with the stitching. They fit great and they look great. I just ordered another pair in blue. I also ordered a fourth pair in peat green but they do not have it in my size. Overall great pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by John2b Wool pants: brown please
These are great pants, and I bought a pair over a year ago. To my surprise you do not offer them in brown anymore, yet offer them in green. Please offer them in brown again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanVAfan 4 stars but a bad hem
I purchased these in July 2015 for my husband. Due to the summer in Virginia, he did not wear them much, maybe a handful of times. Upon a recent washing (maybe the 2nd or 3rd), the hem came out completely in one pant leg. I paid $6.00 to have it repaired, but for the cost of these pants, that should not happen after they have been worn and washed so few times. Very disappointing for LLBean. I have ordered multiple colors of these same pants, without this problem, so I presume it was a fluke. I hope so. Just ordered a tan pair - might have waited if I had known. Maybe LLB will see this review and credit me the $6.00.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hate2Complain A Little Better Stitching Would Go A Long Way
I own six pair. Three have stitching issues in less than a year! All different - 1 leg; 1 crotch; and 1 hem. I asked to have one fixed and was given a new pair. Overkill! Could have been fixed by a tailor in one minute. I couldn't bear to waste two more pair, so I paid to fix.I love the weight, look, and feel of the pants and would thus still recommend, but I'm guessing they could be sold a whole lot cheaper if Bean didn't have to replace so many.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HawaiiBean Not for humid climates ...doesn't hold crease
I bought these washable 100% wool natural fit "year round" pants for business use and travel. Unfortunately, they are not "wash and wear" and a "cool iron" doesn't help in restoring a crease or neat appearance. In humid climates like Hawaii and Guam, I noticed the crease and initial good fit started to droop affecting its fit appearance, unlike some of the microfiber slacks I like to wear during business travel. I am a long time LL Bean clothes "fan" but I am not satisfied with the "washable 100% wool natural fit pants." Especially when you consider the higher cost and business wear expectations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bschneidva cuff seam disintegrated in 4 months
In general, I really like these trousers. bought three pair and had cuffs put on each. I like that they are warm, I like that they rarely wrinkle and are good for traveling. I like that the waist is self adjusting.
If I were redesigning these, I would add a tab to the single button waist closure, so that there is a tabbed button in addition to the single waist button.
The cuff stitching on one pair of these trousers totally disintegrated after four months of ownership, wearing them probably 3x a week. I have voiced my disappointment to L.L.Bean as I expect much higher quality control from their products.
