Rated 5 out of 5 by SmilN BEST CORDS!
I finally found the perfect fit! I wear a 8P and most of the cords are too big in the hips and baggy in the legs. I only wish I order two or three more pairs....darn! The only thing I noticed is the pockets are really small... not like the classic cords...but most women like that for skinny cut pants. This is my first pair and I look skinny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fialka great cords!
I haven't seen such great quality cord fabric in years! As for size - I checked the size chart and ordered exactly as measured size 2R in black color. They fit me as model on photo! Fabric doesn't have a lot of stretch and they loose up just a bit with wear, but retain the shape after 2 days of wear. Of course they pick up hair from my cat, but its expected from any black untreated fabric :). I highly recommend these cords, especially for sale price - they look and feel like $200 designer pants. Many thanks LL Bean!
P.S. Delivery was prompt, as usual, even for severe weather.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dooley Order one size up!
These pants are so small! I ordered a size 8 last year in the skinny cords, but this year the size is way off. I should have checked the measurements, but I just went by what worked in the past. I'll have to send them back. Also, the legs (calves) are definitely not "skinny"...lots of room in that area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stalbridge Lightweight cord that doesn't add pounds
Received the package at night and thought the pants were brown (raisin). In the light the next morning, they were clearly in the purple range, but in a good way. Bougth a size up (based on garment measurements) and they are a tiny bit big, but fine. They are certainly not "skinny" jeans; too much leg material, but acceptable. Can still be tucked into boots.

Really nice cords. I am 5'2" but I ordered regular length, having learned over the years that LL Bean petite pants are just too short. I like the modern styling and straight leg. I don't wear boot cut anything except for yoga pants.

Ibought apair of these pants in brown, green and beige last year. I wear them all the time ahd get quite a few complements on them. I was so pleased when this year they came out with black and navy. I ordered 1 of each color.

The sizing is good, industry standard, but for whatever reason petite sizes in the same size as regular, instead of just being shorter, are somewhat smaller. Go figure.
Fabric is kind of thin, more of a summer weight.
Glad Bean FINALLY has smaller sizes!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BigSkyOhio Runs Small Cord
This cord is more akin to the Jr.s dept although the waist & rise are great in one size up, the legs are very unforgiving. Might be a great fit for a petite sized gal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandyjobob Good Fit
I have three pair of these skinny jeans. They look great with my boots. The fit is perfect for my body type which is straight and thin. Normally I have problems with the hips being to large and the waist to small but these are just right for those with less waist to hip ratio. The only thing I would change is the length and make them a little longer but with boots it does not matter.
