I have these wool trousers in the black cherry plaid and I LOVE them. I think I ordered them back in early November and I have worn them lovingly since. They are beautifully made. There is a lining so the wool does not itch and they fit like a glove. I am just about 5 feet 4 inches, 118 pounds and the 4 petite is perfect. I wear a short kitten heel with them and I gets tons of compliments. I am debating if I should get the navy and black pair too. They are expensive, but I know I will have these pants for years to come.

This pant looks great. I ordered a pair when they were on sale so my selection was limited on size and color. I am a professional and have gotten many complements on them at work. I had to order one size up and in Petite because they didn't have my regular size. I am a size 12 and fuller figured. This pant tends to make you look slimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by straightshooter2 a very sharp classic
I bought these slacks in the deep blue in size 12 P as a Christmas gift for my Mom. After reading the reviews i had ordered 'up' a size, and that was the right decision as they are a lovely tailored fit. The fabric, attention to detail, feel & fit of the trouser is wonderful. However, in trying them on pre-wrapping (Mom is 5' 2", i am 5' 3") i realized they were way too long on me even with a good heel and would be excessively long on her. So i kept this petite pair for me but am not over-joyed that i will be investing in tailoring for slacks with a 'petite' inseam to begin with. If LL Bean Signature is going to lengthen the petite inseam to 30" then i recommend also including a 'Petite Short' at 28 or 29" at this price point. Otherwise these are a very good value for the style, quality of fabric & workmanship, just heed the review input on sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cb129 Excellent pants
These are probably the best pants I've ever purchased in my life, bar none. I know that sounds like an exaggeration, but as a petite woman with a "skinny pear" body type, I am constantly in search of good pants that fit correctly. For the record, I am 5'4", 115 pounds, with a 29-30 inseam (depending on if I am wearing heels or not). I ordered the 4P in the Italian Wool Trouser in Plaid (Deep Black/Bright Navy).
These pants win on every count. First of all, the quality is superb. From the minute I opened the package, I could see that these are high quality pants. The wool is gorgeous and expensive looking, with rich muted colors. The quality of the sewing is excellent, and the pants are fully lined. And the fit is great. I have never had pants that fit me so perfectly off the rack with no alterations. Usually the rise is too low (I really dislike this low-rise trend) and that usually ends up with me constantly yanking up pants because they feel like they are going to fall off, but the rise on these pants are perfect at the natural waist and do not look high waisted at all. The fit at the hips is great too--not too big (and not too curvy).The leg length and shape are perfect--fitted at the thighs with a slight flare at the end. And I can't say enough about how well the butt fits. These are truly exceptional pants.
The overall look is sleek, polished, expensive, and classic. After receiving the first pair, I went back and ordered more--Black Cherry and a Brown plaid. Again, both these are just gorgeous. I just wish the Black Slate and the Herringbone were back in stock! I would buy them in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meddymaine Superb quality and value.
I ordered two pair -- the herringbone and black/blue plaid. The fabric and construction are of excellent quality.
Be sure to check the size charts. I did, and ordered the next size up. I generally wear a 10P and ordered the 12P. Even they are a bit snug, but I'll keep them because the 14P would have been a little too big.
Overall, these are of fine quality at a price far less than I would expect to pay elsewhere.

Beautiful fabric! Rich colors! Very flattering. Far surpasses anything created by top designers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fiona0764 The perfect winter pant!
I have been looking for a nice wool plaid pant all winter, something that can be casual or dressed up, and these fit the bill perfectly. I was rather late finding these, and all that were available were in petite size. Being 5ft 3" tall, I am borderline petite. However, these fit me perfectly. They are lined, but not bulky, and hang beautifully. I have just ordered a second pair in another colour. Please bring these out again for next winter, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by McBubbly Perfect winter dress pants
I have a terrible time finding dress pants that look good on me. They're always saggy around the crotch. But these fit perfectly - extremely flattering yet work appropriate. They're also a nice warm, lined wool. I am definitely going to buy them in black too. Please come out with a gray too, L.L. Bean and I'll be all set.

I love these pants! The only thing that bums me out is that I can probably only wear them a few months of the year. Well done LL Bean. I'm IMPRESSED. I have two pair. Size 2: 5'6" 115-120 lbs and slim build) = FIT PERFECT. Love the men's inspired plaid pattern of the brown and the pop of the red/navy. The brownish ones have a bit of red in them too. Thank you!

I first ordered the brown plaid in my normal size 2, and they were a bit snug. Then I got them in the black with red/yellow in 4 and they fit perfectly. I wore them with a black merino turtle neck and black heels. My good friend and fashion fiend told me I looked like I had come from the 70's. I took that as a compliment. They are not for you if you want to blend in, but if you feel good in beautifully crafted, warm and well fitting pants...go for it. The way the lines match along the seams and the quality of the material make this pants worth every penny.
