Rated 1 out of 5 by LadySwish beautiful cloth, onesizefitsall fit, NOT classy
I did love the cloth, so I was very disappointed with the fit. I researched all the different fits. I didn't want skinny pants, but these fit more like maternity pants of yesteryear. What a waste!
My husband who is not very choosy about how clothes look on me didn't like them because "they aren't very sleek" or rather, "where did my wife go?" It wasn't the size either, as a size smaller would've been too tight in places.
The classic fit should have been right on my natural waist, but it was several inches higher, and they kept sagging, so I felt like an old grandpa or a little kid wearing one-size-fits all pj's. Who needs that? I was afraid to order the favorite fit based on the description and because most of the favorite fits were skinny pants. (Except this style in the wrong colors.)
I have bought corduroy pants a few years ago from LL Bean and they were perfect. Now I can't find any that I like the combination of cloth, cut and colors available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MagaliaGal Too Bulky
I returned pants because of the elastic waist. Just too much fabric in the back, a bit too bulky, otherwise I would have kept them. They fit perfectly without the comfort waist in a size 4 reg. I am 5' 2" and weigh 115 lbs. Would love these to be made without the "comfort" waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopchick Wonderfully made corduroys
I gave these 5 stars because they are made so wonderful, even tho the fit (size 4) is a little roomy. I did not see the star rating option when I made my prior post. Still, a very nice pair of pants for the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sattvala Wow - Great Pants
Finally we have real pockets again! The pockets are deep, the button is big, the stretch is wonderful, the sizing is great. SO glad to have these pants (in 4 colors...)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 Great Cords!!
I had the chance to compare these cords with last years cords and these are FANTASTIC!!!! The feel of the corduroy is soft but not misshapen as some cords are. The fit for me is PERFECT!! I now wear a size 8 (last year, I wore a 12), but being a mother, the largest place on me is my tummy. The comfort waist allows a great fit without huge baggy legs that occurs with a larger size. Having had changed so many pant sizes in a year, these were just what I was looking for, a soft, strong fabric with a perfect fit. Now I'll be back for the other colors!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ubipetrusibiecclesia Nap running up from bottom to top - catches LINT
Cords should be cut so that the nap of the fabric runs from the top of the garment downwards. If you run your hand down, it should be smooth, like petting a dog. If you run it up, it "ruffles" and is not smooth.
Well, these pants were cut exactly the opposite. The nap runs up. That means every tiny bit of lint is caught, the velvet look of good cords is lost. Clearly sloppy manufacturing. Sending them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lowertech Still wonderful!
I have other pants in this model, including other cords, and they are great. Even when I am between sizes (sound familiar?) they fit well and look good. They wash beautifully and maintain their shape and condition, I ordered the camel color this time, and it is really a georgous, soft shade, perfect for fall as well as winter and spring. Some of Bean's color descriptions have been off lately, not accurate, and causing unpleasant surprises, but these are lovely. Thank goodness for this dependable LL Bean product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by agatha2 PERFECT!!!!!
I couldn't be more pleased. I purchased a 12 P (regular size) and I
couldn't ask for a better fit. After I discovered that, I looked at the sewing and the material closely. I found I was happy about this also.
These are a very nice looking pair of pants. I wore them for a few hours to check comfort and I didn't find a problem there either. As you might suspect, I'm keeping them and considering another color. I got the camel and it is a nice rich color. Not sure of my second choice yet......take a risk....you'll be pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosialie very comfy pants
I really appreciate the warmth and fit of these pants(and the deep pockets.)
They're a little too large in the legs but there is a little shrinkage over time with the dryer.
I would love to have these in the olive color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Love them--all five colors
I bought a pair to check for size and in the size I usually order from LLBean. The pants fit beautifully, felt comfortable. I couldn't get to the computer fast enough to order the pants in four more of the beautiful colors it is offered in. I have washed all five pairs of the pants at least twice now--inside out as instructed. There has been no shrinkage. I added fabric softner to the final rinse. After the washer, the pants went to the dryer on low heat for about 3 or 4 minutes. I grabbed all pairs from out of the dryer while still quite damp and hung them on hangers so that what few wrinkles were left disappeared immediately. They came out looking better than they did when they were new. There's less lint and thus, the colors are even more intense.
Everytime I wear a pair of the pants, I feel elegant whether I top them with a beautiful plaid cotton or flannel shirt or sweater from LLBean. The colors all match each other as is the case with most of LLBean's clothing. It makes it easy to switch pieces around. If I choose to add a LL Bean belt, shoes, purse, sunglasses and a co-ordinating jacket--the outfit always looks smashing. I will never wear blue jeans again (well, maybe the nice ones from LLBean) when these cords are so beautifully made, well priced and comfortable. I've gone from a hippy in jeans to a well dressed, respectable looking lady. Thank you LLBean.
