Rated 5 out of 5áby maineyardman Best pants ever
I think these pants are excellent for year-round wear in New England. I bought three pair in my regular size (36 x 30), and they are just right. The thicker weight fabric comes out of the wash ready to wear, and they look good all day. The construction is excellent -- just what I have come to expect from LL Bean over the past 30 years. They should last a lifetime -- but I'm ordering another pair just in case!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Underdawg What happened?
As other reviewers have said, these pants have become baggy and very loose fitting through the seat and legs. You cannot walk around without tugging on the low slung fabric that now drapes like a billowing blouse. The front pockets are not as deep as they should be so coins and key drop out of your pockets when you sit down.
Its a shame. LL Bean knows how to make a quality product and knows that I will pay loyally for a good value.
The material is good and heavy and should wear for a long time. The construction of the seams is solid.
I'm not one to wear "skinny pants" however these pants really miss the mark. The saggy, puffy, surplus of fabric around the upper thigh area is embarrassing. I expected more.
Note: I have not tried the corduroy and some have commented that they have a different cut.

Rated 3 out of 5áby justiq Too wide leg
I liked the fabric and weight of the pants but I could fit both of my legs in one pant leg. Way too big.

Rated 2 out of 5áby poweredbybean DISAPPOINTED
I mistakenly purchased these pants thinking they were the "Men's Bean's 1912 Pants, Twill" - which I already own and like.
I'm not that picky and would have been happy with these; however, despite buying the same size, these pants don't fit anywhere near as well as the "Men's Bean's 1912 Pants, Twill."
In comparison, these pants were long and baggy. On the upside, the materials and construction seemed good, but definitely not enough to make up for the sub-par fit.
I'm returning these. Unfortunately, most sizes and colors of the "Men's Bean's 1912 Pants, Twill" seem to be sold out...so I fear my beloved model of pants is being discontinued :-(.
Uber bad move L. L. Bean - so disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5áby HunterEric Inaccurate sizing and color discription
I ordered a size 35 waist and 29 inseam. The pants were labled as such. The inseam was fine, however the waist measured 37 inches. The pants were also very wide at the hips and legs. I had used the color filter to isolate on the color black and so order the color coal, it being the option presented. The color of the pants received is actually dark gray and is already showing signs of fadding along the seams, at the bottom of the legs and at the hem line, without having been worn. I do like the weight and the feel of the cloth. The pants are going back.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Jackbean Nice pants, but two watch outs
These pants are very nice overall -- good material, waist and length are spot on for me. That said, I am returning because the rise is to short for comfort. The other item to take note of is the front pocket size -- very small. This on it's own would not prevent me from keeping, but is a bit odd. I really wanted to like these, but wasn't meant to be.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Sunalsorises So So
I love the 1912 Corduroys so it seemed like a no-brainer to get these for warmer temps. The material is a little heavy so they are good for early fall/spring. The fit is a little bulky and the pants feel baggy, not at all like the corduroys.
All of that aside, they wear great. I like the hidden front pocket even though I rarely use it. It's great for storing a phone or something you don't want slipping out of your pocket or banging around with other things. It may even stay hidden during a police search, though I have no reason for this feature.
Overall, the pluses and minuses balance out to make them good pants if you are expecting what you get.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MikeW51 Great chinos
These are my favorite pants for fall through spring. I like the standard fit, it rides just above hips. Great fabric - it thicker than most chinos but very soft. It washes well and doesn't wrinkle. I also like the construction details - double stitching and very nice pockets including a zip security pocket in the front right pocket. And did I mention they are a really good value too! I think they will last me for many years.
Bring them back as a regular inventory item. I own two pairs but really want to buy the dark khaki color too!

Rated 1 out of 5áby JimJohnColorado upsized too much
I've ordered the 1912 line in the past and found them comfortable. I wanted another pair, but they must have been upsized, because the fit is now too baggy and the rise is too high.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MattinPittsburgh Great pair of pants
I've been searching for a great pair of pants, and here they are. Soft but hold their shape over the course of the day. Super comfortable, plenty of room in the seat and thigh, but I don't feel that they're too baggy. I like the zippered security pocket too. Great for work, great for play. These will be my go to pants for the rest of my life. Keep makin' 'em, Bean, and I'll keep buying them.
