Rated 5 out of 5 by TheTravler Great jeans, even better customer sercie
These jeans are great. I am somewhat larger guy and like to wear my pants well below my waist (imagine Hank HIll), so I am always searching for jeans that have a lower rise so that my pants don't seem crazy baggy. I can wear these jeans well below my waist and they fit perfectly. They are even snug across my hips, which is rare when you are built like me.
The dark indigo is a great color. I have stayed away from a lot of LL Bean jeans in the past because the color/wash of the pants scream "old man jeans" to me. It is hard to describe. But, all of the 1912 colors are great. The colors are more classic to me.
I normally wear a 38 waist and a measurement of exactly 38 in. fits snug. So, I ordered a 38 and they were very large on me. I measured them and really they measure more like 40in. I thought they might have been tagged incorrectly. So, I jumped on chat customer service. The person there said no problem and immediately sent me out another pair. I was worried that the pants were not marked incorrectly and I would just get another pair of 38s that were too big. But, the customer service rep. requested that the pants be hand pulled and measured. The person who hand pulled must have seen that they do run large and sent me a 36 instead. They fit perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UpstateNY01 Ripped back pocket--twice!
Purchased these jeans once(vintage wash) and had the back pocket tear. Returned and got another pair(less 'wash' this time--stonewash) and within 2 months had the back pocket rip AGAIN.
Stay away from these unless you are wearing for city fashion use only. They don't hold up. Really not what I expect from LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yogahunk Best fitting jeans ever...
Just received this today and wore it right away all day, no breaking in required. Fit around the waist and butt were perfect, unlike another pair from a competitor's which I returned. Of all the jeans I've bought over the years, LLBean's "1912 standard fit" has been the most comfortable and best fitting. One minor niggle was the top button was very, very snug, but I think with use over time it should be ok. The weight of the cloth is perfect for our warm Southern Cal winter weather, not too heavy but substantial enough for durability. Good job, LLBean!

by Rob715 2nd brand new pair to rip at the same spot
I have ordered 3 pairs of 1912 jeans in the past year and two of them have ripped right where the pocket is sewn to the back of the jeans. The first pair I thought was just an anomaly, as I have been a huge fan of LL Bean products for many years. The second pair split in the same spot, the first time I wore them. It is not a size issue as they fit fine (if anything, they are a tiny bit large) and the one pair that didn't rip has been great. Very disappointing, expect better from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by butraveller Very Satisfied Customer
I bought these jeans recently and have washed them once. I have been buying the 1912's for years now and I was somewhat anxious to buy again due to some of the recent reviews. I need not have worried as they fit me beautifully. I really see very little difference from the originals other then they are a bit longer on me which is perfect. The fit and look are great and it's the same soft denim. Additionally, a pair of older style 1912's that I bought last spring and had LL Bean alter for me broke their zipper in the wash. I called LL, got a live customer service person (Allison i believe), who offered; repair, exchange, or refund without hesitance. She truly made me feel that at LL Bean the customer comes first. Thank you everyone at LL and please keep up the good work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by redesigned Redesigned for the worse
Bought a pair thinking they'd fit like my other 1912 Standard fit jeans. I was wrong. These have been redesigned and now fit like skinny jeans. Very disappointing. Why didn't they just come out with a new fit of jean? I loved the old fit. Not sure if I'll buy from LL Bean again

Could not be happier with my new 1912 Jeans. Fit is spot on. Shipping was fast, price was good, what's not to love! Well done LL Bean, I'll be back for more!

I became a customer of LL Bean several years of ago back when all of the other blue jean retailers started tweaking their styles to be more of a skinny fit. Luckily LL Bean had stayed off the band wagon back then. The 1912 Standard Fit jeans were a perfect fit for me! They sat below the waist and provided ample room in the thighs without being too baggy. Fast forward to today, my old jeans are on their way out. Needing new ones, I ordered the same 1912 Standard Fit jeans, or so I thought. I was very disappointed to learn that the skinny jean virus has infected yet another retailer. I could barely get the jeans up over my thighs! Bear in mind that I'm the same measurements I was all those years back. I will be returning the jeans. Unless the 1912 Standard Fit jean goes back to how it used to be, LL Bean has lost a customer for good.

Great jeans! Kinda slim up top, truly straight from the knee down. Look great and still functional for active lifestyles/work. Waist is larger than marked, but that's typical from most everyone these days. I have a few pairs in various degrees of wear - the oldest probably about 2-3 years and still going strong.
Make them in a heavier weight denim (15+oz.)for the fall/winter and I'll buy another three pairs!
