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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BrimmedHatGuy My Favorite Fit
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!

Rated 5 out of 5áby BeanVisitor Finally.......
I have ordered several LL Bean jeans. Each was an okay fit but not great. These jeans are GREAT!. I am 6' 165 lbs. and the 34x32 fit perfect. The jeans have a narrower leg (not skinny jean narrow) and they do not flair out at the cuff. The fabric is soft and durable to the touch. I received my first pair of these jeans on 5/29/2014 and immediately ordered a second pair.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Treehugger2 Updated look
My husband usually wears "dad" jeans, with the waistline at the waist. I thought that these jeans which sit a bit lower, would be a good option for a slightly different look.
The material is lighter weight and we just got them, so I am not sure how they will wear.
I think they look nice. He is very slim, but he was concerned when he tried them on that the lower waist would emphasize the small roll at his waist. He has not worn them out yet, so we will see how they wear and how comfortable he is with the way they look and feel.

Rated 5 out of 5áby wellsy1959 Nice jeans
These jeans are exactly the quality and fit expected from Bean's. Though not the design I usually purchase (the double L jeans) I am very happy with the fit and quality. I will buy another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Standardfitter Better fit, not quite as good as the originals
I bought multiple pairs of standard fit jeans and chinos a few years ago when they first came out, and they fit me perfectly. Then there was a year or two where the standard fit was all over the place. Rode too high on the waist, too large a drop, inseams too long. These are close to that original standard fit. Still a smidge too high riding and a hair too long in the drop, but better.
I got the bleached canvas, and find it far more on the 'white' side of the color spectrum than 'tan'. Just an FYI...

Rated 3 out of 5áby Shopper712 Still nice jeans but a little disappointing
I initially ordered Bean's 1912 standard fit jeans when they first hit their website. When the Vintage Stonewashed pair with its vertical striping material arrived in the mail I remember thinking they were the best-looking jeans I'd ever purchased. After trying them on they immediately became my favorite jeans, a perfect look a perfect fit. Unfortunately, when I was ready to order what would be my 4th pair of 1912 jeans I discovered that the Vintage Stonewashed was no longer available and settled for a different color. To my dismay the new jeans no longer have the vertical threading which was only available in the Vintage styling. I still think the 1912s are OK jeans, but just another pair of jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Savvynurse Love the fit
My husband, 6'2", 168'lb with a little tummy loves the fit. Likes the short rise and slim legs. Purchased light stonewashed and indigo wash in size 33-32. Stonewashed looks a little worn, but he loves them. He wants to throw other jeans away.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Reg1987 Fit is Different than Double L Jeans
The material is a nice weight. However, the fit is not as good as the Double L Mid Weight jeans from last year. Felt like they were too low.
