Rated 5 out of 5 by travlingal Love these pants - 5 times
For summer I bought three cropped pants and one long. Just ordered a darker shade for fall. Love the fabric, the stretch, and the weight? Good pant for a slim shape in waist, hip, and leg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Isabelle3 Great chinos
I got these chinos in the fig color. I saw the color in the L.L.Bean store and loved it, I wanted a change from black.
These pants fit really well and are very comfortable, I think they have just a small amount of spandex. They're a nice alternative to jeans, slightly dressier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernLLBeanBelle Cool and comfortable
These are great pants for summer . . . much more flattering than capris. The material is wonderfully soft, too. They are a pleasure to wear. One caveat, though. Because these are mass-produced, there is some variation in size. I am a size 6. One pair of size 6s in this pant fit perfectly. I couldn't even button the other pair of size 6s, and it was very tight on my legs. I swim in size 8s (the first size I ordered), so I can't go up a size to compensate for the sizing issues. But LL Bean is helping me to find one that fits as well as the first pair. Excellent, excellent customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaliforniaRetiree Lovely fabric, great fit
Just received these today, and I'm so pleased. I'm 5'2", 127 lbs; I ordered size 8 petite, and it's just right. The color--faded olive--is very attractive--not too faded! And the fabric is so soft. I'm happy to have found these pants and plan to order more in different colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmadeusMozart Best fitting pants ever
My Washed Chinos, size 2 regular, just arrived. I was a little nervous trying them on, after LL Bean's Bayside Twills and Easy Stretch pants, that are only offered from size 4 up, were way too wide in the legs and had to be returned. These Washed Chinos fit like a dream. I am 5'5", 118 pounds, slender build. I chose the cornflower blue. The color is beautiful. I like the material as well. The pants are very well made and actually look dressy. I am so pleased with these pants. I have ordered 3 additional pair - in navy and almond. They are on back order right now. Can't wait until they arrive.
Ladies - If you had sizing issues with the Bayside Twills or Easy Stretch pants, you simply must give the Washed Chinos a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yourmajesty Pleasantly surprised !
Very soft fabric. Fit a slim, straight build. Size 14 fit me correctly in all aspects. 165 lbs. and 5'6". Med. tall is 31 1/2 inch length. A sage colour would be nice in this style. I think the reviewers that said the waist gaped were trying to wear the wrong style. These pants are not meant for a curvy figure (small waist, big hips).

Rated 4 out of 5 by gigi2006 trouble with size
I love the material and the comfort of these pants. I bought 2 sizes a 10 and a 12. I normally wear a 10 comfortably but this 10 is a little too tight in the leg although they loosen up after wearing them for a while. The 12 is comfortable and looks better on me even though it is a bit too big in the waist. I'm going to buy another pair in the 12 and go for the comfort and the not so painted on look. Both sizes are comfortable.
There is a little gapping at the pockets so I sew them shut.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Spark43502 Too much spandex
First off, I love the style of the pants, nice size back pockets and front pockets, no boot legs. What I did not care for was the s-t-r-e-t-c-h. Yes, I read they had a hint of spandex in them, so I purposely ordered a size larger. But when I tried them on, they were like having on a pair of leggings. And since I'm not a size 2/4/6, that is not a flattering look. I would have preferred less stretch and just regular sizing of the pants so they did not CLING to my butt/legs.

I just got these pants in navy and love them. They fit well - no gapping waist, fitted enough in hips and legs without being tight. Very comfortable! With a nice top and good shoes these can be worn for work and not just weekends (depending on your work.)
My only request is that they be available in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by twlynn More colors please!
I am 5 feet tall, 101 pounds. I ordered this is 2 petite. The length is perfect for me. The waist is a little loose, but can easily be altered. I ordered the Sea Rose and Navy colors. I was expecting the Sea Rose to be more of a coral color, based on how it looks on my computer screen, but in person, it is more of an orange-red color, not pink at all. I am keeping it, because thankfully, I do like orange and wear it a lot in the summer, but it just isn't what I expected. Hoping they come out with some great fall colors (brown, grey, wine, black) , as this type of pant can easily be worn most of the year where I live in TN.
