Rated 1 out of 5 by Oregongram Disappointed!!
Really was surprised with the pants!! I have had a pair of linen pants for over 10yrs from LLBean that still look very nice. They are wider in the leg...so was excited to order these pants in an updated version! They fit perfect when I tried on.....then I washed them (cold water)!! They shrunk...up and in!!...big time!! Also, so wrinkled..not sure I could have ironed them back to their original look!! I think this is the first time I have written a review for Beans with a product they offer that was so poor quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuchara Nice fit, comfortable
Zipper front with button closure provides smooth front. Like the belt loops & pockets!

I like the feel of the new fabric but I prefer a wider straight leg. I live wear it's hot and anything too fitted is uncomfortable on the hot, humid days of summer. Don't care for the belt loops. I also would prefer a wider range in color choices, I miss the dark sage, dark brown, and a darker khaki.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoLA504 MY Pros&Cons on 'New' Premium Washable Linen pant
Premium Washable Linen Pant Pros: 1) the belt loops, 2) the light-weight of the linen (except in white where the pockets are so visible it is unattractive), 3) minimal shrinkage when cold water washed, line dried. Cons: 1) although this 'classic fit' features "straight leg," it's not trouser enough like for me, I prefer a wider leg. 2) love having four pockets, but none are deep enough to be secure (keys have fallen out getting in/ out car). The discontinued Lakeside Washable pant was a more suitable weight linen in white to conceal pockets and the opening of the straight leg was wider, the pockets deeper.
Too bad both styles can't remain available...Bean's white linen pants always sell out so quick!

I was looking for a pair of pants to wear in a hot, humid climate in a neutral color. These were perfect and the fit is excellent. I know they will wrinkle but that is OK.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 2122 Too long.
Have been happy with Bean slacks before, but these did not have consistent fit throughout.

If you have a pear shaped body and most of the pants you try on are too small in the hips and too big in the waist, then these pants will not fit you, either. I should have known better than to try, but I'm looking for more linen pants, & Bean makes good stuff. Unfortunately, most of their women's clothing seems to be made for string beans.
Oh, and this so called "indigo" color is not what I would call indigo. At least it does not match an indigo sweater I have, which is the color of jeans. This is more like a medium to dark blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoLA504 Missed the Perfect Mark, but still OK.
Had high hopes that, although the "old" Lakeside Washable Linen pants have been discontinued, the addition of the belt loops on the "new" Premium Washable Linen pants would be an even better pant for my taste. Love having four pockets, but neither front nor back pockets are very deep...objects fall out when getting in/out the car. I purchased both indigo and white. The lighter weight linen is great because it is very comfortable and drapes nicely... But in the white linen, because the fabric is light weight, the pockets are very noticeable through the fabric, which I find highly unattractive. The pant leg, although "straight" is not a trouser style width...but fortunately, they don't look tapered. On the positive, there was minimal shrinkage when cold water washed and line dried; the fit remained true to size. Gotta love linen enough to press it, which I do...hate paying the dry cleaners to do it. It's great to have the belt loops! And the "not-so-deep" pockets are still better than having no pockets at all. I will probably order an additional color, but not another white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthernGirl1 Comfortable, slimming, lovely
These pants fit beautifully. Everything is perfect and I intend to order another pair, different color. While the fit is casual, these will look nice for slightly dressy events.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Blackhole Sizing is Way Off
I ordered a size 10, it was tighter than I wanted, so I returned them and ordered a size 12. They arrived quickly but the size 12 was inches smaller than the 10 that I had sent back. The sizing is way off, either miss-marked or miss-labeled by the manufacturer.
