Rated 2 out of 5 by kycountrygirl Not for Me
The pants look softer and lighter on line than in person. I felt they did not have enough give and were narrower in waist than I prefer. In addition, the rise was a little to high for me. Returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesSales Feel good, look good jeans!!!!
Jeans are very generous in the waist and fit great. The larger waist is fine, doesn't bother me. LOVE the fabric being made in the USA!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DivineMissM Well made, but some drawbacks.
These jeans are very well made, but have some drawbacks as far as I'm concerned.
1. Ordered my regular size and one size up. Both were tight in the waist, and there was virtually no difference in waist circumference between the two.
2. Front pockets are much too shallow. I always carry spare keys and change in my pockets, even when I carry a purse.... everything I put in the pockets either wouldn't fit or would fall out.. And forget trying to carry a cell phone. I often go without a purse, but that isn't possible with these jeans.
3. The zipper/fly is extremely short which makes getting in and out of them a bit tricky. Might not be a problem if you have narrow hips.
4. I ordered my regular length, but these were a bit on the short side. If they draw up at all in the wash, I'll have to send them back.
What I liked:
1. The cut of the jeans and the quality of workmanship were excellent.
2. I liked the weight of the fabric -- not too bulky.
Despite the drawbacks, I will keep them to wear around the house. I would recommend them to a friend with a few caveats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtCatNightOwl Comfortable!
These are the most comfortable pants I own. I immediately ordered a second pair. At 5'4" I usually wear a size 14 in LLB pants. a 29" inseam is perfect for me but can rarely find.so I ordered the regular, as most of my athletic sandals and hiking boots have a taller heel. Other reviewers said they don't shrink in length, and will update this if they shrink after washing. I know I will live in these pants on weekends. Thank you, LLB! I agree with other reviewer, would love to see cords in this style and pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermonter4Life I love these jeans!
Let's first start with I NEVER can find a pair of jeans that fit. I'm a bit thick through the thighs so nothing ever fits my waist and thighs?..except THESE!! Short and chunky?. I'm 5'2" and 160 lbs (need the extra weight to stay warm ;-)
If you have this problem, try them. You won't be disappointed!! Oh yeah, needless to say, I bought 12P.

Rated 5 out of 5 by musingcrow Denim Delight
I had not been able to find a pair of jeans that I felt were comfortable for quite a few years, until I decided to give these a try.
I am SO happy that I ordered these jeans! They are the perfect fit for me. I don't like clothes that are too tight, but too loose can give me a sloppy look. These jeans are comfortable, soft, and they fit beautifully. Comfortable from top to bottom.
I would prefer a petite length of 29". At not quite 5'4" I find that the regular length is much too long. The petite length works for me, but I could do with another 1/2" or so. That's a niggling small detail when compared to the over all pleasure of these jeans.
I ordered a second pair right away. These are my new, favorite, go-to jeans and my only hope is that they will never be discontinued!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caper8 Love love love these jeans!
Jeans are so individual. For reference, I am a somewhat overweight hourglass (not a pear) who carries the extra pounds in the hips and thighs, and these jeans are perfect. I am 5'7", short waisted and proportionally longer in the leg, and ordered the medium tall. No way could I wear the regular in these jeans - the MT are barely long enough to wear with clogs, and could be worn with flip flops. The fabric is very soft (like some old favorite well worn jeans) and the fit through the hips and thighs is very flattering on my body type. I can see why someone without thunderhips/thighs might not like these. I totally love these. Stay with your true size unless you want them snug - I ordered my regular size and one size smaller - both fit, but I like the fit of my true size better and they fit longer because they are looser. Thrilled with these new jeans!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBNY Stretches out and sags, tricky sizing
I purchased these jeans in my size and when I tried them on, they fit me beautifully. I put them on the next morning and by the end of the day, they were very stretched out and sagging. I exchanged them for a smaller size and those were too snug at the waist. They eventually stretched out, but not enough to relieve the discomfort of wearing them. Needless to say, the second pair was returned, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oregonfam Tricky to get the Size right
This is not L.L. Bean's fault - it is just tricky to find the right size jeans online. I will be exchanging these jeans for a different length and size. The quality is wonderful, the material soft yet sturdy and very comfortable, and the back does not open up or bulge when you bend or squat down. I love the straight leg opening - it's perfect. The back pockets are roomy and I love that they are plain and do not have any bedazzling or thick thread or anything trendy on them. The jeans do seem to run a bit big, so I am exchanging them for a size smaller, and will also order the regular/misses instead of the petite. I am normally a petite in L.L. Bean (I am 5'4"), however in these jeans petite was too short. I am hoping the regular/misses will be just the right length, because I love everything else about these jeans. If I can just get the size right! :)
