Rated 2 out of 5 by tygrr94 Why the high waist?
Why would they make the waist on these jeans so high? Skinny jeans should have a midrise. Except for the color being exactly what I wanted and the fit being good everywhere else, I had to return these. I don't like the waist being so high, like momjeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Beware of Color Bleeding
As noted by others, these run a little snug in the waist. But I do like the soft material and fit in the thighs and legs. They are skinny without being as tight as jeggings.
Would caution that they are not colorfast. Color noticeably faded after washing in cold water.
Surprised after numerous washings when I tried to clean a spot with a dampened cloth, the cloth was covered in blue dye (I rubbed very lightly).
Be careful to wash only with dark colored clothing, otherwise color will bleed onto lighter items. Usually after this long I can throw jeans in with any wash since the color has "stabilized". Even after many washings they continue to fade and bleed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by midsouthmomma Black jeans are tighter than Rinsed
I so wanted these jeans in black to be "it". I had ordered the Rinsed color and the fit was great. Love them.
But the black jeans are at least 1-2" tighter in all measurements except the length. (And this was after washing the rinsed blue color but not washing the black.) So now I am back to the drawing board looking for black skinny jeans. So sad. I'm not a heavy person. 5'10 and 140 lbs but I don't like wearing a 2nd skin. I like my jeans just a little bit loose so I usually get a size 14 in MT. These were just way too tight. I guess they were made in a different factory than the rinsed blue jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by reader256 Comfortable!
These jeans fit well and the skinny leg has some stretch and fit over boots easily. They are super comfy too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shrinking Initially good fit, but as time went on.....
I had to wait a while to receive these jeans--finally got them in April. I got Black Regular length. After a number of washings in cold water (always wash my clothes in cold) and line drying, these jeans have gone from 30" inseam to 28-l/2" and they are no longer useful. I loved the remainder of the fit (although waist was a little tight for LL Bean). I like the fabric, color-fastness, etc., but I am returning an LL Bean item for the first time ever. I really wanted to be able to keep these, so I hope you'll somehow adjust the fit of this style so that they won't shrink with careful washing/drying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BelleofAmherst So comfortable!
Very comfortable. Generously sized and quite stretchy. The waist is quite high, which feels a little strange after so many years of low-rise jeans, but it adds to the comfort factor. Nice narrow, but not constricting, legs. Would buy these again, and would get these in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by midsouthmomma Perfect! Make in khaki PLEASE
These fit me great and I don't have to worry about anything showing in back when I sit down at work. Med Tall Length is perfect for me (5'10, 140 lbs) and I wear a 14 because I can't stand skin tight pants. Yes, I could wear a 12 MT but I would be miserable. (It's hot in the south) I'm about to order a black pair and I hope they are as nice as the dark wash..
Before wearing I washed in warm and tumbled dry low. No shrinkage that I could determine.
I wish LLBEAN would make these in KHAKI. It is so hard to find khaki skinny leg pants in a longer length. Impossible. Why? I've looked everywhere. Only old baggy pants seem to be made in khaki or tan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beangarb They look like jeans, feel like sleepwear!!!!!
These knit pants are so amazing! The great look of skinny jeans with the comfort of a great pair of pajamas!!!! True to size! The medium tall length is perfect for my 5'8" frame! I bought two pair in the rinsed finish, and one pair in black! I'm ready for anything!! I hope these pants are around forever!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by doorcountyshopper49 Great jeans
They were a little longer than I thought. I should have read more about the length before I bought them but the fit is great and I love the comfort. Great jeans
