Rated 5 out of 5 by NHLLBOutletBoy A business casual day must have
I am very pleased with these pants. I ordered two pairs online. The fit is good and the crotch does not ride up. There is nothing worse than sitting down and getting a crotch wedgie. No worries with these pants. The right side leg pocket is excellent for your cell phone. The pocket does not bulge out either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MathewA Don't buy these
I bought a pair of these cords a few months back and they were great. However, I just bought an identical size pair and they were all wrong. The waist was 1" smaller than the label stated and the legs were 1" shorter. A serious lack of quality control. I see also that I have to 'pay all postage required' to send them back to LL Bean because I live in Canada. This can't be right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DADDYOYO EXACTLY what I wanted
Haven't had casual cords in several years. Looked for different jean style cords and found very little selection at the mall, online, etc., until I saw these. Took a chance and ordered 3 pair. They arrived today and the fit is absolutely PERFECT as to length, seat and waist. The construction is sturdy yet soft. Wife loves them, too. They will instantly become an immediate go-to from late Fall to early Spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Best Pants Yet!
I'm writing this for my college-age son who would review it if he could text it! I bought four colors of these amazing pants, since he wears only casual and cargo style pants. He now wants the remaining 2 colors.
The thing he likes the best is the stretch corduroy material. He is very active and the stretch allows full range of movement, aided also by the gusseted crotch. They wash and dry without shrinking or getting out of shape. They also can be worn multiple times before washing and do not get baggy or stretched out. I don't know why only women's pants come with stretch, as my son says the stretch makes these the most comfortable pants he has ever had.
The small pocket on the right leg is just a bit small for this current generation of phones and needs to be made just a bit bigger, but it works for a smaller set of keys. The other pockets are generous and the waist size its exactly true to size. Some reviewers claim that they run a bit short. My son wears a 34" insearm and these were about 1/4" short, but that still worked on him. The pants have a slim fit, but still work with his muscular thighs. The fit is true to size in hips and waist with roomy-enough but not baggy legs. The fabric is a true stretch corduroy, with medium weight and is not flimsy.
All in all, a great pair of pants that any guy would be comfortable wearing for any casual occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Portlandbiker Good for NW winters
These are the best pants for Portland winters. Good enough for the office, and comfortable for home, and really well made. I bike to work and don't have to wear rain pants. Portland rain is light, but cold, and these pants wick the rain away while keeping the wind out. And the side pocket is perfect for my reading glasses, which, unfortunately at my age, I need for anything close enough to touch. I have worn them for an entire season (almost) and just really think they are wonderful.

These pants exceeded my expectations. They are extremely soft and comfortable and they are well-made. I would definitely recommend these. They are also true to size and they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by paxcanfield Terrific cords
Wow, these are really comfortable pants. They're not formal--just five-pocket, jeans-style corduroys--but they look really sharp. I like the way they fit--they're not baggy, like some natural-fit (dad-style?) pants. Nice cold-weather alternative to khakis or jeans.

Bought 2 pairs for my husband (brawn and dark loden, both 31W 36L) when they were on sale. I was a little bit worried about size ( my hubby is size 31-32w in other jeans, more 32w lately). The cords fit him snag in waist, but not too snag to make him uncomfortable, I like his rear view in these cords - very sexy. He love the side pocket for his smartphone. Adding stretch into fabric is a great idea - it makes pants so comfortable whatever you do, they don't loose shape during wear and washed beautifully, no shrinkage after drying on low ( I checked inseam before and after - 35", the previous reviewer was right - they run a little short). I'll be getting another pair for my hubby, may be for Valentine's Day present. Thanks for another great product LL Bean

Rated 3 out of 5 by shoppingpro too short
Bought these for my son - he wears a 36" inseam. He had them on for Thanksgiving and they looked short- I've washed them in cold water- low and behold- I measured the inseam and it is 34"!!!!
Don't think they shrunk- I just think they were never 36". The only 36" inseams that are long enough are the lined jeans- go figure
