Sending back the bay side pants I just got - didn't realize they had the "comfort" fit... were not comfortable and looked bad on me. Please bring back the original pants...pleated especially without the "comfort fit! Please! Still frustrated with Ll Bean...long time "UNcustomer... again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by luby terrible fit
These pants button like men's pants, right over left, instead of left over right. That's horrible. Also the waist comes up over the bottom of my ribs, way too high. I like the fabric and look, but hated the fit and the fact that they button like men's pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tsip 2nd pair is great!
The first pair I received was defective & I had to exchange for another pair. Disappointed because I've come to expect LL Bean to be perfect every time, however; their customer service continues to be outstanding and they made sure I received the replacement pair before I moved!

I've been purchasing Bayside pants for ten years or more. The fit is reliable, because the size chart can be trusted. The pants are easy-care and have deep side pockets and a nicely tailored, buttoned back pocket. The pants are casual, but are suitable for work. They go everywhere and last for forever. It's good to know where to go when they need to be replaced: L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeaJelly I wear these pants every day*, I'm serious
*Except for when it's super hot out (though the pants are a perfect thickness, making them wearable in many seasons including summer - perhaps a little thin for very, very cold winters, but I'm bad with cold)
I love these pants. They are perfect pants. In my opinion, they look "chic" and perhaps even a little "Parisian" with the bottoms cuffed just a little.
I bought my first pair several years ago and keep coming back for more.
I would recommend them to friends -- by "would" I mean I do, all the dang time.
Buy the pants. I love LLBean.
P.S. The sizing chart is accurate for sure.

I have purchased these pants for many years! They are durable and look good. I have found them to be quite useful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by flutist Bring back pleated, plain waist, original fit!
I am very frustrated. I have been buying the Bayside Twill, Original Fit Plain Waist Pleated Pants for many years, then you stopped making them. I have tried the pleated pants with comfort waist, and find them very unattractive from the back view. The Plain Front regular waist is slightly too small. The Plain Front regular waist in one size larger is very large in the waist particularly. I see from your reviews that you have many other long-time customers requesting that you make the pleated, plain waist pants again. Won't you consider doing so? For those of us who are older, but still fit and the right weight, there are very few suitable choices. For someone like me who needs a high waist because of a high rise on my body, there are even fewer.

If you liked the curvy fit bayside twill from a few years ago, original fit is the closest I have found. Comfortable and much more stylish than the comfort waist back elastic. I wish LL Bean would bring back curvy fit styles.

I love LL Bean clothes, because of the quality, style, and fit. Some items I am still wearing after years.
Pants that are below the waist, emphasize on my figure a more square look. These Bayside pants actually fit on my natural waist, so it gives me a more feminine figure, with the curves above and below the waist. They stay more wrinkle-free and look fresher longer than other pants. The pockets are very roomy, so I can carry essential items, and not have to carry a purse. I would recommend them to a friend.
