Rated 5 out of 5 by sdwaldon Lakeshore Linen Pants and cropped pants
I think these are the best linen pants LLBean has ever had. I have 3 pairs black, 3 pairs linen, 2 pairs brown, 1 pair indigo blue, 1 pair white. I would say they were good if I bought that many. I hate to see they are being discontinued. I have tried the other ones offered and they do not fit as well as these do. I also have some cropped pants in the Lakeshore. LLBean please bring these back. They are wonderful. That is all I wear on Sundays and for dress in spring, summer and some fall. I love the quality of the linen.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great comfort
These pants run very large, I could have worn a size smaller than my normal size. The legs are quite wide, making them feel and look larger as well.
Honestly, I normally wear a petite and bought these in a regular and shouldn't have.
The linen is soft and comfy and these are great casual pants for work and easy days. I love them in warmer weather and the wide legs make wearing flannel leggings beneath comfortable for winter.
I think they look dressier in the picture than they are. They launder easily, but like most cotton/linen, need to be ironed.
I would definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CleverJane Classic style needs better linen, higher price.
The classic fit is timeless and comfortable. We want better quality in 100% linen, for this cloth looks and feels coarse and cheap. This means higher cost. Please change the cotton pocket lining in these, it dries much slower than the linen, and the cotton is uncomfortable in hot weather. Use 100% linen lining, or blind pockets to save bulk. The Premium linen line is better quality but you offer no Classic fit in it, and colors are greyed, dirty looking. The natural linen color in Lakeside is excellent. Thank you for providing 100% linen, 100% silk an 100% wool clothing, it is far more comfortable and durable than cotton, rayon or synthetics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Agglette Nice summer pants
Really like these pants! They are nice and lightweight and very comfortable. I'm about 5'7" and 130 lbs and I ordered a 6 Medium Tall, which fit very well. Yes, they do wrinkle after washing, but iron up nicely. Very pleased with them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HonestShopper Too baggy
The pants look ridiculous. They should destroy the patterns and hire new designers. It is just wasting materials. I will make legs narrower as much as I can. Most of L.L.Bean pants are too baggy and old fashioned.

I've been wearing these pants for years and they are fabulous. My one complaint is that they run too short. I buy the medium tall with the 32" inseam but REALLY could use a 33. Please don't discontinue these, or offer the new linen in this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdwaldon Lakeshore Linen pants
I love the fit and the weight of these slacks. I have them (at least two of each color) in lots of colors. Wonderful for spring and summer. Can be dressed up or worn casual. Please bring these back in brown, linen, black, and maybe some other colors like the greens you had, but maybe a coral or some new color. Love, love, these. I also have cropped pants in Lakeshore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kiwigg I just love these slacks!
Linen is the coolest fabric and I needed it this summer for traveling to a hot place, though I knew it would wrinkle once I put it on. But that's linen and it's a classic fabric. When I first washed them (12P),they did shrink in length to be too short. But here's how to undo shrinkage for woollens, and it works here, too. Put about a half-cup of white vinegar into a few inches of cold water in the washer and swish them around and let them sit for about a 15 minutes. I take them out dripping wet, and hang them upside down (legs up) from a pants hanger with clips, on my shower rod, with towels on the tub rim and nearby floor. Within a few hours they're dry except for the waistband, quite wrinkle-free, and the right length again. Haven't had to do it since. I live in an apartment, otherwise I'd hang them outside or in the garage. I adore wearing them, they feel so good, and I get compliments when I wear them. Will buy more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by esummers Hate them
Comfortable fabric but I can't iron the wrinkles out to save my life. Wasn't planning on having to have them dry cleaned in order to be able to wear them to work. These will end up being everyday-at-home pants. Waste of good money as far as I'm concerned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hoofbeatsart VERY NICE FIT
I purchased the classic fit and med tall length. I'm 5'8" and these fit beautifully. The waist and hips were nice, not loose. I really had hoped I wouldn't have to iron them, but I guess linen is linen. That may stop me from ordering another pair. Maybe if they had been a linen blend, I'd be happier. For those who don't care about wrinkles and ironing, you'll love these pants.
