Rated 4 out of 5 by FashionablyOld Good fit, great fabric quality and laundry result
Ordered 2 pairs of Stretch Bayside Cords Classic Fit Straight-legs, Plain-Front, Comfort Waist. Liked them a lot. If you could just make a pair: same quality corduroy, fit, leg width and length, but normal waist NOT ELASTIC IN BACK , (like Hidden-Comfort-Waist). Would be so much more stylish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TNgirlinNewEngland These pants feel great!
I have had a hard time finding decent corduroy pants these days. Thank heavens for LL Bean! I bought two pairs (navy and hunter) and am thrilled to have good quality cords again. I had to hem them and the waist is a little loose -- even for this big girl -- but not so much that they're unattractive. Even the hubs commented that he liked them. The ad says "straight leg" but it feels more like a boot cut pant which is fine. Might be a little large in the leg for some. They easily go from work to play to dinner without that worn-out look that some cords get. Love 'em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanie429 Stretch Bayside Corduroys, Classic Fit Straight-Le
These are classy looking, great fitting Corduroys. Heavier weight which is great for Michigan winters. Love these cords.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gigi2006 Missing the Favorite Fit
I live in corduroys all winter in NH and have found the stretch Bayside cords to be my pants of choice. This year these pants don't seem to be available in the Favorite Fit which fits my 5 ft., size 10 body perfectly.
Classic and Original fit just don't work for this veteran, short waisted LL Bean shopper.
In the Favorite Fit the waist sits a little lower and doesn't bind so there is no need for the Comfort Waist feature. The legs are a bit big but they're comfortable and since I'm a grandmother who is not a slave to fashion, they are fine for me. I do like the stretch in the material. It holds up better. Please bring back the Favorite Fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolinDC Make more, please
Ordered a 14 medium tall classic fit and the size, color and quality were just right. Tried to order more and they are out of stock, except for khaki which I already have. It's early November. Please make more soon. I've tried other brands and returned them since LL Bean's was best by far. Please add black and burgundy to the color selection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 02gamma Nice Cords
I ordered all the colors in these cords this year because I have lost a little weight so I needed to go down a size and switch from women's to misses. Not thinking I ordered the classic fit instead of the original fit and so the legs were just too wide at the bottom for me. They reminded me of the bell bottoms that I used to wear years ago.
The colors, material and sizes were right on just as described on the web-site.

Rated 4 out of 5 by useditandreviewedit Too bulky!
The color is perfect. The wale is perfect. The length is perfect. And I so hate having to return them, but the fit wherever the pockets are sewn to the body of the garment make the pants look bulky; they do not fall straight. It's almost as if I'm "hippy" in these pants. The waist is a wee bit snug, too, but not uncomfortable. If you can put up with the bulkiness, these are perfect and I'll envy you! 4 stars is a pretty good rating and, if I hadn't just lost weight and want my figure to look the way it has become, I'd keep all three pairs and give 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by b3ck79 These run large...
In LLB jeans I fluctuate between 8 & 10; ordered these in a 10 and they were huge - to big to even stay up. Those are being returned and I ordered sz 8 as a replacement. They are also a little loose and long, but I'm keeping them.
It's too bad the sizing system is not consistent, but I like the slacks. They are soft, have deep front pockets, but just one back pocket on the right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LTCmom Great pants!
I love these! I read many reviews before deciding to try these slacks. I am somewhat short (5' 4 1/2") and not skinny. My hip to waist proportion is not average. I need pants with some elastic in the waist to get a comfortable fit. These fit like they were tailor made for my broad bum. They are also a wonderful weight fabric, not the cheap cloth of the corduroys I purchased from a competitor last year. these will keep me warm and comfy this winter, and for several years to come! If you are thin, these are probably not the slacks for you. They will bunch in the back and probably be uncomfortable. If you need the space in the rear, these are great.

Nice changes from my last pair of these comfy cords! First, size 10P fits well, though my own measurements haven't altered since I bought the previous pair in size 12P four years ago! I suspect this is 'fashion creep', since I had to return a different style in size 12 last year because they were too large. Best of all, these good-sized pockets can hold a wallet without ejecting it when I sit or squat! I'm an active senior 5'1" and 123 lbs. and the fit is just right.
