Boys' 5-pocket Corduroy Pants
My son LOVES these cords! He doesn't want to wear anything else even when the weather is warm! He's slim & can wear these w/o a belt or adjusting the waist. It's the perfect length and extremely comfortable. The colors are also great! He really loves the blue (we also bought brown & black). No fading & holding up well in the wash (and the knees).

These cords look very nice and are a nice fit but could be a little thicker.
The cords look great now but I'm not sure how long the knees will last. Maybe they could come with the much loved Iron Knees.

I got several of these cords in several great colors and they fit my 15 year old son very well. He is thin but doesn't like the slim fitted pants that are popular right now so it's difficult to find pants for him that fit well and that he also likes. These were a hit. My only complaint is that the fabric is a little thin.

Nice pants, but beware the button!
I bought these in several colors for my boys, and the fit and quality are very nice. I love that LE offers many of their pants in slim styles. I wish these were iron knee. With three boys, I buy iron knee pants almost exclusively because they wear so great. My biggest gripe, though, is the button! The waist closes with a riveted button and buttonhole--no hidden slider, no snap. My oldest, a third grader, can't get them open on his own. Even *I* had a hard time unbuttoning them! Honestly, I think my boys might just have to wear them unbuttoned because I have bad visions of them needing to go to the bathroom at school but not being able to get their pants down. I am hoping that maybe the buttonhole will soften after a few washings so that they are easier to get on and off?!? I will be keeping most of the pairs that I bought because the colors are nice and the price is great, but I would feel a lot better about the decision if I were confident my kids will actually be able to work the button without my help.

Nice slim-fit pants
My 6-year-old granson is very slim, and these pants fit him well, though I have to turn the hem up a little. He, again, looked forward to his new cords at the beginning of the school year. Last year's pants are still in good condition, but he needed to go up a size.

Great Fit and Feel But Needs Iron Knee Treatment!
My 10 year old has been wearing these as his uniform pants for 3 years now and I would rate them a 5 if Lands End would only incorporate their "Iron Knee" technology into these pants. I have had to exchange many a pair of these pants when the knees have worn thin and ripped far too quickly. But the color, fit, and feel can't be beat (and I have looked everywhere and tried every kind of navy blue corduroy pant out there!). Lands End - please make this change!

Great jeans alternative
Perfect fit, can be casual or dressed up. Room to move without feeling bulky. Color stays true after many washes. If the fabric didn't wear thin in the knees I would rate these a 5.

Exceptional quality. Color fast with no shrinkage through years of ordinary laundering.
I have been purchasing these "cords" for my son since he was in high school. He will have his Masters' degree in May and I'm still buying them! The style changes slightly from year to year but the quality and fit remain exceptional. My son is not terribly large and swims miles every morning and although he is 22, a Lands End size 20 slim fits him perfectly. The fabric is of an excellent quality, regardless whether a wide or pin wale corduroy. The pants wash and wear well - for years, as a matter of fact. The color stays fast and they don't shrink. My son went to college in New England and is going back for more schooling this coming fall. These pants are perfect and so much more versatile than denim in the wet and cold. There is nothing worse that wet jeans when it's really cold. I wish that they were sold year round rather than seasonal. Whenever I see them on sale, I buy several pairs. Thanks. Hope this helps.

The slim fit is perfect for a tall slim boy and construction durable and good-looking
I bought 2 pair of these pants for my son in the fall and they wear so well. They launder well and don't wrinkle if you get them out of the dryer promptly. The color has not faded and they are very comfortable. I just bought 3 more pair since they are on sale and he has grown almost 2 inches since September! I buy ALL his pants from LE because the slim fit is perfect for my beanpole son!

Great quality and fit
These are great corduroys. They fit well, have an adjustable waist, and the style is very nice. I will buy more of these for my three boys.
