My husband's favorite dress pants
We have now had these pants in the lovely heathered brown color for 2 months. They are really quite wonderful. No pilling. Soft hand, almost like a cashmere blend. My husband wears them once or twice a week to work, despite many other choices in the closet. He usually wears the wool year-rounders, tailored fit, size 35. These only come in even sizes, so we tried the 36, it was perfect. I'm taking that to mean they are a little tighter in the hips and legs than the year-rounders as they are not at all baggy. These are a perfect winter dress pant, and go very well with Harris Tweed vests and sports coats. We hope that Lands End will come out with other colors -- a deep olive or Loden green would be great! Have just ordered a second pair in the light gray -- not his favorite color, but these pants are superb. Getting them on sale is an almost unbelievably good value.

Great fit, color, and material
I'm a 30" waist and 30" inseam, and it was a pleasure to find wool trousers whose "tailored fit" description was accurate for me. Not too tight like a slim fit, and not too baggy like a classic fit. The color is distinctive and as described: a dark brown (it's true that in some light they look dark grey, but if charcoal is the color you want then try the year rounders). Wool blend means nice drape and warm for winter days. Definitely a step up from daily work chinos, these trousers go nicely with a classic Navy blazer. Four out of five because I've noticed an odd wrinkle on the backside; after hanging up for a day I'd expect this to have "fallen out" by now. Even so, I decided to buy a pair of charcoal grey year rounders because these were a success.

Re: Different color
I ordered the dark espresso heather for my son. Online the color looked like a dark gray. However, in person, it is more of a dark brown. We are still undecided if we will return them because they are well made and tailored nicely. I wish they were truly a gray:(

My new favorite pants
Seriously, these are great pants. Warm without being heavy; I look for an excuse to wear them.

Beautiful pants -- bit surprised by sizing.
Great cloth, nice drape, trim and well-fitted through the seat and thigh. Slim but not ridiculous looking -- quite classic.
Only thing that surprised me was the fit of the waist. Most LE clothes are actually bigger than tagged. For instance, the official waist measurement in the item dimensions for the Comer 608 Slim Fit chinos is 35.75" for a size 34.
I found that the waist size on these was much, much closer to the tagged 34 than the vanity sizing of their other pants. I haven't measured, but I'd guess it's between 34.0 and 34.5". So, when you order, you may want to size up one from your usual LE waist size.

Solid winter pants
A nice feeling set of trousers that ought to hold up great in the winter time. As mentioned elsewhere, the fit is a bit billowy in the crotch, so I will likely want to wear something that will hang down a bit, like a sweater or untucked shirt, vs. tucking in a dress shirt. Still, a fair value and they seem nice and thick. Sizing was just about right, I'm typically a 35 in other brands and went for a 36, should give me just enough room to enjoy that extra helping at thanksgiving, but I probably could have gone with a 35 to get rid of some of the "billowyness".
