Women's Fit 1 Slim Ankle Corduroy Pants
I'm shopping for more right now!
I bought these pants on sale because I am cheap, and I wanted to try them out on the cheap. Suffice to say, I'll pay full price for more if I have to.
I am 5' 1" and 130lbs--very athletic (but not skinny) build--my torso has no curves, but my thighs and bum are quite curvy. I got the red color in a 4 petite, which is what I wear in most pants. These pants fit immediately--no need to 'stretch' to be comfortable, and they do not over-stretch by the end of the day. Being so short and stocky, I often struggle to find pants that fit well, and fit how they style is meant to. These pants are super comfortable, they dont ride up or shift in the wrong ways, and they make me feel really cute and (for once) well-dressed. They fit on me exactly how this style of pants are supposed to fit, including hitting my ankle at the right place. .
The only negative I can give is that the shade of red is brighter than the picture, but I had already read that from another reviewer so i was prepared, and it's still a nice shade of red.

Not too heavy and true to size
Got a size 6 petite and they really fit. I am 5'3" and 128 lbs. Bought bittersweet for fall and red for Xmas. Also bought a size 12 red for my sister, who usually wears a size 12 and these fit her great.

PERFECT fit for me ... LOVE them!
These pants may not work for everyone, but they are absolutely perfect for me ... and that is no small feat. I am 4'11" (with the dreaded tummy bulge) and generally wear between a size 14 and 16, depending on style. Finding pants that fit me correctly is always a daunting task -- even petites are too long. As these are slim, I opted for 16P, and with a 26-1/2" inseam, they are full-length pants on me (thank goodness for no notches at the ankles). Because of my height, I prefer pants without bulk, but my days of skinny jeans are well behind me -- and again, these are perfect. They are slim, but not "skinny." I almost didn't order these, as I don't care for low-rise at all -- but based on some of the reviews I decided to try them out and am glad I did! The waistband hits right at my navel, more of a fit 2 on me. There is no extra bulk in the crotch or under the butt like so many pants seem to have. The fabric is what I would consider a mid-weight (perfect for cooler weather in Texas) and has a bit of stretch, so they are exceptionally comfortable as well. These are by far the best-fitting pants I've bought in a long time -- and the best I've ever gotten from LE. The color is pretty (vermillion), but I wish more neutral colors were available on clearance -- I would buy every color!

The Legs Are So Baggy!
First off, the colors are beautiful (I got the Dijon and the vermillion) and the light wale is PERFECT. Here's the bad news (for me anyway): like a tall reviewer before me mentioned, having long legs, they almost look more like pants that are too short than "ankle pants". I knew I was taking a risk upon ordering them, as the "high water" issue is, sadly, the story of my life...
The waist is tight and the butt/belly area is baggy, so it's lookin' a little (please excuse me, moms) "mom pants"ish. And the legs are so baggy! I thought they were supposed to be a slim cut! Oh well. I'm going to wash them and see what happens in the leg/crotch bag and sag department, and hope for the best. I just hope the waist doesn't get tighter!!
All in all, I want to love them, and the price was hard to pass up, so I'm keeping them, but I won't buy another pair.
P.S. Another reviewer also mentioned the button being on the other side. How strange! It's not bothersome, just takes some getting used to.

Love these pants
Just got my order, couldn't wait to try on these corduroys. They are wonderful. They fit true to size, and while slim through the leg, they are not "skinny" like others I've tried. They are cool as can be, without sacrificing comfort. The fabric is nice - not heavy but soft. The color (I got the cypress) is as pictured. I tried them on and haven't taken them off.

These feel great. The waist hits just below my waist and the length is just below my ankle (5'5") The Vermillion color is more orange in real life than the pic looks on my monitor but I prefer it. Great price on sale. I am considering getting light cypress because they are so comfortable. I will wash them and make sure they still fit well and make my decision. I had 4 items in my order and all 4 were winners.

Loved These- once I found the right combo!
These are great lightweight cords, very attractive finewale corduroy in wonderful colors. I'm 5'3" and about 115 with short legs- wear a bottom size 4 in most things. It took me several tries to hit on which size/length combination would work for me in this pant. Thankfully LE has a good return policy and I can bring stuff to the local Sears for refund. Their "fit 2 ankle pants" fit me perfectly in size 4 petite, so I tried 4P cords. The length was crop but the rise was a little short and waist a little big (different fit, I know... :) Turns out with this cut regular length size 2 fits me great as slim full-length pants. So I've gone with that, in several colors. Knowing my size also helps me assess for my daughter who is now 5'6" 130 with long legs (regular 4 works on her, just short enough to be ankle pants but will also work under boots come winter... or 'til she grows again). I got myself an extra black pair just this month on sale. Fantastic deal at the sale prices so I'm stocking up on colors.

Love These Corduroy Pants
Love the style and the fit is true to size. I bought a size 2 in the Light Cypress colour, which I just love the colour, and the length is perfect. I am 5' 4" with somewhat long legs for my height.

LOVE. THESE. PANTS. PERIOD.
These cords are great! I now have two pair--the off-white color and the mint green color. They are so comfy and fit great! Lands' End, make more! I would buy them in a minute if they came in really lightweight denim too! But make sure the fit is exactly the same! They are so flattering for the 40-something year old mother with some baby belly that will NEVER go away...

Corduroys are often bulky... but these are perfect! I love the lighter weight and the slim silhouette. I'm going to order another pair!
