Women's Fit 2 Ponté Trousers
I was a bit skeptical to try these pants after sending back the new women's boot cut ponte pant which was a bad fit all around, but these are PERFECT! In fact they are the probably best LE pants I have ever tried. Dressy enough for work but SO comfortable!, I want to wear them every day! The leg is kind of flared at the bottom which is flattering and the length (32") is JUST RIGHT for me (5'8")! Also - NO pockets to gape out at the side like the ponte boot-cut pant. I will order more!!!

Best work pants ever
I love this pants. The material is thick enough for the winter and yet it drapes perfectly. It runs a little big but not too much. I washed them and they came out looking like new with no wrinkles or fuzzies. I will order another pair in gray and in brown if they ever offer them in that color.

Like the pants but the sizing is not consistent
These pants are comfortable and look dressy enough to wear at work. Ordered a pair in black and a pair in navy in size medium and although the navy fits perfectly, the black is much tighter at the waist. So, I am returning the black. Also, the ties at the waist are barely sewn to the pants and get loose after the first wear.

Dressy yet comfortable
I liked these pants so much I bought them not only for myself, but for my daughter an elementary school teacher as well. For me they are nice and comfortable and don't show wrinkles after a long day on the road. For my daughter, they allow her to get down to the kids level easily. They run a little large, so if you are in between sizes, you may want to size down. They wash beautifully, I only line dry my dress clothes, so I can't say how they are after coming out of the dryer.

These trousers are amazing!
I love the fit of these trousers! They are flattering and so comfortable to wear. They are a breeze to launder and only need a quick iron to make them look as if they were brand new. I have three pair of these pants and would buy them again in a heart beat!!

Making the perfect pants
Last year I purchased the ponte knit ankle pants. Loved the fabric and the fit. Hated the ankle length but I got them on sale, so I just let out the hem and wore them with boots. I still love them as winter pants but am limited on what to wear them with (yes, I am talking shoes). The trousers went on sale this year so I went ahead and tried them. They looked like sweat pants on me, and the waist (as other reviewers noted) was really tight. They also shrank in length even though I washed them as directed--I should clarify this as one pair shrank while the other did not. I pulled out my sewing supplies. I now have the perfect Lands End ponte pants. I moved the clasps and buttons just 1/4" over and took in the legs so they were a trimmer silhouette. They no longer look like sweats. They look and feel beautiful. I love this fabric. Lands End, will you please offer better length/leg width choice in these pants? They can and should be amazing pants.

I really like the cut of these pants, they are exactly the cut I would expect from pants called trousers. Very flattering! They look great for work/dress with a button down or a fitted sweater. And also very easy care!

Okay, but glad I bought them on sale.
Overall, these pants fit well. The waist fits me perfectly, but gapes a bit through the zipper when sitting. The pants close with a button and two hook and bar closures. Since I got the pants two weeks ago, I have had to re-attach both bar closures twice and now one of the hooks has come off. These pants are not too tight, so that is not what is causing them to come off. This shouldn't happen on a well-made product.

My favorite pants
I'm back for another pair. These pants are comfortable and look great. The fit is perfect for me so I may have to have them in every color.

I ordered petite, and these are labeled petite, but they are not petite. I measured the inseam, and without stretching the fabric at all, I got 30.5 inches, not the 29.5 they are advertised at, which is already too long for petite pants. I am 5'2" and with a 2 1/2 heel, they were still way too long. They have a wide, clunky looking leg. I don't know why there are no pants with a normal leg, not skin tight, not baggy, and I don't know why Lands End is no longer selling actually petite pants. The pants are OK feeling for work, comfortable without looking like sweats, so if you are not petite, maybe they will work for you.
