Women's Fit 2 Mid Rise Stretch Chino Trousers
Perfect fit, love the material
September 8, 2014
I'm sorry to complain but I do NOT like the options available for women "of a certain age." I am a tall, slim, senior woman whose options become more and more limited as vendors try harder to get the young people to purchase their products and completely ignore those of us who like a little discretion in their clothing. Whatever happened to clothing to suit older, NOT overweight people. I am 6' tall and wear a size 2 or 4 and I defy you to find a decent pair of pants that actually comes somewhere near to my waist AND is long enough. Every company who offers a "long" length starts at no smaller than a 6 and Land's End is no exception, though they used to be. At one time they offered what is now insultingly known as "Mom" jeans that could be hemmed to a proper length. Now all they offer in a "fit 3" is elasticized pants and none of those are offered in a small enough size to fit me.
I realize I'm taking my frustration out on Land's End but they are not the only ones guilty of this. All companies seem to have forgotten that there are those of us who have worked at maintaining a healthy weight and size and now there's little or nothing for us to wear.
The rise on these pants, though hemmed to order are so low that I'm afraid of overexposure if I should raise my arms above my head. I would not be insulted or embarrassed to wear "Mom" jeans (or other pants in that category). Do manufacturers not realize how much money they are losing by catering only to the young? I, for one, would be willing to pay extra for pants that actually fit me and I'm sure I'm not the only one!
All that being said, the material quality is excellent but that's all I can say for these pants. I returned them. I am VERY unhappy in case someone out there didn't notice it.

These fit perfectly when I first put them on...after sitting in them for about 15inutes the front got so baggy they just wrinkled all over. Nice fabric but just not right for me.

Sizing has changed
I have two pairs of size 12 petite from a couple of years ago and they have been staples in my wardrobe. I love the trouser legs as they fit looser than straight or boot cut and are more appropriate for work. I have outgrown them so ordered 14's - the 12s are just tight (I can still get in to them) so I didn't even think about it. I was scared I was going to be swimming in the 14s. Turns out they fit exactly the same as my old 12s. Not exactly what I was looking for. I think they will be going back to exchange for 16s. I am a perfect LE medium on top and other size 12/14 items from LE fit wonderfully so ordering a 16 is very odd. Overall, they are a wonderful pant and great fabric - they just fit smaller than they used to.

These pants fit great.
I love the overall look and fit of these pants. And being that I'm short, I love the free hemming!

Nice crisp fabric.
Nice crisp fabric. I still wish that they were fit 3 as I like my pants to fit at the waist (I have one) and wear a belt. True Lands End quality which is always gratifying.

I love the pants if they weren't so wrinkled after washing. The fabric is thick enough that you can't see through it, which is a plus. I really wanted some white pants and these would have been perfect without the wrinkles. I just have to press them. Fit great.

I love these pants!
I ordered these in walnut. The color is perfect. The fit is perfect. The quality is terrific. I am so pleased with these pants, I ordered them in the grey color. Since this style didn't have more colors I needed, I ordered another style in the the same fit because I'm so delighted with these. Thank you Lands' End!

Didn't work for me
I like Lands End a lot and I'll continue to buy their clothes, I have found a lot of my plus-size clothes with them, but these pants don't work for plus-size women. I bought a 20WP and the fit itself is okay but they expand throughout the idea making you look like you're wearing mom pants. The issue is the material, they lack structure.
