Rated 5 out of 5 by PhDBlonde Upcoming Old Lady Trying to Age Gracefully
Well, so I'm 57, 5'7" and about 145 pounds. I've put on 15 pounds since I had my hip replaced and my spine is so riddled with arthritis, that I've put on the 15 pounds because pain management is not working well. Anyhow, I finally determined that it might be time for an elastic back pant that would help me transition between fluctuating weight loss / gain--whatever. I saw these in the Christmas catalog and thought what the heck, I'll give them a whirl and they looked good in the Christmas catalog. The catalog has come a long way since Sears spun LE back off (good catalog, grateful for the spin-off). The Fit 3 is a bit generous in the seat and the crotch area. That made the legs a bit too long. Anyhow, I'm not going to fuss about it overly much--others have done that already. I ordered a size 8, in the black, and should have gone with the 6 in this particular fit. I love the quality of the corduroy fabric and got a few compliments--people say that I always look great--but hey, updates are appreciated. The pants look nice with the little sweater that was on the front of the catalog as well--professional is what someone said. Two Thumbs Up! PS I paired this with a new pair of mary jane flats with LOTS of comfy rubber---perky old lady!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JasperHiker Good enough
Like many, it is really hard for me to find pants that fit well. So, I really like the Lands End option for a "high rise" pant, as that is the only cut that fits me. I also prefer back-only elastic waist, and I love that I can specify the pant length, as I am tall, and always seem to only find "high water" pant seams. However, I need a "boot cut" leg, because of muscular calves, and these pants are just too tight in the calf. (I have to pull down my pants legs every time I stand up.) So, 3 out of 4 isn't too bad. I measured myself carefully before ordering, so the overall size is correct. The fabric is lightweight, but has held up just fine through 3 washes--and I am not gentle on my pants. for winter, a slightly heavier fabric weight would be more desirable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jewel77 Ridiculously thin material
The pants fit fine, were put together well, but the material was way too thin for pants. Typical downgrading of Lands' End products since the Sears takeover.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Misleading They do "...shout elastic waist."
The description is misleading suggesting these pants don't shout elastic pants. Maybe not for the front but look at the picture of the back view. Those 'creases' running down the backside appear regardless of wearing belt or not. Very old lady-ish. I only wear these now that I know what it looks like with long sweaters or lounging around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryMorrow I wear this pant in khakis to work every day, so I wanted cords for colder weather
These cords fit just as well as the khakis that I usually buy to wear to work. They are not heavy weight; just right!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Colanne Fit fine, fabric thin and tears
I have four pair of these pants. Each fits great at waist and hips until you bend at the waist. The thin fabric rips at the belt loops. Poor quality!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Thornton The fabric in these pants gets thinner and thinner
I like to wear cords for warmth in the winter. I won't be wearing these. If the fabric gets any less weighty I'll be able to read through them. Lands End! Please stop skimping on the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ApplePie88 Good but wrinkles easily
Cloth is very soft and comfortable, but comes out of the wash wrinkly. Would require ironing to look good. Below Lands' End normal quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hennie comfortable but fabric crushes easily
These are comfortable pants but the fabric is not substantial and crushes easily so only suitable for most casual wear. I'll get my wear out of them but would have preferred something that would stay looking good.
