Women's Starfish Refined Stretch Pants
Great weekend pant
These pants are very comfortable, and a much higher quality than I was expecting. I will definitely buy more of these. The color is not what I was expecting - the color was "Smoke Brown Heather", which looked more like a grey color on the website (and this is the color I was expecting). However, the name "Smoke Brown Heather" is an accurate description of the color, so I am not complaining. It is a nice, neutral color, and I will definitely get a lot of use out of this item. This was part of my first order from Land's End, and I am impressed by the quality of all three of the items I ordered.

I wear a lot of knits from other companies and thought I would try the starfish pants since they were on sale. I will use them mainly for relaxing at home and so the color wasn't too important. They were a nice surprise--very soft fabric, well cut, and attractive. I wear a size 8-10, and the medium is a little roomy on me overall--a little large in the waist, relaxed in the hips, and about an inch too long. However, they suit my purpose for getting them and look forward to getting more,.

I love these "stylish" knit pants!
I like to wear traditional type sweat pants around the house, but my adult daughter does not let me wear them out of the house! I have to do that when she is not around. I bought a pair of these more stylish Starfish knit pants in a dark gray at the LE shop in Sears, and noticed that the Medium fit me the way I like them - I like them long as I have long legs, and I prefer that the waist is loose. So the Medium fit me a bit big. I am 5'6" and weigh about 140 pounds. I went ahead and ordered another pair in the slate brown as they were on sale, and they also fit the way I liked them. I have washed and dried the gray pants and am happy to say they kept their sizing and shape well. Now I have two pairs of knit pants - don't call them "sweat pants" - I can wear out of the house and not look around to see if my daughter is watching me!

Love these pants
The pants usually fit great, although the sizing isn't always consistent. I take a size large and one pair can sometimes be a little bigger than the other, but that isn't a deal breaker for me. I work in an office and we wear office casual. I wear these to work sometimes. They are very comfortable when you sit and work on a computer 9 hours a day. I don't find they fade or stretch out.

Faded shade of brown, fits big
I have these in navy and black, and they have faded terribly. Got this in slate brown, and comes looking too faded. This color also fits larger. Will be returning this color. Please make them fade resistant!

great quality, great feel
my favorite slouch pants! I normally wear an 'M' but only need an 'S' in these. However, they run a bit short in regular. I am 5'10" and will get the tall length next time I order. If you keep in mind they run a little small and a little short, you can't go wrong. Waistband is fabulously wide and really does sit at the waist. Fabric is thick enough for the winter season. I reckon, depending on where you live, these pants would be too warm to wear in the summer.

best fit ever
these are the best pair of pants yet. they are very comfortable and definitely keep their shape. i have medical issues with my stomach swelling and pants with small elastic waists bands were just not making things any better. i tried these pants and the minute i put them on, i had no regrets. they are perfect for me. i liked them so much, i came back and bought all the other colors. i have one wish, i wear juniors sizes still and wish they came in 9's or 11's.

Limited tall sizes
I am 5'10 so I was really happy to find pants that actually fit well and were long enough. I had previously ordered several pairs in different colors. I came back to order more and now it seems that tall sizes are limited or available in "skinny leg" only. What a disappointment! Guess I will have to go elsewhere.

Used to be good - sizing and fit now iffy
Ordered blue and black a year earlier - several sizes due to these running so large - so was happy to purchase again in different colour. These are no longer cut the same. The drop from waist to hip is less, so they no longer fit at the waist. They fit more like high hip, but don't want to stay there, so they ride up looking awful and feeling worse.
Sizing is now truer to fit - I used to have to buy medium when I am an XL. Fine if you know this in advance. I was trained to buy two sizes smaller than actual - now I order based on experience and end up with something that doesn't fit. Really annoying me Lands End - most likely never going to risk buying these again.
When you're busy it's hard to get things shipped back - wrapping, hauling to post office. Can't rely on your fit or sizing, and sitting with a backlog of undesireable stuff that will no doubt end up at the Sally-Anne when I purge. Used to be a happy customer, but no more starfish for me.

Sizing runs larger in discontinued colors
I love these pants. They are comfortable and so easy to wear. I wear them mostly for my days off so I can be comfy, but still "dressed" enough to run out for errands or meet a friend for coffee. I have however worn a pair out for an evening paired with a tunic sweater, scarf, and loafers. I ordered three pair at once - two of the new colors and this one pair in a discontinued/clearance color - beware that the clearance pair are roomier than my other two. They are okay, but a bit more loose and slightly longer than I'd like. The other two fit perfectly. I am 5'6", 32 in inseam, 140 lbs and ordered size small based on many reviews that they run large in general.
