Men's Plain Front Tailored Fit Pattern Linen Trousers
Decent fit, good weight
Fit: no more than typical vanity sizing (my actual waist is ~31 in, and a size 30 fits me). The Tailored Fit is by no means tight but not baggy either, a good middle ground. The inseam seems a tad long compared to other pants, but I have never had linen pants before so perhaps they drape differently.
Material: very nice weight. I bought these to wear to work in the hot summer and they seem well suited for that. The "brown large herringbone" has quite a bit of gold in it, but nothing way out there. The picture is a bit misleading in that respect.
Construction: I have not had the pants that long, but the construction seems average. Not great, not terrible.
Overall: a decent enough pair of pants.

The color is not what is in the photo
The pants are nice but the color does not match the photo. The color is gold. The color is not what I expected.

Perfect fit, Great fabric
Fit was perfect, true to size. Tailoring of hem is an added benefit and was right on. Fabric even though lilnen, was soft and had a good weight to it. Lots of compliments on them.

unique and timeless
Interesting, unique, somewhat coarse texture. Good weight, elegant while also timeless.

Pants perfect for the shorts and jacket that I had previously purchased.
The pants fit true to size. I am very happy with most of my Lands End purchases.

Machine wash/dry and shrink to fit
I purchased the goldish herringbone pants in 32"-36" and put then through a gentle cold regular washer/dryer cycle a few times. They shrank noticeably evenly in length only. The waist is a little lower (designed higher) and the legs are now almost 32" The gold color has faded and not it closer to the color online. They are rumply and look very casual without the pleat, but not like pajamas, like something for a casual day at the beach. If you do this and want the pleat, don't put them in the dryer and iron when damp (never dry).

colors off, pant cut and fabric awesome
The glen plaid is funky. Sort of christmasy? There is a neon green stripe, gold, brown, and orangish red. They look like golfing pants. The herringbone pant is not as pictured and the color of an tarnished chunk of raw gold or micah (think dirty gold). Not a great color for me, but I will keep this pair because the fit is fantastic. They are cut for a man with no-little rear, but really flatter my medium round one. They are designed to be worn higher (just below belly button) than most of my pants (on hips), but I like this style because it gives them a 1920's appeal, which is on trend at present.

Good pants, bad jacket
I like the pants and will keep them. They're a somewhat casual cut and a bit roomy, but not bad. Unfortunately, I also bought the matching jacket, which is going back. The jacket is in the style of a 1970's professor, minus the elbow patches, and is also too long in the body -- people under 6' won't look right in the jacket.
So buy these as pants, but not as part of a suit.
