Women's Fit 2 Straight Leg Chino Pants
Great ALTERNATIVE to my favorite styling - Stretch Chino Trousers
I love these chinos as an alternative to the Stretch Chino Trousers 405988-A66. Although these have straighter leg than Chino Trousers, they still look chic. I got these in white and with beige underwear they will be fine, it's a nice weight trouser! I also sized up in these to allow for shrinkage and even if a bit large, the cut of the pant allows for a nice flow from your curves. I plan to buy another pair of these in black, because black is currently not offered in teh Chino Trouser style I prefer. However, I am endorsing both items:)

These pants are a good fit and true to size. The rise is good and makes for a flattering fit. They are easy to dress up with a sweater for the office and nice for the weekend with a t-shirt and flats. I highly suggest getting them.

Decent pants but no give to them at all
I thought these were the stretch chinos that I had ordered in the past. They are okay but I don't find them very comfortable despite fitting properly. I am a size 18 and prefer the stretch chinos.

Nice fit but inconsistent
I ordered two pairs of these pants and the navy fit wonderful. The khaki, however was not the greatest fit. The waist gapped and the hips fit more snug then the navy. Disappointing, but if you happen to get a pair that fit well, you'll love them!

Won't be my go-to khakis
After a very good experience with the slim-leg Fit 2 chinos I ordered these expecting them to be my go-to straight leg chinos. Ugh! Baggy fit not at all like the other Fit 2's I've ordered and VERY stiff fabric. I'm not sure a million washings would make these soft and comfy. Furthermore, they wrinkle terribly. Returning!

Nice fitting pant; be careful of white
I ordered this pant in a size 10 with a 33" inseam, in both navy and white. I'm 5'10" and 160 pounds, and the pants fit great! They are long enough for me to wear with heels but not too long to wear with flats. The only problem I had was with the white pair; it was very easy to see through the fabric. The white pocket material on the inside of the pant shows right through, as did my underwear line (even when wearing white underwear). I kept the navy pair, but returned the white pair due to the thin material.

Don't buy these unless you like to iron
The title says it all, these pants come out of the dryer very wrinkled and it takes sizing in order to smooth them out... The fit is nice, though...

too snug in waist
Summer line of LE pants are running too snug in waist compared to other years.

Ordering online? Beware the "plumber's crack"!!
I don’t know how these pants could be construed as comfortable. I like pants to sit below the waist and typically need a shorter zipper as I am 5'2". But although these (size 4P) fit just fine in the waist with no muffin-topping, the cut of the back rise was such that I could not move, crouch or sit without the back waistband gaping or pulling down. I do have a deep arch in my back and muscular legs, but a “curvy” cut should be designed to accommodate this. When I returned them to a Sears, the lady at the Lands End counter said that items ordered online are not consistent with those sold in stores as the manufacturer is different. She had had many customers return items ordered online with similar complaints. I have had success with Lands End pants in the past, but as this store does not stock petites this inconsistency would be an ongoing problem for me, and I will have to look elsewhere to find pants that fit.

Close to being a pair of pants that fits me...
I'm in DESPARATE need of a pair of pants that fits, so I called customer service and asked for hips/waist/rise measurements on several different styles of pants. Based on that, I ordered 3 pairs, the fit 2 stretch trousers, the fit 2 straight leg, and the plain front classic bootcut. This (the fit 2 straight leg) came the closest to fitting me. I like the leg on this pant a LOT better than the trousers, and surprisingly these were actually a little narrower in the waist and hips as compared to the trousers (the sizing numbers say it should be the other way around). These sit a little lower than I expected (~3 fingers below belly button), and thus the rise is a little short for me. I'll try these in the tall to see if that combination works for me. There was still a little gappage in the waist, but with these being 100% cotton, I'm hoping they might shrink to something that works. I thought the material seemed nice on these.
