Definitely Seconds From Lands End

Reviewed by Addie from New York on Sunday, November 2, 2014
Between last year and this year, I ordered quite a few only to end up returning/exchanging them. Altogether I kept 4 pair of black pants and realized that two were a good hem length longer than the other two, which were the same size. I've worn these same Lands End pants for years, buying them from the actual website when they are on sale. I've gotten them for $20 (down from their list price of $39), so when I saw these last year, I jumped at the chance of getting more for a third of the price. Boy was I wrong. I have a small waist, and usually get an XS, but these were extra tight in some, length and width of the legs were not consistent and this was in the same size and same color where the specs should be exactly the same. They are not. I tried buying two again the beginning of October, and same problem. On these the outer seam on the legs were not made well and missing the corduroy. It is hit or miss with these and if you have the time and patience to buy and return, buy and return to get a few pants that fit, good luck. For me, I am done. Getting something at a really low price is great, but the hassle of returning/exchanging, even with STP new way of doing that, it is time consuming and I would rather buy these directly from Lands End, and if (which has never happened), there is a problem with a possible defect I know I will have no problem returning it and getting a perfect pair directly from the company. Even this company has a not so perfect section, but I have never seen these pants listed there. There not so perfect listing are really minor things like stitching, not fit, where as these are definitely seconds, some worse than others. If you don't know how these pants are suppose to look and fit, you may not be as particular as someone who has actually bought these from Lands End.
