Yes, pants are too long but worth hemming. Linen is smooth (not scratchy) and has a slight sheen. The elastic waist is smooth, not bunchy-looking. I iron them but they actually don't look that bad not ironed.

I Have These in Every Color
I love these pants. They are so comfortable in the spring and summer. They do not seem to wrinkle as much as I expected, even though they are linen.
Almost a great purchase
I have ordered7 pairs of these pants over the past year. The first time I ordered 3...of the 3 only one had a waiste that wasn't defective...2 were far too loose. I was able to take the waistes in myself so could wear them and they fit perfectly. A couple of weeks ago,I ordered 4 pair, hoping the waiste problem had been resolved. It had not. One pair fit perfectly, 3 had huge waistes. This is clearly a manufacturing defect. I fixed the other 3 and they now fit fine. Someone in quality control needs to tell the manufacturer that the waiste should be smaller than the hips!!! Other than this defect, these pants are great so someone please correct the problem!!!! Re my ratings...they are lower because of the waiste defect. I would recommend them to others after warning them that they might have to fix the waistes.
Perfect waist, gererous POCKETS!!, generous leg width (thank you). They need only hemming - but it is worth the trouble. Had to resew the seat seam on one pair ( have all colors now). Linen is linen - if you like it these are light and breezy. Enjoy!

Very Nice Linen Pants
Love the fabric of these pants. I am 5'4"" usually wear a 10. I ordered a size Large based on other comments because I wanted them to be a bit baggy. The Large was way too big. I exchanged it for a Medium and they are still a bit roomy but I love them. They accidentally went in the dryer and did not shrink. (I knew they were going to be long when I ordered them. I hemmed them to fall at the ankle.) I wish the Territory would carry these in black.
Nice, with a few caveats
These are good looking and comfortable, with a nice medium-weight linen that hangs well. Not sure they are the most flattering pants I've ever owned, but I decided I didn't care since they'd dress up or down easily and feel great on, whether just for a few hours or all day. They are a little long; after washing they are close to fine (I'm 5'6""+ and prefer my pants long). Also feel a bit short in the rise to me, but the elasticized waist helps with that.
Comfortable, casual or dressy
The pants are comfortable, a nice weight and do run a bit large. They can be dressed up or more casual depending on your needs. They are loose, flowing and have enough weight to give them what I would refer to as movement. If you have a â€œthickenedâ€ mid-section as I do as you grow older, they are comfortable and forgiving. The pockets can actually hold something as well. They are a bit short in the rise, but not bad. The length is definitely long, good if you like wearing heels. If you wear mainly flats you may want to plan on hemming them. I am 5â€™6 Â½â€ with long legs, short torso, weight about 170 (sigh) w/thick waist. The large size more than adequately fits, if that helps you decide. Iâ€™ve liked them well enough to have 2 pair.
great for curvy figures
These pants are a nice weight and great if you are smaller in the waist, and larger in the thighs and hips. They dress up nicely, but also have a casual look with less dressy tops. The only drawback with them is the lower rise. It works for me because I am short-waisted, but if you are long in the waist and curvy it might not work.
My GoTo Summer Pants
Ordered these in chalk, which is a natural linen color, not white. The pants fit well, I appreciate the length and the rise, which isn't so high that they come up to my chest! The look is pure summer casual and easy, and 100% linen gives them a higher end look and feel. I know I'll get great use out of these, and will probably order in other colors as well.
Great color (grapefruit) and fit!
These linen pants are a really pretty color and exactly as shown on the website (grapefruit). I was concerned about the waist after reading all the reviews that said it was way too big. But some said it was just fine, so I decided to take a chance. They came today, and the waist fits, and the length is perfect. I got M, which, for me, translates to a 10 in numbered sizes. I have other linen pants with an elastic waist, and I really like them. Very easy to put on and off, and very comfortable. I usually wear my shirts outside the pants (not tucked in), so the elastic doesn't show. You could always add a belt if you want to tuck your shirt in. Highly recommended!
