    I ask my friend to bring the pants that I loaned him last time. I say:

    A promise is a promise, and you said you'd bring my pants, so if you don't bring it this time, I would/will very disappointed.

    Are both will and would useable here?

    Not a teacher.

    Never heard of the verb "disappointed". Perhaps you mean "be disappointed" or "get disappointed" or "become disappointed"?

    If you don't bring my pants, I will be disappointed."
    If you didn't bring my pants, I would be disappointed."
    This pattern is worth remembering, as it occurs a lot.

    I use 'lend' for the verb and 'loan' for the noun. If I lend you my pants, I have given you a loan of my pants.
