Straight-Leg Jeans in Cloverdale: Selvedge Edition

Straight-Leg Jeans in Cloverdale: Selvedge Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect worn-in, vintage look Love these! The high waist hits at just the right point, and they're really flattering in the rear, too. I'm 4'11" and 95 lbs and bought a size 23. They're a little bit long on me, but I just roll them up. The wash is a perfect faded blue vintage, and the wearing on the pockets is as shown in the picture. They're super comfortable, too. Will be wearing these with vintage graphic tees and strappy block-heel sandals or ankle boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Fav Jeans I have a darn tough time finding jeans. I have a muscular build, as a result if I can get jeans over my thighs, they usually gape at my waist. The current denim trend of straighter cuts and higher waists has been tricky for me. My denim is usually close to Jeggings rather than jeans. I had just come to settle for the fact that was the only style of jeans that I could wear... Forget loose fitting jeans. Ah! But not any more. These are lovely. They may be a tad loose in the waist, but since they are a high rise, it's not that big of a deal. I have struggled with many other Madewell jeans due to too much stretch with wear, this pair however seems to be A-Okay. Thanks Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly as pictured These jeans are about as perfect as you can get, in my opinion. I can never wear selvedge because they usually have no stretch -- but these do and are fabulous. The distressing is exactly as you see in the pictures and is just enough, and so is the color. I have long been over skinny jeans and these are slim and skim the body perfectly. I am almost always a 31 in Madewell denim and took 31 in these as well. Buy a pair! They are worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft! I just received these today and I was loving them when I pulled them out of the package. I ordered my skinny jeans size instead of my boyfriend size (which is one size down from the skinnies). They are very high waisted on me, which is over my belly button, and they are looser on the leg, than shown in the picture. They fit me like the high waisted slim boyfriends, I would say. The fabric is SO soft, but not thin and the wash is beautiful. The button fly does not lay perfectly flat on me like the rigid denim does (Rivet and Thread). Still, a beautiful pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jeans!! i loved these jeans from the moment i saw them online! i initially ordered my madewell denim size of 26, and felt they were not as snug as the photos depicted- (baggier on the thigh, etc) which was great because i could order a smaller size :). i did that and ordered a 25, and while they fit, the distressing looked a i understand that it's hand distressing so there's going to be variances in different pairs. so i ordered 2 more- ya, i'm that girl. to my defense, the pocket distressing in one of the photos looked contrived and quite frankly, a little much. one of the pairs that arrived was way too yellow (tint), the other pair had intense distressing on the pockets which didn't look realistic. in any case, 4 pairs later i found the perfect match! they now fit me like the photos! i've worn them a handful of times already and haven't noticed much stretching/bagging. so, to sum it up, great soft pair of selvedge denim, slightly large, little stretching, but worth the bucks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice alternative to skinny jeans After falling in the “skinny jeans loop” I needed a different denim style so after reading some other review I decided to go for it... and I don’t regret it! The quality is good and the color is very nice. I sized down, I’m usually a size 26 in Madewell skinny jeans but I went for a size 25, at the beginning they were a bit too snuggle but in couple of wearing they were OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I wear a 29 or 30 in Madewell jeans depending on the style (29 in high risers, 30 in boy jeans) and I ordered these in a 30, mostly because I wasn't sure about the stretch or how they would sit. Also, it always feels better to have to exchange for a smaller size than a larger one, haha! These are amazing and they fit on me just like on the model. They have just enough stretch to be comfy and the denim is soooo soft. I have a feeling they'll be on heavy rotation in my wardrobe. One of my favorite features is the button fly. The legs are definitely on the cropped side for my 5'5" frame, but I can imagine them cuffed or uncuffed, with booties, chuck taylors, sandals, heels, and all kinds of outfit options. I can't wear jeans to work so I'm dying for the weekend to come so I can wear them out! Thanks Madewell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty perfect, but... So I don't typically spend this kind of money on jeans that aren't available in the store, but knowing that Madewell hasn't let me down yet size wise, I gave it a shot. Pros: SUPER cute on, just enough stretch to make me happy, waist band stays put and doesn't roll over like some of the stretchier denim is inclined to do at a higher rise. They'll look fantastic when warmer weather arrives cuffed with all my snazzy kicks for spring/summer/fall Cons: REALLY short on me, so wearing them with socks and my regular Adidas looks pretty dopey no matter what cuff I put on them(Spring weather continues to elude us, so...taller socks for a bit); a 30" length would have been more helpful here. Overall, I love them, and I think you will too, be advised on the 28" length and you won't be sorry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large I am 5’7” and 132lbs. I waited for a few reviews before ordering, and ended up ordering a size 27 because I didn’t think these would stretch much (I normally go down to a 26 for Madewell skinnies because of the elastane.) I am so bummed I didn’t go down in size for these! I knew they would be too big as soon as I pulled them out of the bag. They also do have a decent amount of stretch. The thighs are not even close to fitting like they do on any of the models. The butt fits ok on top but the bottom of the cheek area is so baggy, and I cannot stand that feeling... especially since I know how good all my madewell skinnies make my butt look! The color is exactly as pictured and the length is the same on me as the models. I wish these weren’t online only so I could try on a 26, and possibly even a 25 in store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing but short these jeans are amazing!! super soft and fit (almost) perfectly! the only downfall is these are pretty short. I am 5'10" so tall but not leggy (usually the regular madewells hit me perfectly at the ankles) and these fit me almost like capri's. I am definitely disappoint with the length but with the right shoes i can make them work. i do hope they come out with a longer version of these jeans!
