Slim Straight Jeans: Raw-Hem Edition

Slim Straight Jeans: Raw-Hem Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans and sizing info These are my first Madewell jeans, and I'm enjoying them (mostly)! Based on reviews and chatting with customer service, I went with size 23, but I think 24 could have worked also (hard to know with final sale). I am 5'2", 98 lbs, long-waisted (24 around at smallest point, 26 around where these jeans sit), with 33 inch hips. Since size 24 measures 26 for waist and 32.5 for hips (from customer service), I realize now they would have been immediately comfortable and had a nice slightly relaxed fit. But since I thought the jeans might stretch and mold, I went with size 23 (waist 25, hips 31.5), which is snug in the waist and hips, fine elsewhere. After a day of wear, I haven't noticed bagging, and my hip bones are hoping for a little give/relief. On the plus side, there's no waist gap, and overall, I love the flattering rise, style, and quality construction. Since I'm short, I find cuffing these under works for a more polished look and cuffing over is a fun casual look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have to roll up the cuffs! I am 5'5 and 130lbs. I ordered size 25 and they're a little bit tight around the waist, but still perfectly stretchy. I'm hoping after several washes, they'll stretch out more. One tiny problem is that the raw-hem cuffs are too long. I just roll them up and they still look amazing! Sad that there weren't tall, short, regular lengths to these jeans though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fit ever! I have no idea why these jeans have not sold out! I've been looking for a new pair to replace an old other brand pair that weren't high waisted and felt my butt hung out! The fit is perfect, length spot on and all round amazing. To help the buyer... I'm 5ft6, 123lbs and ordered the size 25 (I'm typically a 25 in Madewell, generally 26" in other brands. Normally an XS and size UK8/US4 although MAdewell and JCrew I'm a 0/2). Tight in all the right places and perfect round the waist - just covering my belly button. They ankle skim but with the already frayed edges, I could cut to be a bit shorter if need be And the colour is an exact match to the picture. Buy them, you won't be sorry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the right fit at last! i tried on a bunch of madewell jeans in the store, and loved them all. however, some would be too tight in the thighs, or gapping in the waist... until i found these! finally, a pair that perfectly hugs my athletic thighs and booty without gapping at the waist! i got my usual size 26 and they're just right. at 5'0", though, i wish i could've gotten these in a petite. madewell-- maybe include instructions for us shorties to cut our jeans and recreate the fabulous raw hem at home?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I tried these on in the store a month ago just for fun and was undecided about the hem. The white stitching is really fun, the wash is a great medium, the length is perfect and hits me just below my ankle bone, and the fraying has kinda grown on me. The rise is comfortable too(I am a mid thirties Mom of three so these still suck me in). They are super comfortable, super flattering, and tts. Get your normal size. Not your normal size down because it’s Madewell stretchy size- but your true size. I actually got these in both a 27 and 28, they both fit but I like the fit of the 28 a bit better as they aren’t as tight at the waist. They don’t seem to stretch out much throughout the day which is another plus. I hate jeans that fit at the beginning of the day but not by the end. For reference I am 5’7”, 145 lbs, and again the 27 and 28 both fit me but I prefer the less restricting 28(I am a true 28/ small/medium)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I may have found the perfect jeans Love these jeans! They are high waisted but not too high (hit my belly button). They are the perfect wash - dark with a little bit of fading Not cropped Not too tight A little stretch white stitching too be "different" but not "out there" comfortable as can be. raw hem to be a little trendy. And on sale!! I am 5/6" 122 # and the 25s fit perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first pair of summer jeans Love these. The fit is on point as per the Madewell usual. It is firm enough to give you that tough denim look but has enough stretch to be comfortable for all day wear. I felt amazing when I put these on for this first time. Ready for a crop top, sun glasses, and spring sun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable fit Glad that I decided to try these jeans! They fit nicely with a little stretch. I normally wear a 27 (I am 5'6" and 133), and the 27s are perfect. I am glad to have found a jean that fits me snuggly but is also comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full Length Distressed...Yay! Looked everywhere for a distressed jean that was not a cropped jean. No where to be found. These are full length, fit just as great as all my madewell jeans and look amazing. I don't usually go for any higher rise but this are just about a mid + rise jean. Comfortable, flattering and perfect.
