Slim Straight Jeans in William Wash

Slim Straight Jeans in William Wash is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect straight leg jean I was looking for a jean that was not skinny but still slim and this checked all the boxes. I did opt to have them hemmed up about a quarter inch just to have that cropped look with booties--as shown in the picture. so glad I purchased these--great alternative to a skinny jean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Will Replace All My Skinnies I haven't touched my skinny jeans in about a year, and while I love my Cruiser straight jeans, I felt like I needed a pair that was just a bit more slim to balance out voluminous and oversized tops. In come the Slim Straight. They fit just like a high rise skinny up top, with a little extra wiggle room in the calf and leg. Some other denim brand sell this as a skinny, but don't be fooled - these aren't anywhere near denim leggings. I'm waiting until they come in more washes. I'd love to see a dark rinse, black and white. Keep us posted, Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect straight leg jeans! I spent months trying on straight leg jeans and could not find anything that was flattering! These are perfect! Tight in all the right places but still has a more relaxed feel than skinny jeans. The denim has a nice stretch but does not lose its shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy grail jean I only wear madewell denim. This is one of *the* best styles yet. My favorite used to be the rail straight. These are flattering in the same places (butt and upper thighs) but have a slightly higher rise. They also have an ever-so-slight crop that make them perfect for flip flops OR booties. I am a poor student but I loved them so much I bought a backup pair. It is nice to see a decent wash with minimal distressing. I am long and slim but have a little extra in the butt and thighs, so if your body type is similar, buy these! If it's not, you'll still love them. You can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans I just cleaned out my closet and gave away old jeans that do not fit will. I bought these and LOVE them. They fit great and the fabric is amazing... wish they came in other colors. I will order another pair for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Madewell Denim in a Long Time My new favorite jeans. Stretchy and snug, and perfect for petite women. I cuff them slightly at the bottom, and they are my everyday/nightime go to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible ! I thought my fav jean was Madewell's skinny but now I have a new love! This jean is so comfortable and has just enough wiskering to be nice & soft on the thighs. True to fit with a 10" rise for waist comfort. I am 5'4" 158 lbs and ordered a 30. No hemming required! You will love this jean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These jeans are perfect. Stretchy but feel like real denim, not cheap jeggings. The slim leg is perfect and the length is great with booties or my slip on vans. Have worn them pretty much every day since they came in the mail and no signs of stretching out at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For one jeans fit like the image These jeans are seriously so gorgeous. I've been noticing a lacking in my wardrobe for so long, and I think I finally found what I'm looking for. These are seriously the best straight leg jeans ever (that actually fit straight!!). It's a beautiful dark wash with slight whisker details, which I am a huge sucker for, and the high waist will seriously suck you right in. I've always had slight gripes with how "straight" jeans would slightly cling to my thigh area and give an awkward presentation around that area, but these actually go straight down. I don't agree with reviewers who say these stretch throughout the day, they are stretchy, but I've worn them for two days in a row and they haven't stretched or sagged on me. I'm 5'3" and 105 pounds with slightly longer legs, and I had to cuff them by about an inch (may hem, although I don't want to risk messing with the fit), but they cuff so beautifully it wasn't even an issue. I purchased these in a size 24 and they fit TTS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these - bought two pair I bought two pair and they have been in extremely heavy rotation for the last few weeks. I love the waist-height, the length, the slim/straight leg. Please, PLEASE, offer them in a darker, more professional wash. I would definitely buy two more pair!!! 5'3", bought my normal size 26. I wear them either with loafers on weekdays or tight-rolled with casual sneakers on the weekends.
