Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable wearing jeans ever! The fit is perfect everywhere. The grade of cotton is not too thick or coarse, they are so awesome. The wash is perfect. I really love these jeans and if this style came in more washes and distressed I would buy those as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite jeans As a cyclist with very muscular legs, I'm fully embracing the boyjean trend over skinny jeans. I'm 5'5" and 135 lbs and the 27 was a nice loose fit. I do have to wear a belt, but if I went down a size they wouldn't have the same slouchy fit. I was worried they were too tight when I first tried them on, but they've loosened considerably after two wearings. I'm not crazy about the wash, but I think that's a matter of personal preference. I love that these aren't covered in holes, as some boyjeans are, making them more appropriate for my office. They look really cute with a pair of heals and a blazer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavier denim The jeans I've been wishing for, no holes, heavy denim, light wash, not baggy, not tight. The rise is perfect also. Got them in my regular size and one size smaller. Kept the smaller one. They did shrink up a bit more than I thought they would in the length and waist. Warm wash and line dry, no dryer. If they go on sale I'll get more! Great job, Rivet and Thread.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First pair of boyjeans from Madewell and I like At first I wasn't crazy about the wash but I tried it on with a few different tops and it grew on me. I'm 5'3" and they are a tad too long, when I roll them the roll is huge so I'll probably hem them a little. I would agree they run large, I ordered down to a 29 from my normal 30 based on other reviews and they were a little snug at first but after I moved around in them for a bit they loosened up quite a bit and were good. I have quite the round backside so maybe I could have gone with my normal size but with wear and washing these should continue to improve and fit better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great boy jean I am usually a 30 and ordered a 29 as suggested by other reviewers and they fit great. I got multiple compliments on them. Love how sturdy they are and the button fly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size down Like others have stated, these jeans run quite large. I sized down but could have probably sized down again. Very comfortable but, for those of us who have no backside to speak of, regardless of the number of squats we do, these may appear a little droopy. However, still darling and the fabric is fab! Hopefully these will shrink a bit. I haven't worn them as of yet, other than to try on, so I can't speak to whether they will stretch throughout the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these but wish I had sized down I love these pants but wish I had sized down. I normally wear a 27, sometimes even a 28, but the 27 of these is just slightly more slouchy and loose than I would like. I've washed and dried twice to try and shrink too. Otherwise basically perfect boyfriend jean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Boy Jean I've found I love these jeans. Just the right amount of fit, skim and bag. I almost bought a size up as they were just a bit snug in the change room, but I'm glad I didn't, these have loosened up a lot. Good solid construction and weight of the denim. Really happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome jean this was a great jean, but i am a standard 28 in all madewell jeans, this was the first jean that i needed to size down in. the wash was great, the weight was amazing. i would have given it 5 stars if the size was right on. i bought this with 2 more pairs of jeans in a size 28, the rivet and thread selvage boy jean and the rivet and thread slim boyjean. both fit like all my 28's in your bottoms, but i would have had to go with a 27 instead with this style. this jean would be even better just a bit tapered. overall a good jean.
