Rated 5 out of 5 by Most flattering fit The rail straight jeans are my favorite - such an incredibly flattering fit was so happy to see them offered in black. I am 5'5 115 lbs and size 25 30 inseam fits perfect. October 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are great jeans. These jeans are very flattering, not too low. I really like the fit. They make your legs look long and narrow. October 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit!! I am 5'4 size 4 and have hips the short is perfect fit because the length is long enough to still wear heals. Love the classic pocket without bling fits the JCrew standard of fashion at its complete best!! October 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great "Go To" Basic I bought the rail straight in Madewell denim and loved them so much I just had to have a second pair. So I got these in black frost. I don't get the "frost" bit... to me they're just black, but whatever. They're great basic wear any day, anywhere wear. LOVE THEM! July 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Will purchase again! I am so pleased with these jeans...I usually don't have much luck when I buy jeans online, and have to return for one fit reason or another, but these fit perfectly and were flattering. So surprised as I am neither thin nor in my 20's. I did size up in the waist to ensure that they were not tight and I was not disappointed, also I ordered a 30" inseam so I could wear them with flat sandals and clogs. Perfect! Most definitely will buy the rail straight jeans again. April 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking jeans Great fit straight out of the mail. Good quality and color. February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Favorite Jeans These jeans fit me so well. They are comfortable (don't pinch anywhere) and have the perfect leg width. They are straight but a very slim cut, and yet are a nice break from the skintight jeggings that are everywhere now. The perfect medium. They are just amazing everyday jeans that keep me comfortable and looking put together. I have two washes and they both fit close enough that I wear the same size (sometimes different washes come out to wildly different sizes). Also, wear the smallest size you can button, as they stretch to fit you after a couple wears. Madewell, please never discontinue the rail straight!! I love them!! February 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super cute but run small These jeans are super cute but they run a little small. They fit tighter on me than my others. They are still great. They just don't have enough stretch. December 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Flattering and comfy Great looking good quality jean with a nice color selection. August 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slightly less perfect than the lighter wash Rail straight are the best, and a good value. I bet I will love these, as they mold to fit, but right out of the bag the lighter wash was a bit better. Still, these are a great slim jean without squeezing and smooshing. May 17, 2013
