Product Details
Our latest take on a straight leg, the Alley Straight is the perfect slim-but-not-too-slim shape (and has a longer inseam for a deliberate "pooling" effect at the ankle. What's that? It's our design team's way of saying the leg is meant to bunch up a bit for a laid-back vibe). Let's just say that this pair has a little attitude (plus, it's made from our special denim that has tons of stretch, never bags out and does life-altering things to the rearview).

Alley Straight Jeans in Raw Wash

Alley Straight Jeans in Raw Wash is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit and Fabric I am becoming such a fan of Madewell denim! This is my first pair of Alley Straight, and they are a great fitting and tailored looking jean. The raw wash is a dark denim that's not too heavy and will be a nice weight for Spring and Summer. The fit is straight but not skinny, which makes these a great pair to dress up or wear to work. I took advantage of the complimentary hemming through my local store and have been very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome jeans This is my third pair of Madewell Alley Straight jeans and they're pretty much all I wear. No sagging in the rear, which is always a plus. Please keep making these!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic jeans The online description is accurate, most of my comments are the same, so I won't reiterate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Dark Jeans I took a chance and ordered these jeans on a big sale. Am I ever glad I did. I've searched forever for straight jeans that are dark enough, stretchy enough and with a decent rise on them, so I don't spill out every time I bend over. I also love the pooling effect of the jeans and/or being able to cuff them--so cute with either flats or heels as well as boots. And just so people understand I'm short, in my 50s, and not a size 3. And I still look and feel fabulous in these--dare I say model fabulous even. I am now a hardcore fan of Madewell denim and probably won't bother with anything else from now on. These jeans are the holy grail of dark denim for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and feel! I am 5' 2", so I had to get these jeans hemmed. I did the hemming with the Madewell store and they came out great. The jeans are comfortable and fit very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect straight leg jean These jeans are absolutely perfect if you are looking for a clean lined, dark wash straight leg which looks hip, but not too skinny. I ordered online, received them today, and I think I will order a second pair. I agree with other reviewer said these fit very similar to how the J Crew Matchstick used to fit. I am a size 25 in these; bought 26 in some other Madewell jeans so these may run a bit larger. These look good with either flats or heels; casual or dressy. My new favorite jean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are my new favorite jeans! I'm rarely excited about how jeans fit and usually disappointed... But these fit really well, are super comfortable and with my curvy shape, it's a wonderful thing to find slim jeans that fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new GOTO Jean I was in LOVE with J Crew's Matchstick jeans until they switched their fabric and made them JEGGINS---UGH! I am a middle-aged pear shaped woman with a small waist so finding the right proportions in a jean is not easy:-( My search began for a new GOTO dark wash jean and after weeks of stressful try-ons and returns, I visited a Madewell store with my daughter and decided to try on the Alley Raw Wash jean and fell in love! The fabric is REAL denim with enough stretch to provide comfort without getting a saggy butt. I bought 2 pairs but will stock up on more ASAP!!!!
