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 Waterfall

Alley Straight Jeans in Waterfall is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and fitting jeans Yes, they run a bit long, but as I am 5'2", most jeans run long on me. They are really well made, heavy denim. I wouldn't recommend these for spring/fall/summer, as you'll be sweating. These are definitely winter jeans, and will surely keep you super cozy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite madewell jeans This is my 4th pair of alley straight jeans, it is my favorite style in madewell jeans, I love the slightly straight legs, since I don't particularly like it too tight around my calves. They are straight but still slim fitting without being overly tight. The material is really soft and comfortable, they are my go-to jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same jean, different wash and fit I already had a pair of these alley straight jeans in a black wash that I bought in-store and love the fit. I ordered this wash when Madewell was having a sale. I bought the same size as the black pair - these fit differently and are a little bigger. I plan to keep them but wish the fit was the same as the black wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jeans Bought these on sale for a steal. Perfect for laid back fall days and sweatshirts and laying in the park and throwing a Frisbee around and taking a walk...I could go on. Perfect amount of stretch without looking like jeggings (ewww.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite style I recently bought a pair at the store so I was so happy to find a pair on sale on the website! These jeans are so comfy and fit perfectly. I am 5"5" and wear the regular length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, comfortable, flattering First pair of Madewell jeans, though I've been hearing all about them, including from my kids. Beautiful color, exactly as photographed on the website. While I have several pairs of skinny jeans, which I really like and wear often, I wanted to try a pair of Madewell jeans in this higher rise (but not too high of a rise). Fabric: substantial with some stretch (e.g. commuting to work on my bike), with just the right amount of stretch. Drapes nicely, flattering all around. I'm 5'7", 115 lbs, usually wear a 27" (size 4 or 6, depending on style/brand), I ordered the 27" and the fit is perfect. Other reviewers wrote that this Madewell style just fit from the moment she put them on, so ditto. I'll be purchasing other Madewell jeans in the future, and likely another pair of the Ally Straight Jeans. Oh, and excellent customer service, prompt communications and shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pants These jeans run long--I'm 5'4'' and am getting them hemmed. But they are absolutely wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wicked jeans From the moment I put these on, they just fit, you know? Like really fit. It was an ah-ha moment for me to be honest. Nothing ever just fits as soon as I put it on, especially not pants. They feel wonderful and they are oh so comfortable. I wear them all the time, however, if I had a teensy complaint about them, it would be this - they kind of flatten my bum and I'm not so keen on that look but it certainly hasn't stopped me from wearing them and it certainly hasn't stopped me from ordering more jeans from Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, comfortable jeans! Finally, jeans that don't gap out at my waist or show my bum when bending down to pick up my toddler and they are comfortable! Wow, Madewell is my go-to for jeans! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable casual jeans Love them. I usually wear the high risers, but decided to try these. 5'9" 115 lbs bought these in 25. The fit is great and they are incredibly comfortable.
