Rivet & Thread Extra-High Skinny Jeans in Gram Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Pair! Love these jeans! They are super comfy and look super stylish. They also don't get really baggy after multiply wears without washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The higher the denim, the closer to heaven? I love these high waisted jeans. I have a smaller waist but muscular legs and butt so the jeans fit perfectly in the thigh/butt but are pretty baggy around my middle -- but I tuck in shirts mostly and can get the waist altered if need be. I was looking for a fun dark blue wash high waisted jean and these are great. The blue color and fading makes them unique and I love the butt pockets. These jeans are HIGH -- so make sure you are committed to the high waist lifestyle before you order. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy, high quality jeans I am already pretty curvy, and these jeans highlight that in a really flattering way--they're high waisted but not at all mom jeans. I ordered two sizes and as some other reviewers noted, the coloring does vary, but that really doesn't bother me. Also, I find the dye in a lot of dark denim comes off on my skin even after multiple washes. These were fine from the first wear. They fit true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, super high jeans! The "extra-high" in the description is no joke. They come up an inch above my belly button. The stretch is very nice and doesn't relax too much throughout the day. The wash is interesting, not overdone, just a nice detail. I got them on sale for a bargain and these babies will be in my regular jean rotation. I would say they run slightly big. I vary between a 29 and 30 with Madewell jeans and i got these in 29 and they fit like they were made just for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Based on the other reviews I was a little hesitant on getting these jeans, so glad I took a chance. The rise is right at the natural waist, above the belly button. The worn out areas, the white fading has been tastefully done and looks amazing in the dark wash. The fading is noticeable but not glaring, it looks great. Love these jeans they feel like butter and look gorgeous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Pair of High Waist Pants These jeans are amazing! I was a little turned off by some of the reviews regarding the wash but my pair came in perfect condition. The fading is equal and appropriate on the front and the back. These jeans fit perfectly! The waist, the thigh, the calf, the length are all perfect! I bought these on sale but I'm looking forward to more colors and purchasing at full price. For reference I'm 5'6 and 130 lbs , the size 27 fit like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the fit is perfect!!!! Most high waisted jeans look really awkward, but this fit actually makes the butt look really good. I love how soft they are and yet how durable they feel. I only wish they came in more washes. I would love a grey or black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, true high waisted jeans True high rise jeans with a 11" rise. Stretchy, comfortable and flattering. Soft! I prefer more classic washes (dark blue with brown stitching and no fake fading), but these still get 5 stars for fit. Please make them in more colors!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit but too short I actually really liked the jeans. They were true to size and a soft denim but too short. Granted I am 5'10" so on someone more average height I'm sure they would be fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great High Rise! It's a true highrise jean with good length too (I'm 5'9). The fit is nice, the fabric has a lot of give (More so than the regular Madewell high-risers). I wish they were just a solid color, the fading isn't my favorite, but not too bad.
