The Slim Boyjean in Akiva Wash

The Slim Boyjean in Akiva Wash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfict Fit! I love these jeans! I have a bit of a boy body and these jeans fit me perfectly!!! My favourites so far. I think they are pretty true to size. I thought I would be a 29 but ended up exchanging for a 28. I usually wear a size 10, M-L in everything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jeans. Muffin Tops Minimised! These jeans are a must have for anyone who values the boyfriend jean look whilst still remaining feminine. The material is great quality, even though it has a 'worn' look, and the jeans can be worn with flats/sneakers/heels. One of the best things about these jeans is that the waist seems slightly wider than normal and I think that it why my muffin tops have virtually disappeared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from thumbs up! this is my first pair of madewell jeans. i was looking for a relaxed pair i could wear to work (without distress). these were my answer. i have long legs so i actually wear them unrolled and they are a cute cropped length on me. they are very flattering. i have a 6 month old so i needed a pair of jeans i felt cute in and these are it. super cute with flats or a wedge and i will be wearing them with booties this fall! score!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favorite jean I bought these on a whim when they were 40% off the sale price. I've never had good luck with jeans fitting me well so I was so surprised when these did. And they were flattering as well. So, so comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these! These jeans are awesome! Denim feels really sturdy and I love that the inseam is a little longer so you can cuff them and they won't be too short. I sized down and they fit like on the model, I think if you wanted them baggier to order your regular size. There is more paint-splatter detail in person than it looks like in the picture--this isn't a problem for me at all in fact I like them even better that way but if you're looking for something cleaner looking keep that in mind. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice comfy and casual I ordered these jeans a size down because I wanted the casual look without the slouchiness. I love them and I would definitely recommend sizing down. They are soft and comfortable. I love rolling them up a bit with some cute sandals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Faves I'm considering buying multiple pairs of these before they disappear, because I never want to take them off! Soft and comfy with minimal bagging between washes, these jeans have a very flattering rise that looks great with tucked-in tees and tanks. A bit long on my petite frame (5"3) but since I always cuff them I'm not bothering with a hem. Go one size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the price This is my second pair of Akiva jeans. I picked up my most recent pair during a 30% off sale, so I feel like I got a great deal. These jeans do run large, and with the boyjean cut, there's already more than enough wiggle room - I typically wear a 29 or 30, and I have these in sizes 29 and 28, and if they ever go on sale again, will likely try a 27. I wear them with heels, sandals, and sneakers (with the cuff rolled up) and always feel put together. The rise hits me at a really flattering spot, so shirts look good both tucked in and untucked. These have quickly become my favorite jeans. I only gave 4 stars for quality, because my first pair tore rather easily - I'd like to be able to get more than 6 months of wear out of a pair of $130 jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Them! Great jeans. Can wear 27 or 28. Got the 28 in these. Love the markings on these, really fun/edgy look, but not too much, imo. Soft denim.
