Product Details
A true cool-girl fit, these straight-leg jeans have the look of a just-right vintage find (i.e., they look particularly great from behind). This pair was crafted in best-of-the-best selvedge denim woven in Japan on old-school shuttle looms—the finished edge really pops when you cuff them.

Cruiser Straight Jeans: Selvedge Edition

Cruiser Straight Jeans: Selvedge Edition is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jeans I ❤️ these jeans! The fabric is so good, it's soft, not thick (great for summer). The button fly was a pleasant surprise! If you want them skinny-tight you may have to size down. I'm 5'4", 32-25.5-36. I wear jeans in sizes 25-26. First I ordered them in 26 - they were too big. I reordered them in 25. At first they were tight, but then they stretched out a little bit and now they sit on me like on the model. What about length - they come slightly above the ankles when cuffed. Overall perfect jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best denim! Just received my Cruiser selvedge denim jeans and I love them! I'm a size 8, sometimes a size 6. In Madewell jeans I normally wear a size 29 only I decided to order these in a size 28 as the black Cruiser jeans I bought last winter are really loose on me. Sizing down was the right decision for me. The nice surprise is the jeans have a button fly which I love. The fabric is beyond description with high quality denim from Japanese mill; another Madewell winner that sets them apart from other retailers! They are classic straight leg jeans. I've been dreaming about ordering these jeans for months and I have found they are worth the price. If you are on the fence I'd say go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT pair of Jeans!!! Madewell has done it again - these jeans are the best!! They are comfortable, well made & fit true to size (5'4" 108 lbs - size 25) The denim is a lighter weight (great for warmer weather), but still of excellent quality. They hit at my ankle, so the length is perfect too. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect classic jeans I am in love with these jeans! I was looking for a pair of classic high waist denims with a vintage feel, very little stretch and these did not disappoint. I am 5'4, 115lbs and usually wear a size 25 in jeans but ordered a size 24 and they fit unbelieveably well. Very flattering all the way around and well worth every penny. If you love a vintage style then dont hesitate to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans I'm 5'7 about 120 and purchased a size 27. They fit great and I love them. They're my favorite cruisers because they don't have a ton of stretch, which I prefer. I would definitely recommend these jeans. They are a classic fit straight jean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please stop whiskering They were ok. Although I could see the whiskering in the photos online before I ordered them, it appeared more dramatic when I had them in person. I had to return. I would love it if madewell made some vintage straight jeans in a medium wash without whiskering or distressing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be perfect except... I wish these weren't high waisted. I didn't read the complete description before I ordered so I didn't realize the rise was so high. I'm sure these would look great on someone else, but I'm 5'2" and have a short torso and not only do high waisted jeans look weird they are so uncomfortable on me. The quality is amazing and I love that they are just a little loose. The denim also doesn't have a lot of stretch (which I like) and the wash is great! But Madewell, please please please stop making everything with a rise over 9". They don't work on everyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They made me lool bow-legged. They are shaded/faded and constructed in such a way that they made me look bow-legged. It was the strangest thing. They went back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love these, but fit wasn't great I wanted to love these jeans - as I've been looking for selvage pair. I've worn Madewell jeans for a long time in a number of different cuts and their fit is usually very consistent for me. These were big in the waist. They also fit strangely in the hook of the rise (just below the zipper). So the over all look was not cool or flattering on me. I loved the denim and the idea of the fit... so if they work on your body I think they'd be a great jean.
