Cruiser Straight Jeans: Selvedge Edition

Cruiser Straight Jeans: Selvedge Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy I wear 26" in madewell skinny jeans and ended up with the 25" in this style. They look great rolled up like slim boyfriend jeans. I love these and plan to wear them as much as possible! For reference I am 5'3 110.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable fit New favorit jean. Nice to break away from the standard skinny jean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans I had to size up only one size from what I usually get in skinny jeans since there is no stretch but other than that they fit great. I could have sized up one more to get a more loose fit but I like them sitting snug on my hips. They are breaking in nicely and really do look great with everything, dressed up or down. I’m about 5’6” and the regular length fits me pretty similar to the model. Love these jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice straight-leg Nice straight-leg, thick material, good for wearing in winter. Went one size down from my normal 25, got 24, which fits pretty well. I'm 5'3, 108 lb, Asian girl with narrow hip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get in the smallest size you can. They stretch! I was under the assumption that selvedge = 100% cotton. These are only 98%. They will stretch so I kept the smallest size I could fit in. I am a relatively curvy person, so these do not fit me as they do the model. They are quite thin, also. Not good for a Chicago winter, but I look forward to resurrecting them in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in these These are my first pair of Madewell jeans and I love them. Great quality, perfectly worn through, ran a little large which is fine with me because then I can wear them all day without needing to tear them off when I get home. I love the selvedge detailing - my favourite piece I wear multiple times throughout the week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jean My favorite Madewell jeans - fit a little lose, and aren't super stretchy like the skinny jeans. Will wear them all Fall and Winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally found the perfect jeans for me! I can not believe I have finally found my "it" jean! It took me long enough! I love everything about this jean! The coloring is perfect, slightly lighter blue on top and the color gradually gets darker at the bottom. The fit is perfect for me! I am a curvy, muscular kind of girl. My legs are definitely NOT skinny pipe like and the legs fit me like a glove not in a suffocating kind of way. It has a boyfriend jean kind of look but with enough of the fitted look to make them sexy and so flattering. The material is not giving, which is the way I like it and it helps with the button fly that way everything gets "tightened," where it neeeds it. I am so happy with these jeans!!! Definitely will be doing the dance of joy in them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable everyday jeans I love these jeans. They are super comfortable and cute. If I could go back I would order one size smaller. They fit great the first day, but stretch out quite a bit. I still love them,but will be washing them more often than normal to bring them back down to size. The baggier look doesn't bother me a ton, I wanted a loose look, but in a perfect world they would fit a little more snug in the hips and thighs.

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 4 out of 5 by from Fits loose, runs big I like the style but the jeans run a little big. If I had to do over, I would have sized down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but not the quality I’d expect I bought these back in mid-February and was so excited to wear them! The overall fit is awesome! Super relaxed that you can wear with pretty much anything. However, about 2 months in I noticed holes forming by the front belt loops which is not something I’d expect from madewell since their jeans are usually very high quality. I probably wouldn’t recommend buying these unless you’re prepared for the holes to form.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was expecting more Based on the photo, and the "selvedge" aspect of this purchase I was expecting a higher quality of jean (perhaps a J.Crew Point Sur quality in my head?). These arrived in the mail today and I was very underwhelmed. The photos look more whispered and show a higher degree of dark/light blue fade, to which these are not. Also, the outside seam gradually twists toward the front of your leg, and that was just trying them on, I'd guess they would twist forward more with wear. It seems like every recent "blue jean" from Madewell are all the same material and color. Madewell, start sending the jeans from the photos with all the details shown and I'll start keeping them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good quality but sizing is confusing! It is in general a satisfying pair of jeans. However I have to return because of the confusing sizing system! I am wearing 24 for Madewell perfect summer jean, 25 for madewell skinny jeans. As a reference I ordered size 24 for this cruiser straight jeans but it turns out too large! This is very annoying. I am buying jeans from the same brand but the sizing could vary from 23 to 25. I usually shop at home and it's hard for me to pick the right size. Hope Madewell could improve this condition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I wanted to love these, but I just like them, which means they went back. At full price they have to be AMAZING. These do run one size big. These do not have as much fading/whiskering as shown in the photos. They almost are a little boring. I was hoping for a little more fading. They do have some wonky distress marks on one leg that looks obviously fake. The denim is a lightweight denim and I really liked that. I sent them back because I don't think they warrant the high price tag. At all.

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 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but too short! I love Madewell jeans and have several pairs. I was looking for the stiff cotton, vintagey jeans and was hoping these would fit the bill. They ended up being too tight since I ordered the same size I wear in the stretchy skinny jeans & should definitely have sized up. That said, they were way too short for me anyway. I’m 5’11” and even with these unrolled, they looked like capris. I wanted something a little baggier and something I could roll. No doubt they would be cute on someone with smaller frame though!

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.
