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 Better than a Boyfriend Jean! I'm 5'8 140 lbs, and I like my jeans to be a little looser in style, so that I can wear them like they're my PJ's. I recently outgrew a pair of Madewell boyfriend jeans, and I was on the hunt to replace them. I couldn't decide between these cruisers or the skinny boyfriend jean. I am glad I tried both on in store--these cruisers are definitely the way to go if you're looking for a true, loose fitting jean. The boyfriend jean that Madewell is making now uses a very thin denim with too much stretch, is cut too skinny, and has a higher waist. These cruisers feel sturdy and breathable, and have the perfect mid-rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice fabric weight, doesn't seem to stretch out mid to heavy weight jeans, high (ish) rise, quality construction. these seem to maintain their shape and size better than most jeans. for my curvy body, these are a good fit. the rise also eliminates that horrible gap at the back,i.e., the seat seems to be cut properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering in every way I love these jeans. The wash has a perfect, vintage look and the button fly makes me feel cool in a masculine-chic kind of way. I'm 5'8, have a long torso, 27 in. waist and 32 in. hips with an average-sized bum. I ordered these in a 25 and 26 and kept the 25 b/c the larger size was a teeny-bit droopy in the crotch area and I wanted a more fitted look. I love that these jeans have very little stretch to them. I wore them for 5 hours last night and they still looked great at the end and I didn't get droopy-bum. Speaking of my bum--there's something in this denim and the size/positioning of the pockets that hugs, uplifts, and enhances everything to create an upside-down heart-shaped appearance, much to the appreciation of my boyfriend. I almost feel scandalous wearing these jeans without a long top to cover the goods. Lastly, I have athletic calves (14 in. circumference) and the straight-leg has a slimming effect on them which I appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Jeans I love these jeans so much! I have them in two colors and neither fail to be worn every week. They are a little big but not in a bad way they are very comfortable and great for long days at work or even going out. They don't stretch very much which to me is a good thing because they never get super loose that way you don't over wash them. Highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They run large, but are great jeans I'm a 25 or 26 in Madewell right now, and had to go down to a 24 for these jeans. They were quite baggy in the 25, and the 24 is skinny, but comfortable. I'm 5'2", and they are a great, full-length jean on me, no need to hem, super cute with a short cuff to show the selvedge. Awesome quality!

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 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!
