The 9 1/2" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet.

Slim Straight Jeans in William Wash

Slim Straight Jeans in William Wash is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from For one jeans fit like the image These jeans are seriously so gorgeous. I've been noticing a lacking in my wardrobe for so long, and I think I finally found what I'm looking for. These are seriously the best straight leg jeans ever (that actually fit straight!!). It's a beautiful dark wash with slight whisker details, which I am a huge sucker for, and the high waist will seriously suck you right in. I've always had slight gripes with how "straight" jeans would slightly cling to my thigh area and give an awkward presentation around that area, but these actually go straight down. I don't agree with reviewers who say these stretch throughout the day, they are stretchy, but I've worn them for two days in a row and they haven't stretched or sagged on me. I'm 5'3" and 105 pounds with slightly longer legs, and I had to cuff them by about an inch (may hem, although I don't want to risk messing with the fit), but they cuff so beautifully it wasn't even an issue. I purchased these in a size 24 and they fit TTS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these - bought two pair I bought two pair and they have been in extremely heavy rotation for the last few weeks. I love the waist-height, the length, the slim/straight leg. Please, PLEASE, offer them in a darker, more professional wash. I would definitely buy two more pair!!! 5'3", bought my normal size 26. I wear them either with loafers on weekdays or tight-rolled with casual sneakers on the weekends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I rarely review items of clothing - not much impresses me so much that I want to take the time. But These. Jeans. Are. Amazing. They really do flatten the tummy and the pockets are flattering. They are some kind of magical material that is soo comfortable but still has a bit of stucture (I don't like "jegging" styles that are super stretchy). I usually order up in Madewell high-waisted jeans, but I should have gone with my regular size in these. PLEASE MAKE MORE WASHES!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Washes, Please! The fit and the feel of these jeans are both stellar. Comfortable and cool— the silhouette is modern without feeling over-the-top trendy. Those front pockets are indeed magical. Other high-rise jeans leave a mark on my waist, but not these. I took my normal size 26.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye Skinny Jeans! My closet is only skinny jeans with the exception of one worn out pair of best girlfriend jeans from forever ago. I tried the perfect summer jeans but they just didn't work for me, so I continued to hunt for the perfect pair of looser fitting jeans. While these aren't really as vintage looking as the perfect summer jeans or 100% cotton, they are SO comfy and the denim is quality. They are looser in the bottom part of the leg which makes them look a little more boyfriend-style ish. I am 5'2", 106 lbs and got the 25. I definitely could've gotten the 24, but I wanted a looser style and the 25s are still perfect. If you're on the fence, go for it! The wash is beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fall staple! These jeans are beautiful! The wash is a classic medium-dark blue. Very minimal distressing that gives them a "lived in" feel. Very comfortable and stretchy (can't wait to wear these to school this fall)! I ordered one size down. My waist measurement is a 25 and I went with 24 and they fit perfect! Very slimming and fitted. If you're into the comfy, looser style or want them roomier in the legs / butt I would go with your usual size. Overall great jeans! Size purchased: 24 tall. My measurements (for reference): height - 5'7" waist - 25 weight -110

Rated 5 out of 5 by from goldilocks jeans These jeans are not too tight, not too loose, but just right. I have a mostly flat bum but these jeans give me shape! I love that the pant leg is slim and straight without sticking to me like skinny jeans. The denim is sturdy with good stretch so I know they will be comfortable for all day wear. For reference, I am 34-26-36 and got my usual Madewell jean size of 26.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and comfortable! I have ordered a lot of jeans trying to find some as much as I like my old Madewell Alley Straight jeans- and I think I found some! These are so flattering and comfortable. They have a hint of stretch but still seem like real jeans. Please make them in more washes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these jeans..only one thing I love these jeans. They are comfortable, stylish, high waisted and they fit great. The only reason I gave a 4 stars instead of 5 is because the jeans look different than the picture. First of all, they are stretchy which I didnt expect judging from the photos. The jeans the model is wearing look like Madewell's "Straight Leg Cruiser Jeans" with a bit slimmer fit. The actual jeans are more like skinny jeans. Also, they are not as cropped as they look on the model. Probably because she's close to 6 ft tall which most of us aren't. But besides the jeans not being what I expected, I really like them, probably more so because they are stretch jeans and therefore more comftorable.
