I have several pairs of these jeans. The quality is excellent - after many washes and wears they still hold their shape and look great.

Finally found jeans were made for my figure. These timeless straight legged jeans are perfection.

Since I received these in the mail I've worn them every day. They are the exact right length for me (5'-2" with the 30-inch inseam). The waist also fits at the right location, meaning no muffin top. They stretch a bit after wearing, but they don't look saggy. I wish there were more colors in my size. They also look good with running shoes, which is unusual with most jeans. A great deal on sale!

I have been wanting Madewell jeans for years. When they had the straight in my size on sale then with an additional discount, I just had to. I got a 28/34, I am very tall so the long length is a must for anything that is not legging fit. The length is great it even bunches over some converse at the bottom for a casual look. I really like where the waistband hits on my hips too. It is high enough to be presentable and to lock any holiday bloat in, but not so high I feel like I am in "mom-jeans". Waistband hits about 3.5" inches below my belly button (I am 5'10 with a long torso, so low rise tends to hit about 5" below).
The straight is a great choice for curvier people, they have a skinny look without making your legs look like pointed peg legs. As a marathon runner I also have larger calfs which these pants do not squeeze and bunch at.
Measurements: 5'10", waist 27.5, hips 40, top-thigh: 23" inseam 33"-34"

These jeans are just what I expected: long straight legs, uniform dark wash, slim fit through the trunk, a little stretchy. They're fairly lightweight and very comfortable. There isn't anything that I don't like about them. Service was great; my order came quickly and well packaged.

The fit is true to size. Love the nice dark color. But the best thing is that the denim is very soft, not stiff like some denim. They have alittle give, but do not get baggy. They make your backside look great. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Girlnorth All round great pair of jeans
These jeans are lighter weight so perfect for the hotter summer months. They fit TTS, and I find it really helpful that they come in different inseams so there is no need for hemming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ABinVA So far so good after one wash and a few wears
I followed the size guide's advice and tried a size up-- I got a 28/32, my waist is 27" and my hips are 37.5". They are snug when I put them on and basically perfect after I wear them for a few minutes. They gap a tiny bit at the waist, but not enough that it's a problem, as the rise is not too low. The Madewell wash is very dark-- can easily be dressed up or down. The "straight" fit is still quite slim but not skinny-- it should be flattering on most body types. I'll probably be getting another pair in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dottiepat My search for jeans is over
Since discovering the Rail Straight I can stop looking for those elusive perfect jeans! They're just the right amount of lean-ness - not skinny, not loose, choice of inseams for tall women. They look modern but not trendy, so they're keepers for years to come. Recently purchased a pair of black ones on backorder for a couple of months, worth the wait... Please never discontinue!
