Chimala® Selvedge Straight-Leg Jeans

Chimala® Selvedge Straight-Leg Jeans is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted as usual As a Chimala denim collector (10 pairs) I was excited to see this wash. It was a little darker in person, but very beautiful still. I will tell you this year the straight leg is running larger and longer. A lot more room and the inseam is at least 1" longer than previous years. There are a lot of companies who are trying to imitate these and the ankle length version....however, these are the real deal! Nothing can or will compare, trust me I own a lot of designer jeans! Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Loved the fit, and the length, I'm 5'9". The quality is outstanding, the wash is done perfectly with wear spots well done. I just couldn't justify the cost so I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favorites I have to assume that I will be wearing these out, since I don't plan on taking them off. They are by far the best fitting jeans I have ever owned, and the most expensive. I debated for a long time about this purchase, and I don't regret it one bit. I will start saving for my next pair now. They fit true to size but are a bit long, although I prefer them that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing These are, without a doubt, my new favorite pair of jeans. The cut is perfect and extremely flattering, which should be the case if you are going to invest in great denim. I took my usual Madewell jean size (28), and I love the way they fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans, perfect fit! But expensive! I love my new jeans and I think I will wear them constantly. They are the selvedge straight legs. The fit is really great. I was tempted to get a 30 but then read a review that said they run a bit big, so I got the 29 and they are perfect. I guess they are so expensive because somebody actually fits them to real people and cares that they look flattering. Also, the service from Madewell was very good. Speedy delivery, and free delivery. Love that. Thanks! Lari

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me I was looking forward to trying these jeans because I like the straight leg style and also like high quality denim. While the fit was great and true to size, I did not like the thick and stiff denim. I prefer softer denim that feels more comfortable. I also did not like the wash because it looks like the denim is dirty. Maybe I am out of touch from what is currently stylish? Anyways, for a high price I want a pair of jeans that are perfect for me, and these are not so I will be returning them.
