Product Details
Limited edition and small batch, Rivet & Thread designs are future keepsakes crafted from top-of-the-line fabrics. Take these straight-cut jeans, for example: They're crafted from a unique Japanese selvedge denim with a bit of stretch for an extra-great fit. This pair was washed and hand-distressed, before having the hems let down by hand, giving them the feel of a vintage pair that had been tailored and loved by a previous owner.

Rivet & Thread Selvedge Straight Jeans

Rivet & Thread Selvedge Straight Jeans is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants! I have always loved Rivet & Thread denim. I have several pairs in various fits and washes and love them all. I ordered my std size in this style and was very pleased with the fit. I've got athletic legs so while on the model they appear a little loose they were perfect on me, just a bit more form fitting. I typically wear a 29 in denim (28 in BF styles) and was glad I got my usual size. the waist is higher so it was a tad loose but it isn't something a belt can't easily fix. The color is really nice and the weight and construction are wonderful...can't wait to get another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the distressed detailing. The distressed detailing in these jeans are what distinguishes them from another pair of straight leg jeans. There are worn-in details at the back pockets and cuffs as well as worn crease marks down the leg. I found them a bit long (tho I am only 5'2") but can achieve the cuffed length as seen in the photos. I got my usual non-stretch size 26.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dye was much lighter than pictured Runs one size large for me; glad I ordered a size smaller than my usual. Love everything about them except for the wash. I was so excited about these because I like my looser fitting denim to be either dark or light to better hide my short legs, and while these look dark online, they're definitely a "medium" wash in person. I kept them anyway because they're soooo comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit, super cute. Very comfortable and cute. I love the button fly and the seaming is a great detail.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't work for tall women Love the wash, the denim is super soft, but these jeans are way too short. I am 5'10". I ordered the jeans based on how they look in the picture but I wonder how short the model is, the cuffs ended just below my knees, making the jeans look like Mom capris. I unrolled the cuff and ended up with high waters. Also, nowhere in the description does it mention a button fly. There is nothing to love about these jeans, they are going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WAY too cropped, dye not as pictured Tall women, beware. I wish Madewell posted the inseam in the description; had that happened, I wouldn't have ordered them in the first place... Based on how these look on the model, it looks like the jeans may or may not be cropped.... the way she has them cuffed is where they hit on my ankle, uncuffed. The dye shown in the photos is far more rich and detailed than in the pair I received, too. Was really looking forward to getting these jeans (especially at the sale price), but they are going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as described I was SO excited about these jeans and have been eyeing them for a while. My husband got them for me as a gift. The main problem is that the jeans where cropped. No where in the description does it say they are cropped jeans. In fact, the description says they have a 29 inch inseam and mine measured 27 inches. I think if they had been the right length I would have liked them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Odd fit, can't recommend After a decade+ of wearing stretchy, poly-spandex-blend jeans, I felt like I was ready for a pair of sturdy cotton ones. But high-rise jeans really do look better in a shape-retaining stretchy fabric (love my Flea Market Flares for this reason). These jeans don't expand with you, they constrict and awkwardly ripple -- until the cotton fibers stretch out, at which point they just sag. These are 90s mom jeans. My conclusion: sturdy, non-stretch denim looks best when in cuts that are meant to be loose/slightly oversized and tomboyish, not cropped & body-skimming.
