Rivet & Thread High-Rise Slim Boyjeans

Rivet & Thread High-Rise Slim Boyjeans is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are awesome. These jeans were a fast favorite for me. The denim is thick and high quality and doesn't show any of bulk when you tuck something in. The distressing around the ankles is definitely unique and looks great with sneakers, heels, loafers, mules, etc., depending on how you want to dress these. I'm 5'6" and these hit me right at the top of my ankle bone. The description for these jeans says to order in your usual size, but depending on how you want to wear them, I actually recommend sizing down if you want a more fitted jean. Like other reviewers, I found that they run slightly large. I ended up keeping the jeans even though they were a bit large, since I like the look, but they do wear a bit lower and looser than at my usual size. Either way, these are definitely a keeper and highly recommended. I've had a lot of compliments on them and would buy them again myself in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I have small waist with short legs and big calves and finally realized skinny jeans are not the biz for me. These are perfect! they are tight in the waist but my legs can breath and the back of my knees don't itch at the end of the day because they are so tight around there. They are high waisted but not too high waisted. Pockets are placed well. Sometimes they are funky with high wasted jeans. The best is the legs are slim but not too slim. I am usually a 26 with Madewell Jeans but a 25 with the Madewell Cruiser jeans. These I had to get a 24 since the waist/crotch bulged a little, The 24 fit like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans! Good fit and style is perfect for what i was after. So hard to find ripped jeans which are not ripped at knees. Quailty jean material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fall jeabs These are super chic for fall. I like to wear them with a top tucked in since they are high rise. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kurt Cobain wash Dang these are cute. They actually run large though and I recommend sizin down one. This is a really beautiful statement piece and will be versatile as well. I gravitated to them for their 90s look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish they fit... The denim is the non stretch thick rigid kind that I love. The wash is beautiful. If only they fit. I have other Rivet & Thread pairs in a similar wash that are my favorites. They are high waisted, but these come up so high that they look they are tighter through the hips and waist, although I ordered my usual R&T size. I think these might work on someone that is shaped straighter through the hips and possibly taller than me (5'4). They would be amazing on the right person.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Vintage Looking Jean Awesome vintage looking jeans. As they are 100% cotton and I have some hips, I was a little scared to go with my normal size as per the suggestion in the description. I ended up ordering my normal size and the size larger and yes, my normal size fit better and def eased out after a few wears. I just wish they were longer. They really hike up when you're sitting and I'm just 5"5' but def too cool to give back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dress up,dress down Love these jeans. They have that perfect worn in look and vintage vibe. I plan on dressing them up with velvet and heels and dressing down with a sweatshirt and vans. They run large though,normally wear a 29 and sizing down to a 27. Wish they were a little longer in the legs but will make it work!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from don't fit right It pains me to say these have to be returned. I really want to like them. I'm 5'6" and 120 lb. petite but I have hips and athletic butt. sized down for these. the hips fit, but waist is too big and way too high. The bottom of the legs are so cute. The quality of these are excellent and length is just right. But I have to say these make me look kind of big in the wrong places. Have to return them! ugh!
