Rivet & Thread Rigid Skinny Jeans

Rivet & Thread Rigid Skinny Jeans is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and cool I have to adjust a little bit to believe I'm cool enough to pull these off, but I LOVE them. I feel like someone's going to take my picture for US Weekly and "just like US" me when I'm wearing them. Flattering, but in that we're-bringing-the-90s back way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite jeans! Fit is true to other madewell jeans. They are tight at first but stretch a little after a few wears. Love the cut, very slimming. Perfect to wear with booties. I wish they came in black denim too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality the quality of the jean is excellent but the fit is a bit awkward- it's too wide around the ankle to be a skinny jean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SO sad. I want these jeans SO bad, but they are SO tight in the correct size (around the thighs) ordering up and I get a gap midwaist. Ordered a size 28 and then up to a 29 returned both. Usually a size 27-28 in Madewell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kind of snug but kind of awesome Initially, I didn't love these jeans but they were final sale so I made them work, and now they're one of my favorite pairs. I love that they are a true high rise and have a vintage feel to them. They are definitely very tight at first, but after a few wears, your body just fits perfectly in them. I am 5 ft and about 100 lbs so I got the 23. My butt looks so great in these! I definitely recommend especially since they're on sale right now

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me... These are the worst Madewell jeans I have ever purchased. The fit is ridiculous. I ordered my skinny jeans size, which was the correct size, so that wasn't the issue. They are super high waisted, then baggy through the leg and although I have athletic calves, they were even loose there. The rear was shapeless and looked terrible. The fabric was way thinner and cheaper than all my other beautiful Rivet and Thread jeans. A total miss for me and returned immediately.
