Rated 1 out of 5 by Katie Not what I expected
I was so excited to see this style jean in a darker wash for Fall. I bought 3 pairs of the lighter washes this summer because they fit so well. When I slipped these new ones on they were much tighter in the thighs and MUCH tighter around the waist. I could barely move and I definitely couldn't sit in them all day. I compared the new pair to the old and the new pair leg opening was a bit wider than the old pair, and the hips were narrower than the old pair. The kick flare was more noticeable, and I didn't like that on my petite frame (5'1"). What I loved about the old washes of the jean style was the kick flare was almost a whisper. Enough to teeter into the trend, but not be too loud. These just barely moved to the too loud territory for me. I may have been able to handle it if the waist fit better, but two strikes and I had to return it. Too bad the design team didn't just stick to the previous cut from the summer washes. These might work for other people, but not for me I guess.

i never write reviews, but feel compelled to stick up for these amazing jeans. I'm usually between a 27 and 28 and ordered the 28 and they fit like a dream. the perfect rise, perfect medium-heavier weight denim and the perfect kick at the hem. they definitely have a vintage vibe which is exactly what I was looking for. also, they look great with flats, pumps, sandals and ankle booties-- you name it. they are the missing link in my jean wardrobe. thank you for making these j.crew!! my life is now complete. :)

I will second that I was so excited to see the Billie available in a darker wash for fall. In the spring/summer I purchased three pairs of Billies and thought I had found my go to denim. Thankfully I read the reviews before purchasing and went to try these on in the store before ordering. They are completely different in fit and style. Did not purchase. Disappointing in the changes and the lack of consistency.

I was waiting for these in a darker wash and I wore them yesterday for the first time. I'm 5' 102 lbs and I sized up to 26 Petite so I could have the shorter length look- they hit at the top of my ankle which is perfect. Love all the high waist jeans- they are very flattering. Wore these all day and they didn't stretch or bag at the knees. Might need to stash away a 2nd pair.

I just received these jeans, and I love them. Thanks to previous reviews I ordered in petite (I am 5'3") and up a size and they fit perfectly. The jeans are good quality, and extremely flattering. I will probably be ordering a second pair.
