Rated 4 out of 5 by Ilex Skinny *jeans* - not jeggings
So happy to find some skinny jeans that feel like jeans, not jeggings. Tried the Matchstick in every other fabric/wash and was disappointed by the thin, stretchy fabric. But these are great - they feel like a worn-in pair of jeans, soft and a little stretchy, but the fabric still has some weight to it. Fit a little tight in the thigh and loose in the waist for me, but I always have that problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mayapple Great Quality, Unique Jeans
After reading the other reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect from these jeans. However...I LOVE THEM. They are heavier weight than most of my other jeans and as noted by others, feel like true jean material. They fit me well, 5'4, 103 lbs., size 24. At first they felt a tad tight (thighs, as noted by others) and loose (waist, as noted by others) but magically during the day, they seemed to mold to my body and fit perfectly, retaining their shape and comfort. The wash is fun and different. The length is great. These will be favorites for a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jrm73 Great denim.
These jeans are made of a great worn in feel denim, with a small amount of stretch and nice weight to them. A welcome change to the current trend to have jeans made of lightweight denim. The fit is pretty true to size, I am a 27 in other well known brands and bought these in a 27 too. They fit in all the right places, (I'm 5ft8" and 60kg) although I expected a narrower ankle opening for skinny jeans. They seem more like a straight leg jean than a true skinny jean. I also expected a darker, bluer wash going by the picture on the website. The actual jeans are lighter and more worn looking. I will be sending them back only because I was looking for a different colour indigo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Newfielover Gorgeous Jean, Weird Fit
The wash on these jeans is SO COOL. Unfortunately, the fit was off. I'm usually anywhere between 25-27 in J Crew jeans, depending on the style. I got these in a 26, and they barely fit over my thighs, but they were a little loose in the waist. It doesn't make sense because I have a pretty slender/athletic body type. Sizing down is definitely not an option, and if I size up, the waist will be huge. The length was great on my 5'9" frame - hit right at my ankle bones. If they were cheaper, I might have kept them and hoped they'd stretch out. But, I can't pay this price without perfection. Alas, back they go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alibee Color not at all as shown in pictures...
The color is not the bright blue in the photos - I think photos filtered? The actual color is both lighter and darker than shown. The sanding and fading do not blend well so the top half of the jeans are light but the bottom of the legs are very dark. Too bad because they are nice quality denim...
