Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed cheap materials
J.Crew jeans used to be the best, but the materials have become MUCH cheaper over the years. These are much more like leggings than a real jean. I keep trying to like them but am disappointed every time I try them on.
Bring back real jeans!!
This sizing is also very off- tight, like a legging throughout the leg and then too loose at the waist.
poor quality all around.

I was a fan of the mid-rise denim, a huge fan. They were like getting back to adult jeans and getting away from the jeggings that have plagued the last ten years. The Lookout Jeans feel like a regression to me. Yes, they are comfortable, almost like a pair of sweatpants. It's not really what I am looking for. The higher rise is most welcome, but I miss the structure of last year's denim, I miss feeling like I am wearing real jeans. I'd love to see this new Lookout Jean come with less stretch and a more respectable denim.

Rated 3 out of 5 by whatthemom Basically Jeggings
I wanted to love these high rise jeans, but they did not work for me. There is a lot of stretch so the material is really more of a thin jegging not denim. The dark wash is very dark but it still did not hide my imperfections - it made them much worse. I am 5'8" 125# and normally wear 4 or 27 and both the 27 and 28 fit, very snug. My thighs looked like they had cellulite in the front and they creased right at the crotch across the leg/like at the underwear line and did not look good. I loved the new high rise.

I've never loved jeans at J.Crew before, but I am obsessed with these jeans. I've lived in Madewell's High Riser pants, but I lost some weight and they're too big-- now Madewell is only selling them in black or super light pairs. The higher rise flatters my (relatively) round behind and hips but also show off my small waist, all without making muscular thighs look like sausages. I've never written a product review before and I probably never will again, but these jeans are worth talking about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rooney Love these jeans!
I tried these jeans on in black at the JCrew Store and they fit perfectly so I bought the resin wash ones online. They have just enough stretch in them and they fit high on the waist so you don't constantly have to pull them up. Watching the sales so I can order another color. I really liked the midrise jeans but now these are my favorite.
