Rated 4 out of 5 by MagicCity Love the Jeans and Cut, not the Whiskering
I haven't had much luck with J Crew jeans in years past - the waist band always gaps - but these fit like a glove. I love the stretch, I love the heavier weight, and I love the soft texture (without being anything like terrible pajama-jeans). I also really like the color, but I hated the whiskering in this wash. It goes too low onto the top of your thighs and isn't very flattering. The whiskering visually cuts your leg short, which it too bad because the rest of the fading around the rear and the thigh was perfect. I even went to the store to try on multiple pairs searching for one that wasn't too bad, but with no success. I did end up snapping these up in the darker rinse and the corduroy option, because the fit is amazing - but I just wish whoever designed this whiskering will please read this review and adjust future options.

The denim feels great, the color is great but the fit is super tight. I'm 5"10" at 148lbs always a 28 in jeans at J Crew...I couldn't get these up past my calves as the fabric was so slim. Size up if you're looking at these ladies!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SL3384 Great Quality But Too Skinny
This is a great quality pair of jeans, not to mention, the color was what I wanted and look for when buying jeans. The only reason I knocked off one star from this is due to the diameter of the thighs--so tight! I believe this is not skinny jeans but it is skinnier than skinny jeans. Imagine, I am petite and 4'11" 95 lbs… and I ordered Petite 24---The other REID CONE jeans I ordered was nothing like it, size was perfect, top to bottom. So, bottom line is, I would only recommend this to someone with REALLY skinny legs.

I love j.crew's straight leg jeans. The new long Reid style is definitely tighter than my go-to Matchsticks (ordered my usual size), and I'm not yet sure how I feel about that. They still fit, but are juuuust a little too pinchy. Great material, nice weight, and well made, per usual. I might have kept them despite the tighter fit, but seriously did not like the whiskering on this pair. As another reviewer mentioned, the actual color of the denim is not quite as pictured online--it's much lighter and the distressing much more apparent/fake looking. They just weren't flattering, unfortunately. I'm trying the classic rinse wash next to see if that's the ticket.

This is my first pair of jeans from Jcrew. None of the other styles fit my body shape nicely. REID style fits me like a glove, I am 5.9 and 126lbs size 26 is perfect. They are very stretchy and the lenght is just perfect , to show of my new JCREW pumps. They are very well made and the denim fabric shade is beautiful. Thank you .
