Rated 4 out of 5 by LifelongJCrewShopper On the right track, but not perfect
I love the cut of these jeans. They are very flattering on my tall, hourglass figure. The waist goes just high enough that I have no muffin-top without looking like mom jeans -- they are the perfect rise for someone who has had children but still wants to look stylish. However, the quality of the denim is not great -- it is rough and scratchy, even after being washed, which is disappointing. Also, the seams of the jeans were not well sewn -- there were random strings that needed to be clipped off which really is unacceptable in a premium pair of jeans. Despite their flaws, I kept them because they are flattering and I needed a new pair of black jeans and didn't feel like shopping around for something better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MelbGirl Good fit, but fabric collects all the white fluff
Great fitting and feeling jeans .... but I have to go over them everytime with a lint remover - and after only an hour or so it looks covered in lint again

I bought these to replace an older pair of black skinnies, and these jeans did not disappoint. The leg is described as slim and straight - it's definitely skinny enough to fit into tall boots (skinnier than my Matchstick jeans), but looks good with heels or flats. There's enough stretch to make them very comfortable to wear all day. I'm 5'7'' or 5'8", 120 pounds on a skinny day, and took my go-to size 29. I look forward to wearing these all winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cardigangirl The Waist Fits!
For several years I have not been able to buy J. Crew jeans because the waists gap terribly on me. This style was a nice surprise. The waist isn't overly snug, but it's not gapping, either. I have only washed them once, so I don't know if the dye will fade over time, but so far so good. The denim is a nice weight, and the legs are perfect - not too skinny, not too loose. They look cute with a cardi and heels for work, which is what I bought them for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dustylove Best Jeans in Years!
Finally! Regular waist jeans, not hiphuggers --I love these jeans! I am 5'4, 115 lbs. -- these jeans have a real waist, without being clownishly high, and not tight (my waist is 30"). They are soooo comfortable, and look perfect after wearing all day (they are stretchy and not too thick). I had these shortened at the tailor about 3". Because they are black, I plan to turn them inside out and wash gently in hopes they stay a dark black. I will probably get another pair (I ordered 26, these are perfect) and will try next the bootcut jean. Thank you J. Crew!
