Rated 2 out of 5 by DenimAficionado Disappointed in J.Crew's Cheap Jegging Denim
The matchstick jeans have been a staple of mine for years. Unfortunately, within the past two years, the quality of their denim has drastically decreased.
In the past, their denim was a higher percentage of cotton with a very small percentage of spandex. It was thicker and lasted a very long time. The last three pairs I have purchased were very thin with little structure. They feel very cheap and do not last very long at all, not even a year.
I recently returned a defective pair. They split inside the thighs after wearing them 5 times. The salespeople at my local store recommended that I try the new Cone denim. I purchased these and found that the denim is equally as thin and has far too much stretch for my taste.
I hope that the designers will go back to the previous denim. If I wanted cheap quality $5 jeggings I would go to Walmart. PLEASE bring these back in the other denim!

I have been buying the matchstick Jean for many years. I always loved the fit. It was very disappointing for me to find that they were no longer to be found in stores, but only online. The other disappointment was that the "short" sizing is no longer available. The regular length is way too long for my 5'4" height. Thankfully, I was able to get free tailoring with having a j crew credit card.

I'm a fit middle-aged woman, and the Matchstick is the best-looking jean I've found so far. (Those higher, smaller Reid pockets just don't work for me.) Cone denim is a much appreciated upgrade, too. The only thing better would be a selvedge option. Why do men get all raw-denim fun?

Rated 5 out of 5 by frauhein Feel like JEANS!!
These jeans have nice stretch and fit (true to size) but still feel like jeans and NOT leggings! I have been looking for jeans that are JEANS! These are great and are a really nice dark color also.

This is my third or fourth pair of matchstick jeans. The Cone Denim is a nice upgrade. I have found that for me they need to be shortened and they do wear out pretty quickly - especially in the knees. Otherwise, they fit well on a slightly curvy small/medium frame and are each pair I've ordered has fit well.
JCrew - please make in a short option.
