I normally wear a 29T in J Crew pants. I decided with the toothpick style, I would try one size up since they're a snug fit. I should have gone at least 2 sizes up. These run SO small. So cute, but not even close to their normal sizing. Very disappointed and too expensive to try ordering another size.

I already had a pair of these jeans and loved them so much, I decided to get a second pair even though they were pricy. When this pair came they were totally a different kind of material and probably two sizes smaller! They were the same material and the same jean I had bought at the outlet for 1/4 of the price! Very disappointing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Urbananna Sexy Old School Skinny Jean
I bought these jeans in a size 30 Tall. I am almost always a 28, so I went two sizes up based on other reviews. That was the right decision. I am 5' 9", 138 lbs. with a 31" waist, 33" low waist (3 fingers below the belly button) and 39" around widest part of my hips & butt. I have worn them for two days and while they stretched a little to be more comfortable, it wasn't too much. I love the top part of these jeans--they are like sexy, old school, broken-in jeans--just a tiny bit slouchy. The fading on the back of the jeans is not as dramatic as the picture on-line which I think is a good thing. The front looks much like it does on the model. There is shading on the inner thighs but it is more subtle, the way it happens naturally with an old pair of jeans. I like the skinny leg but I also think these would be amazing with a straight leg. I wear them tucked into boots.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robbie12312 Love the toothpick denim pant
I bought the toothpick jean in white denim, size 29T. I am 5'9" and 142 lbs. It fit perfectly! Loved it so much I decided to purchase the Selvedge toothpick jean in cherish wash. Same size, 29T. When I received them, I tried putting them on and I couldn't even get them up over my hips. Way too small! I don't even know where to begin to guess what size would fit me in that pant. Maybe a 31T or 32T? Don't want to take the time and money to figure that out. It's too bad because I LOVED the way they looked.

I apologize to my Consignment shop. But the larger size fit me (although my own size had to be returned!) So I'll be keeping it. (However, the many posters who have recommended buying a size or two larger are to be taken seriously (at all costs!!))
The Cherish wash is natural, yet antique-looking. The ability not to fray is a characteristic of the old-style shuttle loom used to produce authentic selvedge jeans. When jeans became mass-produced, the selvedge technique gave over to the projectile loom. But these jeans are a product of the traditional Japanese shuttle loom. JCrew is quality-conscious so I trust these are a traditionally-loomed product to their very core!
To produce these Selvedge denims in a toothpick, there has to be a little tightness. If you allow time for them to conform to your form you should feel the unmistakable pride of carriage deriving from the quality of your Selvedge jeans!
