Great Style, Jury Still Out
A great looking shoe with overall suede, perforated leather and wooden elements that really make this stand out. I originally got a 10 and returned for a 9.5. Even with an insole I can stick my index finger behind both heels but feel a 9 would be too small in the forefoot. Without an insole the ball of the foot hurt after standing for 2 hours, but I can say with an insole, I can endure longer. If wearing skinnies, these fall just a hair above a 30-32" inseam (I'm 5'6") and the profile looks great with dresses too. We'll see how they do on the San Francisco hills I walk!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Nice
Great, true, cobalt color. Length is right. Incredibly soft material. One thing to note is how incredibly paper thin the material is--the hang tags read that this is due to the "delicate nature" of the imported corduroy (the jeans are made in the US!). Another note says it will stain other clothes, so be forewarned. Sale price made it attractive. I'm 5'6" and a street size, curvy 8 and got the 29.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Jury's still out...
PROS: - love the wash - length (it's an ankle jean, to be sure. I'm 5'6" and the jean hem is falling right where the model's is in the picture - soft fabric - looks great with flats and I rolled up the hem once to go with my Acne Pistol boots and that looked good - sale price makes it attractive CONS: - the "tuxedo" stripe isn't as noticeable, it's pretty subtle. So subtle in fact, that I may end up hand dye-ing it black, which is a bummer of a thing to do - the rise, though listed as 8.5", is really low in the front. Back rise is fine, but the front was the issue for me - I can see this stretching out quite a bit (it's 98.5% cotton and 1.5% spandex), which is a bummer. Contrary to the previous reviews, I'd actually recommend sizing down from your usual size. (I ordered the 30 based on reviews and wished I got the 29.) About me: Street size 8, curvy. 28/29 in Rag & Bone jeans; 28/29 in Earnest Sewn; 29 in Paige
Sizing: Larger than Expected
