"5 Star - These are the best selvedge jeans I have ever bought.The quality of the denim is high,they are comfortable and the buttons are easy to undo and do up. They do shrink in length after the first wash but that's okay as I ordered the long length of 32". The price is amazing as selvedge jeans do usually command a very high price and I thought £150 was not bad for what they are, I wish I could afford 2 pairs." - Julie K.

Yes but

The jeans are great - well made, sturdy, good design, nice fabric. BUT ... it doesn’t feel good enough that the fabric has not been pre-shrunk. It ends up being quite a stressful purchasing process. I now have Yarrel canvas in size 30, Yarrel cord in size 28 and these denim trousers (after a helpful but nonetheless annoying exchange) in size 32. They’ve been washed twice and are now a little on the tight side.

I’m pretty sure I’m a standard size 30. Come on Finisterre - up your game on consistent sizing - it can’t be that hard.

Best jeans ever!

Everything I would ever want from a pair of jeans, and everything they promised to be!

The denim is great quality, keeping a good shape and still being really comfortable. For me the fit is perfect, I don’t think they could have been better if they had been made to measure. I took a while to decide on the right size for me, and chose the size that was 1” bigger on waist and hips than my actual body measurements. I haven’t washed them yet and probably won’t for a while but they do have scope to shrink by the stated amount and still fit well. I love them!

Lovely quality - nearly perfect

These jeans are so well-made and such lovely quality. They are VERY stiff which you expect with a selvedge Jean, but after a wash they have started to soften up beautifully. Warning - they are cut for people with narrow waists and curvy hips and bottoms. This makes me happy but it might not suit everyone. If in doubt I’d say size up. The denim is not forgiving - no stretch at all. They are also VERY high waisted. I love how they look but it’s a weird adjustment after living in hipsters for years. Also, I ordered the longer leg length against the fit advice and am really glad I did because they barely reach my shoes. I can roll them up for summer but will need to wear boots in winter. Maybe because my large bottom takes up some of the length.

Great old school jeans

Beautiful and flattering old school jeans which (if like me you have a slight pear shape) fit like a glove and accentuate the waist. As i'm only average height i prefer them without a cuff which (if you're shorter in the leg) can shorten the leg. These jeans are beautiful in their simplicity, well cut and well made. Big thumbs up.
