"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.

The very best jeans

I didn’t realise how fabulous it is to have great quality jeans. These are comfortable but seem to upgrade all my other clothes so that every outfit is a bit more stylish. They’re just fab. High-waisted so you can tuck in fitted tops but they also look lovely under big jumpers. Thick gorgeous dark denim but also soft and lovely to wear. I’m a size 12 and 5ft6 and got the 30” waist, 32 leg. They’re long but I like turnups and when I eventually have to wash them I guess they might shrink a little. I hope not though, they’re a great fit. Thanks

More comfortable then I expected

As someone who usually wears low-slung jeans I was a bit worried about buying a pair of high-waisted jeans which needed wearing in. However I'm so fed up of jeans wearing out in less than a year that I thought that I'd give these a try! I'm usually between a size 10-12, so ordered the 30W. They fit really well, and after a short period of stiffness are now really comfortable.

Jeans

Really loved these jeans on the website unfortunately the style just didn’t suit me so had to return them. The sizing was very snug and there’s no give at all in these jeans so I’d recommend sizing up.

Beautiful find

When I got the jeans in I was so excited to wear them! They are such a classic color and I actually really like the straight style! They are tight where they need to be and loose in other places for comfort!

In love : a review after ten months of wear

My favorite jeans so far. 10 months of nearly daily wear and 5 washes later, the fades just started really coming out.

I discovered them by searching for selvedge denim jeans for women (which is harder to find unfortunately), the fact that they are organic and Made in UK instantly convinced me.

I remember them being quite stiff at first, but they quickly become softer and more comfortable (I'd say it took maybe a week to break them in). I am 173cm tall, with wide hips and got the 28W 30L, which is the size I usually get most of my jeans in. If you are quite tall and want to cuff them twice, I'd recommend getting the 32L.

With time, as they keep molding to your wear and body, they become extremely flexible and comfortable. They fade to a very nice electric blue, pale blue in some places. The very high waisted fit makes them more prone to whiskers around the crotch and waist which I personally love and the straight leg makes for crazy beautiful honeycombs.

The one downside would be the way its dyes still rub off on everything clear, I can wear tucked in white shirts without any issue but anything clear rubbing against them will turn blue (it comes out in the wash however).

I definitely will get another pair of the Akins at some point, maybe in a longer length this time.

I would also love to see what would come out of a japanese selvedge slim fit if you ever decide to make one in the UK.
