Rated 5 out of 5 by 29thboulderps This is my next purchase!
It's hard to find a distressed jean that I think is worth the extra cash. Because distressing cost more time & effort, these worn-in jeans cost more than a simple dark wash. I usually buy a simple dark wash, save the extra $ and make my own imprint on my denim. This time, I will throw down more money because these jeans are perfection!
The hand of the denim is soft and comfortable & they're made with a great medium weight denim- not too thin. The distressing is not overdone either- I always fear how jeans with holes will turn into Swiss cheese after 3 washes, but I have zero apprehension with this jean. The shading on the leg is flattering, too. I have larger thighs and tend to shy away from lighter, tighter jeans... However, these just work!
They run big- I am almost always a 29 in every jean I try on, but I can wear the 28 in these (and wear it well!) If you like a slouchier look to your skinny, you can wear your regular size. I will be buying the size down because I have plenty of slouchy jeans and cannot pass up a pair that look so hot in a size 28!
I've seen these jeans on many body types, and they work on most. I recommend these for petites and talls alike- I'm 5'7" with a long torso and a 31" inseam. If you have a shorter inseam, they are full length or ankle length. If you have a longer inseam, they will read more cropped. Either way, they're awesome!
I know I'll wear these jeans a ton, and that's the deciding factor for me to purchase. I can justify the price when I know they will be worn to death!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ellenphant Perfection in denim form!
These are just perfect. Yes, they are spendy, but they are seriously some of the softest most comfortable jeans I've ever tried, and I've gone through a slew of "premium denim." I'm usually a 27 in AGs, JBrands, but the 26 fit like a glove in these. 27 probably would have worked as well, but I wanted a fitted jean. The rise is perfect - not high, but not low. You can bend over without showing anything. The wash is accurate to the picture. They are skinny without being hard to get in and out of - Mother really knocked it out of the park with this one. I am 5'4'' and they are between ankle and full-length on me, no alterations or cuffing required. LOVE!

My first pair of Mother Jeans, and they lived up to all the positive reviews. They fit perfectly as ankle jeans. I'm 5'3, 113 pounds, and the size 27 worked great. I rarely can find ankle zips because they are too long for a shortie like me. The light distressing added a fun touch. These jeans will get used a lotl.
