I bought these jeans for my wife and she adores them. They fit wonderfully, especially after a hem. They’re slightly stiff to start, which is to be expected of raw denim. They look and feel as though they’ll mature with character, ruggedness, and grace. Absolutely thrilled and eager to see how they age.
I was nervous to order, but think they are turning out to be the best jeans I’ve had. Usually a 10, but pretty curvy, so I was nervous about sizing down. This was a good call. 30 was incredibly tight to start— a week in and they’ve stretched nicely and are softening. They now fit like a glove and are comfortable too. The high waist means they never ride down. Overall, they seem like they’ll be a closet staple for a long time and they look amazing. It is weird to have to hem them- I’m 5’9” and have never dealt with that before. I’ll get around to it eventually- they’re pretty cute cuffed.
Andrea stayed late to accommodate me and my husband when we drove down from Richmond and were running late. She was wonderful with her advice and soon had us fitted with their phenomenal jeans. I got the raw form of Haywood’s and thus went down a size since they stretch with time. Andrea also took the time to hem them for me before we left the shop. I just recently wore the Haywoods out to a brewery followed by a bike ride and they were more comfortable than anticipated since they are raw, after all. Best experience!
