"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.

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.

Fabulous quality

These are beautifully made 100% denim selvedge jeans. The wholesome scent of the fabric itself reminds me of what jeans used to be like. And right up to your waist and enough room for your hips.

I love them - but I can't sign up to this "don't wash them" stuff. Yuk!

Sailor Ahoy

I’m madly in love with these jeans...! I wear them with huge turn-ups at the hem.. The waist is the perfect height, I ordered the 28 ins for a size 8/10.. I’m wearing them with Breton’s at the moment and I’ll be wearing Aran’s and Fairisle with them come winter, for that Land Girl look... The only slight negative is the dye rubbing off on everything, but should be ok after a few washes🤞

Great jeans but come up small!

These are really nice jeans and are very comfortable once you’ve worn them in, which doesn’t take long at all!

I’m giving 4 stars because they do come up on the small side - I’m normally comfortably a size 10 and have jeans with waist 27” that fit well, yet I had to order the 30” in these. I couldn’t get the 28” all the way up! It might have something to do with the high waist.

I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of these.
