I'm so in love with the jeans!! I've been looking for a quality, true high waisted jean with pockets for quite some time... And I've finally found them! I'm 5'3", with an athletic build and these jeans make all of my curves look so lovely. They are a tad long, but can be remedies with a fold. Extra deep pockets to keep my phone, lipstick, hands or other necessities in and the buttons are sturdy. The only quirk I have is that the black ones tend to pick up lint like crazy (nothing a roller can't fix), but it doesn't seem to happen to the navy blue ones. I also really like that they have a touch of classic western style to them and that the denim is comfy but doesn't stretch out or sag. I hope that Collectif keeps making these forever!
I am 170 cm (5 ft 6 inch) and bough these in size 18. They fit perfectly in hips and thighs, but are loose in the lower leg, and also a bit short - they don`t even reach my ankle. Also the waist is not quite as high as I expected, they are much more of a mid-rise than of a high-rise. It would be prefect if you could have those in medium and long versions.
I bought this based on the recommendation in the previous reviewer's blog. I love the look of other vintage style high waist denim brands, but I'm only 5'2", and high waists often come up to my armpits. These are high enough to look vintage and to wear with shorter vintage tops, but hit at a much more flattering and comfortable spot on the waist. Bought them in navy and love them so much I'm ordering the black too.
I love the western style details on these jeans and they're an ideal waist length if you're shorter, as they don't hit too high. My only gripe with these is that I'm definitely between sizes - one size is far too small, the other had a big gap at the back. If you get them to fit you though, they'll be super cute! Beware, I had to order a size up from my usual Collectif bottoms in these as the smaller size would barely do up. More photos of these jeans here
