Rated 4 out of 5Â by ElephantGirl Too cute to pass up
Pros: Jeans are well-made and look just as pictured. The patching, distressing, and hem are so beautiful.. not to mention the awesome wide flare at the bottom. The style is SO unique, unlike anything I've ever seen! I found them to be very flattering throughout the thighs. They fit true to size (for the most part) and the denim is thin and comfortable.
Cons: As the other reviewer mentioned, there are some issues with the fit of the jeans. Like her, I experienced that annoying gap in the back and tightness in the butt. Also, there is a little more fabric in the hip and crotch than I would prefer (if you zoom in on the third pic, you'll see it on the model) due to the higher-rise and awkward waist. And for the big CON, at 5'8" with 4" wedges, these jeans are still dragging! :( I will have to have the length of the entire bottom detail hemmed. The problem with doing this is you risk losing one of the best parts of the jeans (or paying a lot of $$ at the tailor). It's such a shame that these had to be so long, but at the same time, they are too unique to return. I am going to head to the tailor to see what she can do with them to hopefully make them work for me.
If they are your style, I recommend trying them on in-store. As much trouble as it may be, I don't think you'll ever see another pair of jeans like these again!

I am 5' 5" 135# and bought a size 28. I wish I had gotten the 27 for a perfect fit but since its my first Free People purchase, I cant complain. They are SO LONG, I had to cut the whole bottom hem off, wear boots with heels and they were still dragging the ground... but I knew that too so again no complaint really ;) Lastly, as mentioned, these are high waisted which takes some getting used to! But... nothing I couldnt deal with. Overall, I LOVE these jeans and got tons of compliments. Ill definately be back for more Free People!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by joeyivy66 size down big time if your petite or slender
Great but I could have used a much smaller size as I am all legs and a small butte....bought size 28 but could have used a 26 or smaller and my normal size in other jeans is a 29
Rated 5 out of 5Â by EraEra I love these jeans!
I'm not sure why so many people don't like these jeans. I'm 5'9 size 26-27 and I think they fit great. Free People, please don't start making jeans shorter. I like a 35" inseam myself so I do have to pull these down a hair to get that length but other than that they're perfect.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by deerheart great if you can make them work for you:)
Fabulous looking flares!!! Really really wanted to love these-...my regular size, 25 fit tight on the thighs big in the waist and did not flatter me butt while 26 looked better but landed low on the hip and had a funky fit in the crotch area. hiking the 26 up did not help either, they are very high wasted and this was clearly grandpa fit. The FP crew said these jeans fit totally awkward on most people that tried them on, but i agree with other reviewers, if you want them, you gotta work on the look. Its probably better to stay with your regular size and wear them until the fabric around the thighs stretch out. Did not think they were too long, though I'm petite at 5"4' and the 26", even riding low on the hip barely brushed the carpet with 2,5" platforms
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MothFood Deal with it
I love these jeans, the fit requires getting use to. I was uncomfortable in my regular size 25, as the thigh is snug, so I ordered up & had a 26 shipped~ the problem is if you up size the waist is way to big so the jeans slide down & you get a long bunchy crotch area which is not at all comfortable. Get your regular size, deal with the tight thigh, it's meant to be tight to balance the extreme flare bottoms & they do stretch out as you wear them & break them in. They are insanely long, even with Campbell extreme platforms, unless you're pushing 6 foot plan to cut off bottom or take to seamstress to alter & re-attatch the hem. Finally they are high waist. So if you can deal with a tighter thigh, high waist & the extra expense of having the hem altered these are FANTASTIC statement jeans.

compared to the original extreme flares, i find the waist to actually be looser. the crotch is very long, i think it's meant to fit higher waisted. besides the weird fit, i love the style of these jeans. i also like the color, patches and distress details. i'm 5'3" so these are super long on me. but the bottom cuffs come off quite easily, so you can get these hemmed and still keep the style.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jennasixx Sexy, cool, an totally me! LOVE!
Well the issue with the fit everyone is talking about.... I don't see it. It is a higher waist style( I know the model has them lower) if you pull them up they look amazing. I have thiner thighs maybe I got lucky there. I am 5ft6 so yes they are long. I weigh 128 and I bought my regular size a 27. They make my butt look freakin awesome and they are snug enough in the thighs which I love. It's hard for me to find jeans tight enough in that area. Anyway they look hot and I can't believe I finally got them! Now I'm off to shop for some platform sandals do I don't drag these all over the place lol. Truly they are wicked cool in so many ways!
