DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN YOUR PERFECT FIT. ALL DAY.
These jeans are excellent! I was excited to get them as they had been recommended to me by my son. When they came I was excited to see the color and texture of the jeans. Not something you see on the rack that's for sure. I put them on and the legs and rear fit perfectly. When I pulled the high wasted pants up (I'm actually pretty short wasted) I was worried when the gap was too wide at my waist- I thought they weren't going to close. I started to take them off but decided to try closing them just to see... As soon as I pulled the button toward the hole the fabric stretched perfectly to fit my body. No pain in bending and perfectly comfortable.The fabric is stiff like old-school jeans but has the play of modern stretch denim. Classy and very well-made. I will definitely buy another pair at some point and am interested in looking into some of the other styles that are available. Oh, and I got one of the cool zip bags they make with the star on it. I'm not giving it away I'm keeping it! Kimalea A.
I was excited yet skeptical of this cute jean not only made in the USA but in Chicago?!? Could it be true?? I only buy premium denim and have quite a collection but have become disenchanted with the high price and more manufacturing going overseas with no decrease in price to consumer.... for less than $60 I figured it was worth a try and I couldn't be happier! The reviews were spot on .... high quality and great fit... thinner denim with just the right stretch and holds their shape after a full day and first wash so I expect they will wear well and be one of my favorites.... I am planning to buy some for all my family, great value! Staci C.
My cousins and I received gift cards here for Christmas last year. All of us being super tall (I'm the shortest and 5'11") these jeans were awesome because they tailored the fit to us. I haven't had much experience with this type of waist size so I am not sure the accuracy of that, but they fit me well. Melissa
I went back to Dearborn Denim after buying a couple of pairs of Madewell jeans and although these are a little stiff, they fit better and cost less. While not recommended in the care instructions, I do put them in the dryer to soften them up and tighten them up a bit. Gotta love local! Elizabeth S.
These are the first jeans I've gotten that fit me perfectly. It's always so hard for me to find jeans that aren't a mile long. Great quality and a great price. I plan on buying a pair in every color. Audrey H.
Ordered these jeans following your recommendation, and I'm glad I did. They are comfortable and fit me well. The length is flattering. The zipper is YKK, high quality and perfect for the jeans. Sara B.
I couldn't believe how comfortable these jeans are! I already bought my wife a pair of the high waisted (which she loves) and I will be recommending them to friends and family. Will C.
I hate pants, and jeans especially often make me feel self-conscious and straight up uncomfortable. I took a risk with these jeans, and they were well worth the investment. Hannah L.
I ordered a pair of these for my wife. She loves them. They were her size and fit her very nicely. These jeans are very flattering! I love them, she loves them: win win. Terry N.
These are great jeans. Fit perfectly after heming, and it was a simple, pleasant shopping experience. I'll definitely be back!!! Betsy J.
The jeans arrived very quickly & the fit is true to size. Definitely would order from them again. Love that they're made in USA Maureen M.
Super comfy and super flattering. I'm gonna live in these jeans! Ashley S.
I've been known to be a bit of a denim snob. But mostly because I'm a tough fit. When I saw the price I was apprehensive because I haven't found a pair of jeans that fit me right that didn't cost $200. But they're amazing. I love the way they look, they're super comfy, locally made, and totally affordable. The sizing can be a bit funny, so try on multiple pairs until you find the perfect fit. I like the inconsistency in the sizing, though, because there's always one that fits just right. These are my new staple and I wear ‘em every day! Jenn R.
These jeans are delightful. I purchased a pair of high rise blue jeans about a year and a half ago and they quickly became my go-to jeans. When my office dress code recently changed, I needed to make my jean game more robust. These lived up to my expectations and have already been worn multiple times. The cut if perfect for me and the fabric is robust while also forgiving enough to be comfortable. Jaime
I just bought a second pair of Dearborn jeans because I loved my first pair so much. Be prepared to try on multiple pairs of jeans, even of the same size, since each pair is slightly different. I really like the stretch of the fabric as well as the waist height, and I love that they are hemmed at exactly the length you specify. For $60 a pair for clothing made locally, it's a steal. Hannah T.
I love Dearborn Denim! The denim is tough and holds me in but provides enough stretch to be comfy. Plus, my long legs have limited my denim selection to a few brands that are unexciting. These jeans are the first that are so long I can cuff them! I am 5'10" and have very long legs, and ordered these in the longest inseam. Perfection! Thanks for the wide variety of sizing, DD! Kathleen Z.
These jeans look great and are very comfortable. I did have difficulty with my order: originally I was sent jeans that were labelled as ordered, but the waist was actually 3 Cheryl Z.
This is my third pair of Dearborn denim pants, and I love them. The fabric of the black denim isn't as stretchy as the regular denim, so the fit is a little more snug. I love that these pants don't necessarily look like denim, so they can pass as work/dress pants. Liz
Got these to replace a pair of favorite black jeans that i wore till they fell apart! These are not as stretchy as the old uniqlo ones i replaced but very nice, well made, and a great fit. And I feel better about supporting this awesome company. So stoked. Allyson t.
Everybody loves them! True to size and the custom hemming in store insures a perfect fit. Great customer service and reasonably priced. I think we found our new go to jeans! Doug M.
I tried one pair and they immediately fit, I love the jeans, they me look great and I love wearing them! And I'm very happy and relieved that these jeans are locally made. Irma
I have been on the hunt for a well-made pair of black jeans and these were the most ideal pair and for such a fair price. Beyond happy with them. Julyssa
I have a hard time finding jeans in the right size. These fit perfectly. I'm going to buy a couple more pair. Caroline S.
These jeans are great! I already own the dark rinse and black high rise skinnies, and these are a little stretchier and more lightweight (perfect for California weather). I also really love the color; the photos don't quite do it justice, but it's a great medium-light blue with a bit of brownish undertones. And best of all, they don't get baggy at the end of the day, so you don't have to get them skintight if you want a more relaxed look! Exchange process was super easy as well to get my perfect size :) Eleanor
I love these jeans! They have the perfect amount of stretch, and I love the design. They have a tiny bit of waist gaping for me, but otherwise they're a great waist height and I love the broad selection in lengths available. I also love that they're made in the Midwest. They hold up really well, I've worn them 3-4 times a week for over a year before they started to look worn out. Alyssa
These fit great. I tried the 30's and the overall fit was perfect but the waist was just barely too small. Going up to the 31's was perfect in the waist but gave more overall room--a little less snug than I normally wear. But still comfy and look great. I love having the length just right for me--no more puddles of fabric at the ankles. Tina A.
I'm 5'11" with 35" inseam and wear a size 6. I rarely find jeans that are the perfect length as well as perfect fit... Dearborn denim was the answer!!! Great fit, perfect length, great service and great price!! Definitely going to be a regular customer. I have already recommended to a number of friends both short and tall!! Ellen B.
DD has some great basic jeans, I have another pair and will buy again in the future. The fact that they are affordable and made in the US are major selling pionts. I think many clothing companies try to do too much with their lines, and being able to do some staple pieces is the way to go. Paula L.
These jeans are amazingly comfortable, stretchy and durable. Would recommend for femme and masculine folks alike, or for anyone who likes high-rise skinny jeans with actually decent-sized pockets. Love that they're local; walking in and getting a pair tailored was an absolute treat. Zak
I'm so pleased with my new jeans. I've worn them almost daily since I got them, and will be back for a second pair in black soon. They keep their shape nicely after several wears. Really great staff; nice people, helpful, and they hemmed my jeans in a flash. Lisa D.
They are fine for a light weight or summer weight jean. I wish that they made a style that was looser in the hips and thighs with a wider leg. More relaxed. Karen F.
I can't believe how comfortable these jeans are! They fit like fancy designer jeans for so much less! So happy with my purchases. Anna J.
My husband stumbled across this company and we both needed a pair of jeans, so we thought we'd try it out. They fit nice. Carrie W.
You know those jeans that you always wear as soon as they are clean? These are those. The custom sizing was great for a tall gal like me, and they make my legs look awesome. The cuff is great, too; finally, a cuff that just fits well instead of being Tara D.
I have been "threatening" to buy a pair of Dearborn for a while. I went crazy with two pairs of jeans. THEY ARE MY FAVORITE! They are comfy and well-made. I am not afraid to wear them in my special needs preschool rooms as I know they will wash well. Stephanie H.
Love the length. Had them hemmed longer so I could cuff. Fabric is a little thinner than I anticipated but this does not affect the aesthetic and makes them very comfortable . I am between waist 28 and 29 so chose the bigger size to wear with a belt Tracey P.
I love Dearborn Denim jeans!!! My jeans always fit great, the price is affordable, the quality of the fabric is fantastic and I love that you can have the length hemmed to your desired length while you wait. Angela H.
What a great jean, from a non jean fan, to wear all day long. Shopping was also great as the owner really makes sure you get the right pant for you. Nancy S.
Definitely one of my most favorite pairs of jeans. Comfortable, flattering and don't go all sorts of baggy like jeans with some stretch tend to do. Kara S.
These jeans fit great! They are comfortable and soft. I have them on at work today! Janine D.
This is my second pair of Dearborn Denims and I just love the fabric and fit. Tammi L.
I've been through dozens of jeans since the stretch denim fad hit, and they never seem to stay put for more than an hour or so. These were Perfect - and stayed that way through three wearings thus far. The waistband of a size 30 Lisamarie B.
Yes...I have a closet full of jeans. Dearborn jeans are my absolute favorites!!! I am now the proud owner of 3 pairs. The fit is fabulous! The fabric is perfect, not too tight, just the right amount of stretch. I am able to wear them several times before feeling a need to wash them...they don't bag and sag. I particularly like the dark wash. And, get this, they come with a raw hem. Dearborn will hem to your specifications!!!! My customer service at their location in Hyde Park was wonderful!!! (Shhh...don't tell them but the price point is a steal!) Eva D.
I tried these jeans because they are made in Chicago, but I adore them because they are high quality great fitting jeans. They were easy to order and were at my door amazingly fast. The fabric has just the perfect give to fit like a glove. The cut is very flattering and comfortable. They came through the wash fitting perfectly again. I did not have to contort myself to get into them. The jeans are just plain great but it gives me great satisfaction to know that my purchase does a little to support a domestic producer and its employees. Lisa B.
Finally a jeans shopping experience that makes you smile. Being petite, and not so young ?, it's almost impossible to find jeans that fit, and then, of course, the added cost for alterations. No more! Dearborn denim's jeans fit beautifully. They hug your behind without producing that ugly, unwanted gap in the rear. Length is no issue as alterations are free. Trust me, once you put the jeans on you won't want to take them off. Even after a few days of wearing they hold their shape and are soft to the touch. Liz
These jeans fit well and are super comfortable. The sizing was true, so no hassles there. I love the cut of the jeans---very flattering fit. I grew up wearing Barb W.
Really like the cut and they come and stay true to size. I washed mine 3x before this review. Not a fan of poly but it helps with stretch to maintain shape. They didn't stretch out or bag at knees at at all. I have recommended to my friends and sisters! I was also surprised the color didn't crock at all. Kathleen
Received these jeans a few weeks ago and have been really happy with them. They have a really nice fit and keep their shape well after several wears. I'm planning on buying another pair soon. Love that I can buy from a local company and get better quality. Angela M.
Great jeans, glad I bought them! Love that they are made in the USA, but more than that these jeans are turn quality and will last for years. The customer service is good and the jeans made it here in a few weeks. Thank you Dearborn! Elizabeth
There is no give in the waist line. I tried a bigger size but the waist band Size didn't seen to change it was too small. If the waist band had a little wiggle room the jeans would have been Desiree W.
I loved the fit and quality of the first pair I ordered of the straight leg dark wash, so I ordered the medium wash, and I am just as happy with those! Thanks for making these great jeans! Jane
These jeans fit well and are very comfortable! I love the fact that there are only 4 styles to choose from - makes shopping so much less stressful! Customer service was beyond excellent! Nicole C.
It is very hard for me to find jeans that fit me but Dearborn Denim Jeans are perfect!! Not only are they comfortable and - I think - flattering but they also look like real jeans! leigh d.
I love the idea of USA made jeans and supporting small businesses. But mail order jeans are always a role of the dice for me because I am very high waisted. Unfortunately, the jeans did not work for me, but the customer service was fantastic. I tried an exchange and the new jeans showed up just as I was mailing back the first 2 pairs. Then, when the second 2 pairs didn't work, the return was easy and the money was credited to my account just a couple of days later. I wish the jeans had worked because they are very well made. I highly recommend this company. Jacqueline M.
I bought as a present for my wife, they arrived timely. Unfortunately, it appears we mis calculated the inseam length. We are exchanging for 2 in shorter and look forward to reviewing that pair. Jeffrey O.
Somebody finally got around to using hefty "men's" denim for women's jeans: Hallelujah! These jeans are the missing link in my jean wardrobe. I have numerous pairs of skinny jeans in different washes and colors, including high waisted skinnies from Dearborn Denim, which I love. They are all great for spring, summer and fall, but not for Wisconsin Winter. These will fit the bill nicely. I am 5'9, 147 lbs. (but have long legs.) I wear size 8 -10, and bought 30/33 in the DD skinnies. I followed the advice of another reviewer and ordered 31/33 in this model and they are perfect. I do not agree that they make the wearer look grumpy, just a little less sleek than the skinny jeans. I'll take warmth and cosy cottony softness over sleek most days, so I bought two pair. Linda
Though I love my Dearborn Denim skinny jeans, I wanted jeans that were not skinny jeans, warmer, heftier, and free of synthetic blends in the fabric. I wanted jeans like the guys always seem to get: all cotton, durable, and affordable. And Dearborn made these, and they're perfect. They fit and look exactly as shown in the photo. I have a big butt (my charitable husband says Steph
These jeans are great. They're comfortable, I love where the waist hits, and the overall fit is very flattering. I normally buy a 30 waist in DD jeans, but because these jeans are 100% cotton (no spandex), I went up to a 31 waist and they fit perfectly. With their 13oz cotton fabric, I'm thinking these jeans will laugh at a Chicago winter. Alice T.
've been searching for the perfect 100% cotton jeans and these are so comfortable and fit so well. I plan to purchase another pair in the near future. Maria R.
Nice material, cute fit. I ordered the wrong size at first, it ran smaller than I thought. Not stretchy, but that's what I was looking for. Thea M.
These jeans fit perfectly, are very comfortable and look great! The weight is nice for Michigan winter. Definitely would recommend. Stacey
I have spent a LOT more money on jeans that I like a lot less. I'm a convert. Plus at 6 ft tall the custom inseam option is a dream come true for me. I bought these cut to wear with flats but I'm going to order the exact same cut longer for heels. I love them so much. They are comfy and fit me perfectly. Jenn W.
Love these jeans! Flattering cut, super comfortable, the dark wash looks great with so many different tops. I'm a loyal customer already! Anand L.
I wanted jeans like the guys always seem to get: all cotton, durable, and affordable, but in a lighter weight for warmer weather. These fit and look exactly as shown in the photo, if a little baggier; I think I could have sized down one size from my usual Dearborn skinny-jean size, but also wanted a slightly looser fit, so it's fine. I love the fabric and assembly quality - top notch. Nice to have jeans I could compost at the end of their long lives. Steph
I ordered these jeans a size up because they're 100% cotton and won't stretch. Well, the cut is very forgiving of my curvy thighs and the waist, while a bit loose, is narrow enough not to fall down to my butt crack! These are so comfortable as is, but I've gone ahead and ordered my true size for a more snug, work-in-able fit. Amy J.
So happy to finally have full weight denim for women! Waist runs small - really have to pull them up high to fit. Melanie C.

I ordered a size up and they fit like mom jeans, which is what I was aiming for. All other mom jeans I've tried were either too tight at the hips or too big at the waist, but this is perfect. Jenina P.
Finally a pair of jeans just like jeans used to be. Karen F.
