I agree with some other reviews here. They lose their shape within an hour or two of wearing them. Especially in the front zip/ crotch region. It looks awkwardly baggy in that area. When these first arrived I was so pumped because they look SO CUTE when they are fresh. This was my first CJLA denim purchase so I'm still figuring out what is best for me.
I'm so sorry that the Clarke's weren't what you had hoped for, Heather! That's not the quality we hope for our denim to have with more wear of them. I'm so so sorry! We have some amazing denim coming soon and featured on the site now!! :) Please always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Instagram for any sizing help or suggestions.
I bought these jeans a couple months ago when they first came out and got a size 7 and was pretty disappointed. I was really looking for jeans like the Josies and these just didnt fit like I wanted them too, they were gappy on my waist but snug on my thighs. Soooo I decided to give them another try and size down to a 5 (a size lower then what I wear in Josies) and they FIT SO WELL!! I literally almost cried tears of joy. They're snug in all the right places and fit my waist great. Ive already gotten so many compliments on them For reference: Im 5’2 and about 150ibs
So glad to hear that the Clarkes are exactly how you wanted them to fit now! :) They're such an amazing pair of jeans especially since they are a harder denim.
I love these jeans but unfortunately, they badly loose their shape after about an hour. The first hour wearing them I feel like a million bucks, like I have found “the ones” as far as jeans are concerned. They fit in all the right places, length is just right, and the wash on them is absolute perfection! The second time that I wore them to work I actually brought a backup pair of jeans in case they began to make me feel self conscious and frumpy later in the day. I ordered a size 0 (I’m a 25/26 in jeans) so unfortunately I can’t size down.
I'm so sorry that the Clarkes lost their shape, I'm sure that was disappointing! The Clarkes will have their shape come back after you wash and dry them, so I definitely recommend doing so! :)
These jeans fit great everywhere except my stomach. I am regularly a size 8 and went with a 7 in these based on reviews. I’m 5’6 and 155lbs. The waist is just small compared to the rest of the fit and not stretchy. I seem to be bad at finding the right pair of cjla jeans as the waist always seems to be too small. I will keep trying though! Just wouldn’t recommend these for anyone with some extra weight in their tummy.
I was so nervous to buy these jeans! I’m a avid Madewell jeans girl, but I’m 1 month post partum. Not sure what size I am! I was a size 28 in MW prior to pregnancy, and I gained a lot during pregnancy. I would estimate I’m a 29 or 30 in MW right now. Also- I have thick calves and a lot of jeans don’t fit my legs! So I opted for a size 13 in these jeans and they fit!! The waist is snug, but they button!! But by golly I have jeans that fit and they are so cute! Love the very high rise and the sturdiness of these (with a bit of stretch)! They hit just above my navel. So glad I took a chance!
Oh my goodness, congratulations on your newest edition Kim! We're so glad you're so excited about the Clarkes and having jeans! :) Your measurements are so helpful for other gals to know what they may like best.
