rail straight washes

I have been hunting for the perfect pair of black jeans, secretly stalking Levis in hopes that they will come out with a black wash in the Mid-Rise Straight. aside from my obsession with black denim, I had no idea that Madewell had so many great colors for their Rail Straight fit. I’d happily take dark holly, torch red, and gravel.
anyone tried these on? how do they fit? true to size? any info is appreciated!

    I tried them on this weekend. I find them unflattering if you have curves at all. I have no hips and a big bum and these jeans did terrible things to my silhouette. If you are really tall and slim I imagine they would look great.

    I’m not sure if I tried on this particular style, but I’ve tried on Madewell jeans a couple of times now and each time I’ve been disappointed. They just don’t fit me properly. But maybe it’s just me.

    I have a pair of these and they are pretty meh. I would say that they run pretty true to size (I ordered mine over the phone and got my normal size and they fit fine) but I don’t think I would order another pair.

    It’s a shame, because I like the colors a lot, but I have the same reaction to their clothes as I do to J. Crew’s – love the styling, underwhelmed by the actual pieces.

    I’m disappointed to see Dusty’s comments since I love these colors. Ah well, it’s the bane of being an hourglass.
