Everlane Slim Fit Jeans Review
Everlane’s slim fit jeans come in at $68, an affordable price point compared to many other brands, let alone premium ones.
Of course I opted for the dark indigo wash for maximum versatility. The jeans are also available in straight or skinny fit. Keep in mind that indigo is sure to bleed if I were to put them through a wash cycle.
Everlane Slim Jean: How Does It Feel & Fit?
The Everlane slim fit jeans look and feel nice. The quality feels the same as jeans I own that are more than double the price. There’s a thickness to them that leads me to believe that they’re tough and durable jeans. At a glance, the look and feel of the jeans are similar to a pair of my GAP, Levi’s or Ash & Erie.
They are a modern slim fit, and so they are fitted through the hip and thigh with a slight taper down towards the ankle and a higher than normal rise. The jeans sit comfortably above my waist. Personally it’s got the perfect rise, which is about an inch, inch and a half under my belly button.
The shortest inseam offered is 30, which is pretty standard in menswear. This means that I’ll have to get them hemmed a few inches for that crisp no-break look that I tend to go for. It fits pretty similar to Levi’s 511 and Mott & Bow’s jeans.
For reference I am 5’6″, 135 lbs give or take 😉
Quick note: If you’re enjoying this Everlane jeans review, then you’ll probably like this Mott & Bow jeans review of their medium blue wash denim.

Hi! Can you please share you height and weigh for reference? Also, is the jeans size you tried the same as a levis you normally were, in such way that it will be appropiate to order the same size as a levis i have?
Khoi Nguyen says
Hey Andres, thanks for the question. I’ve updated the article with my size and I’ll answer here too. I’m 5’6″ and around 135 lbs. Yes, you can order the same size as with Levi’s. The jeans in this review was 29, but I can also fit 28. Inseam of course is no less than 30 though, so keep that in mind, you might have to hem them if you’re shorter like me. Hope this helps! -K
