SORELL STRAIGHT LEG JEAN
I ordered the size 8 cherry jeans for my daughter, age 22. The colour is a lovely shade, & true to the photo. These jeans are youthful enough - my daughter finds them not too high and not too low on the hip. Also, we ordered regular length because short was not available, and the regular is fine with the rolled-up cuff. She's 5'4". She takes size 6 in North American sizes, but the British size 8 is a perfect fit. I will need to order a pair for myself!

Fantastic pair of jeans
Wow - I just love these. I now have hay, blue and cherry. The size is pretty true and they gave a little after a couple of wears, without losing their shape. Glad to see WS going for a higher waist than previously. A good call as their customer base seems to be mainly 35+ and less likely to favour the 'on the hip' look! Convinced my other half to get a pair in moss and she loves them.

I wasn't happy at first to try a size 16-am always a 14 in jeans-but these are great and am SO glad I tried them! The legs are straight but not too tight like other styles.

Tighter leg fit than last season
I bought a pair of Sorell straight leg jeans last season and loved them ... the perfect fit. Unfortunately WS have changed the fit this season - personally I would not describe the fit of these as "straight leg" any more, I found this season's Sorell jean to be very tight on the legs, more what I would expect from a skinny leg jean. Very disappointed as I thought I had found my perfect jean last season and they've changed the fit!

Nice jeans poor fit
These jeans are lovely but unfortunately did not fit. The steel colour was a lot more washed out than I thought. I am an hourglass size 14 on the bottom and the jeans were tight on my thighs. I am 5ft 8 and would recommend long to anyone taller than me. They are lovely jeans though and I would recommend them.

Great fit, problem with length
Love these jeans especially the Deep purple haze and the Copenhagen blue, cannot get either of these in a 10L. There are a limited amount of this length in many of the stores and the only option is to buy on line. Here's hoping.

I couldn't figure out why fit so poor to last season's pair then measured old pair with this one to find that faulty stitching. The front panel is size smaller stitched to a back panel that is for correct size. So the fit is In-between sizes. Second occasion this has happen. Need better quality assurance WS!

This is my first pair of Sorrell Jeans. Despite being a long time customer and these being around for a few years I'm just not all that into brightly coloured jeans and I did have the wrong body shape too. However, having lost a bit of weight I was amazed to get into a pair size 8s. I'd usually get a short leg but found the regular leg a more flattering fit. I got the Purple Haze shade and they're gorgeous and go with so many things. My final observation is the fit around the backside and the waist - I usually have difficulty with fit in this area as I'm a pear but these are a lovely flattering cut and they don't gape at the back. Really very impressed with these as my first pair. I might have my head turned to more colours....

I had to size up to a 14 but the fit is good so perhaps if you are ordering on line try more than one size. I have a small waist and large hips and bottom so find it difficult to find jeans/trousers that don't gape at the waist but these fit quite well (I will still need a belt). A lovely pair of trousers for autumn. Thank you White Stuff!

Why oh why can't WS get the sizing right on these jeans! After having a pair last year in yellow sponge colour that stretched to about two sizes too big I usually go for a size 10 in these jeans (I have alovely pair of Windsor Rose colour). Waited patiently for these to arrive in a 10 today and they'll have to go straight back, its not a case of size down for a snug fit these are tiny and the legs are far narrower than my last pair. Gutted as the colour and fabric is gorgeous - my advice, only size down if you are only just over the size you are buying...

Brilliant...must have..beautiful colour and quality
I was having second thoughts about getting a jeans online because of fittings etc, but glad I did, I am size 14 but decided to get the size 16R in the deep purple, and its very comfy fit, as I don't like tight fitting, due to flabs around tummy that have been well hidden away with these trousers and its my first attempt getting a straight cut jeans. They are definitely slimming and will go with most clothes. They are one of the best quality jeans and the colour so pleasing. Its darkish purple so not overpowering, but a pleasant colour for all year round, especially with Autumn & Winter, whereby we don't need to always wear dull colours or stick to black. Its a definite must have and the fitting is great, although I personally prefer it to be not too tight so the waist is a bit roomy but nothing a belt cannot fix. Wear it nice top or tunic with either boots or just flats both alike, looks good. Can't say enough, but this is my second trousers from White Stuff and I am very pleased. Thank for making a busy mum of three happy today :-)

One leg straight, one skinny
The left leg was straight and fitted well, the right leg was skin tight, huge disparity in size, where's the quality control? A shame as the waist actually fitted well (usually too tight) in usual size 8. Hips were fine too. I was surprised they were really thick denim after one reviewer said they were thin?? Maybe the denim varies in different colourways. I bought purple which were very dark and I think they will transfer dye too in this colour.
Lengthwise, slightly short in Regular as I'm 32" standard inside leg, would be ok with flats just about, Long leg length too long.
Anyway, they had to be returned as the right leg cut off circulation.
My purple jeans search continues.....

A stunning colour
I got these jeans in the purple colour which is a lovely dark purple.
The jeans do stretch a bit so if you are between sizes I recommenr sizing down.
I do think they are slightly over priced but the fabric and the colour are excellent.

These jeans are very smart. I got the purple and they look stunning on. I got the 12 as with the stretch I could get into them. I am between a 12 and a 14. I never used to wear coloured jeans but I tried the Southern Ocean crops in the summer in the purple and the beige and I'm converted! The purple colour of the Sorell jeans is amazing and the fit down the leg is great. I just love them! Will get loads of wear during the winter.

Amazing fit & quality
I bought these jeans in green & absolutely love them. The fabric is of excellent quality, not as thick as it appears on the picture, and the fit is very flattering. They go really well with lace up ankle boots or flats. Would definitely recommend them as an investment piece :-)

Perfect Essential Jeans!
I will live in these jeans. They are so comfortable, will go with lots (I have the Copenhagen Blue), and although a bit pricey they are a good buy. I'm sure I will be tempted to buy them in another colour too! The shape is perfect for my middle aged figure and they have a nice straight leg, not too narrow.

Favourite jeans ever
I love love love these jeans. I will never look at another pair again, I'm just going to buy these in every colour. They are so comfortable and extremely flattering, they look great, which I put down to how well they are made and the good quality fabric they are made from, and you can literally wear them with anything. The length is perfect on me. I wear mine nearly every day. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Bought these today so glad I did!
My jeans look lovely and really fit, (16 s) so although I feel that they're a bit pricey I'll save money because I don't need any alterations. The colour raspberry sorbet is unusual and goes well with the rest of my summer wardrobe. I really recommend them and wish I found them sooner as my size is sold out in the other colours.

These jeans are a fabulous fit - but I am wearing the short length as cropped trousers as unfortunately the long length are not long enough for me.
It would be great if White Stuff would make an XLong length in basic jeans and trousers. The Xlong length could do with being an extra 2" longer than the long. Would be nice to be able to wear full length jeans in this style in the winter.
Otherwise these jeans are a super fit and extremely comfortable.
