Good basic wardrobe essentialh -
By: Breffny from Kent
Every woman should have a denim skirt, and this one is the best by far. It is comfortable and flattering! Wear it in Summer, and also in Winter with boots and thicker tights.
Very disappointed -
By: AmericanBrit from UK
I am a huge Orvis fan. However, this skirt was not at all what I expected. Be warned, this skirt is a straight cut with no room for forgiveness if you are a pear-shaped person (me). The waist was huge on me, and yet the skirt was tight across the thighs. I thought I was ordering a skirt with a flared panel and it was not at all that. These are going back unfortunately. I wish there had been something in the description indicating that this was a straight cut skirt with little flare. The picture is a bit deceiving.
Nearly Best Purchase Ever so Far -

Excellent fabric, style, cut etc. but above all, it's comfortable, wearable and goes with all my other clothes! Accurate sizing. A classic everyday skirt a cut above everyday thinking.
Classic, Pure Fiber Cotton Skirt -

Timeless good taste and excellent quality. Modest, yet not too long in length.

I have one of these in every color. Love the skirts, the fits, the colors. One problem. The previous black one I bought, I got something sticky on it and spot cleaned it. Do NOT spot clean this skirt. It left a grayish spot in the skirt that NOTHING could get out. I tried washing it over and over as a whole and it always had the grayer spot on it. I finally gave it to Salvation Army, hoping someone would enjoy it, even with the spot.
Best Purchase Ever -

I love the denim skirt. It is a perfect fit and great addition as a casual dress for a quick outing.

This is a tried and true skirt. I will wear it often and feel comfortable in it. Just wish you had had it in my size in blue denim. Also, wish that the pockets were a big larger.

Good denim, rather soft. But 'petite' it is not. I ordered petite, but had to take the skirt up 5 1/2 inches. Orvis needs to check with their vendors as to the requirements or standards for a 'petite' label.
Wonderful skirt -
I was looking for a knee length denim skirt and my mom got me this instead and I am so THRILLED. It fits perfectly. Great buy.
Great Skirt! -
By: Kate3700 from Westerville, OH
I first ordered this skirt about five years ago, and have worn it that long. My five year old skirt is looking slightly faded (but still wearable), so I ordered a new one on sale. I love this skirt. It is well-made, versatile,and yes, the lines are slimming! I hope to wear my new one at least five years, and I will still continue to wear the older one too!
The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim
Few fabrics can boast the tradition and the colorful history that denim claims. From gold miner’s staple to the darling of high fashion, this down-to-earth indigo twill has worked its way into our hearts and into our closets. Our signature version, Orvis Vintage Denim is a traditional mid-weight denim made of pure cotton.
The Rugged Outdoor Fabric of Choice for Centuries
No other fabric is as quintessentially American as denim is. Used for the sails on Christopher Columbus’s ships, it first arrived on our shores in 1492, but the rugged textile had already been known in Europe for centuries. From the original serge de Nîmes, denim had been manufactured in France since 300 A.D. ad the outdoor fabric of choice for workers and farmers throughout Northern Europe.
Orvis Vintage Denim: The Toughness of Original Denim, but Prewashed for Softness
This sturdy cotton fabric derives its toughness from the weave — twill is the strongest of all of the fabric weaves, with threads woven in a tight diagonal pattern for increased strength. This diagonal pattern, or twill line, makes the fabric very durable and prevents it from tearing or ripping easily. The steeper the twill line, the higher quality the fabric; this is because the steeper weaves have more yarns per inch. Woven in this strong pattern, our 8 oz. Vintage Denim is prewashed for softness and will only get better with age.
Great for Travel
Orvis Vintage Denim is ideal for travel. Our sturdy, easy-care skirts, pants, and dresses are as stylish as they are comfortable, resist wrinkles, and the mid-weight fabric is suitable for year-round wear. Because our Vintage Denim is so versatile, practical, and popular, we offer a wide variety of styles for women in traditional denim blue, plus a range of wardrobe-expanding colors.
