The High-Rise Slim Crop Boyjean: Knee-Rip Edition

The High-Rise Slim Crop Boyjean: Knee-Rip Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vintage Denim Goals My most favorite pair of jeans that I own! The wash, the color, the cut, the style, the fit... everything. Most of the reviews on here recommend to size down, but I'm happy that I got my normal size 27. They fit just the way I want them - high rise, slim, but enough room to tuck a t-shirt in, and are sooooo comfortable. The denim is incredibly soft and doesn't dig into my skin or make me feel suffocated at the end of the day. I haven't had any issues with them stretching out. I've been trying to transition out of skin-tight skinny jeans, and these are the perfect combo of a flattering straight-leg with a vintage feel + the distressing. I'd say get your normal size if you want them to fit more like a flattering "boyfriend" jean, size down if you'd like it to fit more like a skinny jean. I'd love for these to be made in more blue washes without distressing - hook it up Madewell :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Madewell Denim! If you’re thinking about buying these jeans, do it!! I only wear Madewell jeans and this style is my new favorite! They are so comfortable (I’ve actually slept in them)! I do recommend sizing down from your normal Madewell size. I wear a 26 and went with a 25 and probably should have gone with a 24.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these jeans but need a non-high rise version These jeans are so cute and I absolutely love them! But I'm 5'2" and the high rise was way too high waisted. I'm talking 3 or 4 inches above my belly button. Please make these in the normal rise! I have the raw hem slim boyjean and I live in them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spring / summer jeans! I love these jeans! Super cute and very of-the-moment style. I sized down one size to achieve a more fitted look, but it's still pretty relaxed. I have a short torso, so the high rise is so much more so, but I don't mind - they still look great otherwise!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good on petite frames Saw this jean on a few people and decided to try it. I kept my expectations low as I am 5’1” and often have to get jeans tailored - not to mention the fact that high rises are sometimes too high on me. These jeans look great and are super comfortable. I did a single cuff and they are the perfect length. I will wear these all summer for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect denim i got tired of wearing painted-on skinny jeans, and wanted to find some with a looser fit that were still chic. these fit the bill! i'm 5'0" with athletic thighs and a big booty, so i have a pretty hard time finding jeans that fit properly. i was amazed by these! the knee rips are forgiving (aka: not at my shins like most jeans with ripped knees), my thighs are hugged but not squeezed, and the silhouette is so flattering. i bought a size 26, and my only complaint is that the waist gaps a bit. i also tried on a 25, which fit my waist better, but was not as comfy in the thighs. you win some, you lose some! trade-off is worth it for these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve missed out !! I tried this Burt Wash on in store. I’m normally a 27 in MW 9 inch rises. I tried 27 and 28 in these and 27 fit perfectly!!!! I never thought these 11 inch rise would look good but they do!!!’ Nice lighter color and feel lovely. Soft with a bit of stretch. (Not snug like most in thighs). My new fave!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS JEAN I loved this jean since I saw the wash. It's a great wash and it is a great style. You can dress it up or down. The rise is perfect. I am usually a 30 in their jeans. I originally got the size 30 and it fits well if you want a more "baggy" fit. So I went back and got a 29 and they're even more perfect (I like a tighter fit). They stretch out a little through out the day. Either way I love this jean. Thanks Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Normally a 25/26, but got these in a 24 so they fit more like straight-leg jeans than baggy boyfriend jeans. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I am definitely into the true boyfriend type jean and these jeans are just that. I am 5'6'' 113 lbs and I typically wear a 25 in every single pair of jeans I own from Madewell, and I own quite a few, in all styles and cuts. After reading all the other reviews, I was afraid I would need a 24, so I went to the store to try them on. I tried on the 25 and they were perfect. I am going for the boyfriend fit, with the bagginess that would be expected and a 25 was perfect for me. If you are looking for a normal tight fitting jean, I would size down, but I love how these fit and I can wear them with all my crop tops. I don't need a belt to hold them up and they are perfect the way they are. They are more of a capri length on me, hitting a few inches above my ankle, but they will be great for spring and summer.
