Product Details
With its waist-accentuating high rise and tapered legs, our vintage-inspired summer style is here to stay (call 'em "mom jeans"...if your mom was a '90s supermodel). Washed down for a supersoft finish, this 100% cotton pair will feel tight at first, but break in perfectly after a couple of wears.  
  • We recommend getting these in your usual size—they'll feel tight at first but stretch out juuuuuuust enough after a couple of wears.
  • Front rise: 11"; inseam: 28"; leg opening for size 25: 12 3/4".
  • Sits above hip, fitted through hip and thigh, with a slim leg.
  • Premium 100% cotton denim from Italy's renowned Candiani mill.
  • Machine wash.
  • Import.
  • 5'4" and below? Try our short inseam; 5'9"-5'11"? Choose Tall.
  • Monogramming available for US customers: To have this item embroidered with up to nine letters for $10 (free for Madewell Insiders), please call 866 544 1937.

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 352.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never taking them off I am 5'4" 125 ish natural waist 27 and hips 37 ish .. so I ordered the 27's and 28's. Tried the 28's on first and immediately took them off -- too big, I know how these jeans stretch over time and it would be a mistake. 27's fit like a glove, like I've been wearing them already for a year, not tight at all, very flattering, really so great. In fact could be just a smidge tighter. There's looseness in the waist too, I could fit my hand, two hands maybe three hands between the waistband and the back of my waist, but honestly you can't even tell . I'm over here debating whether to get the 26's or allow the 27's to go through the dry cycle to cinch up. I’m so smitten I’ll probably stick with the 27’s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confidence booster I love dressing unusually but have always had a hard time showing my different sense of style in jeans. These jeans have been the pair that have helped me transition from exclusively wearing skinny jeans to wearing something that shows off my figure in a new and creative way. It might sound sappy, but these jeans are slightly unusual (at least for me) and help me to communicate better to others my confidence in myself and in my own differences. Beautifully thick material, extremely happy, springy wash. Perfection

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you sales lady in Seattle! I just wanted to thank the gal in downtown Seattle for helping me find the right fit. I struggled with the fit of these for so long. I am a 25 and ended up sizing down to a 23 thanks to the awesome sales lady's advice. In my head I'm thinking, "No!!! Too small, too small!!!" She kept saying to me "in these jeans size is just a number attached to the jean". She was so right! I did have to really squeeze into the jean but she told me that they would stretch out to be looser over time and fit like the most perfect jeans. I was scared at first and very hesitant. She was tiny like me and said she did the exact same thing and it worked out perfectly for her! Initially purchased these jeans in a 24 and they were so very bad on me so I gave them to my step daughter because she is a little bigger than me. This is my second time buying these. I love them so much now. I am 5'4" and 113 pounds for reference. Very flattering and very nice quality and perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found the perfect 100% cotton jeans I have had my eyes on these jeans for a long time now and I am soooo happy that I finally bought them. I’m 5’9”, around 128 pounds, and a size 25 fit perfectly! The waist was a tad too big but the rest of it fits great. And so so comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're even thinking about purchasing, just do it I have been eyeing these jeans for well over a year, and I finally caved and bought them. I say this with every new pair of denim I purchase from Madewell, but these really are my favorite jeans. So comfy, the perfect color and fit, and they look great dressed up or dressed down. And it doesn't hurt that they make the booty look good. These are the perfect modern take on the mom jean. I cannot recommend enough. For reference, I am 5'4" 125 pounds, and I bought my normal size 25 in these. They are tight at first just like any new pair of jeans, but after a few hours of wear, they start to form to your body and fit like a glove. So stop thinking about buying them and just do the dang thing already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sewn With Magic When I put on these jeans for the first time and looked at my butt in the mirror I blushed. (In a good way.) Was that MY butt?! I mean, I know what she looks like, and honestly I'd never seen her look better. I don't know what kind of magic these jeans are sewn with, but I'm hooked! They are also wonderfully soft to the touch. As far as sizing goes, these are definitely on the snug side, but the biggest struggle for me is in the waist, not my hips. I may actually size up from my normal 31 to accommodate this, but I'm debating because the fit everywhere else is fabulous. For reference, I'm 5'8, 170, and ordered the 31T. The length on the tall works well and provides the option to roll them if I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim Boyfriend I'm normally a size 29 and originally bought a 28 because the associate said size down. I ended up returning and getting a 27. The waist fits perfectly, which is what I wanted, and the legs are slightly stretched out (after a couple wears) for that slim boyfriend fit. The high waist is super flattering and the wash is prefect as we head into spring and summer! I would highly recommend this jean & you cannot beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome fit, great color! I just bought these jeans yesterday, and I’m obsessed! I’m consistently a 27 in most stores, but I eventually decided on the 26 in these jeans because the sales associate said they tend to stretch with time. For reference, I’m 5’8 and 138lbs with fairly long legs. As we speak I’m trying to break in these beauties! They’re a little tight on my thighs, but I trust that they’ll stretch out for a great, true fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From a former employee... As a former Madewell employee, I was very well-versed in how their jeans fit. Always go for the pair on the tighter side. However, with these, I found that I had to size up for them to feel comfortable. That said, they are wonderful! They look great with any kind of shoe or top, and they have not stretched out like some of my other pairs tend to do. Awesome jeans not just for summer!!!
