Product Details
Easy and relaxed, our newest straight fit is just a touch lean through the legs for a refined French-lady-with-a-capsule-wardrobe feel. The 9 1/2" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet (plus, a touch of added stretch ensures you're still totally comfortable).

Slim Straight Jeans: Knee-Rip Edition

Slim Straight Jeans: Knee-Rip Edition is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jeans I am forever on the search for the perfect pair of jeans. I have a huge denim collection and I am a big fan of madewell jeans - they are one of the only brands that understands lots of stretch AND cute washes can exist together (blah jeggings from other brands). I am obsessed with this pair of jeans. Tight throughout the legs/butt and looser through shins & ankles. Not your classic skinny fit but something in between. I wear a 29 but could easily go up to a 30 in all of their jeans (I like my jeans snug). I am curvy in that I have bigger legs, thighs & butt with smaller waist. This pair has the perfect amount of stretch to stay snug even after hours of wear, mid-waisted (not too high or too low) and a classic medium denim wash (like old school original jeans) with well placed knee rips. The inseam hits right above my ankle bone (regular length) (I am 5’7”). I own two pairs of these jeans- exact same wash, style & size. That’s how much I love them! Buy these right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorites! These are my new favorites! I had the non-knee rip edition and I love them so much I bought these, and I couldn't even wait until they went on sale. If there were more style with the Magic Pockets, I would buy all of them. They are truly magical, and should be on all styles of Madewell jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Slim Jeans These jeans are perfectly described. Not too skinny, just perfectly slim. I like the slight whiskering, leg length, and rise. The only downside is they stretched out a lot after the first wear. Would love to see this style in different washes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from more like skinny jeans These are very nice jeans but I returned them because they fit more like skinny jeans and not straight legs. I am 5'9" and 150 lb.(very hourglassy at 39-27-39)--skinny jeans just don't work for me. The magic pockets are awesome and I would try other jeans with similar construction. Also, the color was different than pictured in the photo. Less faded and more blue than I had hoped for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit funny I love madewell jeans but these fit my bum a little funny and the legs were too long once again. I had my.oyher pair tailored but sent these ones back because ya can't fix a funny looking bum.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work on me I think on the right body type, these could be okay. They were very high waisted and flattened my rear. They fit TTS, and although they weren't as fitted below the knee as skinnies, they were still fitted. The fabric was kinda thin and stretchy and they didn't have much style. I think I will be sticking to the slim boyfriends and the Rivet and Thread styles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from please more straight leg jeans! I have the dark wash of these with no holes and absolutely love them. They are so flattering. I have athletic legs and a butt and I enjoy the extra room in the legs. I bought these bc I love the other style, but I guess jeans with holes are not for me. So sad, because these fit great. The holes just made me feel like they’d get ruined soon. please please make more washes with no holes!! Also, I’ve never even had to wash my other pair - they wear that well!!
