9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Polly Wash

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Polly Wash is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect basic jeans I'm 5'3", ~120 lbs with an athletic build, so I sized down from my normal 26 to 25 based on other reviews and some other Madewell jeans that I've purchased in 26 and have stretched. These jeans are a perfect length for me - long enough where I could fold once or twice for booties, but they don't bunch at my ankles. They are dark enough to not look sloppy and light enough that they're casual and fun. The stretch is perfect - not too much but they definitely give a little so you can live your life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i finally found "my jeans" i have been searching for the perfect pair of jeans for around 15 years and these are it! i am 5'5'' and 115lbs and the 26 regular fits like a soft glove. the color is perfect and just like the picture. the length is perfect and stops just above the ankle (no folding necessary!) and the 9'' rise stops just below my belly button and stays tight all the way around my waist (often high rise jeans don't fit my high waste neatly leaving extra space in the back so these are exceptional). all around my dream jeans. perfect perfect perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I've never owned a nicer pair of jeans. I just wish you could get them in short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just stop looking, these are your jeans I originally went to the Madewell near my parents' house over Thanksgiving to check out the darker wash Tencel high-rise skinnies, but they were out of my typical sizes (27 and 28) and the 29s in those were just too big. There was a lone 27 and 28 left of these, however, and I was like, eh, I never wear light wash denim so why not? I slipped these bad boys on and was amazed at how flattering they were as compared to any other Madewell skinnies I'd ever tried on. The 28s fit okay, but the crotch hung a little low and did some weird bunching thing when I bent over in them. The 27s were a much better fit. The ankle is (FINALLY) actually a true skinny, as opposed to last year's 10-inch ankle opening. They're streeeeeetchy so definitely take a size down - I've been wearing them all day at work, and they've maintained their shape through 6 hours of sitting at a desk. THANK YOU MADEWELL for listening to the feedback and making a wearable high-riser! YESSSS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I gasped. I am 5'2", 105 lbs and have had trouble with Madewell jeans in the past. I only wear skinny jeans, but often times the jeans I've bought from Madewell weren't skinny in the ankle and looked not so great. I bought these in the store today in a size 24. I actually gasped when I tried them on. They fit PERFECTLY. I'm tempted to buy another pair just because I love them so much. The only thing is, these aren't as thick as some of the Madewell jeans I own and a little more stretchy, but I definitely don't think they feel like jeggings. The wash is perfect too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Jean I have finally found the perfect pair of jeans! As soon as I pulled them on, I knew I needed to purchase more. Enough stretch to make them comfortable but still keep their form. I feel like a million bucks in these jeans. So glad they started making more TALL/TALLER options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fit like a glove These are my favorite jeans I own from madewell. super stretchy, and the closest "jegging" feel I've had in any madewell denim. great color for all seasons, would definitely recommend! super flattering as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Magic! I have been faithfully wearing Madewell jeans since they opened in SF in 2013. I like the density of these new jeans and the stretch they provide across the booty and hips - uber comfy. I am not 100% on the 9" rise due to the way the buttoning hits my long torso. I can't be certain it decreases or accentuates the post winter muffin top. All in all, I always get compliments when I wear these jeans, so that's the winner for me. The rise is great year round and I love the amber stitching for the little bit of contrast it provides. As with most (if not all Madewell jeans) try them on and if they feel "fine" SIZE DOWN and they will be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So great These jeans are almost perfect. Nice versatile wash for fall/winter. The whiskering and side threads make your legs looks thinner. I like the stretching part in jeans, if they are skinny, so for me this is a plus. My waist is 68 cm and the hips are 94 cm. I'm usually between 25 and 26. I took the size 25 and it's tight through legs (I guess they will stretch out) and not so tight at waist. I gave them 4 stars instead of 5, because they are a little bit too long for my height (162 cm). I wish they were one inch shorter, than they will be perfect without 'almost'. Madewell, please make shorter lengths!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Odd Fit I've now purchased several pairs of Madewell jeans, and these have unfortunately been my first let down. The color is great, and quality is there, but the sizing was off for myself. I tend to wear a 28 (5'5", 130) in the less stretchy styles. However, I returned these to the store for a 27 after worrying that they'd stretch too much. The 27 is super tight around my legs, but loose around the hips and I can't go without a belt. I've always had the problem of finding the right pair of jeans that avoids saggy bottoms due to the shape of my hips/legs. So I'm a little sad after having other Madewell jeans fit so magically. I've still been wearing them 3-4 times a week to work for well over a month, and haven't seen any quality issues noted by the other users.
