9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HIGH WAIST DENIM EVER I have been trying to find a dark pair of distressed skinny denim for a long long time now. I haven't purchased a "skinny" denim from Madewell for a while because years ago I had a pair and they quickly lost shape and shrunk and were just not flattering. So I tried this pair on in store thinking I was going to have the same issue with them being unflaterring and weird on me (I am an athletic body shape - not super skinny legs - 5'6" 145lbs) but they were SO FLATTERING!! I vary in size with Madewell denim. Their boyfriend fit I wear a 26, their regular rise I wear a 27, and high rise denim like these I feel most comfortable in a 28 - the waist does stretch out a little but its more comfortable for me that way. I think a 27 would be fine as well after a few wears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE These are adorable. Bought my normal size but I wish I had sized down. They were just too cute to wait for an exchange!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ripped black skinnies I LOVE these jeans. I bought a pair maybe a year ago and left them while traveling overseas, and I was devastated. So obviously I had to repurchase them- no regrets. Even bought them in the curvy fit (because the curvy is AMAZING). The knee rips are perfectly placed and they don’t rip even further, like most ripped jeans do. The length is perfect- right below the ankle for me (and I’m 5’7”). Love love love these jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Any Season Black Jeans Oh my goodness, these jeans are incredible. I love the distressed knees. It adds an edge to the jean without looking sloppy. And I could go on for days about the fit, particularly In the backside. It is so complimentary to that curve. The length is great and all around just a great jean for any season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEAVEN SENT! These jeans are just as comfortable as they are stylish! Madewell is always spot on in regards to sizing. I am 5'6 and 130 pounds -- I generally wear a 27 and they were the perfect fit! I am loyal to Madewell and these jeans definitely don't break that streak.
