Seriously, though, what’s your favorite thing about these jeans?
From the moment I put them on, they were my favorite pair of jeans. I love the way they fit, and the nice amount of stretch definitely stands out for me. So glad to have men’s options now. Best day ever!

JOSE, CREATIVE PRODUCTION PRO

How would you sum up your personal style?
Lots of black and greens, unintentional paint stains. Still learning about prints and patterns. That said, I like to clean up nice given the opportunity.

What’re your thoughts on jeans in general?
Haven’t thought much about them to be honest, I just hope for the best. Consistency seems hard to find with the fit and comfort of most jeans, regardless of price. They tend to be either too baggy or too tight in all the wrong places.

Which Madewell pair did you test?
The Slim fit in black.

Seriously, though, what’s your favorite thing about these jeans?
I was worried about the idea of stretchy jeans but it’s actually the best part. I tested these running to the subway in New York summer weather and still found them to be comfortable.

True or false: Once you go Madewell denim, you never go back?
True, I’m hooked. When can I get more?!

SETH, DIGITAL MARKETING MASTER

How would you sum up your personal style?
Fraternity man turned New Yorker with some queer flair here and there.

What’re your thoughts on jeans in general?
Jeans = life. Once it’s too cold for shorts I only wear jeans (in public…love me some comfy sweats for relaxing at home).

Which Madewell pair did you test?
I tested the Slim in dark blue.

Seriously, though, what’s your favorite thing about these jeans?
I love that it feels modern thanks to that taper through the thigh but also has a more traditional look with the looser calf. Great for the office and for running errands!

True or false: Once you go Madewell denim, you never go back?
Wait…other people make jeans? I totally forgot!

DAVID, CREATIVE AND PRODUCTION GURU

How would you sum up your personal style?
NYC downtown kid circa 1996 meets Léon from The Professional.

What’re your thoughts on jeans in general?
Having an athletic build, jeans and I have somewhat of a strained relationship. It’s often hard to find jeans that fit both my waist and my thighs.

Which Madewell pair did you test?
The true blue Straight fit.

Seriously, though, what’s your favorite thing about these jeans?
These are definitely the best fitting, most comfortable jeans I’ve ever worn. The stretch allows them to fit comfortably over my thighs while still fitting well in the waist and making it easy for me to move. I feel like I can do anything in these jeans. Also, the cut is on point and feels modern and cool. Bravo design team!

True or false: Once you go Madewell denim, you never go back?
Definitely true!
