The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 212.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick denim; great wash for summer; length is good for short gals. LOVED these jeans. I have a long torso and they fit perfectly on my waist. Not too snug in the crotch and does not ride up or give a front wedgie. That often happens to me with high waisted jeans as my torso is just too long. The jeans are no stretch, so the run slightly snug compared to other Madewell jeans with stretch. I am 5/2" 140 lbs., usually a 28" in Madewell and got a 28" in these as well. Snug, but you want them to be when you buy them as they will stretch out in time when the denim threads loosens a bit. Length is directly at my foot, where it curves when I roll them down, however, I think the style is to have this jean a little cropped, so they are a little long for shorter gals who want the same look as the model. I rolled mine up 3x and it was good to go. Cuff was a little thick, but I was still able to pull the look off. Great summer color. For those that like high waisted jeans and want a nice light colored denim for the summer...these are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Break in time but so worth it I love these jeans. I ordered these online in a 27 and a 26, because I wasn't sure about the fit. I saw them in store and tried them on, and talked to the manger and she said there is a break in time, just like with raw denim, which will lead to a nicer fit, and she advised me to get them smaller than would be comfortable. Great decision, they look fantastic and I have had several complements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans, but: please make w/ longer inseam! These have become my favorite jeans ever, even though I had to try them on on a few different occasions before actually committing. I'm 5'7" and ALMOST didn't get these because they are quite short. I get that ankle-length is in, but for a lot of women these are more reasonably called capris (decidedly less hip). Given their popularity, I would think you could safely make these with longer inseam options and still sell out. I didn't think I would like 100% cotton jeans, but as other reviewers noted, they stretch just enough to mold to you and then stay put. Amazing! i also love the 11" rise. I get compliments on these all the time. I really want to buy a second pair of the Perfect Summer Jean, but I don't want distressing so I'm currently out of luck. Madewell: produce these in longer lengths and in darker washes, and you've got a new staple jean that people are going to keep scooping up. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jeans The name says itself. These jeans are perfect. A lighter weight fabric - great for summer. Nice color. No rips. The best comfortable rise for me. I'm 5'4", pear shaped, waist is 26", hips are 37". I got size 26 and they fit just right. After two wearings they didn't stretch much. Thinking about ordering one more pair. Please make them in darker shades without rips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appropriately named! I feel like the Madewell fairy peered into my dreams and created these jeans. I am usually a 27, and after reading other reviews I was a bit conflicted on what size to order. Ended up ordering my usual 27 and they fit like a dream - for reference, I am 5' 7", 135lbs and shaped like a guitar :) My hip-to-waist ratio usually makes it difficult to find jeans that fit well, but these are, as the name implies, perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit but it takes time when i first put these on they made my bum look SO flat. It's non stretch, so I walked around the house for about 20 minutes to see if the fit changed and i am glad i did. the denim relaxes and now the fit is absolutely perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jeans I've owned! I have loved the pairs of madewell jeans I've purchased before, but these have been my favorites, by far. They're a stiffer denim, so the fit feels sturdy, but like a good pair that's ready to be worn in. Felt thick enough for fall/winter as well. I'm also 5'2", so sometimes high waisted tend to look like they're almost to my shoulders; These hit perfectly, and weren't too tight in the leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, indeed I'm typically a 25 or 26 in denim, but I purchased these in a 27. These do not have spandex in them and I needed a little more room. The 26 fit, but I was nervous about what would happen if I ate a burrito in them (and let's be honest, we NEED to consider these things). In any case, why are we even putting spandex in denim? These are so perfect! They are soft and also sturdy; the wash is light and summery, my butt is lookin' A+. What more can I say?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly amazing I kept getting random ads for these jeans and promotional e-mails. Madewell jeans don't normally fit me very well but when I finally ordered and received these, i was SO pleasantly surprised. They are perfect!!! I'm 5'10 140lb and ordered a size 28 and the size and length are great. Soft, comfortable denim. Not a lot of stretch but not too restrictive either. Perfect with sneakers or sandals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are fantastic! I read the reviews before I bought these and it was a bit of a crapshoot as to which way to go. Some people were saying they were snug, but then other people were saying they were a bit roomy. I bought my normal waist (27) and I have to admit that it was a bit of a struggle to get them on (the amount of pizza I've eaten in the past month definitely was taunting me). I almost returned them to size up, but once I got them on and wore them for about an hour, they stretched just enough. I'm hooked. They're snug in fit but not uncomfortable. They have a perfect vintage look, and the wash is exquisite -- just right for spring and summer. They're the kind of jeans that hip, cool girls wear -- subtly sexy and effortlessly stylish. So, in short, if you're reading this, you should buy them because I'm sure that's you. I'm over here pretending that's me.
