Rated 4 out of 5 by tarara flattering fit though a little snug
i do love these jeans and see the quality. they're lightweight without being flimsy. the description does warn to size up which maybe i should've done, though i can squeeze into my usual size.
they're a really dark blue denim, almost black. great length for people too lazy to hem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kmpls13 almost perfect
I agree with the commenter above, LiaLia. I am short, and the pair of skinny skinny ankle jeans i bought over a year and a half ago now are still my most favorite pair of jeans. Something about Madewell jeans fit me through the waist, hip, leg and length better and more comfortably than any other brand I've tried. My main concern is something about the new cut, which is what LiaLia above noticed...the ankle is wider?! I wouldn't say "flare" but it doesn't look as skinny as I expect it to be, and I'm not sure it's the look I want. The ankle looks narrow on the model in the product description image above, strange.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ldot Not worth it, unfortunately
Wash is nice
Stretchy without feeling too much like leggings
Ankle is not as tapered as it looks in the photos, needs to be cuffed
Stretches out soooo much after one wear.
Had to return them :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by LiaLia Great pair of jeans... not the same fit as previous pairs
Madewell jeans are the only ones that fit me in the waist, the hips, the thighs, and the ankles. The skinny skinny ankle jeans actually fit like jeans should since I'm so short, which is why I loved these things!
Sadly, something has happened with the new cut of these jeans. I have a pair that I bought from Madewell a little over a year ago and they fit like a glove. With the new fit though, the ankle part is about as wide as the calf part. They are weird! An ankle flare thing happens and it is super awkward and does not look right. What is even more sad is that I tried the other colors too, hoping that it was just one shade that had a weird fit issue, but it had the same problem.
Other than that, the quality is perfect, the shade is beautiful, and the material is as comfortable as any pair of jeans could be.
Unfortunately for me, I'm going to stick with my year old jeans (that fit from thigh to ankle!). Sigh.
