Chimala® Ankle Jeans

Chimala® Ankle Jeans is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, amazing jeans Yes, these are realllllly expensive. In fact, I had been eyeing them for over a year before I finally bought them, but they are perfect. I tried on so many pairs of jeans in the search for amazing boyfriend jeans and these are it. They are tight in all the right places, yet comfortable and baggy in others. Every time I wear them someone asks me where they are from. I plan on wearing them everyday until they fall off my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I normally never write reviews... But these jeans are incredibly cool on. Every time I wear them I get at least 2-3 people asking where I got them. I realize they are pricy but they are also timeless. I LITERALLY went back and bought the grey and the cream. Perfect distressed and insanely cool without looking like you are trying too hard. But then again, that's MADEWELL!!! Worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fit These jeans are very stylish and offer the most flattering fit of any boyfriend jean I have tried. To ensure the fit is flattering, I would recommend sizing down, otherwise the seat becomes baggy and is less flattering. The fact that there is no stretch in the denim is critical! This is how jeans should fit/feel. I am 5'7" and weigh 125 pounds. Based on the online measurements, I ordered the 27. I returned for the 26 which is a perfect fit. I will likely order another style in this brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stiff denim Beautiful denim but runs very small. After reading other reviews and the size chart, I sized down-BIG MISTAKE. Order your regular size, ladies! I had to return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from runs super huge! I wear a 25-27 depending on jean brand.. these 26 are HUGE, i look like i'm wearing my dad's pants! Like 2-3 sizes too large. Please carry more smaller sizes, 24 and 25's would be awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found them to run large I am normally a 27 in jeans 5'3" 125lbs - I ordered a 26 and 27 - 27 was way too big, 26 still a bit big - since there is not a 25 just have to decide if I feel these will stretch too much. I am on the fence. Overall a great pair of jeans!!! The sizing is the issue for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but gorgeous! I LOVE these jeans. Took a bit of a risk ordering them online as I had never tried on this particular brand and it all worked out; they fit perfectly. I haven't had the opportunity to wash them yet so I can't speak to that but as far as fit, comfort and style go, it's win-win-win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Chimalas I have many Chimala pairs that I have bought on other sites, but I must say that I am 100% loyal to Madewell after purchasing my 4th pair, why? Excellent service at the store, on the phone and online. All the sales reps are amazing. They are polite and helpful. I love Chimalas and Madewell has the best prices. These jeans are expensive, but they ladt and look great. I hate strechy jeans, these are the real deal!!!!!
