Product Details
We updated our signature slim boyfriend fit with a higher rise (think a vintage men's jean cut to flatter you). The result? A cool new pair that beautifully blurs the weekend/weekday line.

The High-Rise Slim Boyjean: Painter Edition

The High-Rise Slim Boyjean: Painter Edition is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have these been? I typically wear skinny jeans or leggings but decided I needed some more regular jeans. I saw them in the store and didn't even think I would like them but I was wrong. They fit very comfortably and will be great for work, hanging out, and just everyday wear. I wear anywhere from a 28-30 at Madewell and took these in a 30 for a slouchy look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOOVE THESE These are amazing. Run slightly big but quality material, and not too stretchy. I can wear them twice before washing to get them "Tight" again. Wouldve ordered one size down but very happy with the purchase anyway. Great jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jeans ever The fit is absolutely perfect and they are so soft and comfortable. The photos online do not do them justice. I originally bought these for casual weekend wear as I wanted something comfortable but fun. However, I wear them so much that I am considering getting a second pair. I can't wear them daily to my formal office workplace, but I want to wear them every single casual Friday! This is my first pair of high waisted pants and I was hesitant but now these are all I want to wear. The high waist prevents any risk of muffin top and they make my butt look great. I love love love them. They run very large. I had to size down two sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual jean. Easy comfortable jean. Rolled up hem is the best look for these. They are high waisted, and worn in. The 27, my regular size, ran a little big, but for the style that's ok. I'm sure these will be fav's for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Just got these and although they are quite high waisted on me, they are very comfortable. They have a nice fit and wash. I like that the denim is very soft, but not thin. I went with my Madewell slim boyfriend fit, which is one size down from my skinnies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorbs Beautiful, heavy-weight denim, great vintage/distressed wash. Love the high-waist and boyfriend style. I’m usually a 4/6 and I ordered a 27 and they fit perfect, a bit of slouch without being huge. As they break in I think they will fit even better! Keep in mind these are meant to fit loose, if you want a snug fit size down or skip this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Fit I'm devoted to the cruiser style jean by Madewell. This fit is my new go-to. When I went to my local store one of the employees told me to go two sizes down due to the high rise, and she was spot on. These jeans are so comfortable and stylish. A must have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Boyfriend Jean These jeans are great! They are slightly slouchy, but so comfortable! :I love the high waist and they have just enough stretch, but don't stretch out too much. I am 5'7" 140 lbs with athletic legs and got my usual 27. I wanted these to fit a little more loose. The paint splatter is cute too and hides all kinds of spills. These are my new go to for chasing my kiddos around!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from runs super large!!! i haven't officially bought these, but i tried these at the store and wanted to share! they run HUGE!! i'm usually a size 27 on madewell jeans and had to size down to a 24 for a perfect fit. so beware, these run very large, and are stretchy so size down at least 2 or 3 sizes.
