Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Mitchell Wash: Drop-Hem Edition

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Mitchell Wash: Drop-Hem Edition is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullseye! I've always had issues finding jeans that fit the way I want them to. When I saw these jeans and the unique drop hem style, I decided to give Madewell denim a try. These are my first pair of jeans from Madewell that I bought without trying them on. I took a risk and purchased them based on the other reviews. The risk paid off. These jeans fits perfectly! In fact, I wore them today and it did not stretch out. They are very comfortable and the high waist holds the belly in place. I am short (5'2"), so the crop style is like regular length for me and did not have to have them hemmed! It fits very well and Madewell hit the mark with these jeans that are soft and not too tight. I wore them with my Frankie boots and it gives a touch of edge. I love my new jeans! Thank you, Madewell! Please make more of this style and in petites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jeans These jeans are fabulous! They hold you in, in all the right places and don't bag out throughout the day. They are stretchy and comfortable and the crop boot cut is right on trend. I'm usually between and 2 and a 4 and went with the 4 for more comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Jean This is my new favorite jean. I don't usually spend this much on a pair of jeans, but after trying on other brands in similar styles, I bought these. They sat in the bag for 3 weeks, and I finally took off the tags and wore them yesterday. WOW! The denim is a dream- thick and comfy. The style is so modern and fun. The fit is chic and slim- definitely the best out of all the other brands I tried on. I had to re-think the shoe style, and went with a heavier bottomed desert style boot- it balanced out the kick flare for me. I too went down one size for the perfect fit. I'm totally hooked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect "Casually Stylish" Jeans! These jeans were my first introduction to Madewell, and now I'm hooked. The drop hem is a gorgeous little detail that garners many compliments, and the shape is so flattering. I have short legs, so they hit about 2 inches lower to my ankle than the model, and I actually prefer it that way. It's almost like a flare jean, but not too baggy and wide, and definitely more polished. The wash is great too - it goes with pretty much everything I own. The rise is incredibly flattering, and the denim quality is out of this world. I may need another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute and comfy! Some might find this slightly larger than their usual size (bc it's a little more stretchy and so comfy) but it works for me! I am usually 25 for Madewell jeans (I own at least 15 pairs of Madewell jeans!), and depending on the style/wash/materials I take 24 occasionally (for example slim boyjean). I took 25 for this and it works perfectly. I'm 5'4 and 115lbs. The "flare" at the bottom is almost invisible to me (unlike some other review pointed out), looks more like straight jeans, but a hint of kick makes this jeans stylish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Flattering!!! I LOVE these jeans they are so comfortable and fit so well! I actually went with my normal size (25) even though they told me to size down. I felt they were more comfortable this way and not so restricting (especially since they are high-waisted and I like to eat LOL) the only thing is that once you wash them the drop hem tucks under and becomes a regular hem... and its impossible to get it to stay down. However, this was sort of a plus for me since they were too long to begin with (I'm 5'3'' and 110lbs) I actually wish they were an inch shorter still so they could look like they do on the model. Wish they made petite lengths and not just tall lengths. We all need to remember that the average height of women in the US is only about 5'4-5'5'' just sayin' :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beST jeans ever Ordered the Cali boot cut drop hem edition in size 25 after consulting customer service and it fits like a dream. i have owned many pairs but have always issues with the thigh area being too loose if the waist fit and knee area getting baggy. This pair has passed with flying colours. With the boot cut and fringey hem, it's just my fave jean now and forever. For info , I am 5'5" and 110 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering cropped jean This is the perfect cut for me -- not too high-waisted but definitely not low-slung, a slight kick at the hem but not a flare, and cropped just so. I am 5'5", 116lbs. Looks good with sneakers or ankle boots. I usually take a 27, but the 26 in the Kane (black) wash fit perfectly. This Mitchell wash was a little looser, so I bought a 25, knowing they will stretch a bit with wear. I hope Madewell makes this jean in an even darker rinse, and in colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Cali! Pros: The rise is high, but not too high. The slight flare is flattering. The wash is a perfect, slightly faded blue. The drop hem looks cool. These have elastane in them and are super-comfortable. Cons: Beware that sizing varies between washes in the cali jean. I usually wear a 27 but sized down to a 26 in the mitchell wash. I tried on the jean in black, and that one fit true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite jeans! I already loved Madewell jeans, but these immediately became my favorite pair to wear. They are extremely soft, stretchy, and comfortable, and the fit was perfect. I'm usually a 25 or 26, and the 25 was perfect. I'm 5'3" and I think the length is great for petites (not as cropped as in the photo). They are more violet blue in person than the photo, but I think it looks better. I never spend this much on jeans, but definitely don't regret it.
