9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Frost

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Frost is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from These jeans let me down I got these jeans about 7 months ago. They are very comfortable and I love the high waist, they've been my go to jeans. But yesterday they got a rip in them. Given how much I paid and how little time I had them I'm a bit disappointed. I've heard how high quality Madewell jeans are but now I'm not so sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fool me twice... I have bought these jeans twice now. The first time I carelessly washed them and they faded significantly and developed this weird streaky pattern all over them. I loved how dense the black was when I originally bought them so I bit the bullet and bought a second pair since the fit was still great and I was just going to use the old ones as my "gray" jeans instead of black. I wore them a couple of times before i reluctantly washed them. I washed them inside out with all dark colors thinking washing with a towel or something lighter ruined the first pair, but unfortunately the same thing happened to my second pair. Now I'm stuck with 2 pairs of not so black jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ehhhh I'm 5"11 and ordered these in tall, and they're still about 3 inches above my ankle bone. I kept them anyway because I love how they fit. I have had them about 6 months, washed them 3 times and they are now veryyyy grey. They have lost their black color and do not look as good as they were when I first purchased them. I would not recommend these for their price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fades too quickly I was so excited that Madewell finally came out with the high rise skinnies in black, but after just one wash they are completely faded (now more of a dark grey). Such a bummer because they fit perfectly. Wouldn't recommend spending the $$ if you're looking for "true black" denim.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ripped in the crotch after 2 months! I LOVE all things madewell. However they fell short with this particular pair of jeans! They were clearly NOT "made well" ... this seems to be a recurring issue with these. I've never had jeans rip like this before. Pretty dissatisfied and disappointed with this purchase. The upside is that the manger offered a refund/replacement. The downside is I got the same pair and just now noticed the horrible reviews. I would have hoped the patrons at the store would have mentioned the reaccuring issue before I got the same pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thin jegging-like material, not satisfied I have worn Madewell denim for years and always pride them for quality, so I was really excited to get a brand spankin new dark black pair of high rise skinny skinny jeans!!! However, I am not at all happy with the pair I received from my online purchase! I find the material to be too thin and overly stretchy. Madewell has changed the composition of their denim from time to time and these are only 93% cotton, making them less like actual denim and more like jeggins in my opinion. I prefer my older pair of high riser skinny skinny jeans which are 98% cotton, and feel like an actual pair of jeans not a flimsy pair of jeggings that suction to my body like spandex. If you want your denim to fit you skin tight, these are definitely for you. If you want a classic, and classy, fitting pair of quality denim, these are not your jeans. I will be returning these in store and asking about any denim with a higher percentage of cotton.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fabric changes color I had these jeans for about a month. I loved the style and fit. However, the fabric over the zipper suddenly changed its color and has a powdery white look to it. I've tried everything to clean it but the problem seems to be the fabric itself. Very disappointing (especially since it's right at the front of the jeans!).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My favorite pants of all time until they ripped I adored these pants. They were so versatile and had the most flattering fit. Though, I was really upset when after five months, they ripped on the inner thigh. I never even machine-washed them. Despite the perfect fit and style, I don't think they're worth this price point due to the quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fade fast and rip I loved these jeans, even with the fading I thought they were still adorable. And I'm so disappointed that after only five months of wearing them they ripped. I have been very careful about washing them (because the color fades so easily) but still they ripped. They ripped below the butt so it's not even a cute rip that I could pull off. I'm so disappointed because these were my favorite pair of jeans, and I've bought jeans from madewell in the past and I have never had this issue before.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ripped These were my favorite jeans, and they are so cute on, but, like a few other reviews said, they ripped after only a few months. The jeans were actually big on me, but the fabric was too thin. I'm so disappointed since I usually love Madewell jeans.
