9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Velvet

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Velvet is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great They are wonderful from the moment I tried them on. I was slightly hesitant to buy these online since I have bought another pair of jeans here before and they were not true to size at all however these ones fit great. Comfy without being loose. Tight in the right places. High rise is at the perfect height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, but I would size down. I LOVE these pants! You have to snag them at this price!!! They are really comfortable and I love that they have back pockets! I do suggest to size down because they get baggy after a few wears. Thankfully, Madewell let me exchange them. I highly suggest these for teachers or other careers that involve lots of movement. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft!!! I bought these on impulse in the store since they are so soft, and I'm glad I did! They are perfect for work (for business casual at least) and I'm planning to wear them out at night too. I bought a 25 - though size up if you are in between sizes. I just wanted more form-fitting skinny jeans. I am 5'3", 115 lbs, and the length is actually perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect length and fit I'm 5'4, 120lbs and a size 24 fit me perfectly. The length was perfect. (It's hard to find pants for my height.) The fit is amazing. I can't wait to find another pair of these! LOVE them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase These are comfy, fit well, and are slimming. I just wish the black was a bit deeper but otherwise I am very happy with them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and versatile Though I don't like high waist jeans, these are nice ones that you can dress up easily since the fabric is velvet. The color is not very deep black, however. The non stretchy stitching doesn't bother me. I would say they are TTS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love, but...stitching issue on mine Got these in my usual 28. So far, I've only tried them on so don't know if the fabric will stretch throughout the day, but I don't think they will since they're 98% cotton. However, I immediately noticed the stitching at the waist and ankle hem didn't give at all, rendering them nonstretchable. In fact, as I was pushing my high-instep size 10 foot through the hem, the fabric wanted to give enough but the hem stitching didn't as it should. Wouldn't be able to put on with socks. I think the lack of stretch will work in my favor around the waist -- they shouldn't slide down. Despite the faulty stitching, I always love black velvet jeans and these are no exception!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stretch out easily I have worn these twice and they have gotten really stretched out. I would recommend sizing down. Also not as black as I would have liked. (I have these jeans in 3 other washes/finishes and love them, these are the first ones I have been disappointed in)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Definitely a miss First off, maybe I had the wrong impression of what the word "velvet" meant, but these feel like corduroy without the ridges and not like velvet the way I was expecting. These are also HUGE. I'm 5'6", 130 lbs and always a 27 with Madewell jeans, but these were gigantic and so, so unflattering. I definitely recommend sizing down. The material catches so much dust and lint, which is tough when wearing black pants. Personally, I'll stick with regular denim from Madewell after this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor fit and not cute These have a different fit than the denim madewell 9" skinnies. I have another pair of the madewell 9" skinny jeans in a distressed light wash and I love them! I also have two of the 10" high waist jeans from madewell and love those too. I'm always a 28 in madewell stuff. I'm 5'7. 140 lbs. and I ordered my regular 28 in these. The fit was just awkward and uncomfortable. The velvet is also more of a faded black than a true deep black that you see in the pictures. I was really disappointed in these. Returned them. I'd recommend getting some of the denim jeans from madewell you'll be much happier.
