9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Ripped and Patched Edition

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Ripped and Patched Edition is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A jean hug If you have had babies, this is the best jean out there! They have enough stretch where they don't cut in to you but they compress and hold in the "mommy pooch". I am 5'3 125 lbs and bought the 27's. The length is perfect on me and I don't have to roll them up at all. The pockets actually hit my butt giving it an illusion of a lifted look. I can wear them all day and they don't stretch out and get saggy at all. Well worth the money! I already bought a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE JEANS These are my first pair of madewell jeans and I LOVEEE them. I am 6'0 and have always had a hard time finding jeans that are long enough AND are flattering. As soon as I put them on, they felt and looked great! I bought these and another pair in Taller and they're the perfect length. Not only do these jeans work so well for me, but I feel more confident and stylish in these jeans than I have in any jeans in a very long time. Very pleased!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jean My new favorite jeans! I was unsure about the high rise but the 9" is the perfect rise to ensure they don't show anything when you sit down. Ive worn these for probably 4 days in a row and they haven't stretched out, nor has the knee hole ripped further. I'm 5'8" and I got the regular length (I probably could've gone for the tall) but I like that I can wear them with booties and not have to roll them. Looking forward to wearing them with sandals in the spring. Now, what black ones to buy...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! These are my new go to jeans! They have less stretch than my other Madewell jeans, and while I'm usually between a 26 and 27, I stuck with the 27 and they're pefect (125lbs, 5'2"). With being on the shorter side, these are a perfect length and appear to be almost cropped compared to my others. My only complaint, is yes like the other reviewer my patch is ripping. I knew this would happen since being on the petite side the hole fits perfectly on top of my knee. Taller gals will probably not have this problem since it'll most likely sit above your knee and avoid being stretched out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cool jeans! I have a couple pairs of Madewell denim, and these are by far my favorite. The style is really cool. They feel very sturdy and well made, and I'm not worried about the knee hole getting bigger or ripping more. They have a little less stretch then some of the other pairs I tried on in the store, and I actually like that because I feel like they will stretch out less as you wear them. I'm 5'2", 112lb and I got size 24. I was in between 24 and 25 and the store clerk recommended the 24 because she said you want them to be a little snug when you buy them. Past two pairs I bought fit "perfect" and they both stretch out too much for my liking. So if you are in between sizes I would recommend sizing down. Overall, love these jeans and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Jeans These are the best jeans that I have ever worn, and the first pair of Madewell jeans that I bought. I wanted a pair for ages and finally bought these and fell in love. They fit perfectly, the regular is a great length, and go with any outfit that I put them in. I'm 5'3", 152 lbs, 28/29 waist and 36 hips, and I bought the 28 which fits great. I've had them for 8 months and they haven't stretched out or anything. I own a couple pairs of Madewell jeans now and love them all, highly recommend buying Madewell denim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patch Fixed! I got these pants and love them! As a few reviewers have said, the knee patch comes undone. It was really sad and annoying. I was able to take them into the store and have them send to the tailor to be repaired. They did a great job and now are my favorite pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worn-In with subtle details - overall, great jeans! I love these jeans. There's a lot of subtle detailing that really makes these jeans stand out. The ever-so-slightly distressed edges, the tiny rips and tears around the jeans (just thread fraying, no actual holes), and the gorgeous worn-in denim look makes these jeans my favorite. Throw on a tee and you're set for the day! The knee rip is a little higher than my knee, but it's not a problem. I've had no issues yet with the other "repaired" rip. TL;DR love these jeans :)
