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 33.
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 4 out of 5 by from TALL GIRLS READ These jeans are awesome! I'm in love with the wash, and they feel so good! Gotta be careful with The rips, but if you're scared of that then don't buy ripped jeans. However, I'm 5'11 and I got them in Tall and they are not as long as we long legged ladies would like. They stop right above the ankle, which works for a nice vintage feel, but not if my ankles want to be covered like regular length jeans are supposed to do. Even "taller" is only a 32" inseam and I personally need a 33-33.5. Overall I love them! Didn't return because they fit great everywhere else, especially my butt!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from new favorites despite patch ripping off these have quickly become my new favorite pair of jeans. they fit great and definitely have less stretch than other madewell jeans I have but I prefer this fit (27- 150 lbs. 5'9"). my patch started ripping off so I ended up just cutting it completely out (I didn't like how it looked half torn off) and they look really great still. overall, I'm super happy with these jeans but just beware that your patch has a good chance of ripping off

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Knee Patch Poorly Attached These jeans are adorable and look amazing the first time you try them on. However, if you plan on doing any bending of your knee, the patch will quickly deteriorate. After wearing them a total of 3 times, the stitching on the side of the patch fell out and it now hangs awkwardly off my knee and looks quite ragged and gross. Disappointed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Patch ripping off I have only worn these jeans a few times. I follow all care instructions meticulously. Yet, the patch on the knee is ripping off. It is not due to the fact that I'm too big for these jeans—I'm not. I'm pretty small; 5'5" and 112 lbs. This is very unfortunate, as these jeans are not cheap, and I expected better quality from a company that calls itself "Madewell." Disappointed.

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.
