Product Details
Lean and sexy, this one's legs-for-days look comes from using best-of-the-best denim (in this case, straight from Japan). Plus, the 9" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet (and, a touch of added stretch ensures you're still totally comfortable). Go ahead and tuck in your shirt—you've got nothing to hide in these jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and comfortable! these jeans are so incredibly flattering! The elastic, "slimming pocket," is actually amazing and makes me look AND feel pulled in and comfortable. I am 5'7" and 145 lbs, the 26 (which is my normal madewell jean size) fits like a glove, and held its shape all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall Jean Love this pair of jeans! Great skinny jean for fall. Looks wonderful in high boots or with a bootie! The fiber content of this particular pair is my favorite, just a little bit of stretch but still feels like denim. Great distresssing without actual holes in the material. Wish they had more washes so I could get them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! These jeans look amazing on. They hold you in without being uncomfortable. I have been purchasing madewell jeans for 3 years now and the quality is excellent. These are definitely my favorite pair of distressed jeans. The color is beautiful. Perfect for a fall weekend. For reference, I am 5'4" and 137 lbs and a 27 fit perfect. I am normally a 27-28 in Madwell denim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the wash & distressing! I saw these online and loved them, so when I was at Madewell over the weekend I tried them on & had to have them. The wash is a perfect darker blue and the distressing is amazing! I personally love the back pocket, it's not actually a hole it's distressing to look like a hole with denim layered behind it. I also love that their are no rips in the knee & they are nice and thick like most of my other Madewell jeans. I got the size 24 (5' 110lbs) and they fit great! Overall 10/10 would definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I got these because I was looking for a pair of distressed skinnies and I always love Madewell's high rise skinnies. I don't mind the pocket hole or whiskering since I did want distressed. The whiskering is more than color though, the fabric is almost pleated or rippled to make the effect more noticeable. The only issue I've had is that the crotch is just a bit too long. I usually don't have this problem with Madewell high rise jeans. They're usually good about having the rise start at a normal place on your body and then continue upwards but I noticed a few times some bunching of fabric when I sat. I also wish they were just a touch shorter. These come all the way down to my ankle and the other ones I have are a touch shorter so if I wear low ankle booties there is a little bit of skin in-between the bottom of the jeans and the boot. For reference, I am 5'7 and aout 150#. Athletic type body so the jeans are always a touch tighter on my thighs and butt and looser in the waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good pair of jeans with some flaws When I first tried these on, the cut was spot-on compared to my other Madewell skinnies, and very flattering. I love it when jeans fit consistently across a brand. However, these really stretch out throughout the day, to the point where I am constantly pulling them up and the butt material sags a little bit. I'm not sure if sizing down would help, because they are very tight to begin with and after washing. I am 5'4, 107 lbs. and normally wear a 25. The denim material is thick and obviously high quality, and I like that the distressed details are not overwhelming. I dislike it when pre-cut holes are so large that they turn into giant rips after a few washes. These will not do that. There is a very strange, large "hole" in the middle of the back pocket (it's lined), which means these can't really be dressed up.
