Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love these jeans - they are comfortable and a great fit. I highly recommend them but prepare to size down as they do run larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great black jeans! I have not actually worn the jeans yet, but they are VERY comfortable... I love the high rise, stretch fabric, and solid black color. I agree with other reviews, the length is quite long.... I will have to get them shortened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In the store I tried on and purchased the high rise jeans in Madewell. Then I came home and read the reviews. I did size down, as other reviewers mentioned. If I had read the mixed reviews, prior to shopping, I doubt I would have given them a chance. So, when the helpful salesperson suggested these skinny jeans, I headed for the dressing room. This is a great style, with lighter, and softer fabric. A slightly faded wash that made them feel like a friend immediately. Slides now and booties as weather cools. Great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and comfy! I usually wear a 29 but would probably fit better in a 28 for these specifically. Overall, these are great jeans and lightweight enough for trainsitioning to Fall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Denim is too thin/stretchy I was really excited when I first ordered these, since they have 4% more denim than the Hayes wash, and I really liked the thickness of the latter jean. These jeans feel a lot thinner, and are a lot stretchier. I don't think I could get a year of wear out of these before the denim starts to fall apart. If you're more into jeans that feel like yoga pants, these are for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad quality, great style These jeans look really great. I love the style and the unfinished drop hem. However, the quality is not worth the price. The seams are off to the point that the outer seam awkwardly turns to the front of the leg constantly. It's annoying. And they are super stretchy, which I like, but these get loose to the point that they are unflattering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love I wanted to love these as I've been looking for this exact style, cut, color, and ankle detail. Unfortunately there are some major hurdles to get over. First, these run VERY big. I've recently converted to buying all of my jeans at Madewell and typically have to size down one size (not bad for the ego). With these I had to go down two sizes. Luckily I was in the store so online ordering wasn't an issue. These are very stretchy, as are many other styles, but these stretch out in the wrong places. The waist will stay tight but the legs will get loose and less form-fitting after one day of wear. Also, the vertical seams on both the inside and outside of the legs are off. The outside seams run into the front of your legs pretty aggressively, which I'm constantly trying to correct. Love the idea of these and trying to make them work, but disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too stretchy, odd fit I am typically a 29 in stretchy denim, and I sized down to a 28. Trying them on again at home, I decided they were too baggy in the crotch area and wanted to try a 27. The 27 did not resolve this issue. You know theres something wrong with the fit of these jeans when you can keep sizing down and they still fit the same as previous pairs.
