8" Skinny Jeans in Black Frost

8" Skinny Jeans in Black Frost is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love these jeans! This is my first Madewell jean experience and I highly recommend them. I'm a size 8 and 5'4" with a curvy, athletic build. These jeans cover my hips and button just under my belly button, but I don't consider them high-waisted, they just fit properly; unlike the muffin top, low-rise jeans that only seem available these days! They are super comfortable, easy to move in, and fit like the best skinny, skinny jean that they are, buy these now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do Not Last Long I've come to expect better from Madewell. I bought these jeans about 6 months ago and they ripped today! When I wash my jeans, I always am sure to turn them inside out and NEVER dry them. That has always made black jeans last for me. After the first wash, they developed gray streaks in unattractive places, which was the first strike for me. Now, after only 6 months, they ripped on the leg! For the price, I expected these jeans to last much longer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wonderful jeans.. but ripped after 6 months I'm so relieved to see that I'm not the only one. I love these jeans and wore them all of the time.. However, after about 4 months, they ripped in the inner thigh. They weren't too small (actually a size bigger than I usually wear in madewell jeans) and I only washed them as directed. Great jeans, but really disappointed that they only lasted a few months..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I LOVED them, but they fell apart in 90 days!! Ohhh, Madewell. My heart is broken! I thought I'd FINALLY found the perfect jeans!! They fit me like they were cut specifically for my body, & although I was scared to buy the most expensive pair of jeans of my life, I decided it would be a good investment, & as soon as I wore them for the first time I felt certain I'd made the right decision. But then in less than a month and a half, they split open all the way across the back of my thigh! I'd call myself an average wearer: I wore them 2-3 days out of the week & washed them about every two weeks. I've never bought such an expensive pair of jeans - by a long shot - & I've never had a pair of jeans fall apart on me so quickly - also by a very long shot. I am so, so, so, so, so disappointed. I've gone ahead and ordered a second pair, but I'll be saving them only for special occasions like dinners with friends' parents when I need to dress well but not dress up. They fit me so well that I couldn't resist, but I sure do feel foolish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have owned three pairs of these jeans- two in this exact wash and rise and one in a higher rise with the same wash. All three pairs fit beautifully to begin with. These are by far the best-fitting jeans I have ever purchased, and I expected them to be of the same good, sturdy quality as all the other Madewell clothing I own. However, that is not the case. All three pairs have ripped in the thigh area after less than 6 months of wear. I am especially disappointed in the last pair, which took less than 45 days to rip, after enduring only one trip to the dry cleaners (as is suggested) and no machine washes. I thought the ripping might be due to machine washing (I never dried them), but it seems as though it's simply the nature of the pants. I LOVE the style and fit of these jeans, but I cannot keep purchasing jeans that fall apart after only a couple wears. Very disappointed, especially since I don't have this issue with my regular wash Madewell jeans!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not again My fav jeans! I would give them 5 stars if the 3 pairs that I own didn't all rip in the crotch area. My latest pair I got back in January, thats only few months ago and there is already a tear in the crotch. I own few other jeans from madewell and they do not have the same issue. My first few pairs had fading problems, but I learned how to deal with that and get the jeans dry cleaned. But I do not know how to fix the constant ripping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from rips too easily! I love, love, love these pants, but here I sit at work, and the inner thigh has ripped yet again on these pants. The first time, after only having them for a month, and wearing them only occasionally, they completely ripped on both thighs. I exchanged for a new pair just three weeks ago, and here I sit with two more thigh rips. I'm hoping to patch this time, but this is craziness! My thighs touch slightly, but the size is definitely right and they're incredibly comfortable. Madewell is a little to far from me to have to go back to the store to exchange every month... Get your black jeans elsewhere, or reinforce before wearing! Not well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit, poor quality Great fit, as with the other skinny skinnies from Madewell, and easy to dress up or down. I took on board the other reviewers' warnings about the black dye fading, so I had them dry cleaned. Unfortunately after a year the fabric ripped in several places in the crotch / seat area (not along a seam, the actual material tore). This is really, really poor quality - I've never had a pair of jeans rip like that before, even after several years' constant wearing & machine washing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit, but they tear These were my absolute favorite pair of pants for the first 6 months until they randomly and catastrophically ripped in the crotch. I've had multiple pairs of Madewell jeans over the years and have never had a pair tear like these (they normally last me multiple years of constant wearing). I'm mourning their loss because they were extremely flattering and comfortable.
