8" Skinny Jeans in Riverdale Wash

8" Skinny Jeans in Riverdale Wash is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect jeans Please make these in more rinses -- they're the perfect skinny jeans. Snug denim that keeps its shape, slim through the ankle, very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Jeans! I love love love these jeans! These are real denim. You put them on and they hold their shape throughout not only one day but a few! The color is great and the size fits true. If you like a denim that feels like denim and doesn't stretch you'll love these!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unicorn Skinny Jeans I always have a problem with jeans lasting me the entire day and looking good after leaving the office. Let me tell you that these jeans do not bag out at the knees or have a saggy butt after sitting at a desk all day. They have lasted me through long travel days in trains and cars on the weekends and days in the office without needing to be washed to return to their form. It truly is a miracle! Love them! The color is a bit lighter than in the photos, but still a classic blue jean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but could be Great I wear these all the time. I like the heavier denim because it does not bag. I'm 5'7" and chose to go with the taller size (I like my denim longer). The regular probably would have hit me just above my ankle. The only thing that could have made these perfect would be a higher rise option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Rise...... Woo Hoo!!!..... FINALLY a pair of jeans from Madewell that this 5'1 short -waisted lady can wear!!! Seriously though, I REALLY wish Madewell would consider doing their denim in petite offerings as well as regular. The rise on these are PERFECT at 8 inches. Still sits below the navel, and no plumbers butt. I'm SO tired of everything HIGH RISE THIS/THAT..... not everyone can or wants to wear high rise pants, ESPECIALLY some of us under 5'4. The denim for these are great.... not super thick, so year round wear will be a breeze. Also, I LOVE the fact that the front pockets are shallow, so nothing bunching up at the thigh. MANY times I've had front pockets tailored or sewn shut completely....... the only things that I'd change would be to offer these beauties with a more straight leg( in addition to the super skinny) and to offer an inseam option for petites, say about 25-26...... other than those two little changes..... these jeans are perfection.......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jeans Love the jeans. They may be the wrong fit for me because they seem to sag a little bit throughout the course of the day. They feel like they aren't as snug on my waist as I'd like.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lower Rise, Heavier Denim I had ordered several pairs of jeans, and this was one pair I chose to send back. I much prefer the 9" rise to the 8" rise. If you're looking for something that is slightly lower-rise and has a heavier denim feel, this is probably right for you. If you want something that has a closer fit through the legs, is a bit stretchier with slimmer ankle openings, I would go with a different pair (specifically the 9" in Polly, which is a similar-ish wash to the Riverdale).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So baggy at the knees I was so excited for these jeans- I hate wearing super high-rise jeans and I was glad to find these in an 8" rise. They fit perfectly at the waist but are SO baggy at the knees. My favorite pair of jeans were Madewell "Skinny Skinny" jeans from 2010 (which I wore until they literally ripped apart), but the cut of these is nothing like that great old pair, even though they are supposedly the same style. Super disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different from other 8" Skinny Jeans The last time I bought the 8" Skinny Jeans, they only offered them in the Quincy Wash, which fits me perfectly and hits my ankles at the perfect spot. Since these were also called the 8" Skinny Jeans, I figured they should fit exactly the same, so I didn't even try them on when I purchased them. Unfortunately the fit is very different! The only thing that I would say is the same between the two is the sizing - I sized up in the Quincy, and I did in these, and they fit fine overall. However, they've got a lot more stretch than the other pair, so while I haven't worn them for more than 5 minutes at home, I feel like they could potentially stretch in the waist. They are also a lot more skinny at the ankles, and hit past my ankles, which wasn't the look I wanted at all because they look like I'm wearing jeggings. Maybe it's my bad for comparing them to the other so heavily, but why be the same style and not fit the same? Color is a little lighter than the picture, but still cute.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange cut I'm normally a 27, and I got the 27 in these jeans. Technically, they fit- length, waist, etc. However, what I quickly discovered is that however these jeans are cut, they were creating strange, big wrinkles and folds in the fabric in really unflattering places on my butt and thighs, and nothing I did got rid of them: belts, heels, etc. I'm returning them because I won't something that makes me look like I have weird panty lines on my thighs and butt. Overall, was pretty disappointed.
