8" Skinny Jeans in Sunnyside Wash: Knee-Rip Edition

8" Skinny Jeans in Sunnyside Wash: Knee-Rip Edition is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've finally found my forever jean. I bought these a year ago and wore them so often that I completely wore them out. They are the best fitting, most comfortable pair of jeans I have ever owned. I don't understand how they do it, but my butt has never looked better. They are very flattering. I plan on buying these again and again. Thanks Madewell!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fit I love these jeans! I'd never bought or tried on Madewell garments before so took a chance on this jean. I was so happy when I tried them on - of course, as I'm a little taller, these are a bit shorter than I would like but I'm keeping them anyway because there are no Tall or Taller in my size. I would buy these in different washes - with and without the ripped at knees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans! I've been looking for a pair of ripped/distressed jeans for awhile and didn't want some with huge holes in the thighs, and these are perfect! They are so comfortable, have just the right amount of stretch, don't loose their shape and wash really well. I wish they were a tad bit longer for being ankle length (I'm 5' 7") but I won't complain. Every time I go to pull a pair of jeans out of the closet I keep reaching for these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable jean I own! Stretchy, love the cut knees and the fringed bottom. My go to jean for the spring/summer of this year. Madewell scores again! Couldn't recommend this jean more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite pair of ripped jeans I've been looking for a pair of ripped jeans with holes at the knees (I don't like the ones with holes around the thighs). These jeans fit what I wanted perfectly. Also, the holes aren't ridiculously big. In real life, the color of the jeans are darker and even though I wanted a lighter pair of jeans, I actually ended up liking the color a lot. I feel like this slightly darker shade of blue is more flattering for the body. I sized up from my usual 27 to a 28 and it was still form-fitting but legs weren't so compressed like in my other Madewell jeans. I love Madewell jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of ripped knee jeans! These are very comfortable and stretchy! I sized down from my usual 26 in Skinny Skinny jeans to a 25 for a better fit. The wash is great for spring and summer, and the knee rips aren't "too much". I am 5'1" and the raw hem is great for me to snip a little extra material off so they can hit me above my ankle. These will be getting a lot of use. Like all ripped knee jeans, you just need to be extra careful putting them on so you don't accidentally rip the hole larger. Can't wait to wear them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great weekend comfy jean I have many pairs of Madewell jeans and I prefer the 9" high waist ones over these just because I like the high wasted look better but these are still 8" which is probably considered mid-rise. They are very comfortable, lots of stretch and I'm a sucker for ripped knees. I also had these embroidered with my husband's nickname on the pocket in red stitching and I love it. Makes them a little different and customer. When I called to ask for the customization they said it could take 2 weeks which I was intimidated by but I ended up getting them in 3-4 days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved these but their ankle length I loved everything about these jeans except the length. The denim is really nice and feel great on. The rise is perfect and they are really flattering on the butt. The color is much better in person too. These would have been my "perfect" denim if the they were full length. I'm only 5'6" but they were too short and more of an ankle length. I wish they came in tall to resolve that issue.
