The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 197.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jeans The name says itself. These jeans are perfect. A lighter weight fabric - great for summer. Nice color. No rips. The best comfortable rise for me. I'm 5'4", pear shaped, waist is 26", hips are 37". I got size 26 and they fit just right. After two wearings they didn't stretch much. Thinking about ordering one more pair. Please make them in darker shades without rips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appropriately named! I feel like the Madewell fairy peered into my dreams and created these jeans. I am usually a 27, and after reading other reviews I was a bit conflicted on what size to order. Ended up ordering my usual 27 and they fit like a dream - for reference, I am 5' 7", 135lbs and shaped like a guitar :) My hip-to-waist ratio usually makes it difficult to find jeans that fit well, but these are, as the name implies, perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit but it takes time when i first put these on they made my bum look SO flat. It's non stretch, so I walked around the house for about 20 minutes to see if the fit changed and i am glad i did. the denim relaxes and now the fit is absolutely perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jeans I've owned! I have loved the pairs of madewell jeans I've purchased before, but these have been my favorites, by far. They're a stiffer denim, so the fit feels sturdy, but like a good pair that's ready to be worn in. Felt thick enough for fall/winter as well. I'm also 5'2", so sometimes high waisted tend to look like they're almost to my shoulders; These hit perfectly, and weren't too tight in the leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, indeed I'm typically a 25 or 26 in denim, but I purchased these in a 27. These do not have spandex in them and I needed a little more room. The 26 fit, but I was nervous about what would happen if I ate a burrito in them (and let's be honest, we NEED to consider these things). In any case, why are we even putting spandex in denim? These are so perfect! They are soft and also sturdy; the wash is light and summery, my butt is lookin' A+. What more can I say?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly amazing I kept getting random ads for these jeans and promotional e-mails. Madewell jeans don't normally fit me very well but when I finally ordered and received these, i was SO pleasantly surprised. They are perfect!!! I'm 5'10 140lb and ordered a size 28 and the size and length are great. Soft, comfortable denim. Not a lot of stretch but not too restrictive either. Perfect with sneakers or sandals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are fantastic! I read the reviews before I bought these and it was a bit of a crapshoot as to which way to go. Some people were saying they were snug, but then other people were saying they were a bit roomy. I bought my normal waist (27) and I have to admit that it was a bit of a struggle to get them on (the amount of pizza I've eaten in the past month definitely was taunting me). I almost returned them to size up, but once I got them on and wore them for about an hour, they stretched just enough. I'm hooked. They're snug in fit but not uncomfortable. They have a perfect vintage look, and the wash is exquisite -- just right for spring and summer. They're the kind of jeans that hip, cool girls wear -- subtly sexy and effortlessly stylish. So, in short, if you're reading this, you should buy them because I'm sure that's you. I'm over here pretending that's me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Now The Person With Multiple Pairs of the Same Jeans I swore I'd never be one. But here I am! The rise is sky-high, the wash is the perfect sun-bleached color, the 100% cotton fabric content is soft and breathable in the warm Texas spring. I took a pair of scissors to the ankles of one of my pairs to give it that raw edge/cropped look and they are SO. PERFECT. I wore them to a music festival and got so many compliments on them. This is the only pair of jeans I've ever found that give that "relaxed" look without looking sloppy on my short, stumpy legs. I got my usual size 26 (I'm 5'4 and 120 lbs). A few things to keep in mind: since they are 100% cotton, they have no stretch, which means you'll definitely need to shimmy when you're pulling them over your hips. This gets easier with time though, since the cotton stretches out over the course of a few wears (but snaps right back to the original shape when washed). And one of the perks of the no-stretch fabric is that the zipper area doesn't get all bunchy or bow outwards. BUY THEM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My FAVORITE jeans. I LOVE these jeans so much. I debated on getting them for months, due to the steep cost, but I am so glad I did - they are worth every penny. I am 5'8", 117 lbs, no booty whatsoever, tall and slim. I am a 24/25 in most jeans and the 24 fits perfect. They sit perfectly above my hip bones and the crotch area is perfectly loose so that they are comfy to lounge in. They can be dressed up easily with the bottoms rolled and some heels, very effortlessly chic. The material is VERY high quality denim, which I love, and I already know that these are going to last me forever - good thing since I have worn them most every day since purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Girlfriend Jean I love these jeans to pieces! I'm a short girl (5'1") with muscular calves, so I can never find girlfriend/boyfriend jeans that end up fitting like they're intended to. These still give me room in the legs and the wash is perfect for the spring/summer. If it wasn't noticeable I'd probably wear these everyday. The waist runs a tad tight, but doesn't bug me unless I eat a giant meal.
