The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 230.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these in two sizes; wear them both A LOT! I am normally a 24 and I bought both a 24 and a 23. I wear the larger one on days where I plan to eat a lot (most days, haha); and 23 more for "going out" with a slimmer fit. They do stretch out a bit so I wash them after just about every wear — the 23 probably can be worn 2-3x before they need to be put in the dryer. I'm 5'4" and weigh about 112 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jean! I love these jeans. They fit perfectly. When I first put them on I thought they were too tight, but after about an hour they loosened and fit perfectly. I have worn them 3 times since and still fit. I hope they will make these jeans in a darker wash so I can have a perfect fall/winter jean :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing fit As a person with larger hips and rear I was expecting these to look too tight in all the wrong places but I was pleasantly surprised to discover they were incredibly flattering! I have been looking for the right straight leg jeans and these are it. Now all I need is these in a darker wash. For reference, I am 125lbs and 5'6" and I ordered a 27.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stupid me.. :( 5'2", 127lbs, bought 27 :( Should've bought 26. since i live in overseas, it's pretty difficult to exchange them so might buy another pair of 26. but the color and the style? FABULOUS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick denim; great wash for summer; length is good for short gals. LOVED these jeans. I have a long torso and they fit perfectly on my waist. Not too snug in the crotch and does not ride up or give a front wedgie. That often happens to me with high waisted jeans as my torso is just too long. The jeans are no stretch, so the run slightly snug compared to other Madewell jeans with stretch. I am 5/2" 140 lbs., usually a 28" in Madewell and got a 28" in these as well. Snug, but you want them to be when you buy them as they will stretch out in time when the denim threads loosens a bit. Length is directly at my foot, where it curves when I roll them down, however, I think the style is to have this jean a little cropped, so they are a little long for shorter gals who want the same look as the model. I rolled mine up 3x and it was good to go. Cuff was a little thick, but I was still able to pull the look off. Great summer color. For those that like high waisted jeans and want a nice light colored denim for the summer...these are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Break in time but so worth it I love these jeans. I ordered these online in a 27 and a 26, because I wasn't sure about the fit. I saw them in store and tried them on, and talked to the manger and she said there is a break in time, just like with raw denim, which will lead to a nicer fit, and she advised me to get them smaller than would be comfortable. Great decision, they look fantastic and I have had several complements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans, but: please make w/ longer inseam! These have become my favorite jeans ever, even though I had to try them on on a few different occasions before actually committing. I'm 5'7" and ALMOST didn't get these because they are quite short. I get that ankle-length is in, but for a lot of women these are more reasonably called capris (decidedly less hip). Given their popularity, I would think you could safely make these with longer inseam options and still sell out. I didn't think I would like 100% cotton jeans, but as other reviewers noted, they stretch just enough to mold to you and then stay put. Amazing! i also love the 11" rise. I get compliments on these all the time. I really want to buy a second pair of the Perfect Summer Jean, but I don't want distressing so I'm currently out of luck. Madewell: produce these in longer lengths and in darker washes, and you've got a new staple jean that people are going to keep scooping up. :)

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.
