Product Details
With its waist-accentuating high rise and tapered legs, our vintage-inspired summer style is here to stay (call 'em "mom jeans"...if your mom was a '90s supermodel). Washed down for a supersoft finish, this 100% cotton pair will feel tight at first, but break in perfectly after a couple of wears.  
  • We recommend getting these in your usual size—they'll feel tight at first but stretch out juuuuuuust enough after a couple of wears.
  • Front rise: 11"; inseam: 28"; leg opening for size 25: 12 3/4".
  • Sits above hip, fitted through hip and thigh, with a slim leg.
  • Premium 100% cotton denim from Italy's renowned Candiani mill.
  • Machine wash.
  • Import.
  • 5'4" and below? Try our short inseam; 5'9"-5'11"? Choose Tall.
  • Monogramming available for US customers: To have this item embroidered with up to nine letters for $10 (free for Madewell Insiders), please call 866 544 1937.

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash

The Perfect Summer Jean in Fitzgerald Wash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 386.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually perfect If you buy true to size, these fit SUPER tight when you first put them on & you can't sit down or put your shoes on. But, like the description says, after a few wears they stretch out to the perfect fit. If you wash your jeans often, I'd consider going up a size. If you wash pretty infrequently, true to size is a good bet. No boy jean has ever looked flattering on me, these are magic and/or witchcraft. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all body types I’m petite with a slender, straight-body type (like no hips whatsoever) and I’ve had a hard time finding high waist, mom-style jeans that don’t make me look like a straight up little boy. These are perfect! They go in at the waist and help create a little bit of shape in the hips. They also perk up the booty a bit, so no flat pancake butt! I read a lot of reviews from curvy girls that loved these, so I wanted to let the straight body types know that they work for us too! I did size down in these.. I don’t own any other Madewell jeans except overalls, but I got a 24 regular (roll them up) and wear a 25 in most all other brands. For ref I’m 5’4 110 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from truly the perfect jean I bought these jeans in the fall after looking for a pair of vintage-y, light denim, and after having success with madewell jeans in the past. These have blown me away - they are honestly the ONLY jean I wear anymore. The cut is so flattering, they are so comfortable for hours on end even without much stretch, and they go with every item in my closet. They do tend to stretch easily on wear, but they spring back if put through the wash. I wish I could go more wears without washing though! They have become the pinnacle of my style and are the only jean that can convince me to not wear leggings for a day. I would recommend these to everyone! I am 5'3", 110ish lbs, and got the 24 regular - when I tried on the 23 they felt really tight, but knowing these loosen up I considered that they might have fit better and not become so loose. However, since there is no stretch in the leg, I think the 24 is the better size for me so I can move around more freely. I hope madewell keeps these forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, A Pair of Flattering Non-Skinny Jeans! I've been eyeing these jeans for a while now, however due to the past experience with the (unflattering) mom jeans, I hesitated... Spring really brought me around towards lighter washes, and I placed the order with the "wth, there's no harm in trying" mentality. FYI, I'm 122lbs, 32-26-36, 5'7, and usually a 25 in Madewell jeans (26 with most other brands). I ordered the perfect summer jeans in 25 regular, as Madewell's jeans sizing has been really consistent for me. When I first pulled them out of the package, it was a wee bit challenging for me to pull these over my butt, and kinda difficult to zip up as well. I walked and sit around in them, they started to fit really well (there is a little gap between my back and the band when I sit, which is expected)! Hubby said they make my butt look unreal, like a barbie or something, lol... Leg-wise, these are more like loose fitting jeans for me. Totally recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never taking them off I am 5'4" 125 ish natural waist 27 and hips 37 ish .. so I ordered the 27's and 28's. Tried the 28's on first and immediately took them off -- too big, I know how these jeans stretch over time and it would be a mistake. 27's fit like a glove, like I've been wearing them already for a year, not tight at all, very flattering, really so great. In fact could be just a smidge tighter. There's looseness in the waist too, I could fit my hand, two hands maybe three hands between the waistband and the back of my waist, but honestly you can't even tell . I'm over here debating whether to get the 26's or allow the 27's to go through the dry cycle to cinch up. I’m so smitten I’ll probably stick with the 27’s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confidence booster I love dressing unusually but have always had a hard time showing my different sense of style in jeans. These jeans have been the pair that have helped me transition from exclusively wearing skinny jeans to wearing something that shows off my figure in a new and creative way. It might sound sappy, but these jeans are slightly unusual (at least for me) and help me to communicate better to others my confidence in myself and in my own differences. Beautifully thick material, extremely happy, springy wash. Perfection

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best non-stretch jeans I can't even count how many pairs of non-stretch jeans I've tried on since the "Mom jean" came back in style, but they are just never comfortable. Until now! No scratchy, rigid denim here. These jeans are soft and comfy when you first put them on and get even better as you wear them and they stretch out a bit. I ordered my usual size 30 and they fit perfectly, no cutting into my waist at all like other non-stretch jeans do. They are just loose enough through the leg for a cute vintage look, and they do magical things to your butt. My rear is far from tiny, but it looks so tight and perky in these bad boys! I'm 5'10" but I actually preferred the regular length to the tall because I wanted them to hit above my ankle and I don't plan on cuffing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you sales lady in Seattle! I just wanted to thank the gal in downtown Seattle for helping me find the right fit. I struggled with the fit of these for so long. I am a 25 and ended up sizing down to a 23 thanks to the awesome sales lady's advice. In my head I'm thinking, "No!!! Too small, too small!!!" She kept saying to me "in these jeans size is just a number attached to the jean". She was so right! I did have to really squeeze into the jean but she told me that they would stretch out to be looser over time and fit like the most perfect jeans. I was scared at first and very hesitant. She was tiny like me and said she did the exact same thing and it worked out perfectly for her! Initially purchased these jeans in a 24 and they were so very bad on me so I gave them to my step daughter because she is a little bigger than me. This is my second time buying these. I love them so much now. I am 5'4" and 113 pounds for reference. Very flattering and very nice quality and perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found the perfect 100% cotton jeans I have had my eyes on these jeans for a long time now and I am soooo happy that I finally bought them. I’m 5’9”, around 128 pounds, and a size 25 fit perfectly! The waist was a tad too big but the rest of it fits great. And so so comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're even thinking about purchasing, just do it I have been eyeing these jeans for well over a year, and I finally caved and bought them. I say this with every new pair of denim I purchase from Madewell, but these really are my favorite jeans. So comfy, the perfect color and fit, and they look great dressed up or dressed down. And it doesn't hurt that they make the booty look good. These are the perfect modern take on the mom jean. I cannot recommend enough. For reference, I am 5'4" 125 pounds, and I bought my normal size 25 in these. They are tight at first just like any new pair of jeans, but after a few hours of wear, they start to form to your body and fit like a glove. So stop thinking about buying them and just do the dang thing already!
