The Perfect Fall Jean in Vance Wash

The Perfect Fall Jean in Vance Wash is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I was worried these would look absolutely awful on me, but I was so wrong! They have the tight fitting waist of the high-rise skinny skinny but the looser bottom of the slim boyjean. They're an excellent combination of the two jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So. Rad. I love these jeans. I LOVE THEM!!! I have a super long torso, so high-waisted jeans typically end up looking "normal" on me, and these actually look high-wasted. Plus, they are so comfortable! They have just a touch of stretch, which is the perfect amount of give when you sit down in a high-waisted pair. I also have the Perfect Summer Jean, and, while I love the wash, the 100% cotton fabric is less forgiving when I sit down. These have become my new favorite thing ever. For reference, I normally wear a size 26 in jeans and these are no exception. I am nearly 5'8" and weigh 125 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most perfect jeans These are my favorite pair of jeans I have. They are super comfortable, soft and I love the high rise. I wanted to buy another pair but it sold out in my size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They feel great Look, I was totally hesitant about buying high waisted jeans because I didn't want to look like my grandmother, but these jeans are great! I love them. They are the most comfortable pair of jeans I have, and they look cool and trendy. The stretch on them is perfect as well. I am 5'6', 160, and the definition of a pear shape. It is hard to find jeans to fit both my apple bottom and my little waste, but these do the trick to the point that I don't even have to wear a belt! Usually I am always cinching in at the waist. I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely gorgeous They fit like a dream and are super high quality. Just a tiny bit darker than the photos, but nothing too dramatic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I read a lot of the reviews before purchasing these jeans and couldn't keep my inner voice from saying "right they probably won't fit me". I have a really hard time finding pants that fit my waist and hips at the same time. Usually they fit one or the other but not both. So to say I'm pleased is an understatement . They are so comfortable and flattering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute enough to convert a skinny jeans devotee I tried these jeans on in store and liked them, but wasn't sure I would know how to style them. When I saw them on sale I knew I had to have them. Perfect high waisted jeans with a straight leg, these jeans look like the perfect vintage jeans while being brand new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect High-Waisted Jean for Fall! This is my 2nd Madewell pair of jeans (the 1st being the perfect summer jean in fitzgerald). Nice modern wash and the high waist sits just below my belly button. Fits more like a boyfriend jean on me so if you don't like that you may want to size down one size. Great alternative to skinny jeans. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't take them off! These truly are the perfect fall jean. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. They are so casually cool and flattering at the same time. I will have these forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect name for them. They literally are the perfect fall jean. They run long compared to most jeans so you either have to roll them up like in the pictures (so cute!) or get hemmed. Great jeans!
