Shrunken Jean Jacket

Shrunken Jean Jacket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall Jacket I have been looking for nearly a year for a denim jacket that fits well and looks great. When I ordered this one from Madewell, I thought I had found the right one, finally. When it arrived, I knew I was right! This jacket will be with me for a long time. It fits well, looks great, and is the perfect color denim for me to wear with most casual pieces in my wardrobe. Thank you, after a year--my search is finally over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great basic This jacket is a great basic that would be good in any wardrobe. I've had it a couple weeks and worn it many times already--the slightly shorter length (not cropped though) makes it perfect to wear with either dresses or loose tops and pants. The pockets are super handily placed as well. A little pricey at first glance but I find it's absolutely worth the money for the high quality and wearability!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice style. Nice fit. I'm really happy with the jacket. It has enough room in the sleeves so that you can roll them up and still move comfortably! The fabric and detailing are nice. Not stiff. Good shade of denim. Runs a bit large. I would definitely recommend this jacket at the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Jacket I love this denim jacket. I would wear it every day if I could. Looks great over dresses, or over a tanktop with pants. Love the shrunken fit. I don't feel like I get lost in it. Only issue is that after washing it it comes out pretty wrinkled and is pretty hard to iron. I end up using the steam button quite a bit. Would definitely recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! So happy I got this and perfect weight for New Orleans weather. I went a size up so I can layer underneath in cooler temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best jean jacket LOVE THIS JEAN JACKET! I have been looking for a jean jacket like this one for a very long time. I find that jean jackets are often too "shrunken" or too wide, but this one is perfect - not too tight, not too big, just right. The colour is great too! I am 5'1", 115 lbs and I am usually a size 2 or 4 and the small was perfect for me

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jean Jacket I really like the tailoring of this denim jacket. It does say "trim fit," and I ordered a S instead of my usual XS for fear that it would be tight in the shoulders, but it was a little bit large. I would recommend staying true to your regular Madewell size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not really "shrunken" Ok - love the pockets as they are different from other jean jacket pockets. Love the 'wash'. The blue is very pretty, not dingy or to dark - but a very pretty blue. However, for a jacket that's called "shrunken" it's not that. I expected a closer fit with more stretch. I got my normal size - M - and it's no different in fit than a million other jean jackets out there, other than being a little shorter. It's not a closer fit. shoulders and chest and waist are the same as my older levi jean jacket...Maybe they mean that the pockets and buttons were smaller/shrunken in size ?!?! Here's what would have been great: tighter fit, with a 'fitted' fit [followed curves instead of 'straight'] and have more stretch so even though it's tighter it would still fit and move with you...would have been great over tanks, with skirts and shorts...but it's not and I would return it if I could, but I got it on final sale. too bad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An okay jacket I am 5'6 and 130 lbs. I bought this jacket in a small. I love the cropped look, but I have a long torso and it was too short on me. Otherwise the jacket looked great. I gave it to my shorter sister, and it looked awesome on her. I ordered the medium hoping the length would be a little longer, but it was too big and boxy on me. Unfortunately, I have to send it back :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fitted jacket... with wide sleeves The quality is nice, but the sleeves are too wide. It didn't look good at all, since it is suppose to be a fitted jacket.
