Product Details
For our Perfect Vintage Collection, we dreamed up 100% cotton styles with an authentic old-school look (think: treasured flea market finds). These skinny jeans have a perfectly broken-in look thanks to artful destruction.
  • 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: 30 1/2"; leg opening for size 25: 11 1/4".
  • Sit above hip, fitted through hip and thigh, with a skinny leg.
  • Premium 100% cotton denim from Italy's Candiani mill.
  • Machine wash.
  • Import.
  • 5'4" and below? Try our short inseam; 5'9"-5'11"? Choose Tall; 6' and above? Get Taller.

Tall Rigid High-Rise Skinny Jeans

Tall Rigid Skinny Jeans is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jean These are hands down the greatest jeans ever. I love them. They hold everything in and are the perfect wash. I’m 5’8” 120lbs and got a 24. Fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy two. Buy three. Then buy more. I pre-ordered these and got them delivered today. Absolutely love love love. They truly look vintage, and somehow keep everything I love about skinnies (sleek, long look) and ditch everything I hate (no more stuffed sausage look). So perfect. Also the legs aren’t too legging-tight. Almost more of a straight leg. They’re right-order your normal Madewell size, they’re rigid but wearable immediately. Super high rise, too. Right on for spring. Can’t wait to wear these everyday with everything. I’m 5’10 and got my usual tall, will be ordering the taller too, so I can cuff them up nicely. Excellent. So so so excellent. Great price too. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worn them repeatedly since they arrived I am 5'11" with a slim build and ordered size 26 tall. I love these jeans. They combine style, comfort, and versatility. These jeans have the mom jean style but still look great on my slim build, which is hard to come by. I ordered my usual size at madewell (I am usually a skinny jeans wearer) and they fit great. They are rigid so they do not stretch like my previous madewell purchases. I am so pleased with this purchase and will be happy to purchase more jeans in this style in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL-AMERICAN FAVORITE These little beauties are a treasure. I've been SEARCHING for something perfectly medium blue with a skinny but not-too-skinny leg...the ideal list goes on. These are it! I originally ordered my regular MW size as I had gone with that for the perfect summer jeans - ha, could barely get them over my hips. Exchanged for one size up and they are exquisite!! They loosen comfortably when you wear them - but they are not stretchy. **Be careful with your toe to not snag on the distressed hole on thigh :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing modern skinnies Ordered this pair online, opened them up and immediately thought they were too big from how they looked unfolded. But they were not! They are true to size and fit great. They suck everything in just as desired! They do not stretch a lot so keep that in mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable and sturdy I bought these jeans about a week ago and have worn them almost every day since. They look great and feel like they're going to last a long time. I love that they retain their shape, even after many wears. If you're used to wearing jeans with a lot of stretch, it will take a bit of getting used to, and you won't be doing high kicks in these. I ordered one size larger than I typically wear, and I'm glad I did because of how stiff they are when seated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So disappointing Like other reviewers, I was so excited to receive these after they were backordered, but I ended up so disappointed. While the denim quality and wash is completely lovely, the fit is very strange. I ordered my normal size, but there was a pretty substantial waist gap. Despite the waist gap, the jeans were still fairly tight around my hips, and sitting down was super uncomfortable! The worst part for me was that the jeans aren't really "skinny," despite being named as such. There was a lot of excess fabric around the ankle area that made the jeans look puffy and bubble out; it was so unflattering! I wanted to love these, but they went back so fast. Hopefully Madewell goes with more 100% cotton options in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a miss I was so excited about these jeans! I pre-ordered and waited over a month to get them. They finally arrived and much to my dismay, I found they are at least two sizes too small, especially in the calf area, which is absurdly narrow. I was also expecting the denim to be, well, rigid, and found it to be flimsier than expected. Unfortunately, I have to return.
