8" Skinny Jeans in Ames Wash

8" Skinny Jeans in Ames Wash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I'm usually a 26 for Madewell jeans and this fit true to size. The fabric is thick and will get me through the cold weather. The color wash looks just like the picture shown with pleats on the hip/thigh area for a whiskering effect. I hope Madewell doesn't stop making high quality jeans and beautiful washes like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I absolutely love these jeans and the fact that Madewell offers this 8" version. I'm 5'8" and a bit and I think that the rise and length of these jeans is just perfect. I wear jeans constantly and am always on the hunt for the perfect pair and I think these may be it. The only thing is that I wish they offered a darker blue wash as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual jean These jeans are so cute and fit like a glove. I was a bit worried at first since they felt a bit tight, but don't worry - they'll stretch out to be true to size within an hour or two of wearing. Love the slightly lower waistline for a more casual look - definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jeans EVER!!! Truly the best jeans I've ever bought. They fit perfect and are so comfortable! They're soft and stretchy kind of like jeggings, but don't have that super tight jegging look. Even though they're a bit pricey, they're definitely worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans! Purchased these as a gift for my daughter and she loves them! The fabric is soft and the wash is beautiful. They fit beautifully and are flattering. Could not be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I would buy these again and other jeans from madewell. I'm short (5'3) and they are great! I love that there is a little stretch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stretchy! The Ames jeans definitely are stretchy as promised. All that stretch makes them comfortable to wear, though it also takes a little getting used to: at times I feel as if I'm wearing scuba gear, something more like neoprene and less like denim. I ordered a size 28 because I've recently gained some weight—I'm normally a 27—and the 28s may even be a little large (I'm 5'8", currently 142 lbs). Or maybe it's just the nature of the stretchy material. It helps if I wear a belt with them, but even so, I find I often need to pull them up a little, like tights. All that said, these jeans are still comfortable, a good length, a nice blue, and the whiskering on the front isn't *too* overdone. I'd recommend them, I just sort of wish I'd ordered my usual size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too stretchy, but good style I love the 8” skinnies, but much prefer them WITHOUT the stretch, like they were made before. The older fabric seemed more flattering, and didn’t stretch out throughout the day. Definitely go down a size if you are buying this fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit This is my third pair of the Madewell 8" skinnies, so I am clearly a fan. They fit me perfectly, and the price is very reasonable. I have a pair of black and a pair of blue in "Riverdale", and the only reason I gave the "Ames wash" 4 stars instead of 5, is because they looked lighter than the Riverdale online. I was hoping for a bit of variety, but when I received them, they looked almost identical to the Riverdale. I wish the very dark blue wash was still available in the 8". The 9" rise is a bad fit for me, and I won't even try on the 10" or higher versions. I do have a pair of 9" whites and although I wore them in the summer, I am not crazy about them to tell the truth. Please keep offering the 8" versions and maybe even bring back the classic dark blue color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but a little big I have several pairs of madewell skinny jeans (not the high rise ones), so I was excited when this new wash came out! It's even prettier in person. The bittersweet thing about these jeans is that they're so stretchy, which means super comfy but also a little roomy in the waist. I find myself having to pull them up a lot throughout the day, which I haven't had to do with my other madewell skinnies. For reference, I am 5'7" 115 and always wear a 24 tall in madewell.
