Short 9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in ISKO Stay Black™

Short 9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in ISKO Stay Black™ is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I love these pants! The short inseam is perfect for petites (I am 5'3 and this is above my ankle.) At first they are super tight but they stretch over time. Great quality and one of my favorites for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Black Jean High-rise is perfect and the black is BLACK. Pockets are flattering and slimming. At 5'2", the "short" length hits perfectly at my ankle. I typically wear a size 0-2, and I ordered a size 26, just as I did in the Cali Boot Cut. These are definitely more fitted — there is no stretch in these jeans, and they don't stretch out with wear — so if you run between sizes, you may want to size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect black jeans I have been searching for plain, black skinny jeans and have had difficulty finding the right pair until now! Make sure to size down -- I went down TWO sizes because they are so stretchy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY! Petites!!! These are the best jeans. I'm thrilled Madewell started making petite sizes! I'm 5'1" and an athletic build, and the petite 24 fit so well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great true black jean, runs SMALL Great quality jean - thick and dark black - runs very small. I usually get a 24 in Madewell jeans and had to size up to 27 in these just to make them comfortable when sitting...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tighter than other skinnies Definitely more black than previous black jeans I've purchased from Madewell and they haven't faded yet from machine washing. These definitely feel more stiff and fit more snugly than other jeans from here though. I had to size up

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color and petie size but runs small I want a pair of black jeans and there are perfect especially with the petite size. However, these runs small especially with petite size according to the sales rep from the store. I'm normally 25 from madewell, i got 26 short and they fit snug. I haven't washed them yet, hope the color stays.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs small? I know that everyone is excited to find out MW has petit jeans now. I was one of these people. I am usually 25 or 26, I gained several pounds and I ordered both 26s and 27s to compare. The 27s are so tight on me! It is more like jogger than a jeans. I know these are suppose to be skinny jeans but I didn't expect them to be so tight. I would recommend to try them in store or order several sizes to try on. If you have shorter legs, these might not be as "short" as you would prefer. The smell of the jeans, which is also a problem that I've never encountered before. I have 6 pairs from MW, never notice such a strong smell. If you are also struggle like me to find a pair of perfect black skinny jeans, choose the size wisely and you may find your true love.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too baggy in the knees I was so excited when I learned Madewell was offering petite jeans. I wanted to like these jeans so badly, but they were way too baggy in the knees and bunched up. The ankles also did not fit like a true "skinny" - I'd say more like a "cigarette" or "toothpick" fit around the ankles. Unfortunately, I will be returning. For reference, I am 5'1 and 100 lbs.
