Product Details
Lean and sexy, this one's legs-for-days look comes from using best-of-the-best denim (in this case, straight from Japan). Plus, the 9" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet (and, a touch of added stretch ensures you're still totally comfortable). Go ahead and tuck in your shirt—you've got nothing to hide in these jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and comfortable! these jeans are so incredibly flattering! The elastic, "slimming pocket," is actually amazing and makes me look AND feel pulled in and comfortable. I am 5'7" and 145 lbs, the 26 (which is my normal madewell jean size) fits like a glove, and held its shape all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall Jean Love this pair of jeans! Great skinny jean for fall. Looks wonderful in high boots or with a bootie! The fiber content of this particular pair is my favorite, just a little bit of stretch but still feels like denim. Great distresssing without actual holes in the material. Wish they had more washes so I could get them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! These jeans look amazing on. They hold you in without being uncomfortable. I have been purchasing madewell jeans for 3 years now and the quality is excellent. These are definitely my favorite pair of distressed jeans. The color is beautiful. Perfect for a fall weekend. For reference, I am 5'4" and 137 lbs and a 27 fit perfect. I am normally a 27-28 in Madwell denim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the wash & distressing! I saw these online and loved them, so when I was at Madewell over the weekend I tried them on & had to have them. The wash is a perfect darker blue and the distressing is amazing! I personally love the back pocket, it's not actually a hole it's distressing to look like a hole with denim layered behind it. I also love that their are no rips in the knee & they are nice and thick like most of my other Madewell jeans. I got the size 24 (5' 110lbs) and they fit great! Overall 10/10 would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic pockets AMAZING!! Magic pockets in their jeans are fantastic. It changes the look and feel. Even after a little stretching the magic pockets still uphold their magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jeans Jeans fit good. I’m 4”11 & the length is fine not as long as some of their other jeans. Color is nice. I know your making other jeans to come in as a short length which is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second pair! I love these jeans so much! I’m usually a 32 but they stretched easily so I sized down to a 31 and love love them! Luckily another pair was in stock so I got another pair! If you see your size - don’t wait. Just buy them or they’ll sell out and you’ll cry! A lot. I’ve traded up to madewell jeans this year and haven’t looked back!
