10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Chewed-Hem Edition

10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Chewed-Hem Edition is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! This is my first pair of Madewell jeans and I was unsure of what to expect. I noticed the quality of the product right away and when I tried them on, they were a perfect fit and so comfortable! I will definitely be buying more Madewell jeans in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans but I sized up These are my favorite jeans right now! Pros: Sturdy but stretchy--fantastic denim weight and quality. The color is perfect, and I adore the distressed hem and button fly details. Cons: the whiskered fade pattern at the hips does a great job of visually simulating jeans that are too small in the hips. The back pockets do not make your butt look great--something about the size/placement. They do stretch out after a while when you're wearing them. Sizing: I usually wear a 29 in Madewell jeans (and in fact took a 29 in the button-fly black jeans) but I sized up to 30 for these. I'm 5'6", 150, apple/ruler shaped, usually a size 8 in most brands for bottoms. 29 would button up fine, but excess negative ease in the hips causes the fly to gape unattractively between the buttons (you can see this in some of the gallery pics) and I'm not even particularly pear shaped. I think the size up is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from magic These are the most comfortable pair of high waisted jeans I've ever worn. I bought the regular length since petite was sold out. I did not like how the hem flared out since it was too long for me so I just cut of the hem and they still look good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy, totally worthy it It is very cute on you and very comfortable as well. Unique design. But remember order one size down than your normal jeans selection. I usually buy 26, but for this one, size 25 is perfect on me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Madewell Denim It's official, I'm exclusively buying my jeans from Madewell. This is my 5th pair of jeans from them and each one has been worth every penny and then some. Thank you Madewell for making jeans that flatter(all body types) and fit consistently. The buttons and hem on these beauties make them so special. I'm 5'3 and 1/2 and I got the regular hem, another inch and they would of been too long as the non-chewed part just hits the bottom of my ankle, they're perfect with flats and heels. Probably wouldn't wear them with boots/booties since I would have to roll them and the way the hem is makes it awkward to do so. The short hem wasn't available, I'm curious to try them and may buy when/if in stock again. So happy with this purchase!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winner These are soft, stretchy and stunning! Wore them yesterday with grey military boots and a tucked in light blue checked shirt and received compliments all day! I prefer not to wear jeans that make me look like I've been attacked by a dog, so I got these in regular instead of short so I could have my tailor cut off the chewed ankles. I'm 5 ft, 101 lbs and the 24R was perfect for my purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jeans ever I was unsure if the hems would be a bit too much for me at first. But upon trying these on I was totally obsessed!! Fits TTS. Took my normal 27 and I’m 5”5, 128 lb. Very slimming, perfect medium blue and love the button fly. You will get compliments galore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Love these jeans, they go with everything. I always get compliments when I wear them. Only thing is the bottoms flare out on the side where the hem is chewed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Jean I was hesitant to buy these jeans because they are a bit out of my comfort zone and because I am still losing baby weight. BUT they are the perfect pair of jeans! I wear them every day. They fit great, control my tummy and I constantly get compliments on them. Can't wait to purchase another pair of Madewell jeans soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, comfortable denim! When I first saw these jeans in the Fall Collection e-mail blast, I immediately fell in love and almost just as quickly decided to buy them! They are the perfect high-rise height for my body (I'm 5' 5") and I love the "chewed ankle" look. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out how comfortable they are. These are not stiff or suffocating as jeans can sometimes be, but they move easily and make my legs and butt look great: bonus!! Would highly recommend.
