Madewell jeans have without a doubt become my go-to jeans. I love the way they fit and have a little stretch to make them comfortable. I have multiple styles and like the different options. Today I wanted to do a Madewell jeans review and try on for you! I know buying jeans can be the absolute worst! Hopefully this will help ease some of that and help you find a pair you love.
Madewell Jeans Review
In terms of a Madewell jeans review, I find them to be high quality and long lasting. They wear well for me. The website provides detailed sizing information which I find really helpful. You can locate the inseam, rise, and amount of stretch any given pair has. I do find unless a pair is 100% cotton that they stretch some. I also appreciate that they offer tall, petite, and plus. Some pairs are also offered in a mid-rise which often works better if you are shorter. They also offer free hemming. To note: they also do a denim recycling program. If you bring in an old pair of your jeans, you can get $20 off a new pair. I never buy my pairs full price either. I have often bought these on a $50 sale, during their 60% off Black Friday sale, etc.
Madewell Jeans Sizing
I am 5’10, and I typically wear a size 25-26. I would say most typically a 26. At Madewell I always wear a 25. I find their jeans to run a little larger than other retailers. I am wearing a size 25 in all of these jeans except for the flares. I sized down to a 24 in those. I also have on the regular length in all of them except the cali demi boot. I got a tall in those. I love all the options! I wanted to wear the same boots and sweater with all jeans so you could see how they are with the same shoe.
Madewell Jeans Try On
The perfect vintage jean is the ideal slim straight in my opinion. It is the perfect place to start if you want something that isn’t a skinny but you aren’t ready to break into a wider leg. It’s designed to be an ankle length jean. I find it works really well with an ankle boot. Below I am wearing this exact pair, but they come in SO many washes and inseam length.
I love the cali demi boot, or kick flare. The style of it (along with the perfect vintage) would make a great work jean. The length and style of it make it go perfectly over a boot or pairs so well with a sneaker.
The perfect vintage straight jean is what I would call a classic straight jean. It’s wider than the perfect vintage and designed to hit at your ankle. It also comes in a lot of washes. I love this style! I have worn it recently on the blog in cream here and in a non-ripped version here. You can see them styled with Converse and Chelsea boots. In the photo below I am wearing this pair.
The perfect vintage wide leg jean is the newest style to me and arguably my favorite! I love the wider silhouette while not being a wide/flare jean. I personally love these with a shirt tucked in or you have also seen me style them with a vest here.
Last but not least in my Madewell jeans review and try on is the flare jean! Their flare isn’t the style I typically think of with a flare where is narrows a lot at the knee and goes back out. It’s more of a wide leg. I really like them! I’ve styled them before for spring/summer here. My exact pair is older, but you can shop the same fits here.
