Well I finally did it, I bought my first pair of Madewell jeans! This is also the first pair of jeans that I’ve spent a lot of money on, and they were worth every penny. I’ve never really invested in jeans before because I figured they’re all the same: uncomfortable denim. However, I have found that not all denim is the same (read about my disdain for pants here). A reformed denim hater has seen the light!
Now when it comes to jeans I don’t really give them much of a second thought. If they looked good and fit well I didn’t really care much past that. However, I was realizing that while I was saving money, these jeans weren’t really that comfortable or wore out after about a year of use. So I needed to find a pair that I would feel good, look good, and wear for a while.
Madewell is known for having great quality denim so I decided to start there. I have been wanting a pair of their jeans for a while anyway. Normally I would wait for a pair I liked to go on sale or something but I knew the styles that I’d want wouldn’t go on sale or they’d sell out as soon as they went on sale.
Since I figured I’d pay full price for a pair, I waited to save up and pick the right pair that I wanted. I had tried my jeans on a couple of times and then finally pulled the trigger about a month ago. And I’m so glad I did! These jeans are the best. They’re soft, stretchy (stay TTS because they will stretch), and comfy. I went with the 9-inch because it’s the right length for me and they’re perfect. I can’t wait to wear these into the fall and winter!
Is there somewhere you love to get your jeans? I’d love to hear new recommendations!
