We’re at over 200,000 pairs—and counting (!). Keep bringing us your pre-loved jeans, and we’ll keep transforming them into housing insulation for communities in need. Did we mention you’ll get $20 towards new ones?* Talk about good vibes.
It’s hard not to appreciate Camilla Engstrom’s playful art, which includes sculptures, drawings and paintings. It’s almost always funny, often bizarre, and above all, relatable. We visited Camilla in her Brooklyn studio and talked about how she overcomes creative hiccups, the key to success as a woman in the art world and her current Cardi B obsession. Continue reading
In Defense of Black Denim
an essay by Natalie Shukur
In my mind, black denim is just about the most punk thing you can wear. Skaters, rockers, beatniks—fringers of all stripes—these touchpoints of antiestablishment, androgynous style are forever tacked to my internal mood board. And black denim, birthed in basements and garages, overdyed and DIY, has long been part of my uniform.
Our latest out-of-office adventure took to us Yonkers, New York, where East Coast members of Team Madewell helped build a house with Habitat for Humanity. (BTW, did you catch our last one in LA?) On an early Friday morning, suited up in jeans and sneaks, we hopped on a bus from our NYC HQ and set off for some quality do well time.
We’re hitting the road again with Blue Jeans Go Green™ collecting your old denim and transforming it into housing insulation for communities in need. Each pair you bring will get you $20 off a new one*—and even better, the first 10 people to recycle at the first event in each city will score free jeans. Since we’ll be traveling for a few months, we asked Team Madewell friends across the country to share their favorite local spots in some of our tour stops—and they were just too good not to pass on.

Head-turning, eye-catching, traffic-stopping—the styles we want to wear right now are also the epitome of artful effortlessness.
Attention: ladies 5’3” and under—get ready because we now have jeans made just for you (!). To help celebrate the launch of our new petite jeans, we chatted with some members of Team Madewell about emoji feels, perfect pairs and what they’re going to do with all that money now that trips to the tailor are out of the picture.
We don’t use the word “magic” lightly. Allow us to explain just three of the million reasons why we can’t get enough of our jeans with Magic Pockets in front.
Fact: We’re denimheads. So our design team is always looking to make our jeans better than ever, and this newest pair of skinnies is no exception. Another fact? The 10″ high-risers in Danny wash are really, really soft. Made of special denim woven with Tencel® lyocell from the best-of-the-best Orta mill, their incredible level of comfiness is kinda hard to put into words. Until you can feel them for yourself, allow us to illustrate.
These jeans are as soft as…
