It’s here, it’s here (!). Our curvy fit has arrived. We took classic skinnies with smoothing Magic Pockets in front and reengineered them for women with an hourglass shape—translation: if you have a booty, these jeans are for you. We chatted with our denim design expert, Aubrey, about how this style came to be and why she can’t wait for people to try ’em.
Ah, the ’70s—an endless font of wardrobe inspiration that we always seem to find ourselves tapping into. Lately, we’ve been focused on the DIY-ness of that time. Think destructed, reconstructed, pieced-together denim that’s unique and personal yet ready to wear with anything in your closet.
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. Continue reading →
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.
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.
In Defense of the High-Rise Boyjean
an essay by Meredith Chamberlain
I’m loyal to a high waist. The right pair has the power to make me stand up straight, hold myself more confidently. It’s something about the core, the gut, an intuition thing. As a woman, they work in my favor, serve as a reminder of my inner strength. I zip up, button, and my instincts kick in.
In case you didn’t already know, everyone here at Madewell really loves jeans. What we love just as much is being able to use jeans to do well. We’re proud partners with Blue Jeans Go Green™—a program that gives new life to the pre-loved pairs you bring to our stores by turning them into housing insulation for communities in need. Recently, 33 members of our team took part in that transformation IRL at a house build with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.
Buttery croissants, a good pair of jeans and Saturdays with nothing to do but relax—these are a few of Brooklyn-based artist Joey Pasko’s favorite things. We recently had the chance to chat with Joey—but there was a catch. Rather than answering our questions with words, we asked him to sketch his responses. The (oh so adorable) results are below.
