My Jeans Sob Story: Madewell Jeans

I have been wearing American Eagle jeans religiously since middle school.
My favorite pair of American Eagle jeans, you’ve all seen them before, are from freshman year of college.
They are so stretchy and comfy. Soft. The perfect blue color. The perfect length, all thanks to size “tall.”
But, unfortunately, like all good things, they must come to an end. My favorite pants are reaching their end of life.
I’m sure this is very relatable for all of you and you know how I feel.

I have tried to replace them from American Eagle, but this pair no longer exists. I found out over the summer, and I was devastated. I ordered another similar pair, but the color was off.

Okay, enough of the dramatics about my favorite pants.

When I told my friends at J.Crew my sob story about my favorite jeans, they recommended I try Madewell jeans.

You all know, I eat, sleep and breathe J.Crew. Madewell is J.Crew’s sister brand. 
I was a bit skeptical and nervous to leave the comfort of American Eagle and branch out to a new brand, leaving American Eagle behind, but I was ready.

I went to the store and found two pairs I really liked. I loved the colors. Madewell has high waisted jeans that come in “tall” and “taller!” The “tall” was too short for me, so I ordered the “taller” in store. And then the “taller” arrived and it was a bit too long for me, but because I have a J.Crew credit card, I was able to get them hemmed for free!

I am wearing one pair in these photos. They are super form fitting and suck me in. They are a little too tight right now, but I have only worn them for two days now and feel them stretching a bit more every second I wear them. I was also recommended to buy a size smaller than normal so they can stretch a bit and mold to my body. They are also super high waisted, aka, past my belly button! AMAZING! Actual high waisted pants for tall girls!

I am not saying that these are my new favorite pants. It is going to take me some time before I can fully let go of my beloved American Eagle pair, but for right now, they are moving their way up in the ranks.

Thanks for reading my DRAMATIC story about my jeans.
