I had never had a pair of great fitting jeans until about 3 years ago. It was so hard for me to find an affordable pair that fit correctly, and the ones that did were way out of my budget. Instead, I would buy jeans from places like Buffalo Exchange or Wasteland that were good enough. There was usually something just a little off – the rise, the wash, the stretch.

Enter Madewell. My holy Mecca of denim. The first time I shopped there, I tried on a pair of the high riser skinny cut, bought them and wore them out of the store. I bought two more pairs the next week. They just get it. Since then, I’ve been 100% loyal to Madewell jeans, which you may have already figured out. I’ve thought about trying out Re/Done or Grlfrnd jeans but it’s almost like, what’s the point. I just feel great in Madewell. They are my perfect jeans.

Last season, they released this pair of button fly skinnies in a light wash, but they were too similar to a pair I already owned to justify the purchase. To my delight, the re-released the silhouette in this classic blue denim. They’ve already claimed their place as a staple in my denim collection. So comfortable and versatile!

What is your go-to brand of denim?
