A few weeks ago I made my first denim purchase at Madewell. I had checked them out before but nothing really caught my eye until I tried on a pair of their Rail Straight in Western Wash. The denim was super soft like a pair you’ve owned for years.
I’ve been looking for a new pair of jeans for a while now. I only ever wear these that I bought nearly 2 years ago. Cheap $15 pair from Forever 21. It’s time for an upgrade. I figure if I’m only gonna own 1 pair of jeans they could at least be a nice pair. I wanted something more relaxed fit too. Not super skinny tight; fitted but comfortable! These from Madewell are exactly that. A nicer denim to wear into work on Casual Fridays.
I used Madewell’s denim hemming service as well. Now, I had thought their denim hemming was free. Others commented that they had thought this as well or had actually used this service for free. When I asked the staff they seemed sorta surprised I had thought that! I did see that their denim hemming is sometimes free during their “Denim After Dark” sale! I might have gotten the idea from that since they are always doing sales. Either way it wasn’t too bad. $20 for “original hem.” Cheaper than the last hemming I had done elsewhere.
They came back looking great too!
It took little over a week. Though a salesperson apologized saying it shouldn’t have taken “so long.”. I appreciated hearing that though I didn’t really mind waiting a few extra days.
Picked up some Happy Socks while there getting my jeans.
Figured they’d look nice paired together with my oxfords!
