Madewell Email: This just in...

"Thanks!" to Marietta who shared the latest email Madewell (click here) sent yesterday.

The email features the City Slouch Trouser Jeans ($110.00) which are described as the following: "they're our latest stroke of denim genius: tailored pleats meet a modern, boyishly slouchy silhouette".

Is it just me or do these pants look weird around the crotch? Instead of these pants, Madewell should have featured the Mayfair Dress ($98) which is too cute for words!

What are your thoughts on the City Slouch Trouser Jeans? Do you like or dislike the style? Are you a fan of the pleats and/or length? :)


  1. sorry, but these are SOOOOOO unflattering!

  2. All the fashion tips I read tell me to avoid pleats on pants as they add bulk around the waist and hip. This cut is not flattering on anyone.

  3. They look a bit like harem pants, which are all the rage in France. I think it looks like she's wearing a diaper that needs changing.

  4. These couldn't be MORE unflattering. My rule of thumb is, if it doesn't look good on the model it's sure as heck isn't going to look good on me.
    If you were 5'11 and 115lbs this may look ok. For the rest of us... Not so much.

  5. Yeah, but I clicked over to the madewell page. Overall, it's a cute collection. Much better than the dirty-denim look in the last bunch of stuff they had.

  6. i do like the collection but agree with everyone about the pants...they just make her look fat!
