The heart of Madewell Clothes is the 8 Madewell Clothes Values: Fair; Sustainable; Transparent; Vegan; Local; Minimal Waste; Handcrafted; and Gender Equality. For a label to be sold on Madewell Clothes it must meet the environmental and human rights standards of our Code of Conduct and the requirements of at least 1 of the 8 Madewell Clothes Values.

For a label to meet the Sustainable value, for example, it must make at least 80% of its products from sustainable materials. When Wellmade talks about ‘sustainable’, we’re not just talking about ‘natural’, either. We’re talking about organic textiles, transition cotton, certified closed loop viscose, recycled polyester and nylon, recycled cotton, and hemp. To meet these value labels they also use low-impact dyes or be climate neutral.

Ultimately, Madewell provides information about, and the ability to shop, for clothes with ethical values.

How to choose the right Madewell size

Related: How to Measure Your Body for Clothing Sizes

1. Look at men’s suits
Since many garments produced today are of low quality, it is recommended that you investigate the finest well-made men’s store in your area. Learning what goes into quality clothing will help you recognize it when you find it in the wilds of a secondhand store or clearance rack.

It’s important to note that this guidance applies equally to the ladies. The cost of clothing is a not-so-hidden additional expense of being a woman. Although women spend the same or more for their apparel, men’s clothing is almost always of greater quality.

2. Check the Hand

The “hand of the cloth” is not a supporting actor in GOT; rather, it is a snooty way of describing the texture of a fabric. Does it feel starched, like a bonnet? Is it as rough as a cat’s tongue? Like a 1950s slip, is it soft and drapey? Most times, the fabric sets high-end designer outfits apart from cheap knock-offs. For its collection line, J. Crew will produce a sweater made entirely of cashmere.

For its mainline and J. Crew Outlet locations, the company will produce identical sweaters made of cotton and a cashmere blend. Search first for a good fabric, as it will keep its form and durability for a longer time than its cheaper rivals. Fabrics that aren’t up to par will allow you to create a beautiful gown, but it won’t last long.

If you want to make sure that everything you buy will fit, rub your face against it first. If the cloth is irritating to your face, it will probably irritate the rest of your body as well.

3. Double-Check Fabric Content

There is no guarantee that a sweater labeled “100% cashmere” is actually made entirely of the material. These days, it’s common practice for manufacturers to include a negligible quantity (about 7 percent) of cashmere fiber in their products so they can label them as “cashmere blends.”

Do not get duped into paying more or unusual activity than necessary for low-quality cotton flannel!

The quality of the cloth used is significant even in staples like jeans. Lycra is used in a wide range of denim products because it improves fit and provides stretch. Most consumers prefer their denim to have some give in order to maximize comfort. Fabric selection, however, must be based on preference and body shape.

For jeans, I am one of those persons that rarely wash them so that the fade lasts as long as possible. To accommodate this peculiarity of mine, they make the only denim I can wear of 98% cotton or more. To keep their form, the jeans need to be washed every few wears if they contain over 2% Lycra, in my experience. Lycra equals baggy knees and a droopy butt for me because I don’t wash my jeans very often mostly the larger size.

Among the best pieces of advice is to use the scrunch test. Give the fabric a good wringing. When you let go, do the wrinkles return to the fabric? Think about the effort, time frame, and cost involved in keeping an item of clothing looking good, regardless of how lovely the fabric is. Don’t buy linens if you don’t enjoy ironing.

Frequently asked questions

1. Do the sizes run small at Madewell?

They fit as expected, however, if you’re in between sizes, check the manufacturer’s or our sizing chart to make sure you get the proper pair.

2. Does Madewell sizing run big?

To begin, you should know that these Madewell apparel run big. After scaling down, you will still feel like they were too big. This will make them worry they didn’t really fit and that wearing them for any length of time might be a little uncomfortable.

3. Does it shrink if you wash Madewell jeans?

No, however, many washes have been utilized in denim since the 1980s, so they no longer shrink as much. Made with a new generation of stretch denim that won’t bag out or lose its form, the new Madewell denim is fantastic in its own right; it’s like wearing a pair of Spanx under your clothes.

4. How stretchy are your favorite Madewell jeans?

We’d like to introduce you to the Boyjean, the softest pair of jeans Madewell has to offer. Wellmade’s most comfortable and spacious denim is their boy jean style. My personal experience has taught me that Boyjeans shrink a lot after being worn and washed.

5. What’s the perfect size for a woman?

To get the best results, your dimensions should be Measurements: bust, 34–35 inches; waist, 24–25 inches; hips, 34–35 inches. If you’re a woman above 5 feet 6 inches tall, here’s how you should measure up: A 35–37′′ bust, a 25–27′′ waist, and 35–37′′ hips are standard.

6. What jean size is considered skinny?

Slim is a size 6. The median is reported to be anywhere from 12 to 16. A woman of 5′ height will look very different in a size 12 than a woman of 5’11”.

7. What is the Wellmade return policy / Exchange item?

Within 30 days after purchase, customers can return any in-store purchase for a full refund or exchange if the item is unworn, unused, washed, damaged, or defective. Please keep in mind that they can only accept returns of swimwear, bodysuits, and intimates with all tags and liners still attached.


Some recommendations when washing Madewell jeans are: Wash them less frequently. Some people say they need to be washed every few months, but you actually only need to do that every four or five times you wear them. You need to wash them once a month at the very least because you wear them so often.

When you wash them, only use cold water, and avoid using the dryer. But if they’ve loosened up too much, you will toss them in the dryer for a while, and the fibers will return to their original, broken-in state.

If you want to keep your clothes smelling fresh in between washes, you can spot-clean them in the freezer. There will be no odor-causing bacteria left after that.
