It's been a year since Madewell moved its denim HQ to Los Angeles and gave its jeans offerings a major makeover. Today, the J.Crew-owned brand is expanding the category even further, offering a whopping 47 new styles for fall from biker zip skinnies to a denim flight suit (check out both of those in the photos below). Their newest fit, the Alley Straight, boasts "a longer inseam for a pooling effect (i.e. laid-back bunching) at the ankle." Noted.
Along with the expansion of product comes a redesigned denim bar on the company's site, the digital answer to their in-store set-up. Jeans orders on the site (or by phone, if you're into that kind of thing) are offered with free shipping and free returns for full-price styles, plus any order (web, in-store, or that phone thing) is subject to free hemming. Can Madewell steal the thunder of your favorite jeans? Get a closer look at the denim portion of their fall offerings below.
