Madewell is a brand that has been around since 1937. Originally a workwear company based in Massachusetts, Madewell started out as a denim jean company that made highly durable long lasting jeans of the highest of quality. Eventually they expanded to clothing other than denim. Perfectly fitting tee shirts, chambray shirts that can be worn for a variety of occasions, and timeless leather boots and bags are only a few of many great items that can be found from Madewell.
One of the unique aspects of Madewell is that each type of clothing has its own label so your jeans will have a different label than your shoes or bag does but the common thread is that all of them are going to be high quality and long lasting. The main label is Madewell which is used for all of their denim like jeans, jackets, and shirts. Buckley labels are used for clothing that has a vintage or menswear vibe to it. Examples of Buckley clothing are vests, blazers, and trousers. Perfectly fitting tee shirts and tank tops come with the Hi-Line label attached to them. 1937 Accessories is self expanitory but if you are unsure, it is used exclusively for the ultra cool shoes, bags, and jewelry. Wearmaster is used for heritage inspired outerwear made from the softest of wools or tumbled leather. Sweaters and Cardigans have Wallace labels on them. New Haven labels mean that the clothing is tailored, workwear blazers or vests. The last label is Rain-O-Shine which all of the rainwear falls under. Every time a signature look is added to the Madewell family you can expect to see a new label created.
Since Madewell started out making denim, it only makes sense that the majority of their clothing today is denim. There are so many different cuts and styles of jeans that can be found but a few of my favorites are the dark wash flat front flare leg Vintage Rocker Jeans, the 5 pocket Skinny High Riser Jeans with 11″ leg openings, and the Shrunken Chambray Boys Shirt. The Chambray shirt can be worn with so many different looks like jeans, maxi skirts, or pants. The shirt itself is timeless and classic, has worn spots and is in a vintage faded blue color so it will last you more than one season and will look great year after year.
Madewell also has many great classic sweaters and cardigans to choose from in a wide array of colors. You can wear these sweaters for work or for fun. These sweaters are great if you want a classic look as well as if you are looking for a lady like look which has been a popular trend for a few seasons now.
The shoes and boots from Madewell are trendy to a degree but are not trendsetters. These shoes and boots are classic and timeless but have some aspects of the current season’s trends to them as well so you can wear them for more than one season easily.
Madwell is close to a century old and gets better with each passing year. If you are unable to get to one of the 26 locations across the US, you can find the brand online.
