Lowest Rise front AND back?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Im just curious- I generally find that even though many jeans seem to be low rise front, the back still tends to ride high. For my body shape this rarely works and results in serious bunching.
The only jeans so far that I have had that do not do this are true religions.
SFAMs, R&Rs, and previous Diesels (Kratts) all did this.

I tried the Viker recently and found it to be nice and low in both the front and the back. I've heard that the Farco is similar in that regard. Is the Zathan pretty close to the same as those two or is it higher? Their rise measurements are close, but as its been mentioned some Diesels fit higher/lower regardless of rise measurements.

Suggestions? Not looking for X-Rotucks or Shazors (which I think fit high in the back anyways)

well, quratt is about as high rise (and loose) as diesels come, so i'm not surpeised that those didn't suit you. if you like viker's rise, farco, zathan, and zatiny will be about the same as that. slammer also has a low back rise. stay away from yarik for sure, because although the front rise is very low the back is kind of high. if you really want a low back rise, you probably should consider x-rotuck even though you say you don't want them. they are the lowest rise men's cut that diesel has ever made both in front and back. the difference in fit by wash in terms of rise usually has most to do with the fabric used. a thick or stiff deniim will sit higher until it breaks in and softens enough to lat properly, so i wouldn't worry much about that.

X-Rotucks are similar to True Religion Joeys I've heard, minus the tighter leg. They both have quite a flared bootcut! I think their rise is similar too

Thanks for the info Jskidder

oh wow. I think I just threw up a little bit from that x-ro to joey comparison.

I can't imagine x-rotucks fit anything close to TR. Rotucks are super tight everywhere (except the flare) and super low rise. The TRs I've seen fit much looser.

i have TR Joeys, yes they are quite a loose fit. They are very comfortable though since they are quite loose, and the denim is has a pretty nice feel to it. They have quite a mean flare though.
I'm actually looking to replace them. Im thinking that Zathans may do the trick. I'm pretty short-torso'd so the lower the rise the better.

Well I have TR Joey's in 26 and X-rotuck in 28 and the tightness is pretty close.

Fore the rise, the 26 Joey's are maybe even a little lower than the 28 x-ro.

ehh, I think the zathan is more like the billy than the joey. as far as similar, I think the zaf would be the closest to the joeys. they're still low rise, but more relaxed in the thigh, and more extreme boot like the joey is.

TRs have their place! Probably not in the Diesel section though

Actually if you really like Super-Lowrise jeans, you should try Levis Offender jeans.
IDK if U can get em anywhere else other than ebay though~
I had mine in 28 some time ago & they had 7" rise.
Too bad they were too small as they run really tiny all around

I think a 7" rise is too low. Ideally, I'd like to find a jean with an 8" rise. Zathans are usually between 9 and 9.5, Farcos around 9 from what I've found. I have been searching out nice pairs of X-Ros and Farcos lately and I will probably settle for one of those. However, I still continue to search for an 8" rise. So far the options have been womens jeans, which I'd rather avoid.
