I want a pair of Diors that fit similar to the Nudie Slim Jim, should I go 19cm or 21cm?

21cm
post #28 of 6313
^er.. You sure about that?
post #29 of 6313
I was thinking that the 21cm fit more like the Diesel Viker, and the 19cm was more like the Safado, which is what I compare the Slim Jim to. Is this way off? 19cm is not as slim as Diesel Thanaz, right?

The 21cm I have is more of a straight leg jean than anything I would consider "slim". I guess it has been said though that they can be worn slim with the right sizing..

no dior cut is like slim jim, and also no dior cut compares directly at all to any diesel cut. 19cm is slimmer and tapered. it is less slim at the very upper part of the thigh at the crotch compared to thanaz, but similarly slim through the rest of the thigh and knee. below the knee they are radically different because thanaz stays straight but 19cm tapers somewhat heavily. 21cm is less slim than 19cm and it is a straight leg, no taper. but beyond the leg the upper block of dior is much different than any diesel cut. i would say slim jim would be a cut somewhere between 19cm and 21cm if i had to compare.

Thanks Skidder

EDIT: Also, if I am a 29 in Zathans. should I get a 30 in the 19cm?

I am going to stay firm and say that Slim Jim is more towards the 21cm cut. I agree that they don't fit the same, but if we compare both cuts to the straight leg Slim Jim, 19cm is tapered, and 21cm is straight.
post #34 of 6313
^agreed it is MORE like 21cm, i just wanted to let the OP know that no matter which pair he gets it won't be the same. and also wanted to hopefully put an end to the "what diesel cut does it fit like" questions.

and if you are a 29 in diesel you will PROBABLY want a 30 in dior, but measure your jeans and compare. a 30 dior will measure 32" and stretch an inchb if they are tight and less if they are not. but the diors will be more narrow in the hips, so it depends on your body type. some people can get away with their diesel size, most cannot.

at diabro they sell Dior slim straights, does that mean they're 21cm?
post #36 of 6313
^thery sell both 19cm and 21cm. look at the measurements and you will know which is which. also diabro just makes up their own names for most of the jeans, so you need to be familiar with dior to know what you are looking ay sometimes.

There is a slight taper to the 21cm, which is what gives it the straight leg appearance. I really like the 21cm cut.

If what you want is in stock at a Dior store, don't proxy. They do mail order.

post #42 of 6313
what exactly are they called at the boutiques? japanese 19cm in indigo/black or is there a certain name they use in store
post #43 of 6313
do diors get severe knee bulges? the indigo pair specifically.
post #44 of 6313

Any jean that is tight at the knee will get knee bulges. As for the severity, that is based on what you consider severe.

yes, they bulge a lot. like tsukasa said, it will happen with any slim fitting jean if it is snug in the knee. it is more severe than thanaz i think, mainly just because they are being worn daily rather than rotated with other pairs. also, if you are wearing them to work or class or someplce where you will be sitting a lot it will tend to be worse.

there is no official name. different boutiques call them different things. its not hard to figure out what is what though.
post #48 of 6313
i picked up black mij 19cm today at the ny boutique. i stuck with my regular diesel waist, which i think fits pretty snug (i actually wouldn't want them to stretch much more than these).

pics:








^ my thighs look huge in this pic for some reason. they dont look like this in rl




^ look fat here too





and some stacking porn (there is actually more stacking, but i was laying down and it bunched around the knee)

post #49 of 6313
you need to sag them more imo
post #50 of 6313
^ i agree. they need to stretch a tiny bit more for me to be able to sag though
