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?
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.
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.
^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.
^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.
do diors get severe knee bulges? the indigo pair specifically.
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.
