Sh!t, I'll have to give up on INK MEs. They are elastane jawnz cuz there is "stretch" on their tag. I wanna kill KVA!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't get why you hate stretch jeans so much Marcus.
post #5553 of 6304

Yeah I also dont get it. Especially with Dior. Dior's elastine is vastly superior to any other elastine Ive come across. This is true with the AW11 and beyond. I dont know about earlier than that. What is your thing about?

1) I really like jeans to stretch and Get ripped NATURALLY
2) maybe I'm too sensitive but I think the touch of elastane jeans are kindda weird.
Yes, I know that may not happen in Dior. So I guess I'll try hard to accept elastane jeans. Prolly start from jake.

those I would either be your normal size or one size down. To be safe go with your normal Dior size.

I agree with jeanetic. Plus, I find that jeans with a bit of stretch last longer over time since the fabric can adjust to strain without weakening or ripping. To being stretched out, as the name would imply. Especially with quality denim and craftsmanship like Dior uses.

Besides, not all stretch jeans feel the same. So if you've had a bad or weird pair in the past, don't let that ruin all of them for you icon_smile.gif

Are there any thick stretch jeans?? I would like to try some thick ones:)
post #5559 of 6304
Every stretch DH I've tried on have been thick denim. Jake is especially thick. Which DH stretch have you seen that's not thick?
post #5560 of 6304
Workaday is not thick at all I think
post #5561 of 6304

Workaday isnt thick.

 

In my opinion jakes are not thick as well, my slenders + fuzzy dream are not thick. They're all stretched.

 

Whats thick for me are rack rails, black and blue clawmark. They are heavy denim.

 

Oh well, thick or thin - its all relative. And this is my thought. Also .. I prefer the thicker feel.

post #5562 of 6304
Thick denim lover here haha. Do Sheva, are you satisfied with the thickness of jakes?
post #5563 of 6304
I don't know about work a day but my jakes have been thick with the exception of my 19cm. But both of my 17.5 were much thicker than my Clawmarks and much thicker than my raws. They are about as thick as my blue crash and rack rails. Granted they are MUCH softer but the denim itself is very thick.

Sheva, your Clawmarks are thick? That's strange but maybe different seasons varied because my Clawmarks are among my thinnest Diors. They are great summer weight.
post #5564 of 6304
Jeanetic, what's your number on the tag of your clawmarks tag? Mine is PI3110530312-502. And mine is thick
post #5565 of 6304
Can anyone pleaz ID this: PI3110530312-502 ? which season are they from??
post #5566 of 6304

I will have to find out for you later on. Also, about the Jakes. I think it depends on what season and where you get them. Saddock bought Jakes from LVR that he later sold to me. He said at the time they were thick. Then he bought some at his local DH store and said the denim was thinner from the store. I bought 19cm jakes from a french boutique and they were thinner. I just bought my new 17.5 Jakes from the DH store in NY and the denim is really thick. I have a new pair of 19cm that will be here wednesday. I am anxious to see whether this denim will be thick or thin!

post #5567 of 6304
I can't find the same ref code anywhere. Those are some clawmarks I ordered from LVR Few weeks ago, but the ref code of 12ss clawmarks are not them cuz my uncle order 7 clawmarks from LVR for his buddies this season and none of them are the same as mine (they are all sz29+) I think mine came from the earlier seasons that LVR didn't sold out. I just wanna know if they are from SS or AW:( need help here
post #5568 of 6304

no sizes for jakes on LVR for me =(

 

what are your recommendations for Work a day?

post #5569 of 6304

I saw 3 pairs of 12AW at the boutique. There are alot of maroon, Black wash with maroon fades.

 

 

NOTE: all are based on MY opinion

 

hmmm lets see if this is clearer. i guess jakes are considered thick denim, but because of the stretch i feel that they're thin. not sure if that made any sense. Just by touching the denim the jakes feel soft, the clawmarks are rough.

 

I have the hedi 07' blue clawmarks and KVA black clawmarks.The clawmarks are thick for me, especially when i sit down i can really feel the heavy texture, not so much with the jakes. consider 100% cotton vs 97/3% though this is not true for every pair, there are 100% cotton that are thin like the fuzzy dream. Anyways when sitting down, the jakes feel light and thin probably becos of the stretch. Also i accidentally dropped a spoon of ice cream on my black clawmarks, i immediately wiped them off, thinking they were gonna be stained. Guess what? it didnt even penetrate through the denim, it was spotless. With the jakes, im sure it'd be stained.

 

Oh marcus, i like the thicker denims. Especially the weight of the denim, makes it such a joy to wear them. It always excites me to choose from which pair i'll be wearing everyday.

Love thick denim too!!!! Are there any thin claws?? I was told that claws from every season were made from almost the same texture. I'm really not do sure bout the thin claws, I think mine is just ok
post #5572 of 6304

doesnt bother me if its MII or MIJ, thick or thin. They're still top notch. If you like the wash, and happens to only be in MII or available to you in MII than MIJ, just grab them. If theres both mij and mii, than go for the mij.  

 

Except for raws, its MIJ or miss for me.

I was chatting with a DH salesperson and he said that all their denim is sourced from Japan but some of it is finished there (MIJ) and some in Italy (MII).  So...the quality of the denim is always top notch, but some of the particular washes are particular to the provence.

yeah the only real difference is that MIJ feels more tapered below the knee and the rear rise on MIJ is much higher which makes for a better fit IMO

thanks for the reply, do you have any ideas about if these will stretch out or dramatically loosen around the waist?
