Seriously? Dior is made to fit a certain way. If your legs are too big for them, you shouldn't buy Dior. Why spend the $600 that a pair like that costs and then just destroy them? That would be missing the point of these jeans. If the slender fit doesn't work for you, just buy a different brand.

Hey guys! I really need help if these dior homme's are authentic and if so what the name of it is! It would really help a lot because I am new to dior denim. Please and thanks so much! I have heard yoox sometimes gives unauthentic products and just making sure this isn't one.

post #5905 of 6305

Thank you Aramis! I am just confused because I haven't been able to find the casual pants and especially the really destroyed one anywhere :( There have actually been very rare cases where they sell fakes on accident......I just don't want to have to deal with that, hahah. Could any denim experts please help me out?? Especially with the first destroyed one! Thank you so much to answers again!! It really helps...

actually they fit fine just at the waist was an inch too large and getting it hemmed but only like 2 inches so i can still have the stackings. just prefer it less extreme.

post #5907 of 6305

Nothing new on LVR about Dior Homme.

 

is LVR going to no more sell Dior? maybe but I don´t kow.

 

I think the most followed collection this spring summer is going to be SLP.

post #5911 of 6305

I don´t understand why people are so crazy about Givenchy. IMO all clothes are ugly and super overpriced (tipical clothes for rich american rapper).

 

But when the new collection arrives to LVR givenchy t-shirt last less than one week (t shirts that cost more than 500€).

 

I can´t understand that.

Because of Hedi :-)

post #5913 of 6305

is dior homme not going to have any new washes or is it that lvr is not stocking anything new?

post #5914 of 6305

It's not just LVR but a number of online retailers that have sold Dior in the past. I even ordered a pair from Farfetch back in August from a boutique in Italy and a few weeks later they took down all Dior jeans from the Farfetch website. I'm not sure what's going on but it looks like they are not allowing their jeans to be sold online or at least limiting this. That's a shame. Hopefully they will continue to make them, although the fit on washed jeans and the washes themselves, in my opinion, have been going downhill the past seasons. It would still be nice to pick up some raws. Anyone else know what's going on? Of the jeans that were visible on online sites this season, there didn't appear to be many washed pairs at all.

post #5915 of 6305

I agree with MathhewK; it looks like as if dior don´t want jeans are sold on internet. This is what you can read on a e-boutique:

 

"Shop this product is bound by exclusivity reasons. Please Click on "How to Shop" to get this item."

 

I think this policy is completly stupid; in a globilizated world in which e-commerce is becoming more and more important this kind of decision could result very damageful to this brand.

 

It is true that DH jeans not what they were (they are much more expensive, but the quality and the originality go down dramatically). Maybe it is a marketing movement; they could create a image of exclusivity (not only going up prices as they have done during last years but banned selling on e-boutique).

 

I think it is time to explore another brand (and of course everyone are expecting Slimane jeans; even Dior Homme, maybe this is the reason because they are changing their policy).

post #5916 of 6305

Hi everyone. I'm new here, even though I've been lurking for a while because the last couple of years or so I've become increasingly interested in denim. I already own some high-end jeans (4 PRPS pairs and a couple of made in Italy Diesels), but even though I'm not really a fan of skinny jeans, I like Dior because with the stacking the lower part of the leg doesn't look that skinny.

 

I was already considering to buy a pair of Jakes as a self-present for Christmas and after reading your last few messages I think this might be one of the last chances to get a pair online (no Dior boutiques around).

 

Does this seller look legit to you?

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DIOR-HOMME-SKINNY-FADED-BLUE-17-5CM-JAKE-STRETCH-JEANS-/121030259035?pt=US_CSA_MC_Jeans&var=&hash=item1c2df7315b

 

Woud you be wary of paying that amount?

 

My other question is regarding sizing, as usual. I wear 32 in Diesel Krooley (my slimmest jeans) and PRPS, but PRPS tends to be baggy anyway, and I was considering a 32.

 

According to the item description from the seller, a size 32 is 43 cm in the waist. I've just measured my Krooley and a pair of raw PRPS Barracuda and they are both around 44-45 across, but they have already streched a bit.

 

If a 33 would be better for me, then maybe I could order a pair from Luisa via Roma, as they have that size available, and it's even cheaper, but I'm concerned they are too big.

 

Thanks in advance.

They are focusing more on tailored clothing and moving away from the rock n' roll look, at least that's what the SAs tell me.  I suppose SLP will target the thin rocker vibe.

 

I saw some of the new S/S 2013 pieces at the new boutique; they look amazing!  They're definitely sophisticated.  There was one new pair of denim I saw that was MIJ, 17.5 cut, almost a grayish raw look with a touch of stretch that was fantastic.  $800 though, IIRC!

 

On another note, I was invited to a party that evening to celebrate the opening of the boutique and saw KVA.  He was wearing one of his new pieces and it looked incredible!

it's legit seller and jakes are authentic. really don't know, if it's good idea to buy slimmest dh cut (what jake is), when your "slimmest" cut is diesel krooley... btw. it's even carrot cut, not skinny. regarding the sizing..., here are tons of posts about sizing. but I guess size 32 could fit, but remember, jake is totally different from krooley. it's more like thanaz... but cuts are not comparable at all.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Yes I understand that maybe it's not a cut for me, I'm not used to skinny jeans at all.

 

I've ordered a size 33 from LVR and let's see what happens. I've seen some measurements from some eBay sellers with SS12 Jakes and it seems it might fit, or maybe a bit loose in the waist but I don't think I can fit in jeans with thighs under 30 cms anyway. BTW, I'm 180 cms (5'11')' and around 78 kgs (170 lbs).

 

If it's too big but I like the cut I will return it and order one from the eBay seller.

post #5920 of 6305

Hi guys, today I got my Jakes size 33 from LVR. As expected the waist is a bit loose (a 32 would be better, and if we account for stretching, even a 31) but thighs and butt wise it's the right size for me and I'm going to keep them.

 

I was a bit disappointed with the wash and the overall quality, they don't look as great as I thought. I know the most special thing about these jeans is the cut, but I was kind of expecting to be pleasantly surprised as I was with my first pair of PRPS in terms of quality and details but it wasn't the case. I will start wearing the Diors and see if I change my mind. :)

Granted Jake is a nice pair of jeans, but to be very honest, I don't really know why most people are so crazy about them. It a great pair of everyday jeans and the cut is divine, but that's probably all to it, though the wash is more impressive and a lot more natural on the earlier versions of Jake.

 

DH actually has released a lot of jeans that were a lot more impressive and better than Jake, but LVR didn't always carry these great modals. You may need to go look for some Japanese websites or auctions, it's more likely you'll find some rare fine things there. But the prime time of DH jeans has very much passed, it's indeed harder now to find nice jeans from the couture house. Go for the past modals, at least the ones before 2011, if you eventually find DH to your liking :-)

post #5922 of 6305

Ahhh... haven't thought about buying DH jeans for ages.

 

Can anyone tell me the name of this pair, and any info they might have on fit? Not crazy about them, which normally means not to buy, but I wouldn't mind a light wash for some summer evenings; not sure how this light wash would look in 17cm, especially with all the distressing etc.

 

 

 

Cheers!

Thanks, if I like the pair I just got I will look for some older models. I've read about Slimane era being the one with the best Dior jeans.

 

Jake was the wash that caught my eye. Anyway, I was comparing them to PRPS, which for me it's the best in terms of quality and details when it comes to predistressed jeans. I mean, they do the whole zimbabwean cotton-vintage looms-japanese manufacture combo that most top japanese brands do, but these usually don't do predistressed (PRPS has raws, though). And I don't know if I like jeans which are not 100% cotton.

 

Anyway, PRPS in terms of cuts it's the opposite of Dior, they tend to be baggy so they won't appeal the typical Dior wearer. Some of their washes are quite excessive as well, and while they can be as pricey as Dior at retail, they are probably less exclusive (I couldn't care less about this, though). They can't really be compared.

 

I will wear my new Jakes and see how I like them. I just got some HM & Margiela side zips which I think should go well with them (I like how Jakes look with slim boots, don't like them with sneakers).

post #5925 of 6305

I'm looking to buy 2 pairs of Dior denim; the SS12 17.5 Jake wash as well as a pair of SS12 Skinny Khaki's. I'm having trouble determining what size to buy.

Most of my current denim consists of N&F Skinny Guy and Levis 510. In both I purchase a size 31 and in both instances the waist is tight and requires minimal but some effort to button the top button. I chose a 31 rather than a 32 to maintain as much slimness within the legs as possible. I'm 5,9/160 of athletic build with barely any body fat. The Jakes are available in size 31 & 32. I've seen suggestions to size down as well as size up so I'm unsure. I've only found the Khaki's in a size 30.

Naked and Famous Skinny Guy Black Power Stretch

Size: 31
Waist: 40.64cm
Rise: 24cm
Inseam: 92.71cm
Length: 114cm
Hem: N/A

Jakes

Size: 31
Waist: 42cm
Rise: 24cm
Inseam: 98cm
Length: 122cm
Hem: 17.5cm

Size: 32
Waist: 43cm
Rise: 25cm
Inseam: 100cm
Length: 124cm
Hem: 18cm

All input appreciated greatly.
