diesel larkee size

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi,great forum this is my first post.icon_smile.gif

I have a question.I decided to buy my third diesel larkee from the diesel online shop

,the problem is that i don't know which is the right size for me.Let me explain,.

I bought my first larkee wash 8ss (w30 l30)from my nearest local store and had no issue because it perfectly fits me.

After i ordered a second larkee wash 8xr ,from a well known online store with the same size (w30 l30) .I realized that even it was the same size,jeans size was not identical.It was longer and wider i think one size up.

Finally my first jeans say made in italy and second made in tunisia.So what should i do,what can i expect from diesel online?I just want to be sure for my order to choose the right size.

Thank you .

ps. sorry for my bad english

:-) even if you buy same model and same size, they will be not same because there is difference between washes, some runs big, small, some are mixed with elastane etc. There are known some washes, which runs BIG, e.g. 8AA (sizing down 1 or even 2 in waist) and some which runs very tight (sizing up was recommended) e.g. 71B

the sizing from the ones made in italy seems to be very consistent to me. i got my first pair of diesel's made in tuniasia a couple days ago. i am normally 30x32 in viker and that fits me great. these i got 31x32 cause deal was too good and only size available. i was really worried i'd have to return them because they'd be too loose. nope. the feel the same as the 30x32s i have that are made in italy. i think now i see what people mean about their quality going down due to some of the jeans being made outside of italy. there were a few other things that made the tuniasia pair 'not perfect' but again the deal was really good some it's not too big of a deal to me.  so i guess unless the waist band has the red green and white stitch you should be a little more cautious as these are made in other countries and the quality will prob not be as good!

You can't buy Diesel jeans online -- the sizing is just so inconsistent. Seriously, is as if the company is run by morons. I don't know why I continue to buy their jeans.

i think it varies so much cause of denim thickness and there is such a variety they use in denim types. can be frustrating but im glad they dont use the same sort of cotton blend for all their washes. variety is good. plus im sure the washes change the fit of the denim too. so even if it was the same cotton (oz, weave etc) if the wash was clean on one and highly treated it changes how it fits. there are tons of variables for denim. that's what i love about denim tho!
