post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have these? Was wondering the sizing since its 80% cotton 20% elasterell (stretchy polyester).

 

Should I size up, down, regular?

 

TIA

I also would like to know how tepphar fits. I like tepphar 8y0 but im a little scared in buy it.

I read some review and i wondering if tepphar is really too skinny.

Does anyone bought tepphar to answer this questions?

It fits slightly tighter than thanaz at the waist/thigh area, not so much that it is uncomfortable. The leg / leg opening area is about an inch smaller than thanaz.

 

This is all in the same stretch size. hope this helps.

 

[edit] Also, the tepphar sits slightly higher than the thanaz

 

If someone can chime in on the 8W3 wash...

For my 100% cotton Tepphars (the turbos), they're quite a bit slimmer than Thanaz.  When I first got them, I had to push hard to get my heel through the leg opening, if that gives you an idea of the tightness.  If you can rock jeans that tight, I think they look great, but keep in mind that they're a LOT more slim than Thanaz.

ok, so maybe I was on something when I tried tepphar 8y0 the first time, purchased my thanaz size (29x32) and are these friggin things tight from the knees done. I think I will have to size up 1 for all tepphar. Just a point of reference for those that are interested.

By sizing up you will only get a larger waist size, the lower legs and leg openings will stay that tight. Trust me, I tried the 8W3 and 8Y0 Tepphars from size 29-31. The tightness from knee downwards was all the same, only with different waist and thighs above.

 

If you really don't feel comfortable with the Tepphar, you should just stay with good old Thanaz or Thavar ^^ ;D

I agree that the tepphar legs are substantially tighter than thanaz / thavar. I did try a size 30 for the 8y0 and the legs did fit a tad looser than 29s. I'm just worried that the waist will stretch disproportionately after some wear. I think I will hold on to a tepphar purchase till I loose some leg fat lol

I tried the 8W3 on at one of the Diesel stores today and I did not like the feel of the jeans. The fit was perfect, even better than the 8Y0 wash, but the denim was too raw/rough and it felt "sticky" for a lack of a better term.

Quick update. So I tried and purchased a pair in my usual stretch diesel size 29w. These fit substantially looser around the waist / thigh area for those that are interested.
