Is it just me or does it often seem like Diesels that are 27-29 waist / 30-32 inseam are often listed higher or have higher buy it now prices than larger sizes? I swear I keep running across waist sizes 34+ for way less than the 28x30 that I'm after. Ramble ramble ramble....
Smaller sizes, Higher prices

Well, I mean, look at the demographics of this forum (or the Wanted ads)--my guess is that most of the guys who are here first gravitated towards Diesel and other brands of premium denim simply because they were outside the size ranges usually served by "regular" brands. Other guys may care a lot about their appearance (as evidenced by the amount of $ they spend on clothing) and that translates to watching their weight.
The same thing goes on at AF with the girls, which was why I never found my size 30-32 pairs to sell very well there. Most of them are either too tall and thin to fit into regular jeans, which drew them to high-end denim in the first place, they come from ethnic/cultural groups that are traditionally both small-built and brand-conscious, or they're really careful about their weight (that'd be me, although I'd never be considered "petite"--my denim collection definitely motivates me to diet so that they fit!)
