So I have been away for a while, perks of being a teacher means I get to do what I like for 6 weeks over the summer :-D
Back into the swing of things now though, and figured before I dive back into the WAYWT forum, I would post some fit pics of my new AW12 jeans and see what yall think....
1. Shioner 801A (31x30)
Worn with All Saints Tonic Crew, Diesel Belt, Paul Smith Leather Trainers.
Some of you may have seen me post a fit pic of these before, but as they are from the new season I figured I would include them in the thread. Based on the other jeans I have, I decided that Shioner was my best cut so I was pleased when I got these on the cheap. They are quite a thick denim and I have noticed that depending on the light, they can look either really dark or more of a blue colour. They stack really well and I am really pleased with them.
2. Chi-Tight B (31)
Worn with Fred Perry Knitted polo, Diesel woven Belt, Adidas Tweed Trainers.
I never owned a pair of Diesel Chi-Tight before, or any sort of chino that they do. These are the $348 pair which seems very excessive, although I did not pay that for them. They are cool, the pictures do not do them justice as you cannot really see the vertical composition of them, the 'Herringbone' look. I got these in a 31 and I am pleased with how they fit, but I believe they come in a standard length, so I have to turn them over once or twice. Very nice, but wouldn't pay retail for them.
3. Thanaz 660Q (31x30)
Worn with Topman Shirt, Diesel Belt, Clark 'Jink' suede shoes.
So I had a pair of jeans to exchange at Diesel, and as I dont have a store anyway near me, when I managed to get to a store I was hoping they would have all of the new stuff, but they didnt. As a result, I picked these up, and I am glad I did. They weren't on my wishlist, I was hoping for another new pair of Shioner or the Thavar 801C. Having tried these on in store and wearing them since, they have grown on me. The herringbone effect is awesome and they fit pretty much like any other Thanaz I have. Really Pleased.
4. Thanaz 660S (31x30)
Worn with Diesel BG Tee, Diesel Belt, Vans Black Leather.
Again, I got these at less than retail and took a punt, Not really sure how I feel about them to be honest. They are quite a thin denim although the vertical composition is very noticeable as you can see. I think it is the colour more than anything that puts me off. They are definitely a grey jean and despite the tint of blue above, you rarely see this IRL. Opinions?
5. Krooley 888R 'Blue Eyecon' (31x30)
Worn with Diesel 'Jaylin' Jacket, Primark Tee, Diesel woven Belt, Navy Vans.
I know these are past season, but put these in here as they are also new for me. Krooley is not usually my cut, but they always seem to get some awesome washes that you cant get in Shioner/Tepphar/Thavar. I have had several pairs of Krooley in the past and had to sell them on, as a lot of them havn't had the 3D effect so have stacked pretty poorly on me (8X9, 8YM and 880W). These were different in the sense that they came with the factory stacking and had the 'twisted' 3D look in the leg, which I liked. I dont think they look too bad. My usual Krooley size was a 30 so I got these in a 31 so they wouldn't emphasise my thighs as much, and I think it worked. Opinions?
I think Im pretty happy with my collection now, I think I am up to about 25 pairs and some are starting to get neglected. Still have a few on my wishlist (Tepphar 804K, Thavar 888P, Thavar 8NE, Thavar 801C, and Shioner 805A) but i'm in no rush. Will hopefully pick then up discounted. :-D
