Since I haven't mentioned it before, i want to say that I really appreciate this thread.
Your informative content is a great contribution to this forum, that's the kind of stuff that keeps the Diesel boards going!
You seem to have a great love for details and you're willing to make an effort with threads like this, so thank you! :)
One question regarding your Polluce pants: How did they turn out after sizing up?
Looking at your pictures really makes me want to get a pair myself, especially since I've been searching for a pair of nice, slim fitting dark grey pants for a long time.
I`m glad that i can return somehow the help i myself am receiving from the boards, also thank you for the kind words.
Now regarding the Polluce pants: first of all i should say that i consecutively tried on 3 sizes : W28 , W29 and W30 and they were almost the same in length. i`ll now post the measurements i took on every pair so you can make an idea (look for the centimeter sizes for exact measurements):
W28 - waist 16" (40,5cm) / lenght 36" (91,5cm) / hem 6,5" (17cm)
W29 - waist 16,5" (41,6cm) / length 36 1/8" (92cm) / hem ~6,5"(17/17,5cm) (there was a slight difference between each hem)
W30 - waist 16 3/4" (42,7cm) / length 36 1/4" (92,3cm) / hem 7" (17,7cm)
Now let me get through each pair and tell what was the feedback :
The material composition is 50% wool / 48% polyester / 2% elastane so keep in mind the itchy factor from the wool (obviously this could be a personal matter/taste, but in my case i could tell that the smaller the size was the itchier the feeling i got because of the tighter fit). However the material is soft and nice to touch.
W28 : Now this being the tightest of the sizes i tried (keep in mind that the tightest part of the pants is the calf area), and the fact that all the pairs run short (at least for my height = 1,82cm), everytime i was sitting on a chair , the leg hem would go up high on the ankle, and when returning in the standing position they wouldn`t fall back down (they would stay fixed on the calf area and need to be pulled down with your hands). This was the main reason i exchanged them with a bigger size, also hoping for a longer leg (which turned not to be the case as they were almost the same size in length). Also, they were a little small in the waist, especially if i wanted to tuck in a shirt.
As it can be seen in the picture, this is the tightest area :
W29 : They were perfect in the waist this time, i could wear them lower on the waist to gain a little more length, but still too short for what my desire was. Again, the tightness on the calf haven`t disappeared completely, and now they are begining to flare at the hem as it increases with bigger sizes...
The flare thing which you will next see it got even worser in W30:
W30 : Now the waist is kinda loose, the pants are starting to look baggy, the flare on hem got even worse (they look like flared jeans from 70'-80' or something like that) and they still are not the right length, so at this point i`m giving up on them as they are obviously for other body type than mine Now I`m going to search for this type of fashion pants in other brand...
I even tried them with some high tops, just for the sake of it to see how it looks
It`s just that they won`t work in cold weather so it`s a dead end either
Now i hope you can make an idea about the fitting, excuse my late response as i needed to recall all the memories of how they fitted me at the times i tried them on, and the english is also giving me a little hard time
