Help me get a fit, please?!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Been looking for a good straight fit for a month now nearly. From Levis to Armani to everything under the sun. I have big thighs and a prominent seat, I think. I'm just after some smart nice jeans. Today, I came across the Diesel Larkee which I think to date is the best fit I've had. Looking for feedback before I drop the cash on 4-5 pairs in the dark washes I want to wear these with shirts and jackets to the office.


Need hemming, I know. But will buy a close length and have tailor take them up.

If these aren't a good fit, where else can I look to get a decent fit?

Maybe Waykee could be an option for you IMO. Check this link

Could you tell me why / why these aren't a good fit?

Kind regards,

they look a little too baggy. can you go down one size in the waist? waykee is pretty comparable fit to larkee.

WOW. I wasn't expecting to hear that. As you can see my top block is huge.
I could size down and squeeze in but doubt it would do me any favours.



This is the Darron - as you can see, way too slim and what not.

Is the Waykee just a taper down from the knee? I'll be nearby the store in a few days so can report back with pics. Likely to order them online as have the wash options and can think about what to pair them with.

I thought the butt was still tight on these.

Thanks for the help icon_smile.gif

If you see what I mean, quite tight the Darron so a full size down Larkee I don't think will do me any favours icon_sad.gif

I¨m not saying these are not a good fit per se but if you want to wear these with shirts and jackets in a more dress up environment Waykee will be a better option. I would recomend 806u and 73N washes perfect for work.

Dont size down :D

I hear what you're saying icon_smile.gif
Had a look at the cours online and could source three to four nice dark blue washes to go with a navy blazer and a lighter pair to wear with boots in winter.

What's the fit like? Will likely get a chance in a few days? A taper down would look damn good to me, struggled to get a slimmer jean so far. Just can't afford to go slimmer in the seat lol or it won't look good

Will likely get a chance to try them on In a few days. Are there any other fits I should look at for a fit just in case? With the top block the Larkee offers and a slimmer calf maybe?

Just do I can get in and get out. Can't say I've not had enough of trying stuff on now lol

I think that Koolter should be perfect for you cause it is  like krooley in the legs`( close not the same ) and then tapers down to something like belther  but size up 1 ( or maybe 2 )from your krooley size you can always use a belt if it is too lose in the waist.

 

Koolter 8x2

Imma try the Wakeey ASAP. Atm this is the best fit I have above so likely go for that or Wakeey of the taper works for me :P.

I can't squeeze into slim jeans haha, even in a size up. Seat is important as I'm just about fitting the Larkee and Larkee Relaxed are nowhere to be found here and with a size 7 shoe, the bigger leg opening is gonna look daft xD

Koolter is not really slim despite the tag, just a little bit maybe. you can give them a try at least. I know that because my brother wears krooley and koolter they fit pretty similar in the upper block.

 

good luck and post pics

Tried the Waykee today and seems better from leg down. Thing is I didn't get any pictures as I was being 'pushed' and wasn't able to snap. Was just wondering if the top block is the same as the Larkee as never thought to asess the top block poperly, just knee down. If it's slightly slimmer, I'll likely stick to the LARKEE. If the same, I'll take the Waykee in a few washes.

 

Thanks for any advice - trying to save myself another drive here for my being lazy! Have looked online but can't seem to get any measurements :(
