What Diesel are you wearing today? - Page 796

post #19876 of 29050
@ Raj - Yes they are stretch, and I'm sure you fit into them great, but they don't flatter your frame. No offense at all meant, I'm envious actually. But your broad shoulders should be balanced out by a larger hem or straighter cut rather than such a drastic taper. Not that you can't wear slim jeans and look good, but not that skinny.

Again, not trying to offend, just my thoughts.

I get what you mean, my first choice was Rombee XT but Asos wouldn't ship to my mail forwarder. And I guess I loved this wash too much to pass it up but yeah point taken.

post #19878 of 29050

Great outfits here!

 

Yesterday I wore:

Poiak 008PI

Replay sweatshirt

Lacoste Sport shoesIMAG0672.jpgIMAG0669.jpg

post #19879 of 29050

zgdiesel those Poiak look great. Not usually a fan of that cut but you wear them well!

post #19880 of 29050

whats not to like about that cut? it would look good on you actually

post #19881 of 29050

To be honest, it's not the cut really, I don't really like the back pockets thats all.

post #19882 of 29050

I took photos of my Poiak to sell over the weekend but then looking at them again I'm like they are so cool.. so I decided to keep it. hahahahahaha..  I just rarely wear it cuz I dont want the zipper to break off..

 

Wearing the Tepphar 884M today..   i love the minor details like the leather coin patch.

@ Februrian - huh, they look very tight. Personally, not into that.

 

@ Levislad - thanks man! The pockets details are something that I actually like! I think that they'd fit you very good, as Jeanetic said.

 

@ Jeanetic - you're definitely right! 

 

@ Denim Collector - glad to change your opinion, don't sell them. They're so cool! Great fit on Tepphars!

post #19884 of 29050

Again since they're stretch wash and this was the first time I was into them, so they won't look so tight eventually.

Just as a heads up, stretch denim doesn't really change shape or size. 100% cotton jeans are meant to be broken in, stretch jeans are meant to hold their shape. And that wash in particular has 18% elastane, which is way more than the usual 2%.

Whether or not you like the fit, they aren't going to change much, if at all. But if you do, then that's all that matters.
post #19886 of 29050

Good shit they won't change their shape!

post #19887 of 29050

Raj, dont sweat it, your fit is fine man.  The wash is so fucking amazing that its all worth it.

 

Today,

 

Tepphar 883e,

Zara white dress shirt,

Tommy Hilfiger tie

Exactly

post #19892 of 29050

Its great to see everyone on Denim Blog and I have gained many great ideas since I joined in January. I immediately rid myself of all my TR's and boot cuts and have been excited and delighted to buy Diesel Larkee, Safados, Thavars & Timmen also Nudie and PRPS.

 

Jeanetic, I totally agree with you if we are getting to a regular "Uniform" of how to look cool but its also nice to keep some individuality.

 

Haha Jeanetic, when I go showing my chickens I wear these, hand painted by myself. How horrrifying are these?

 

@ Numa1978 .. stunnning colour on those Iakop 882V .. looking good

Those chickens are awesome, not sure I like the jeans they are on, but they look great in themselves.

@zgdiesel,levislad and Dsense99, Thanks guys for the positive comments.

@Raj Hardia, shit man, you're on a mission. Go for it!

post #19895 of 29050

Ok so here's my 881W, love how they fit. They were tight like my 887V on the first wear, so it's quite apparent that they stretched a lot. You don't need to be skinny to wear tepphars.

Also today I was wearing Thavar 888P for the night out. Love... LOVE these!

What jeans with 2% or 18% elastane do you own? Also, you're not actually saying that stretch jeans hold their shape better than 100% cotton jeans? 

post #19898 of 29050

@ Raj - sorry man, I personally don't like such tight jeans on not so skinny legs. But that's just my opinion and attitude, it doesn't mean that is right. I think that some more wider cut fitted you much better. But if you like how they look, just go for it man! Anyway, both great washes!

@ Denim Collector - perfect fit man!

post #19899 of 29050

@denim-guy- Well you gotta stand up for what's right. Tepphars really suit you despite you having broad shoulders but i'm sure Msalonen disagrees on this.

 

@Denim Collector- Your 881W look pretty good too. 888P is a must-have wash, I wouldn't have got these if they weren't on sale, so glad I did plus got my desired yellowish pair so I'm super stoked.

 

@zgdiesel- It's alright man. I had issue with 887Vs being called super-tight or whatever considering how they are stretch wash and worn for the very first time. I mean they certainly won't be "so tight" after having worn enough times.

I'm not trying to turn this into an argument, I was only trying to clear up any misconceptions of stretch denim.

 

Most of my jeans are 2% stretch, because I prefer it that way. There aren't many jeans made for men with elastane blend as high as 18% to my knowledge, usually that's more common for women's jeans. And I'm not saying that relates in any way to gender or looking manly or girly, just what's more common for cotton blends in jeans as a whole. They do it that way because most jeans for women are very skinny, or are jeggings (which are usually around 20% elastane or more).

 

I'm also not saying that jeans with some elastane in them don't stretch over time. All cotton stretches over time. But it's going to be very minimal compared to 100% cotton denim. The more stretch to the denim, the more it will keep it's shape. That's the whole point. The stretch allows it to stretch to fit your body and snap back to original shape when you're not wearing them. Just like the way a rubber band would work. Pure cotton on the other hand can only shrink back when you wash it, otherwise it just grows and stretches out over time as much as it needs to or can before tearing. They don't have the same "give".

 

If you like the jeans, great. I'm only trying to help. And if you disagree with my opinion of the fit, then that's totally fine. I was just being honest. If you like it, you can rock it. That's what style is all about.
