Dior Homme Denim

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Need some advice regarding repairs for mij raws. Had these babies since Feb 1st, worn nearly everyday and haven't been washed. Crotch is completely blown out. They are 30s, probably a size or 2 too small for me as I have pretty big thighs. Should I bother getting them repaired at self edge or comprable shop? I'd rather not buy another pair just yet. I stopped wearing them because I'm making it way worse.

Thanks in advance!

Im thinking of selling my MIJ Fuel to the Fire size 29. I had a few people who wanted to buy them from me previously but I forgot who they were at this point. So if you're interested then send me offers. Ill get some pics taken in a couple of days and list them in the market.

As someone who has extensively used both Denim Therapy and Schaeffer's Garment Hotel, I would say that depends on what kind of repair you want done. Denim Therapy does a great job but they are mostly for the True Religion/Diesel crowd who wants their jeans to just look better on the outside. They brag about their "color-matching" technique as if it were the end-all to denim repair, ignoring the fact that some people don't care about restoring the exact color of the surrounding blue (especially when it will continue to fade). Schaeffer's is more for the sufu type person who's concerned about stress reinforcement and what's going on inside. They do this crazy tough patchwork that has some synthetic fibers on the inner surface so that it can stretch while the exposed outer surface is still 100% cotton so that technically the fading can continue. They're like two extremes in my opinion. One isn't necessarily better than the other. Just depends on what you want for your jeans.

Hi guys, just have question :) I used to wear size 29 19cm MIJ washed but now I prefer raw more. Bad luck that I've never had any raw DH before :( I've read some posts before and people mentioned you should 1 size down for raw. But few days ago I went and tried on a MIJ raw from Kris. The fourth one from the left hand side:

There was no way I could fit size 28 for these, size 29 seems like perfect as it felt a bit tight, so later when it stretched out, it will be perfect. So are they differences between raws from Hedi and Kris? Or it just depends on each season?

What size do you think should fit me well for this raw from LVR, 28 or 29?

I'm 1.73m tall and 60-61kg, normal DH size 29 19cm. And what do you guys think about this MIJ raw from Hedi? Will it fit me well or will loose for me?

Thanks in advance guys and have a great day :)

Hi! Anyone out there knows how a UMC 08 fits?

I heard it runs big compared to other washed pairs. Is it true? I usually wear a 29 so im not sure if I should stick to a 29 19cm UMC 08 or to downsize to a 28 19cm model.

Any advice pls?

Price depends on the wash really... If you're buying a pair of raws at the price, then it's VERY pricey. Just look on www.Luisaviaroma.com and compare prices, at least that's what I do. You're buying a brand new pair though right? Cause if it's used and at that price, it's kinda pricey... if you look on like eBay, those Japanese auction sites or the SUFU market, you can easily find used Diors for cheaper.

Also if you don't want to blow the crotch area, don't wear it super tight.

Not familiar with this particular pair, but I'd imagine SS06, the season in which Hedi was super into suspenders.

It is hard to tell because the item is sold out so the picture is greyed out. It appears to be Leaden Sky, which is the pair of jeans I have for sale. You can get a better look at it at the link I posted above. The blue undertones are VERY hard to capture in pics without putting the flash right over the jeans. That is why leaden sky will normally look all black in photos when in fact there are very beautiful blue undertones to the black.

Im downsizing bro. I have sold off a lot of my collection recently. I want to just stay with my Jakes, my MIJ Raws, my Distress Oiled, and maybe one other pair. I love those three the most and I figure they will go with everything. My career wont allow me to wear jeans so I will only be wearing them on weekends soon. This just seems like something I'd like to do.
