just bought a pair of black samurai 710s and now thinking I'd prefer black dior 19cms
Super different cuts. I have indigo Samurai 710s and both indigo and black Dior 19cms, and the Samurais have a higher rise, looser thighs, and a wider leg opening. The denim is way, way nicer on the Samurais, and not necessarily comparable on my pair at 19oz vs. whatever the Diors are.
If you can find them, I'd say the Triple Works x Blue Owl tapered jeans are a step up from the Diors. The denim and details are way nicer, there's more room in the thigh, and there's more of a taper below the knee for better stacking (plus a shorter inseam for less stacking). There's some back pocket stitching that I'm not totally wild about, but it's tonal so not really noticeable.
Just check out the knit thread but honestly I think it just all depends on where you go
In the Bay, do you primarily stay around where you live or do you like to venture out because the weather is so diverse.
