Helmut Lang - Italian cut?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
What does Italian cut mean in Helmut Lang jeans? How does it fit in comparison to Helmut Lang's Classic Cut? Thanks Dan

that's just the seller. theyre just using the phrase "european cut" to explain that it's not a sack suit.

Nah. It's on the label on the inside of the jeans. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT Dan

I would be extra-cautious. I will look at my own HL denim at home, it's a potential fake. Luc

The color is ugly - now, if they were really raw silk, like it says, as opposed to 100% cotton, then I think it would work better and they'd be an awesome summer pant. Helmut Lang jeans always (usually?) have that second label, I've just never seen the 'Italian Cut' before. I don't think they are fake. I asked the seller and he said something along the lines of "it's like a straight leg cut." Seems to me like it tapers slightly, perhaps being the middle ground between the 'Classic Cut' and the 'Boot Cut'. Dan

yes they do have that second label. Everything from hong kong look suspicious to me... Especially when I don't have a picture of the other label, the one with all the details. Luc

of my pairs of helmut lang denim, one pair does not have the second label, being the most recent pair i purchased at prada industrie, so i know it's authentic but maybe an overrun or second? whereby the second label was missed all the others do have the second label detailing the name of the cut

This probably doesnt matter anymore, but i have a pair of italian cut in classic denim. classic denims is not as rigid as the raw denim. The italian cut is very slim and tapered compared to the classic cut. I have both cuts of which i got from a local helmut lang boutique...

I've had a couple of pairs, and this is exactly how I would describe them. I lost the measurements in the crash, but the only discernable difference was a slightly wider leg (less than 0.5" difference from the classic cut). They had a very slight taper like the classic cut as well. I can't tell the difference when wearing them. EDIT: crap, didn't realize this thread had been resurrected.
