    Sort of an addendum to the best skinny jeans thread; which waist has exactly a 19cm (~7.5in) leg opening? I stupidly though that most sizes did, until I realized that made no sense. What does the leg opening measure on various other waists? This is mainly just b/c I'm curious...I know Rye has a couple sizes, and ayn has a pair; anyone else?

    I was under the impression that the leg opening measurements were from either the 30s or 32s, I can't remember which. 30 seems more fitting for Dior, but who knows.

    Yeah, a little digging on SuFu confirmed that. Was easier to find than I though - the DH thread is like 80 pages. Probably should have checked before I threaded...[​IMG]

    I think 31 or 30 has true 19cm, no? Let me check mine... ok, around 16.8cm (size 29). So I guess 31 or 32 would make more sense, not 30.

    Cool, thanks - maybe I misread the SuFu thread, or it could be a Jap/Ital thing...

    Yours look great, btw.

    Word from the sufu thread is that the japanese ones are a bit slimmer than the italians.

    28 on italians, 18.5 opening
    I don't know, maybe I just can't measure stuff... but that's a huge difference between italian and japanese ones. Just checked again and it's 17cm... weird. [​IMG] But to be fair, 18.5cm sounds more like a measurement on the 21cm ones... or at least it would make far more sense then. Edit: forgot to mention, mine are size 29...

    Do we still have the jeans measurement thing, I think I posted measurements for my dior/japanese denim size 29 19cm a while ago. They're from 2005 (F/W? I could check the tag) though so the fit might have changed...
