After many pointed out that my first attempt at dior was a failure, I decided I would give it another shot. Sz. 29 was way too fucking tight, so I bought a pair of black raws in sz. 30. These had been preowned but unsoaked. Huge difference from the 29's. I've read that there is not a huge difference from 29->30 in the thigh, but I beg to differ; its like night and day. 29s cut off my leg circulation, 30s are slim but super comfortable all the way down. Unfortunately, the waist is too big (aligned is 17") making them unwearable without a belt. Should I just suck it up and wear a belt? Should I have let my 29s stretch more before selling? Will these shrink after a soak? Does the fit still suck and I should just give up? Obligatory pics:
29s i sold:
Unsoaked but preowned 30s i just bought: No belt-- belt-- for the right price ill sell these. hit me up with your offers!

29s looked way too tight. The 30s seem to fit fine everywhere but the waist, just wear a belt.

obviously the dude who owned these jeans before you wa a little bit larger than you and stretched them past what wouldve worked for your frame

you can keep those 30s as your fat stretched out jean and just buy another new sz. 30 and have that stretch out to conform toyour body

or you can just give up on the dior 19cm as it doesnt seem to suit you very well.

I agree with this, except for the last sentence. I actually like how it looks on you, other than the belt, which I don't like at all.

What's your waist/hip measurement where you wear your jeans, and how does that compare to the waist of the jeans? They look like they might be up to a 34" or 35", while you are probably around 32-33" at the hip.

i think diors look best anti-fit slouched on pretty thin guys. your 30s do not look like diors. they look ok but, for the money, you can do much better. for half the price, i'd recommend sagging some apcs. your first fits in the 29 when you sagged were looking more like the way they should be. not sure what they'd look like stretched. for over $200, it's a pricey bet.

dude, your ass is too big, and what I mean by that is stop trying to fit your normal ass into jeans designed for anorexic people. There are plenty of good skinny jeans that will complement your figure. Give up.

the original ones looked much better and would have most likely stretched even more for a perfect fit. Ahh well.

At first they looked a little too tight, now they look like they don't fit.

29's looked better for sure.
