    I'm wondering how Diesel typically cuts their jeans. I want to replace a pair of mine because they are now too big for me, but I'm weary of what size to purchase online, due to the fact that every label cuts differently. The style is 'Roody' if that helps.

    Each Diesel model has a different cut. Check the website, go to the section for denim, then there should be an overview of all the different models. There is a small description that describes the cut.

    Overall, Diesel jeans seem to be cut on the slim side, though there are a few models (I think Macrowill is one) that is cut fuller.

    I'm not sure which jeans they currently sell this season, but the X-Rotuck, Jeeves, and Zathan are very slim cut, the Rabox is a semi-slim cut. They also make a 'Kuratt' model, which seems to be a regular cut, though still on the slim side.

    The style I'm referring to is 'Roody'. I'm not sure if they still sell it directly. There's an auction on Ebay right now with the exact ones I have, just in my size this time.

    I'll check the Diesel website. Although last time I went there, all the flash animation had my head (and computer) spinning.

    H_R,

    For some reason I thought you said you had a pair of Roody's right now that didn't fit, and you were looking to replace them with another model.

    I have a booklet of Diesel jeans styles that I got from a store a year or two ago. The Roody is in there. It says 'medium low rise, zip fly, bootcut leg'. On the model, it looks like they have a slimmer fit on the thigh and a looser fit at the bottom (like any other bootcut jean).

    If you were asking what numerical size to buy, here's my input. I find diesel jeans to fit a bit larger in the waist. I have two pairs of Rabox in 31 Waist and a pair of X-Rotuck in a 30 Waist. Normally I take a 31, and the Diesel 31 fits more like a 32. The X-Rotuck seems to fit like a 31 in the waist. I'd recommend NOT going down a size, however, because then the thighs might be a bit too tight.

    All I really have to go off of are most of my jeans which are 29's, and the Dior pair I bought in Paris, which are a 30. Although, I tried on another Dior model there at the store in a 29, and they fit fine. I suppose a 29 in Diesel will be okay then? The auction ends tomorrow.

    Yeah, a 29 should work out fine.
