Try searching Street Wear and Denim

Post if you don't find what you're looking for.

To be fair, when asking about a brand like Diesel one will likely get very different opinions here vs. SWD. However we do have the Denim 101 for Men's Clothing thread, where this sort of question could be answered.

My opinion, by the way, is that they're not what they once were; the washes, cuts and back pocket stitching have all gotten much more extreme and you can't really find a "regular old pair of $200 jeans" from them anymore.

I like you, timeless-style. I agree, yes, about the washes. And I stress the word, "Agree." I wish they would chill out on the wash. When I wear my motorcycle boots, however, Zathans are the brand that fit me so perfectly. I was wondering if you knew of a cleaner washed denim brand that has a leg opening similar to the Zathan. Do you?

When you say similar leg opening, are you referring to the width at the bottom or the fact that it has a fairly wide bootcut? You won't find a ton of the latter these days, since that's a less popular silhouette than it was a few years ago, but there are a few still. If all you are looking for is the 18in leg opening so that the jeans will cover your motorcycle boots then there are more options.

Would you not get more and better advice by posting this on the Street wear and Denim Forum?

Correct. I stopped wearing them maybe six or seven years ago when
they no longer offered anything in my fit that didn't look like it had been
in an "industrial accident"
