I have a pair of Italian denim 21 cm Dior jeans in size 28 sitting on my table right now. I ordered them recently, and went with the 21 cm thinking that they would actually be smaller than that on the size 28. Not so. They're pretty baggy on me. I've seen the pictures of the guy on Superfuture with the 21 cm diors, and they look nothing like that. I'm set to return them for a pair of 19 cm, but I have a problem. I can get the 19 cm in either Japanese or Italian denim. I was thinking about going with the Japanese denim, just because it's nicer (in theory), and being a denim nut is about wasting your money on things no one will care about but you. I've seen some claims, however, that the Japanese and Italian denim models fit differently, with the Japanese model being much tighter. I think that a 7.5" hem (roughly 19cm) is a good look on me. That's what my Mics are, and they fit me great. The Dior I have now, though are an 8" hem and they are WAY too baggy on me. Not fitted at all in any part of the leg. Will the 19 cm Italian jeans be too loose, but with a taper? Will the Japanese 19 cm do the 'getting-smaller-with-smaller-sizes' thing I hear about, and end up being a sub 7" hem? Inquiring minds want to know your thoughts and opinions. I realize I probably won't get any hard facts, but conjecture is welcome.
