    I've seen one. It is a light brown color, almost dark khaki, MII, not sure which cut but I would guess 19cm.

    I wear 28 in 19cm or 17.5cm cut. I don't think the waist size or thighs are different, it's only the leg opening and back rise IIRC (.5" higher in 19 cm cut).

    The SoHo store in NYC is receiving the first A/W14 pieces next week, so they could maybe send you a picture if you're interested and based out of Australia.

    I see. I wonder if the Dior boutique here is going to have any AW14 pieces soon. I plan on going on Wednesday to cop a pair of blue jeans. Do you have any experience with the current season blue jeans?

    Hi there, quite new to the forum and a big fan of how Dior Homme blazers are cut. I'm 18 and am looking at buying a dior homme blazer online and have been wondering what size to purchase due to the slim cut. I always thought that I was a eu46, but upon measuring myself I found my measurements aligning with that of an eu48? (In terms of purely chest size at least)

    I looked online that most suits are cut with a 6inch drop from chest to waist but my measurements are:

    Chest: 38 inches
    Waist: 29.5inches
    Circumference of Torso (I.e. overarm - chest+shoulders) : 44inches

    at 5ft9 and 66kgs

    I dont know how relevant the 'drop' is as I am only interested in a blazer and dont know if that is factored into how the suit is cut.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    - Thanks

    I hate to say it but you're probably more if a 48 with some alterations to take the body in and maybe a half inch off the length.

    I say hate to say it because the 46 would look better for now but you're right in between and if you grown even a little more the blazer may pull in places and be too tight on the shoulders.

    Thanks for the help!
    I dont think i'd want to get it altered as i'm always too worried it'll come out badly. I found a blazer form ss10 with measurements of s2s:16.5" and p2p 19.5" so figured that would fit but it sounded quite big for a eu46. I guess i'll just pass and wait till I totally finish growing, which is a shame...

    Ah well, someday

    If it helps, you should have no problem selling a 46 Dior blazer if you end up growing out of it. That's the most popular size.

    If your chest is 38 inch w/o shirt on 19.5inch would probably be tight if you button it down wearing more than just a tee. Then again it depends since its a little down of you actual chest. it that makes sense/

    Looks good to me. Logo looks correct, stitching all makes sense, even the size lettering on the inside is the format they use for other shoes.

    The only thing that threw me was a) the zipper and b) the size of the heel, both of which I've never seen before (i.e., that style and the 2.5"), but maybe it's just a unique style or something only sold in Europe or Japan.

    Price is about 40% what I'd expect for them, so I hear you that you may be a little suspicious but the seller has great feedback. Good luck! They look great and easy to wear.

    I took a gamble and I will return them if the quality isn't what i'd expect from dior homme. Thank you for the quick reply again SirGrotius, you are always willing to help with your wealth of knowledge!

    The basics rarely do, the seasonal ones do during the end of season sales, at department stores at least. The Dior Homme boutiques no longer have sales, apparently.

    Looking for something in particular, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Does anyone in here know where one can find a skinny light washed and lighter weight denim with a long inseam (36"+) I feel like Diors my only option, but I can pay 700$ for jeans. I would go as high as 300 for the perfect pair. My waist is usually like 33 and I need at least a 36 inseam. I usually buy naked and famous skinny guys bc they are 37" but for the summer I don't want raw denim. I want a prewashed light faded look. Thanks!

    Great question, the only ones in that price range and length that come to mind are raw denim.
