I am looking to buy a pair of Dior Homme jeans, but not sure what size I should get. Are they true to size? To compare, I wear PDC's mostly in a 31 (LTD, SLM) 1 year GTO in a 32. Also Rag & Bone RB11 in a 30. Any suggestions?

I got a Dior pair in a 29" to get that skinny fit and when new they are perfect. In my experience they stretch quite a bit so they need to be washed often. I would buy your size, if they are snug to start they will give.

True size tends to be 2" or so larger than tagged size (ie. a 34" tag will actually measure 36") as they're designed to sit very low on the hips.

If you like them higher then size down, although they might not look right.

And please don't get them hemmed

Up to waist 31 Dior Homme jeans are skinny, in 32 they look like APC new standards or cure. Unless you're super slim I wouldn't bother getting them. I sold my size 31 Diors because I'm really a 32 and my left ball started to ache. You have been warned!

This is an example of too much information

alright, so i've decided to pull the trigger on a pair of dior 19cm, just can't hold out any longer...
question is, what size to get?
i wear apc ns in 28, jr cali no wash in 29, nudie sj in 29
i know from what people have said on here that diors are a bit bigger in the waist so that they sag, but when i tried on a pair of 29's, they were quite snug everywhere.
will they stretch out enough like the apc's?
or should i just get size 30?
thoughts?

i know this is an endless debate...but i really need some help

Mine have not stretched out and are still unconfortable in some areas. Not so much that i hate wearing them, i actually love them, but i would recommend you buy the 29s if they are snug.

if you don't mind me asking,
how tall/weight?
where did you buy them?
it's weird, some people say they stretch out quite a bit, yet yours didn't.
so all so confusing.

actually, my experience (with the latest S/S 06 raw Dior jeans) is that they're sized pretty much exactly as tagged: a size 32 measures 16" when laid flat and measured across the back.
