By the way what are you guys take on good denim jeans? It seems like these days people get caught up with the name instead of actually choosing quality denim.

I'm a denim addict! It's all about the fit, wash and the feel of the denim. I love Diesel for those 3 things and Dior for fit. I like some G Star jeans as well.
But that's the thing I never understood,what's really talk about with any jean then? With the popularity of Balmain jeans specifically the rage/ talk of jeans really flared up again I think amongst the fairly fashionable. Granted a couple years ago jeans like Nudie, PRPS Jeans, Sugar Cane Jeans, etc were pretty big amongst the really in search of the quality denim heads however to me it seems like jeans too are now a trend instead of quality. While, I'm sure Balmain for example make some great jeans is the price really worth it when stacked up to other brands?
I would like to know this as well. Like I said, I'm a denim addict and so far out of all the jeans I've owned/tried Dior is the best. I would love to try Balmain but if they are on par with Dior I'd stick with Dior simply because they are cheaper.
I am sorry but Diesel & GStar aren't on the bottom of the barrel when it comes to premium denim.
Balmain probably isn't worth it's retail price, it is a luxury item and one of the most expensive brands at that. You really pay for the design. I mean quality is still there but you can find jean of the same quality for half the price but once you feel the denim, you can see it is thick and well made. You also really can't find the style if that is your thing. I mean Rogue made some that looks like Balmains moto jeans, I got them for around ~$80 but quality isn't on par, not even close. I have many jeans/pants on rotation so it doesn't got much wear but after 2-3 wearing on te Rogue, the rivets were falling off and it looks like it'll rip instead of stretch.
Dior is much cheaper so the quality to price ratio is much closer but Dior provides another example of paying for something you do not find on any other brands out there, the cut. I still find the cut unique on the Diors and if that is your preference, then the cost is worth it. QUality isn't something to sneeze at either, at least the Made in Japan ones, I read that Made in Italy versions quality is a notch below but still good overall.
As for Dior & Balmain, I found Balmains denim thicker, heavier and quality seems a bit better, does it reflect the 3x-5x it's cost in comparison to Diors? Likely not you will never find moto style jeans with Diors. Keep in mind that the Balmain I handled might be thicker for that season, there are some thinner ones too with distressing and rip. In the end, you really just have to weigh-in your options and get what you like/want.
Lmfao I gained like 10lbs also use to fit in 32's now im wearing 34's got to hit the gym soon don't feel left out. My girl is at fault for that I always blame her, that damn pasta with lobster and shrimp she cooks. She makes that bangin penne vodka with coconut ciroc With a mean sauce.
That's exactly what I'm after. Rappers and stylists cleaned out the NY store, and the department shop that carries them here didn't order the black. Everywhere online is sold out, RSVP got both two weeks ago and last Friday, gone (in black). I just hit my friend to do a pickup at one of their stores, but he's leaving for NY in the early AM. Pretty much my only option is to do a phone order or find someone else.
If I find a website that sells the black ones, I'll let you know. What size you looking for?
