Yep. Zippers on back mean 18CM. No zipper means 17/16CM depending on year.

That was me. Is this the version sans SUPREME? How much was it, if you dont mind

Every pair of Balmain jeans I own, in all different sizes, or I have ever seen in the last 3 years have zippers on the back pockets.

It's random, some 17cm have zipper too and I've seen 18cm without zipper.

Actually those are 18, I have the exact same pair. Did you buy them off someone? A lot of people buy them and get them tailored. Myself included.

No, they are not. I know the size of the pants I have bought. Don't make assumptions.

I got mine brand new, the measurement are a little over 17cm so I'm not 100% sure if they are 17 or 18. but there are another pair I see on luisaviaroma that they stated 17cm and have back zip pocket also.

No need to assume, I know I'm correct lol. Decarnin used 18CM and 16CM. I have pairs from 2010 and up. He always used zippers on 18CM because he felt they were loose enough to accommodate zippers on back without feeling uncomfortable. He never used zippers on 16CM because of how tight they were, he knew they would be uncomfortable to wear. Rousteing followed this same concept, except he brought 17CM into picture.

Those are actually 17.5, but LVR rounds down on sizing. Like the 16CMs they have posted are actually 16.5. They do that so you think the jeans are slimmer than they are. It's dumb as hell. I actually had that pair sent to me and they fit like my 18CM ones from last season.

The cut I got is labeled as a slim cut, and I think the fit is perfect. It's obviously going to be a bit tigher on the first wear, but after about an hour or two of wear mine stretched out nice. My only gripe is the fact that now that I have them, my Nudies just aren't the same anymore, and I don't want to be heading down to Barney's every month to buy new bikers. laugh.gif

I haven't landed a pair just yet..  But I am afraid of that myself..  I switched nudie style from Average Joe to Straight ALF now my Average Joe's just aren't the same to me..  smh..  With the Balmains I will be slimming down a little bit more..

I can't speak to the 16cm, but all the 17cm I have seen have zippers. I'm guessing your another troll who just joined yesterday to try to argue with people for fun. You have no idea what your talking about, and I'm blocking you now to avoid any future non-sense from you.

Lolllllllllll

Knee down is good usually. But everyone has their own preference!
post #11511 of 18329
If LVR does round down, then a 17.5 is still not an 18, therefor the statement all jeans with zippers are ONLY 18cm is incorrect. So telling me my 17.5 cm jeans are 18cm, if that's the case is incorrect as well.

Wait, I'm confused, you said zipper only 18cm have zipper, I'm sure mine are not, they are either 17 or 17.5 and so as the Luisaviaroma pair.

lol hard to explain without being there to demonstrate and I'm telling you the pair you have is definitely 18. I remember when they came out, I had to go down a size in them like all my other 18's and have the legs tailored.

LVR Rounds down on their sizes.

18CM is 18.5
17CM is 17.5
16CM is 16.5

See LVR is slick because they tell you the size is slimmer when in all actuality it isn't (slim is hot so slim sells). That's why it's best to go try a pair on in store somewhere.

I can double check when I get home but I measure them last week and the measurement are a little over 17cm, almost 17.5 but definitely not 18. Or are you saying that all the pair thats 18cm are actually 17.5 cm?

This one is actually completely different from the Supreme version. This one is an actual bomber and the Supreme one is a thin cotton jacket. Fit is also different, this one runs a lot smaller more cropped fit. Retail is $520
