What's up guys. Im new to this but I'm going to New York this upcoming may and my goal is to get a nice black skinny fit denim, so I've been asking around and from a lot of different people I've been getting recommend to try out the 19cm MIJ dior denim.. I just need some tips and advice from people who actually own a pair already.. Thanks in advance
I want to know what retail stores I need to hit up in New York that will maybe carry them, I'm normally a 32 waist 34 length skinnies. So I wanna know if I need to size down or what how does that work? And also what does "MIJ" stand for and the "19cm" what's so special about those specs?
Mij= made in japan. 19cm is the cut, I believe it's the leg opening on a size 32..same goes for the rest of the cuts. Most people size down but youre going to be trying them on so you dont need much sizing advice. They do stretch tho.
LckyCharmsBoy is right, 19cm is the leg opening on a pair of size 32 jeans. the 19cm cut is more tapered, while the 21cm cut is a more straight leg.
majerle_marl, as far as stores go, you could go to the Dior Homme flagship, Barney's, or Saks. generally Saks is known to carry more sizes, so I would suggest trying there first. usually you want to size down 2 from your normal waist size, so you should be a tagged size 30 in black MIJ raws if you're a true 32 waist. they generally stretch about 2 sizes, so a size 30 should be a perfect fit after it stretches fully (~2 weeks of wear). you should be able to get all the buttons done and barely be able to do the clasp. when I first got mine, I left the clasp undone for a couple days until the denim stretched to the point where I could do the clasp comfortably. the length on a pair of raw Diors is about 37in, but most people let them stack around the ankles. it takes a bit of fiddling with the stacks when you first get them, but they look very nice once they settle, so most people do not bother hemming unless they are really short/are opposed to stacks.
hope this helps, and hope you find the pair you're looking for.
