What Men Want: Dior Homme Jeans





Needless to say, not unlike many other women, I find Jude Law mildly attractive but there was something about these jeans that caught my attention, so I decided to investigate a little further. The jeans are by Dior Homme, the menswear division of Christian Dior SA, which has been designed by Kris Van Assche since Spring 2008.

While not inexpensive, as prices range from the high two hundreds to almost one thousand dollars, Dior Homme jeans are reputed as some of the best on the market despite notoriety for a very slim-fit. Rumor has it Karl Lagerfeld once lost 90 pounds just to fit into a pair of Dior pants!

Rinses range from white to classic to black, and all shades in between, giving even the most discriminating of men a variety of choices. Most styles are five-pocket classic, but there are a few that feature two back patch pockets with three front classic pockets. All styles feature a hook closure with a concealed button fly. The rise on Dior Homme jeans is either 21 or 22 centimeters (8.27 or 8.66 inches) but the hems range between 17.5 and 21 centimeters thus giving the slim fit. Personally, I like the styling Van Assche gives to his jeans. For instance, there is a black paint mark on the left leg of Write Me Soon, faded areas and bleach marks on Mondays Off, darker dyed areas on Dark Clouds, and zippers surrounding the waist of Zip It. These details show innovation, something to make something so ordinary extraordinary. And when wearing something 100% of the world’s population probably owns, what’s not to love about a little stylish individualism?
