Run larger; Lightweight denim; Ridiculously overpriced
on May 12, 2016
I cannot believe how large size 30 felt when I tried the jeans on! It was more like size 32. I normally buy Larkee and even they tend to run larger, but only a LITTLE. The sizing of Waykee, which I've never bought before, however, is totally off.
The jeans look ok. The denim weight (thickness), however, is light. I like my denim to be thick which is why I always buy Diesel, but it seems to me that these days even Diesel is starting to compromise on quality. These jeans, made in Romania, are not cheap! For this price, I would expect thick denim.
My advice: try the jeans on in a store, and then buy online! It's always a hassle to have to return something.
UPDATE: I bought recently 3 pairs of jeans directly from Diesel - 1 Larkee and 2 Safados - and I noticed that their denim was also lightweight. So, it's not just Waykee. I guess Diesel ditched the quality thick denim from the past. Cutting costs, while raising prices? I'm done with this brand. The prices they charge these days are ludicrous. Quality has gone south. So disappointed. Diesel used to be my favorite denim brand. They still have the best washes, but the denim itself (and that's what matters the most) is not good.
