RE: Diesel Viker 817G
Recently picked up the 817G Diesel Viker from Nordstrom Rack, and I'll either return or keep depending on your response. I also haven't worn jeans in years. For some strange reason, blue jeans were calling to me yesterday while browsing Nordstrom rack.
Just wanted to confirm a couple of things:
(1) It is the 817G Vikers that you have, right?
(2) Have the knees actually ripped on both pair of 817G Vikers that you bought? Are you still wearing them?
(3) How much do diesel jeans actually stretch out? And where do they stretch out?
(4) Did you size down for these (when I use to wear denim and browsed message boards discussing premium denim, a lot of individuals would suggest a person size down because in due time, they will eventually stretch). I made mistakes doing that in the past, but the diesels never really stretched. Sizing down was definitely a mistake I could do without. Had I chosen to go with comfort from the get go, I would probably still be wearing denim. This whole sizing down thing left a bad taste in my mouth.
The pair I recently picked up (actually yesterday), fits pretty comfortably from the get go. I've got room to move freely without feeling constricted in the thighs or seat area. Still fairly form fitting.
