Question about larkee-relaxed fit

I bought a pair of larkee relaxed last year (36 W) and found them to be a bit tight. My question is do all larkee relaxed jeans have the same fit , or does it vary from wash to wash. larkee relaxed is the only comfort fit I can find in the diesel line up so I am not left with much choice.

I don't know, but if Larkee-relaxed are tight on your legs, thighs, butt, etc then you must be a serious bodybuilder or something. I'm a solid, muscular guy who can't really even wear Larkee regular straights either, but had room in the Larkee-relaxeds. Now, if you're talking about the waist, that didn't seem relaxed... that seemed to be the same size as regular Larkees-straights.
Unfortunately, like I said, I don't really know the answer to your question, but I'm thinking maybe you SHOULD try another Larkee-relaxed wash.

Thanks Mark, I am not a bodybuilder or anything. Its just that I have muscular thighs and a fairly big behind, the worst part is I have a small waist. Anyway I like my jeans really comfortable and fairly loose, and larkee relaxed is the only thing that is remotely suitable in Diesel. Maybe I will give another pair a try.
Something I really don't get is why does'nt Diesel make more comfort fitting higher rise jeans? Most of the jeans they have out they are suited only for skinny boyish frames! What about guys who are more muscular and well built??

Totally true. And good question. I've thought about both many times.

I wear the Larkee-relaxed but a size 36. I have big legs and butt as well. Are you having any other luck with other brands/cuts? I like TR Rickys and RR Neil.

Larkee relaxed is the only current diesel that fits me. I normally wear a 36W but with Larkee relaxed I size it up to a 38. I just can't stand TR, the reason is I just don't like the low rise and thick denim stitching, and TR's are just not worth the money, they are way overpriced and their denim quality is bad. One good brand I recently discovered is G-Star. If , like me you like loose, comfort fitting jeans, they offer an awesome selection, I feel they are the only brand that comes close to diesel.

There's a bit of variance in the wash and where (Italy, Tunisia, etc.) they were made. I have Larkee 36x34 in a few washes. Some are looser than others.

if you like the style you can also try Pheyo. I have a pair and they are really loose on thighs. Some washes like 8SV are stretch too. Also, the price is good.

I just got two pairs of Quratt from Ebay, Quratt 8BM and Quratt 8FA, they fit great. I ordered my normal size (36W), finding comfort fitting diesel's is hard, there are very few cuts out there that really qualify as "comfort fit", I think I am going to give the larkee relaxed another try, we'll see how that goes.

I have a few pairs of Quratt in 36Wx34L. Let me know if you'd like pics & info on them. I also have two pairs of Levan in the same size which are roomy in the legs.
