Diesel Turbo Denim - Larkee

I am a new poster.

I picked up a pair of Diesel Turbo Denim yesterday. Will update in the next few days with fresh pictures.

Special note, these are the first pair of Diesel with selvage and "raw" that I have come across

First Pic

Not the best picture, but I wanted to upload something.
Day 3 at work. They're getting some good wear since I live in NYC and walk everywhere.

Quick question. I am being a bit paranoid, but the waistband is still a little tighter than I would like it to be. The rest of the fit is perfect. Do you think the waist with stretch more?

I will upload a picture of the selvedge soon.

Did you size down at all? I am thinking of getting a pair of these (the Koolter fit) and am curious how you think I should size them

The folks at Diesel seem to be convinced that the turbo denim does not stretch as much as other raw denim brands. I.e. A.P.C. (Even though there slightly different from traditional raw denim)

They claim that they stretch aprox. half an inch in the waist.

With the Koolter, I suggest true to size for a regular/ slightly slim fit. For a more traditional skinnier fit, I think sizing down one size is a good idea.

Unfortunately, about half and hour after the previously posted picture, the main button on the jeans ripped off.

I called diesel and they are holding new ones for me. They handled everything satisfactorily.

Unfortunately, I will have to start the progress over. New pics soon.
