As I mentioned in previous posts, Diesel has recently redesigned some of their women’s jeans and has come out with new styles this season. They redesigned their styles to guarantee the most body-enhancing shapes, while each style is crafted to compliment a specific set of attitudes (hence their “Fit Your Attitude” campaign). Diesel has done an extensive new body type research by taking the measurements of more than 20,000 different women. Today’s review is Diesel’s Getlegg Jeans in 8880J. We recently did a review on this jean in their 882P wash (see review here) which I also really like. But I admit it was this particular wash that I was eyeing from their ad campaigns. I hummed and hawed over whether or not to get them, but I finally bit the bullet and I’m so glad that I did. These are literally one of my favorite pairs of jeans of all time.
These jeans are described as a skinny leg, although I don’t really consider these skinny jeans. They fit much more relaxed. I took my normal size in these, which worked for me because I wanted to wear these more like a boyfriend style jean. But if you prefer these to fit more tightly, then I’d suggest going down a size. Made of 80% cotton, 20% elastomultiestere, these don’t have much elasticity to them. However, they do stretch out some with wear. The denim is a very sturdy and heavy-weight denim.
The inseam on these is labeled 30 inches (actual measurements is 30 ½ inches), which I chose to roll up for a more relaxed look. These come in a 32 inch inseam as well. The rise is 7 ½ inches and leg opening is 11 ½ inches. (Measurements may vary slightly with different sizes.)
This is Diesel’s 8880J wash, which is a stone-washed looking medium blue color with fading and whiskering throughout and destroyed designs all along the front thighs and knees. Because there’s room in the knees, the holes haven’t ripped when I bend my knees. The rear has Diesel’s signature design on each pocket in gold stitch. The rear right-side waistband has a white leather Diesel patch, and there’s a Diesel label on the front coin pocket.
Washing instructions are: Wash in cold, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean, do not bleach, iron low heat (110 degrees max).
