Balmain Spring Summer 2014 Biker Jeans and Trousers Size Guide

1st March 2014
Balmain Homme — The Parisian fashion house most famous for often presenting it’s luxurious and style-laden biker denim jeans has introduced it’s Balmain Spring Summer 2014 collection with an abundance of selection ranging from skinny 16cm classic denims to silver waxed effect inspired from SS11 till seasonal experimental designs from intrecciato woven to houndstooth patterns, it is no exception small wonder that it is almost sold out at Luisa Via Roma and Antonioli.

Distinction is a huge priority when it comes to a pair of fashionable bottoms, Balmain biker denim jeans and leather trousers are undoubtedly one of the most significant up to date and futuristic pair that money can buy. Though they are not quite as relaxing to wear and also not one of the most comfortable. The fit varies among all denims and trouser collection, so it is not quite true to size and fits depending not just on waist but also on leg width. Therefore if you do not have skinny or slim legs it is recommended to take the 18cm variation as to the 16cm has a skinny leg width that may not suit everyone.

Please beware, measurements are taken by hand. These are not the official measurements and sizing guide from Balmain.

    HI Maurice how does this pair of jeans fit?

    Also would a size 29 in these be too small?

    Cheers !

    I usually wear a size 30-31 for Saint Laurent Paris 15.5cm Denim.

    What would the recommend size be?

  • http://tinyurl.com/png8ve7

    To be safer, you need size 30 for these.

    I'm not too sure about the grey version at the moment, otherwise it will be updated here. You may require to inquire the size guide directly at LVR customer support. One of my readers emailed me earlier this month and told me how much he loved the double ribbed bikers, and it fits very well. This grey biker will go well with navy blazers, I highly recommend it too. :)

    Hey Maurice,
    What do you think of this runway gladiator sandal from Versace. Although you are not a fan of the brand, but i'd like to take your opinion.
    http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/versace-gladiator-sandal-item-10590976.aspx?storeid=9436

    • Who ever said I was not a fan of the brand, I love Versace. The only problem is that I couldn't pull off all the cuts and silk fabrics.

      I attended the their SS14 press event in Malaysia where they announced the new collection, saw this sandals. They are well made, but not quite my cup of tea. The logo embellishments shouts the pair to be noticed, it's quite a hard sell concept. But if you personally feel it will fit you well and compliment your lifestyle + wardrobe, then why not?

    • Anonymous

      Great to hear that you had the chance to attend their press event for SS in Malaysia.
      Based on what you said, shall i go for the Black and Red striped Givenchy Python sandal from SS 14?
      Why do you think suddenly the hype around Versace dropped?
      Another question Maurice do Chanel produce shoes for men (espadrille & sneakers) precisely. I have seen many men wearing them these days.
      Regards

    • It's entirely up to you, if you like it then get the Givenchy Python Sandals. However I personally felt they are not worth it. Python leather is not easy to maintain, and it is very delicate to scratches that will chip off the scales. More over the design is quite generic based on major sport brand designs. I wouldn't buy unless I like it so much that I have to get it.

      What do you mean by it dropped? Since H&M collaborated with Versace the hype was all over it. Just like Maison Martin Margiela when it was about to die, thanks to the mass market participation in growing the brand's awareness and allowing the mass market to acquire the designer goods at a fraction of the price.

      Personally I think it's not easy to pull off Versace. You have to be that certain male, like the ones they always use for their models to showcase their runway. It doesn't cater well to a lot of people. Even I struggle to wear a Versace,

    Hi Maurice,

    I have a question. I want to sell my Fall Winter Biker Boots (black very rare), never worn them. They are brand new with bill.

    http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mao8xjctjt1r69esvo1_500.jpg

    What do you think how much money could I get for them?

    Thank you

    • Less than $550, the most you can go for is $650 since discounted ones are already around $700-800. What size are these? I had the chance to buy them for half price during the end of the season, but I didn't because of the country I was moving to is not suitable.

    • Anonymous

      Oh man.. To be honest,Had hoped for more.. .

      They are Size 40. I don't know what to do because can't wear them. But I don't want to give them up for less than 550$, it breaks my heart.

      Maybe I try it on ebay with a higher price but with price proposal.

      I wanted to invest the money in a Burberry Leather Jacket, but I definetly need 1000$.

      Thank you for reply Bro

    • You can try eBay, size 40 is quite a popular size in Asia.

    What are they trying to do all runway shoes and sandals at one time, it is hurting my pocket lol.
    Is it the same one as the runway Maurice or???
    Thanks

    • Omg, why show me? Now it's going to hurt mine too. 980 quid is a lot to ask for and I am trying very hard to ignore it.

      But I will buy it if I see it in store. Let's pray I don't or i'll probably regret.

    • Anonymous

      Mine too although i get a VAT discount on it but still the price is steep.
      Is it the same as the one seen in the FW runway???

    • Yes, but with some teaks. It's never the same as the runway, there will always be minor differences.

    • Anonymous

      Aha great then, love the design, but the price is an issue.
      Btw is the Flame sweatshirt oversized or cuban fit?
      Is the new flame tee from pre-spring a hit as the red fighter tee in terms of popularity (almost sold out at LVR)?
      In terms of the print, so far nothing is to be compared to the red fighter tee version.

    • Its Cuban, but its consider oversize in my point of view. If you are skinny, take 1 size down, if not then take your normal size but the chest width is significantly huge.

  • Givenchy Flame Sweatshirt is oversize, the cuban t-shirt is immensely popular. There's no point in comparing both because the red fighter is a design no longer available.

  • Hello Maurice
    what is the measurement of size 30 for the "BALMAIN SS14 18CM BLACK WASHED BIKER DENIM JEANS"(Product Code: S4HT500B983-176)
    Thx
    Allen

    • Hi Allen, what size do you usually wear? I don't have the size guide with me now for size 30.

    Hi, I plan to get a black washed Balmain (biker) jeans, so your blog has come as a great help! I'm still doubting about the 17 or 18cm model, and off course the right size. I'm after a slim jeans much like a Dior 17.5cm model (for which I fit a 30/31), so I think I should go for a 17cm model, assming that the 18cm model have a fuller/baggier look in the legs? However, I am afraid of getting a size that is too skinny and I want to avoid by all means the painted-on/men legging look. I find for example ssense's current fit pics of the slim biker jeans already too skinny. From your experience, do you have any tips on what model to choose to obtain a slim look, but avoiding the legs being too skinny, or is this generally unachievable with Balmain biker jeans?

    Also, do you have any experience with the non-biker Balmain jeans such LVR's "18CM WASHED DENIM REAR TWISTED LEG JEANS"? Thanks!

    • The usual case will be that the legs fit right and the waist fits enormous, this is Balmain's design. I'm not sure why they havent corrected it, but it is like this. The 18cm versions are more true to size, but it depends and may differ from every season.

      From what you have mentioned above, describing your preference, you will need an 18cm biker not 16cm. If you take the 16cm, the legs will be extremely tight, but not as bad as Saint Laurent 15cm tight.

      http://tinyurl.com/m7jdnn7 (you need size 28 to fit Dior Homme size 30/31)

      The 18cm fits larger on the legs which will accommodate your description.

      http://tinyurl.com/qcaosug (you need size 28 to fit Dior Homme size 30/31)

      As it is your first Balmain, I would only recommend you to get the biker versions, theres not much point in spending premium for something that has less characteristics. It will only be relevant later when you have a few pairs of bikers then you can reason out to purchase non-biker Balmains :)

      Hope this helps!

    • Anonymous

      Thank you for your answers, and suggestions. The two pairs you linked to are indeed the ones I'm looking at (maybe I should get them both and return one). I'm still unsure about the 18cm model, from styling pictures these seem too full/baggy which I don't want. I might try to find a size in the 17cm model that is acceptable in terms of hem and thighs, and maybe a bit loose in the waist (which is how my DH 17.5cm model fits BTW). Its actually due to DH's lack of decent black washed 17.5 models that I'm looking into Balmain now!

    • Pardon me, but Dior Homme is a dying brand unless you're a true enthusiast of KVA's work. The price is premium, but yet I felt the collection doesn't offer seasonal mileage at the moment. There are some pretty themes, such as the FW14 polka dot series. But it's only for those who already have all the DH essentials.

      Try Saint Laurent.

      So I ended up getting the size 34US, the legs and thigh area fit perfect, but the waist is large by at least a a size. If I go down to a 33US will the the thigh area get smaller? And do you know by how much? Thanks!

    • Yes, if you take one size smaller the thigh size will go down smaller too. How does it feel now? Its stretch so it will expand.

    • Anonymous

      Maurice, I ended up going down to a size 33US, the waist fits much better, the thigh size did decrease maybe by 1/2 cm. Feels great, does the 16cm Indigo skinny cotton denim jeans fit similar?

    • Good to hear that you finally got the right size. My indigo jeans are from SS14, not the latest FW14 which fits TTS.
