How to order your perfect pair of DYNS Riding Jeans?
We often get questions about the sizing of our jeans and whether they run small or large. The answer is no - we use standard size charts for our patterns and our cut is Regular. DYNS jeans are the true sized jeans. Our W32 is exactly 32inches and L34 is exactly 34inches.
You're ordering your size and you realize it is not the right fit
Several decades ago, people knew the particular fit of any jeans - they were known as the 'jeans fit.' Now, things like cargo pants, sweat pants or even sailor pants can be called jeans sometimes. Before there was only 501, but now there are 7 different styles and plenty of variations. There's just no strict understanding of how classic jeans should feel and fit anymore. We sometimes get returns from disappointed customers who found our jeans too restrictive and when we asked them which model of jeans they usually wear, their response is almost always one of the modern more 'relaxed' or muscular fit cuts.
And the worst thing is - even the best-known jeans companies manipulate their sizes. We saw jeans labeled as W33 but they were definitely W36. Ofter companies add an inch or two in order to call their pants ‘relaxed fit’ instead of making a different cut for the actual waist size.
What's your correct DYNS Jeans size?
So, how to get your perfect pair of DYNS Jeans? There's simply nothing easier than American sizing. W means waist in inches and L means inseam length in inches.
Take the daily jeans that you love the most. Measure the waist and multiply by two - that’s your W size. Now measure the inseam - that’s your L size. This method allows you to avoid misunderstandings when your beloved jeans manufacturer applies the wrong labels and you are getting DYNS Jeans that are either too small or too large.
Here we have 34'' waist ( 2 x 17'') and 32'' inseam. The size is W34L32.
Special notice for our women’s jeans
Dear ladies, this method works with women’s jeans too, but please select for your reference the most classic-looking pair of jeans you have. If you’re wearing jeans with shortened legs and selecting the same inseam length, DYNS jeans will probably be too tight for you. And vice-versa: if you’re wearing loose jeans with a belt and selecting the same DYNS waist size, you’ll receive a too-long inseam from us.
Special notice for our Cargo pants
You can’t directly compare CARGO-style pants to DYNS STRADA or any other classic jeans. A CARGO cut has a longer rise and lower central seam for more comfort. Therefore, CARGO pants will always have a shorter inseam length than classic-style jeans.
We adjusted our CARGO pants sizes and made them comparable with DYNS STRADA. So, if you wear W34L32 with your DYNS STRADA, your CARGO size will be the same. Please use the same measuring method described above, but please don’t be surprised if your new CARGO pants will arrive with a shorter inseam. The total length of the pants is the same.
About the cut
The classic cut (Regular) of our STRADA models isn’t the most comfortable cut - the jeans are a little on the tighter side, as they should be and as they have been for more than 150 years. After wearing the jeans in, they melt to your body and become like your second skin! This is crucial for biker jeans - knee protectors are the most effective when they're close to your knees. Therefore, if you're comparing DYNS sizes with the sizes of the most popular brands, please compare Regular cut with Regular cut and judge your own preferences - if you like slightly looser jeans, go one size up (W), if you like baggy jeans, go 2 or 3 sizes up but don't change the length (L)
How to be sure?
And please remember - everyone is different. It's not always possible to get the perfect fit of jeans online. We are offering a comprehensive return service. You can apply for your return on our website, get the return label and ship back your jeans at no cost to yourself.
Your glove size is the measurement around the palm of your hand and the length from the wrist up to the tip of the middle finger. If you’re right-handed, measure your right hand. If you’re left-handed, measure your left hand.
Using a fabric tape measure, wrap the tape around the dominant hand at its widest part (between your thumb and index finger) and make a loose fist. Then measure from the base of your palm, where it meets your wrist, to the tip of your middle finger. Make a note of these measurements and check our sizing guide below.
If your hand is between two sizes, always choose the larger one.
