Even though I also wear Dior jeans, I also enjoy wearing my ACNEs, they are my favourite pair of plain black denims... hereīs the price difference anyway:
Dior Homme black canvas jeans: 275
ACNE black canvas jeans: 150
I have to agree with Tricotineacetat on this one, which I usually do.
These clothes are well worth buying. The jeans are superb and their tops and jackets are quite nice as well. The price is appealing, its not as expensive as say Dior Homme, but you still get the same silhouette or look. They are actually slimmer than Dior jeans, the model "Mod" has a 16 cm leg-opening, compared to current Dior jeans which has 19 cm as the slimmest. They are more accessible than DH as well.
For you Scabdinavians, check out the feature on ACNE and Dior in "HE Magazine" nr. 1 from this summer. Rupert Smith wearing the two brands from head to toe... and it works great together.
About the name ACNE, I dont understand why it should be a hindrance for buying. It shouldn't be.
Nudie was mentioned in this thread as well. Also great jeans, though a bit more casual, due to the stiching on the back pockets and their choice of denim/washes.
ACNE and Nudie, both are great slim clothes for us small and skinny boys... and girls too.
