Dainese D6 Kevlar Jeans
Excellent riding jeans, keeps it classy
These jeans are a great buy. A bit steep for jeans, but they look great, have very visible reflexive details. I'm sure their performance if you go down should justify it a bit.
I usually wear a 32, put bought a 33 to get a bit more room in the thigh. If you have big thighs say from cycling or something you might find them a little tight in the thighs like I did which restrict a bit of movement. The kevlar takes a lot of the give from the material. Mine seem to be breaking in nicely though and seem to be loosening up.
The length is 34. Usually wearing a 30 or 32 at the most. I dont find the 34 to long when on the motorcycle or awfully baggy when not.
FYI, They also do not fit over my TCX S-race boots.

High quality jeans
Fit is amazing but a little long for me at 5'8" so had them hemmed for my height but could have rolled up. Smells weird until washed a few times and worn. Overall excellent quality jeans and don't even look like riding gear. Perfect for casual street riding!

I wear a 33w 34l in regular jeans, ordered the 33 waist and they fit perfectly. Personally, I wouldn't say this was a slim fit jean but it's not baggy either, straight leg, regular fit. Nice and soft considering they're Kevlar. Hopefully, will never find out how protective they are, good looking jeans.

Great Fit, Great Look, Good Abrasion Protection
Picked these up and they are a heavier denim than typical jeans, but other than that you can't tell. Great look on the bike, I like that they are Kevlar throughout. Just wish it had some built in protection, but I was able to fix this by wearing knee guards and hip guards underneath.
They are warmer and have less breathability than standard jeans. They were also a little long for me, which was ok as I just rolled up the bottoms more.

Good style and comfort. Smells really bad.
Had to soak them in Febreeze.
Now smell like Febreeze and hot asphalt.

Perfect Jean, I was a 32 and the fit was perfect for me is Levi's Fit (32).
I Recommend it, Just wanna see it in more colors.

Good fit even for a tall guy
My first impression is that these are just a set of glorified jeans, made out of fancy material. I expected to find a little more padding, at least some foam on the hips like my adventure gear, but these are jeans in the classic sense of the word. They do have double layer protection in the most vulnerable areas, just no padding and with a slim fit, not much room to add any.
I purchased them because I'm not ready to get a set of leathers for the street ($$$) and they have to be much more up to the job than a pair of Levi's (which I know first hand how little protection they afford you). ATTGAT, baby. Live it or loose it. Anyone who's known the pain and ordeal of skin grafts doesn't question.
As for fit, I am 6'6", 235lb with a 36" inseam and size 36 fits me well. The legs are long enough and the waist is about perfect. I wear 36/36 in Levi's so that is a good measure.
I am happy with the purchase and can only comment on the effectiveness of Kevlar after a spill which I hope to never experience.

Great idea, done properly
I would generally run around town in a pair of old jeans (which incidentally cost more than the D6's). Decided to upgrade my gear once I bought a new bike and these were on the list. High quality jeans, very durable fabric which is 10x better than what I was wearing before. These fit as advertised, definitely not as baggy as most of the competition. Overall the styling details look great and other than a couple extra bits of stitching on the knee area could easily be mistaken as a stylish black jean. The fabric is quite abit thicker they're also quite abit warmer than standard jeans.
