Denim Review: Diesel Staffy 8W7

I have always had a love for Diesel from the very beginning, they are a brand that really know what they are doing when it comes to fabric, quality and fits. My review this week is on a pair of Diesel Staffy 8W7 that I bought for myself as an early Christmas present.

Since I got these jeans, I have already worn them loads. Diesel actually makes up most of my collection, I think I have in the region of 30-35 pairs from the brand and most are in the Matic cut, followed by Lowky. Those 2 cuts used to be my favourites until they changed the fit of Matic and made it bigger in the calves and smaller in the waist. I also kind of grew out of the Lowky cut because of how low rise it is. It was really refreshing for me to try a completely different cut that I had never tried before, I took a chance buying them online and it worked out very well which I am over the moon about. It’s always hit and miss with online buying.

The Staffy cut is a skinny boyfriend fit with lower down back pockets. It’s very tapered at the ankle and slim fitting in the calves. I find it to be pretty slim all over to be honest but it has that boyfriend feel to it because it’s slightly loose. The rise is quite high but it’s designed to sit on the hips so the crotch drops down a bit rather than being fitted. Unlike most of my jeans, these also has a button fly which is different, but I like it. Although I got a 32 leg, these definitely run shorter than that and fit me more like a 30-31 inch inseam. I also got a 28 which is my normal size in Diesel and they run true to size.

One thing I always love about Diesel jeans is the unique details they add to their jeans, they always add pretty buttons and cute patches on the back, random stitching and sometimes fabric inside the hem line. They really care about the tiny details that make their jeans so special. This particular pair has a silver sequin patch as you can see in the photo. I have had pairs with crystal buttons and patterned lining too.

This particular pair was made in Romania and not Italy. You can tell they weren’t made in Italy because they have no Italian flag stitching on the back like most Diesel jeans do. People have always assumed they all have the Italian flag stitching but only the jeans that were made in Italy do. I learned that a few years ago. I find where they are made to actually have no impact on the jean itself though, these are wonderful and so are a few of my other non Italy made Diesel jeans.

The main reason that I actually bought these jeans was purely because of the wash. When I first saw it online I was mesmerized by how much character it has to it and how beautiful it was. I have always been looking for the perfect pair of medium to light washed jeans with the right detailing and depth. These definitely fit that criteria. The wash is just gorgeous, it’s one of my favourite washes that I own, I think I like it even more than my 81M Matic and that is really saying something!

For a while, Diesel, for me, went a bit off track with their washes. They went quite extreme with the patterns and faker looking washes. When I originally fell in love with Diesel it was when they had the most amazing washes out like the 81M, 772, 61X, 71L, the first run of 71J and a few others. The washes were incredible and attracted everyone to the brand. For a little while after, they just weren’t the same, and now they seem to be doing the best washes again. I’m really happy about that but I don’t think my bank balance will be! If only they would release 61X again! It’s too stunning for words.

Sorry for the incredibly long review but I had to share with you my love for the brand. You can buy these jeans at Diesel online for £110 by clicking here.

  1. ah you look cute int hat hat! i can see why you love these, they are such a nice colour and fit. I’m looking for a nice pair of light denim at the moment so these may be the way to go, – i’m a diesel virgin so far but these are a great fit!

  2. sorry, meant to say THAT hat not hat hat!
    Also, these would be gorgeous for summer, with flip flops and a vest πŸ™‚

  3. WOW!!!
    Sooooo Nice Look! Nice girl! Nice colors! Nice photo!
    This you best look that I’ve see here! Such style is the most beautiful for you!
    It is charismatic and modern. You are so young in these clothes.
    Nice photo!

  4. Oh my goodness! You’re 22?! Hahaha I’ve been following I think going on two years now. I’m sure I’ve seen you post your age before, but I guess I keep disregarding it because you look 19. I, too, am a Diesel virgin. I love their washes also, but I rarely see the jeans I want on sale. When I do it’s like $40 off lol. Plus my size goes fast. How do you buy and maintain your Diesel jeans if they don’t stretch? I’m afraid if I buy them they’ll rip when I sit, squat, kick my leg up or whatever.
    The end. (:

  5. Haha, it’s ok! I normally get told I look 15 so 19 is a much bigger improvement! I think it’s my genes, my mum, gran and dad both look young for their age. Plus I don’t drink or smoke so I think that helps a tonne. I’ll be 23 this year.

    100% cotton Diesel jeans are the best made 100% cotton jeans I’ve ever come across, the fabric they use is so strong and really good quality that they don’t rip or break at all. The only thing I will say is 100% cotton ones are not very comfortable unfortunately, the fabric is pretty thick and it can be really restricting. I think that’s why most of the women’s jeans have stretch in them πŸ™‚

  6. So these are like baggy jeans? Or “boyfriend fit”?
    I do own a pair similar to these by Diesel, and they do last in time…
    The only con, not so rilevant, is that the little back patches fade away after several washes!
    By the way, I love your shoes!

  7. They are a slim fitting boyfriend, they are not really baggy, they are fitted but fit looser πŸ™‚ I think it depends on the back patch, some last a very long time πŸ™‚ And thank you!

  8. I find they make my butt look funny because of the creasing, doesn’t that bother you? I like every other aspect of Diesel.

  9. I was wondering if it was just me, but I think in this review you can especially see the weird creasing thing:

    I think it might be the placement of the pockets. Does this weird creasing go away, or perhaps is Diesel just not flattering on certain rear ends?

  10. That’s the way my butt goes πŸ™‚ It sticks out a lot and Diesel jeans are often really tight in the butt to begin with so they end up with a creasing because they are squashing it a bit. They do stretch out quite a lot if you wear them a lot πŸ™‚ It depends on the jeans and body shapes, some jeans I don’t have any creasing with from Diesel and others I do. Also the Matic back pocket is quite low down as well as the Staffy, that’s why that creases more πŸ™‚ These ones don’t have any creasing and I wore those SO much, I lived in them. These are older photos though They will probably look ok on your butt, it just depends if you have one that sticks out a lot or not πŸ™‚
