There was some mild bantering yesterday on a NYC travel forum concerning this. A thread about stores closing in the city in general mentioned the Diesel stores. Several of the local posters felt like Diesel's heyday in their city was long past and it was over saturated with high overhead locations. It does kind of sound like Renzo's statement above. Perhaps as Diesel pushed to be more available and mainstream, it lost some of its cachet amongst the notoriously fickle...
NYC rents are going through the roof these days no doubt, but all of the stores that closed had been open at least five years or more. As far as the US website Jennifer, diesel.com was a true home page. Links to their latest collections, lookbooks, campaigns, etc. You had to click through to go to the online store.

I'm heading to NYC this weekend, their Memorial Day sale is always great.

Assuming you are talking about the brown suede motorcycle style jacket with the studded lapels, I first saw it in person at the LA flagship on Melrose back in February. I like the studs, walked right up to it...then turned it around and saw the screen print all over the back. THAT ruined it for me and I guess I wasn't alone. Soon after they released a "naked" version with no print on the back. I would probably have bought it when it was 30% off recently but I already...
