Pocket on safado 71J is like every Safado. Not dragon ass .
Thanaz 8AR hasn't got dragon/t-rex back pocket, just the -V- i think...

You could get them in Printemps à Boulevard Hausmann diesel-addict.

That's just the preview stuff.
Crazy right?

And 8BI is expensive because it has a ton of treatments done to it.

What about the Timmens?


Rest in Peace ???? Is the EKG flat-lining for the Timmens ???

^ i agree...i really hate them on my zathan 8BK
post #69 of 150
^ haha i so agree. one of the main reasons i havent pulled the trigger on 8BK or 89Z.. looks particularly cheap on 89Z. altho i suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to customize it further with some simple nail scratching or sandpapering.

Damn, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. It looks retarded.

No joke. 89Z is a perfectly good wash, but then you have these phony-looking "scratches" that look like a half-assed afterthought. Why are they there? What the hell are they supposed to look like? Because they sure as shit don't resemble anything occurring in the natural world.

Sometimes I have to stop and wonder. How does Diesel - venerated, trend-setting creator of incredible, authentic-looking distressed washes; the brand that has made the jeans of record when it comes to fads that have dominated the past several years - produce laughably cheap looking distressed washes that wouldn't have cut the mustard 3 years ago let alone today - with prices in excess of $200? Is Diesel cashing in on some of their brand equity with these cheap, shitty distressed washes? Have they lost their compass and know no better?

I can't wait to see what SS08 has in store, but I'm apprehensive. Ho-hum distressed washes are old news. If the distressing and patina don't have special qualities than it's not fit to sell. Shit like 89Z just blows me away and makes me wonder if this is just the start of Diesel milking its cache for want of fresh ideas.

I agree with what ur saying but i think its just a matter of pecentages...not all of diesel washes are gonna be sick, and the fact that they bring out a huge number of washes their is bound to be a few cheap ones hear and there.

There's a TON of 88Z and black stuff for preview too though, It's just that this one example is being focused on at the moment.
And remember, preview is exactly that- This isnt even the main stuff for the season.

^^ Can't complain about 88Z. Of course, I should probably sit down and shut up until we see photos... The Pheyos just set me off.
