Limited xXx denim - Page 19

post #451 of 514
so until i have my own, i'm just going to say they fit like shit, and look like a turd.
post #452 of 514
I'll wear them but I don't have to like them.

ttrshoot,

Interesting logic, but I guess it's some kinda coping mechanism.
post #454 of 514
what's interesting is, if Diesel says they're 'worth' $600 and ebay says they're 'worth' $400, suddenly $50 jeans are worth $400-600.

maybe they were soaked in snake oil?

anyone got these in 28 that they want to sell? pm me

i really think the heevan and matic 8uj is more of a collectors item. it shows you are a fan of the brand and you have a piece of diesel history. I really dont care that the wash is just ho um and the cut is kind of funky. only thing that matters to me is that diesel released them in limited numbers and not all people have them.

Did anyone get a pair of Matics in 26 or 27 that they don't want?
post #458 of 514
^^ Yep, there is a pair in the Mall, that vickaaay sells. Good luck.

P.s I have a pair of W29 that I would trade for 28 or 27.
post #459 of 514
Thank you! Unfortunately I don't love them enough to pay $200
post #460 of 514
"I wanted them BECAUSE they're $50" - begreat.
post #461 of 514
^^^yep. Plus I am a collector.
I have never stood in line for an article of, well, anything.

Now, when my husband and I were there, all the Heevens in the sizes I was looking for were sold out. So my husband purchased a pair for a girl who thought you could get a men's and a women's(as we did). She supposedly wanted them for her husband. A lot of people were saying to us just get them and sell them.

I realized the LAST thing I want to do is deal with selling pants.

So, if she ended up selling them, right on, lady.

I got a pair of Matics for my sister for Christmas (quite early, but hey...). It's a W28/L32. I have no idea of the measurement my sister would fit, but what I've heard so far the matics run quite small. Perhaps I'll trade the pair soon after my other sister finds out that I cannot make a W28 present for my "little" sister.

we'll see

Ebay is saturated with NR 8UJ Matic auctions in your size. You shouldn't have any trouble nabbing a pair for a sensible price. I imagine we'll see these auctions close for less than $150.

My one questions is how limited is "limited" really? I mean, is this at a denim gallery level where only 300-500 were made? From what it looks like at least 20 stores worldwide had them and then they were online for both EU and US.

Anyone who made it into a store when it first opened have an estimate of how many pairs were carried for each? I'm guessing maybe 30 of each per store in thirty stores tops? Then there's online, which would put the runs in the 1200 range each, well over even a large DDG run.. Any revisions to my estimate?
post #466 of 514
30,000 were made in the whole world, thats how limited. In the UK there were 200 per store, 120 heevens and 80 matics.
post #467 of 514
30,000 is a shit-ton. There's some DDGs where they made fewer than 300...
post #468 of 514
So really, this is no different of a run size than most normal releases..
post #469 of 514
^^ Oh c'mon ppl...this is Limited because they were made for Diesel 30th birthday thats how limited they are.
post #470 of 514
they're only limited to how many they can sell.

Agree on that. There may be DDGs only made in the 300s but these were different purely because they were made for an occasion, that being the 30th anniversary of Diesel, thats what makes them different to other limited editions. The price also was a very good thing, them being £30 or $50 compared to DDGs in the hundreds.
post #472 of 514
Oh yes, I wanty these limited jeans as much as I want HIV..
post #473 of 514
^So you're a bug chaser then?
post #474 of 514
do you think anyone is selling fakes of the dirty thirty?
post #475 of 514
no dude, not for a little while at least.

they wouldn't be hard to remake, but you'd be able to tell...thats for sure.
