Diesel continuity - Page 2

post #26 of 41
I see... thanks. I like Diesel jeans, but I don't like a lot of the styles they put out. So far, I have 2 pairs of lemmen and 3 zathan, since these are the only styles that interested me. That's why I'm not too farmiliar with the rest of their jeans.

Yeah you are absolutely right. I should have said my zathan 772's have 2 tags while both my Zaf's and 770's have 3. The wash on the Zaf's is 796.

This seems to be the reoccuring theme then, since both my lemmen and zathan 772 have 2 tags, and Dave also mention earlier that his had 2 tags. Both of our 770s have 3 tags, so you basically confirmed that I originally believed. Thanks.

how do they fit? are they similar to zathans?
I just got a pair of ZAF 796s from urban outfitters. They're more similar to the rotuck cut than the zathan - slimmer ni the leg and more flared in the cuff than zathan. Really nice jeans tho...

post #31 of 41
Hey everyone I am new here to the forum and I saw the discussion on the tags. I just purchased a pair of Zathan 772 from Urband Outfitters and they came with two tags in the front so I guess the counterfits are trying to go more towards the same tag placement, even though some diesels have 3 tags. I had to send mine back though so I could get a size smaller in the waist. I love the jeans though, its sucks they will be gone for a few days

They're not as low as the zathans but nowhere near as high as the kuratt or kratt. Just about right I'd say.

On the topic of two versus three tags I've noticed that some of the diesels I receive have two tags and don't have the date. And some have all three tags and include the date of production/issuance. The ones with two tags are for instance, I have a pair of Rame Denim Gallery DDG18's that actually only have two tags on them. Also some of the older Zathan's I've come up on in the past only have two tags. I'm not sure of the reason, but I am sure that both the Diesel's with two tags and the diesels with three tags are authentic. It might be based on when they were made or it might have to do with some variations in the batch production of the jeans. I can only speculate. I am sure just based the micro print and stitch on the tags, and mainly feel of the denim, that the two tagged and three tagged jeans are authentic. After all, what counterfeiter would counterfeit a pair of Denim Gallery's? Anything is possible but they are both authentic. Maybe that helps out a little,
peace

kks,
Hi, I am a new member of this forum .
I am just wondering if you bought the zaf 796 from the diesel store? I just bought mine from ebay (italiandepot) and I like it very much. But I noticed that the 796 wash on my zaf lacks of the stripe pattern thatis usually very obvious for 796 wash? I am abit dissapointed about this? How about the stripe pattern on your zaf jeans? How obvious is it? Is it possible to get a picture of your the whole back side of your jeans. Thanks

Yeah I bought mine from the Diesel store in Chicago. The pics are http://www.myweb.uiowa.edu/kswinton/Diesel/diesel.htm I wouldn't say the stripe pattern is that noticeable, but you can see it.

kks,
So, can you say that the stripe pattern on the new zaf 796 is not as noticeable as that on the x-rotuck 796? I think the less obvious stripe pattern on the new zaf 796 jeans cannot be not a coincidence. Maybe that's the new 796 wash.
Thanks for the pictures of the jeans, but I would still like to see the whole back side of the jeans if you don't mind. I could not see it from your present pictures. Thank's

I dont know. It appears there should be more stripes. Were these jeans in the pics washed? once you wash them, they will disappear or at least be less noticeable. I always recommend to NEVER ever wash Diesel jeans---and I mean Never. If you do, you will lose the color and they will look like you bought them from ITalianShitpot

Agree about the washing. If you look closely at the 796 washes, you'll see a sort of yellow colored whiskering around the front pockets. That will totally come off after 2-3 washings. Employees I spoke to in the store have told me that if you must wash them, do so only like every 3-6 months. One chick told me she has a pair she's owned for 4 years and never washed, and doesn't plan to.

As far as dieselofmiami, like I said, I will be posting pix of the two cardiels I got from him as soon as they arrive. Ya'll can draw your own conclusions. Zathansrule, as a personal request, unless you have personally purchased anything from those guys, please refrain from attacking them...

Apparently putting those "hard to see numbers" off the Made in Italy tag up to an UV light will make them perfectly clear and apparently the word Diesel will like appear. I've heard this from many people i know but i have no proof to back this up.

Diesel jeans are all very diff, even if you buy Zathans in one shade and Zathans in another won't guarantee they will be "EXACTLY" the same. It all depends on when they were made. I've also heard fake jeans fake periods on the tags that describe them. Another thing is that on all the 5 Diesel jeans i have, they're all light. The denim is very flexible and has that authentic look. I've also noticed they're fairly easy to rinkle around the end of the jeans, where your socks are. "Premium" demin is usually like that, unlike regular demin such as Levi's which is rough and hard.
