They'll actually be doing exactly what I want them to do; what I'm trying to relay here is that I wish the process had some kind of stop button. I mean I want
fading and I personally dig the knee creases and what not, I just don't want an extreme fade is all and was wondering if there's a way to simply (or maybe not so simply) stunt the growth.
This is basically one example of what I don't want:ImageShack - Image Hosting :: extremefadezws6.jpg
Like I said, knee creases/fades and contrast fades wherever else is cool, but that shit above is just too
Also, I've tried on a pair of Flatheads before and love
the way they fit, feel, look...shit, even smell
- don't think I've run into/worn anything similar. Only thing I can think of that Diesel has that slightly resembles the feel and look of Flathead (or perhaps just RAW jeans in general) is 72D. I own 88Z and it is super thin denim - only looks (IMO) --slightly-- raw, doesn't feel like it one bit. Don't get me wrong, I love the wash, but it's not really comparable to the Flathead gear in any stretch of the imagination. Not to mention that the Flathead quality is (for the lack of a much more interesting juxtaposition of words) top notch. lol Plus, no natural fading with 88Z.
With that being said, unless you have recommendations for other raw pairs that fit, feel and look the same (...that aren't riding the $300 price line - with a Zatiny/Zathan-esqe leg opening that aren't Nudie), I'm pretty sure I'm going to wind up getting them. So any help with my original question would be appreciated.
Thanks for the help!
