Hello all, I took some pictures of here missing Zathans. I hope you enjoy it.

Zathan 71S





Zathan 8BK





I know both washes aren't rare, but sometimes the pictures from eshops and from owners are different - so you can compare...

Everybody knows that this wash is a must have! It's really hard to find and RARE.
I've been told that the reason it is so hard to get is because the distress treatment of this wash brought many durability problems to Diesel. Many of the Zathans 713 have been quickly suffering of important tears which made Diesel to take quantities of 713 off retail. (I'd like to know about your opinion about this legendary topic(?)). It is said that only the production for Asia was almost without problems and that's why there are maybe more "still in life"713 there than anywhere else in the world(?)...

Whatever mine is not in perfect condition and had to be a bit customized! I bought it form an HFmember a while ago and I must confess than even if a big too loose to me, I LOVE it (and I wear it loose! lol!)

These are sick
do they stretch a lot with time?
do you think that washing it might "break" the resin and make it stretch more?

713 are streching quite a lot with time.
Washing is breaking the resin
But time patina is just incredible!!!

These washed up on Ebay, Zathan 471.

^ What is GOING on with this pair? That's one of the ugliest Zathan washes I've ever seen.
post #167 of 209
fashion pants gone wrong
post #168 of 209
Woah! That's nuts.

There's always an unturned stone when it comes to Zathan.
post #169 of 209
Zathan beats any cut...anytime...anywhere...
post #170 of 209
haha, yeah, those are so fugy, pretty funny. It;s actually kind of surprising that that's from this decade to me... it's like some 90s pants or something right?

Speaking of, I was going to say it's like the material from some Girbaud jeans, you know, circa 1997, but couldn't remember how that shiz was spelled, and ended up here after googling for it: Marithe Francois Girbaud Boutique Store Shop

Are they fing for real with those cuts???

Anyways, that's what makes Zathan fun, there's so many washes out there that it keeps me searching for Zathan on ebay. Plus it keeps my tailor happy, taking in the legs in to an acceptable level of boot (which is pretty much none at all if you ask me)
post #171 of 209
I still don't have the nerve to get my Zathans tailored, but I don't wear them anymore... Hard to give up 86T y'know. How's the result with your Zathan-tinys Robness?
post #172 of 209
I gave my 86t to my local tailor trusting him...and telling him to keep the original hem + reducing the flare...big mistake, reduced hem is OK but hem is ruined...:'( she cut the original and made a crappy one instead, straight, without any wrinkles or anything.
post #173 of 209
^ try to fix the "new" hem with various sandpapers, when it's done well, it will looks great! you can find some thread with this here.
post #174 of 209
Saddock - Never go back to that tailor again, and let them know that they ruined a collector's item. Get mad. That is the most frustrating thing... that happened to me once. Make sure they know they f'd up, sometimes it's ok to get pissed off.

- I'd say it turned out pretty well, no better or worse than Cutup's mods. You're out in LA right? Go to one of those fancy denim places, they'll hook it up... Denim Doctor? Something like that. If you're using someone else, give them a pair of Zatiny (or Safado or whatever you're trying t achieve) that way they have a template. It's very important that they start at about below the knee. I had a pair done by a local seamstress in Austin for 20 bucks, because i was tired of paying 30 at the nicer place - and she did it way below the knee on a pair of 8AA... it just doesn't feel right.

zdenal - Yeah, I've done the same. It worked well with 70Z and 772, never tried it with something more subtle... but it could work. It's important to note that the crinkling is pretty much impossible to replicate though... also, a lot of places try to use really thin thread - which looks like shit If they use a thick thread and doube or even triple stitch, so that the thread is embedded in the material vs on top, it can look pretty convincing.

FYI for anyone in LA who wants to know...they are called Denim Revival now. Ask for Andra. She is the owner and is very nice.
