sand_dolphin2, TicoDiesel
ounce is one the most important thing for me when i purchase my denims online.
hope this helps!

Darnoc,
71J (14oz) is too stiff for me. it'll be intresting if DIESEL releases 18 or 21oz denim, but they'll be way too stiff imo

I agree denim thickness is a factor when ir comes down to spendinf 200 or more for a pair Of jeans
post #11 of 27

can we update this thread? very useful. would like to know for other washes such as 8B9 and 8D8 and 17F (hard to tell on this one as it is coated so heavily).

 

of course, these are washes of jeans i just purchased but yet to receive.

I believe Zathan 73H is 13oz, so is Zatiny 8LD. Maybe 8LD is 13.5oz or maaaybe 14oz, anyone else wanna chip in some info?

 

Zatiny 8KL is 10oz, so is Zathan 8TC (I believe, not 100% sure)

 

I'm assuming this based on the fact that 8SS is listed as 12.5oz, and I happen to have a pair of Zatiny 8SS as well as the ones mentioned above.

 

Who else has some good info? icon_smile.gif I would like to see this thread get updated as well, it is definitely a very useful guide. Denim weight is highly important in jean selection.

post #13 of 27

anyone know what 74F is?

post #14 of 27

71j is thicker than 73j ohhhh myyyy gossshhhhhhhhhhhh.............oh my gosh cant belive it

post #15 of 27

interested in knowing this as well. also, how is the oz determined? how did the O.P. find out the oz of each wash? honestly i know diesel jeans are thicker then most but i cant tell much difference in my 8sv & 8zt jeans. only difference i can tell really is that 8sv is stretch but feels like the same thickness to me?!?

8ZT:10 OZ

770:14 OZ 

 

Lotta contrast in weight, eh ?

post #17 of 27

i'll say. i like thicker denim in general.

post #18 of 27

word, I only have 1 thinner diesel wash at the moment and all the rest are heavy denim- they last way longer and can take a beating, even wash more often if ya care to...Also, I an sure you probably know, but if not, oz. is the weight for 1 square yard of denim that will be used for a given jean wash...

post #19 of 27

but how do you find out the weight?

Over the years it was a little trial and error, I buy what I think I want and return or sell the thin denim washes, keep the thick/heavy , and also researching this as well as a few other blogs to see if people post the weight on a particular wash or join the blog and ask members the weight,also, on eBay I find a wash I like, then constantly message several sellers asking if thick or thin  .Also, I look at MANY  stores online,( or just google a particular wash, and some describe the weight) stores in many countries and some of these store under the description will have the denim weight-Amazon.com often shows the weight for instance, Just google Diesel with a particular wash that you are interested in, even if they have the wash,( like Diesel 770, as an example, was made if several models ,ever womens 770) but not in the model that you like because the wash denim weight will be the same no matter the model, so, now you have found the weight, so you can go and buy the model where ever you like and you will know the weight...

Ya, kind of a big hassle ,but it is very much  worth it to me to do the research and get the denim weight that I like- I have lost a few thousand dollars buy purchasing thin diesel jeans,and most would just sit in the closet unworn

The process was so much easier 10 years ago or so, because at that time the Diesel website listed the denim weight for each model and wash, don't know why they stopped showing that...

post #22 of 27

no i mean how do the sellers know it's 12.5 oz. i rarely see diesel release this info so how do they know the exact weight of the washes? i recently got some unbranded raw denim that is 14.5 oz but feels closer to some diesel jeans i have that are like 11 oz.

Well, I would hope they are researching the washes,brand, etc. like I do, to look at other listings for the same jean, or SOME manufacturers and SOME retail stores list the oz. on their description like I mentioned above, and I hope they are not guessing the denim weight-may I ask,where did YOU find the 14.5 oz. information for your unbranded? I assume you found the oz. on the description of that raw jean  Still, the denim oz. is not the weight of the finished jean, it is just the oz. weight of 1 square yard of the material(denim) used to make the jean.. Other wise, if the oz. is not listed in the description from the on line store or on a tag with the jean, or by phoning the store to see if an employee knows the oz. of a particular jean, then you just don't know what the exact oz, is unfortunately...Is it possible  you just weighed your raw denim to get to he 14.5 oz.? If so, that is not what is meant by denim oz.  I have some 770 wash that weighs almost 2 pounds on a scale, but the oz. is only 14 oz, if you see what I mean...example= a 770 wash in size 38W x 36L is going to weigh alot more than a 770 wash size 26W x 30 L, but the denim used to make both of  those was 14 oz  Looks like diesel and others stopped showing the oz, because they are for the most part making thinner jeans due to cost of cotton has gone way up in the last 10 years..cotton has spiked 150% since 2010 alone! Let me know if this helps or not bud...

Two premium denim stores that come to mind that show the exact denim oz,. both online and in-store, are THE JEAN SHOP and SELF EDGE-just 2 examples, so ,if a seller does his research, they can give us the denim oz. for a particular jeans that we want, but, I think a lot of sellers just go by hear-say when indicating denim oz. of their jeans, this blog too, different members have different ideas on the oz. of the same wash...

FYI another example- You had a Viker 885S = 12.00 oz,   Just found this info on an Asian denim store-so, ya, it's just hit or miss as to which stores wish to include the denim oz.
