Thanaz 8B9 in stores... - Page 3
Really? Thats strange to me, I dont have a huge Diesel collection by any means, maybe 6 pairs of Zathan, a few Zatiny, one Thanaz, and a Thavar but every pair that was Made In Italy have the flag sewn into the waist band. I have one made in Tunisia Zatiny and those don't have the flag (obviously). Also, I was looking at the Thanaz 8b9 online for some time before I ended up saying "screw it" and driving 4 hours to the store in Chicago to try them on. Every pair I found online whether it was ebay, ssense, or even the Diesel website said "made in tunisia". Im very pleased that these are an Italian made pair (I really don't know how much the quality differs from the tunisian stuff) I just prefer Diesel's to be Italian lol. I don't know what year Diesel started doing the flag on the waistband but 2003 is older than any pair I own, I have a pair of Zathan 8be from 05 and I think those are the oldest pair I own.
All of my newer pairs that are made in Italy have the flag. Treasurehoard, the Diesel moderator on authenticforum, is who told me that the italian flag on italy pairs is not always there. I do not know if he was meaning just for old ones or for some new ones too. Also, Diesel puts the date their jeans were made on the tag along with the year, but in 2003 some labs did not put the year on the tag and some did. Maybe this pair you're refering to were made at a different lab than others you've seen of the same wash. I know italy has ATLEAST 5 different labs in Italy alone but maybe more.
