Allow me to preface the contents of this thread by saying that I have decided this is my favorite pair of anything, ever. This is my second most recent purchase (about a month ago) followed by a pair of Thavar 888P. They are from the S/S 2012 season and have a rather drastic fade on the thighs compared to some of the last season 8X2's.
I feel as though I got a great pair of 888P's and I honestly had extremely high hopes. I was definitely not disappointed at all. However, the 8X2 just feels that little bit more special. This is one of those jeans that cause embarrassing misunderstandings on the subway: gazing lovingly into one's own crotch area is not generally perceived as socially acceptable behavior. The details are ridiculous and make you wonder about the mood and background of the Italian artisan who painstakingly applied the various stains and tears to your wunuvakind jeans...
Romanticism aside, these are just simply awesome. It is going to take something quite serious for the 8X2 to be toppled from its much deserved position as the best Diesel wash to date. For me, of course.
My girlfriend really loves these as well and encouraged me into different tasks while she snapped some quick shots for this very thread. All pictures taken with room light without flash.
