Well, for starters, the Diesel company decided to make these jeans in LA and marketed them as such, there is absolutely nothing "inauthentic" about them, in fact they are touting the fact that they're made in the USA. Why? Because to many parts of the world, being made in LA, USA implies glam, chic, and cutting edge. If you think US labor is cheap, you don't know much about world economics, Diesel probably has to charge more for these because of the higher labor costs, etc.
I went to Cultizm's website right after reading your first posts, and their glaring error was mis-naming the wash/style of jeans. On the other hand, it was clearly stated that they were made in LA, USA and even a picture noted of the waist patch, so Cultizm was clearly showing what the jeans were all about. Is that enough explanation for why I laughed?
And according to you if labor is costly, it automatically justifies paying hefty prices for those items with no regards to quality? This is the most senseless and absurd thing I've heard in a long time. I've never seen US denim priced as high as that done by diesel. No need for teaching anyone a lesson about world economics, let me tell you a fact, if every single thing was produced in the USA, most of the USA wouldn't be able to afford those things. You should forever be grateful to the cheap labour that makes you able to afford things.
And I don't need to explain again that what I bought from cultizm was indeed from a listing of the correct jeans that read and spoke DIESEL BLACK GOLD EXCESS 8BT HARD WORN in words and pictures, however if you wish to foolishly believe that I did otherwise, you may continue to do so.
