What's your latest purchase? (Pics required) - Page 13

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?
I never used the word inauthentic, I was implying about the quality of the denim. And what is this supposed to mean - "to many parts of the world, being made in LA, USA implies glam, chic, and cutting edge"? So all these adjectives about USA denim are not applicable for rest of the world?
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.

Also saves me from paying individual shipping costs for every single item that gets very costly quickly. I don't use a proxy per se, 99% of the time I buy the products online myself and ship them to different addresses that mail forwarding companies provide on a monthly/yearly basis.

Did you get your issue sorted though? Did cultizm get back to you??
post #304 of 3748

Yes, they did asking me to return the jeans and they also sent the replacement. They were quite nice just wish they hadn't had screwed up in the first place!

post #305 of 3748
I know. But accidents do happen. And cultizm are great at fixing it. When I got the wrong size it was my own fault but they were great, once I sent the tracking number they sent my replaciement so it was all taken care of really quick. Be sure to post fit pics coz I'd love to see what they look like on you.

They are sent to Russia FedEx. I wrote to them that in my city there is a problem with the receipt from FedEx. They just sent me the EMC as I asked. I think that cultism has the best service I've ever met.

Agreed aramis. It's just a shame when mistakes do happen.

Yeah, I got them from Yoox.  This is my first pair of Tepphar, so I'm not sure how they fit compared to anything else.  I sized up 1 from my Thanaz/Thavar size.  I'm going to order the 804k soon, though.

post #319 of 3748
Kev I agree. Got my first pair of tepphar today on 804K and I think I'm in love!!!! 😍😍😍😍
And they stack like a freaking bosssss!!!!
post #320 of 3748

I'm going to my local Diesel store in a few days, i want to buy 2 pairs of jeans but have no idea what to get at all (you know that feeling, you have money and want to buy something even if you don't know what). What are your favourite washes at the moment? I'm a skynny jeans guy, i cut my list of jeans to 3 pairs (used to have 15) and have thavar 8x2, thavar 8880m and shioner 880w.

Thanks!!

post #321 of 3748
Something dark maybe. 805A is a good bet. A black pair, tepphar 803E and a nice special grey wash, thavar 802K. If I was in your shoes that's what I'd go for.

I can't wait until Cultizm has them in 32 length.  Did you end up sizing down for the Tepphar?

post #323 of 3748
I got my usual size 32. They fit really well. You should email dejan at cultizm and ask hi when theyre getting them in. I can proxy a pair if you need them.
I just proxy a pair of shioner 802H to the thug and I had a sneek peek and they are waaaaayyyyy nicer in real life. I must own them!!!

Oh, I already did.  He said within the next 4 weeks (which was nearly 3 weeks ago).  They're only going to be a little over $200 for me from Cultizm, since shipping is free and all the VAT is removed since I live in the US.  I also have a 10% off code to use.  Just have to be patient...that's the hard part.
